Strength Training and its Benefits 10/4/2013 20:42:06 posted by: the barre studio

category: health and wellness

We’ve had this conversation with countless clients at the barre: as a society we are so focused on the number on the scale to tell us “how we are doing” in terms of our fitness – when we really shouldn’t be using it as our main gauge. While it’s difficult to let go of a weight obsession, it’s more important to focus on trying to look and feel your best, rather than necessarily weighing your lightest. We recommend taking measurements or gauging how your clothes fit to track progress. Our studio’s focus is building lean muscle through our low-impact exercises to help you look and feel more toned and sculpted. And when we say “muscle”, we are talking about feeling and looking stronger, more defined and leaner…not bulkier, let there be no question. What you gain from strength training at the barre is much more than could ever be reflected on a scale: our exercises are designed not just to burn calories, but to build that lean muscle mass and while you’ll look better as a result, that’s just the beginning. You’ll gain: 1.Increased bone density, reducing your risk for injury & osteoporosis 2.An increased metabolic rate: muscle is much more efficient at burning calories than fat – the more muscle you create, the more calories you’ll burn all day (& the leaner you’ll look!) Join us in turning your eyes away from the scale and rather, trying to eat and exercise to simply feel and look better at whatever weight that might be! And by the way, we happen to specialize in making exercise just about as fun as it can be, as well!

The Barre - heart health! 2/6/2014 16:39:24

This week is women's heart week and TOMORROW is National Wear Red Day
to promote heart health for women! The Barre focuses on creating a healthy lifestyle
by offering one hour, high energy and individualistic classes that can be tailored to any
fitness level. (whether you are in shape to run a marathon or haven't exercised in years)


Rachel, the co-owner of The Barre weighs in on heart health and how The Barre can help you achieve you're ideal health!
"Many factors that weigh in on women's likelihood to develop heart disease are genetic and out of your control - but staying active, exercising and maintaining a healthy weight are some of the key preventative tools and are completely in your control! We love that we have clients that range in age from 15-70 getting their best workout in class - it's important and necessary to stay active at any age and to challenge yourself regardless of your fitness level. If exercise isn't fun or doesn't get results, you're not going to do it - we know our classes give incredible results and we try to make every class fun so it makes it easier to make it a part of your routine!  If weight loss is one of your goals, barre classes like ours are key because they are strength training classes. The more lean muscle you create in your body (our goal every class), the higher your metabolism will be everyday - so it is one of the most efficient ways to lean up and lose weight! You will absolutely leave our classes feeling proud, rejuvenated and strengthened - ready to take on the rest of your day!"




barre_01


Inside a Barre class you will hear words and phrases of encouragement that focuses on YOU,

such as,"Tell yourselves you can!" and "You came for change so challenge yourself!".





The class warms up with core engaging stretches and exercises. The class warms up with core engaging stretches
