If you’ve been looking for a new workout to shake up your normal routine as we head into the New Year look no further!

Barre workouts are the latest craze for women looking for a great total body workout, but make no mistake; Barre is not for the faint of heart. Barre workouts target your butt, thighs, arms, abs and burns fat utilizing the ballet barre to perform small isometric movements.

What’s great about this workout is that the Barre technique protects your joints since it does not involve any bouncing or jumping and each section of the workout is followed by a stretching section in order to create muscle without bulk.

The hour long workouts pay attention to all the areas we would otherwise neglect and the peaceful environment gives you a Zen like feeling similar to yoga.

Barre workouts are a great way to challenge your body and push it to new levels, so if you think you’re up for it, add this new workout to your routine and kick your 2013 fitness level into high gear!

    I teach zumba, box, run, practice yoga and lift weights. I work out 5 days a week. NOTHING prepared me for Pure Barre. It is the hardest exercise routine I’ve ever done, but definitely the most rewarding.

      I couldn’t agree more. Pure Barre is an absolute beast. It was harder than every workout I’ve tried.
