Busting The Barre Workout Myths

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 21, 2020
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.

Staying within your recommended calorie range will keep your internal body fired up so that you have more capacity to burn stored fat. Circuit training is your tool in working to be the best possible version yourself. It answers your needs especially if you are looking for variety in your workouts. Circuits will handle your weight loss, strength, athletic performance and core training.

When you know that you are giving it your best shot, Circuit training will be an extremely powerful tool. It is a low resistance weight workout with 2-3 minute rest intervals involving cardio and is focused on improving muscle tone. It will burn more calories during and in the time following exercises which lead to your weight loss goal. It will improve your cardiovascular system, strength, mobility, etc. The good thing about Circuit training is its adaptability. In this training, participants rotate through a number of stations, performing different exercises for repetitions within a specific time with minimum rest until the circuit is completed. It consists of several movements including bodyweight, weighted, and dynamic exercises. There are many variations that will be adapted to meet your goal or need.

Doing exercise mindfully and healthy eating is fun. It is exciting to explore new exercises or anything that keeps you interested and adds some spice to your program. The more variety you will put in your diet and your exercise routine, the more stimulating it will be. Circuit training will naturally push the participants a little further in each session, as a result, some competition will make a lot of difference. That makes it easy to put your best efforts forward and a major metabolic return you will get on your investment.
