Why have we introduced Barre?
A large proportion of our community love to workout at home and with this in mind we are launching Barre which is an immersive fun way to workout at home which requires little equipment.
What is Barre?
Barre is a type of fitness style that incorporates elements of ballet, Pilates and yoga. The exercises are usually low impact, high intensity targeting every muscle fibre, ones that usually cannot be reached in traditional home and gym based workouts. Inspired by highly skilled choreography that you would usually find in ballet, barre is a very unique workout style. To the naked eye, barre looks gentle, with very small movements; to the person taking part: you will experience a gruelling burn like no other!
