Busting The Barre Workout Myths

Answer is Fitness - Barre Sport in Foxboro, MA

You might have reservations about trying Barre fitness because of some misconceptions circling out there. Today, we will debunk the following common fallacies about the Barre workout so it won't keep you from experiencing all the amazing benefits you can reap from it.

1.) You need to be a dancer.

You easily get intimidated by the ballet-like movements adopted by the program. We know for a fact that ballet is a strict form of dance that requires precision and a great deal of flexibility. But in Barre class, it's not a prerequisite. Rather, through Barre, you will improve your flexibility (and you’re your graceful movement) over time. We would like to emphasize that Barre is for everybody who is interested to join in and experience the fun of losing weight through group dancing. It is one of THE most celebrated group exercises because of the social support between the exercise participants. So, you don't have to be a ballet dancer to be part of this program.

2. ) Boys are not allowed.

When we say the Barre is for everybody, that in fact includes men. As a matter of fact, a lot of men incorporate Barre into their weekly workout routines because it is absolutely a great active-recovery class. Those who engage in sports also consider Barre fitness as a workout regimen because it targets even the smaller stabilizing muscles which helps in lowering risks of injury.

3.) It is too difficult.

We mean it when we say it is for everybody and this means across all fitness levels. It may appear hard but once you get the hang of it, you'll definitely come back for more. Personal trainers can also modify the routine to help you succeed.

4.) It constantly requires barre.

Although most fitness gyms with barre programs have it, it doesn't mean participants are always going to use it, especially in the earlier phase of the program. Besides, there are other objects you can use like countertops, chairs, walls, etc. So, it is also possible to perform the workout at home. The purpose of the Barre is to support your balance while performing the exercise, so anything that you can grasp will suffice.
