Barre Fitness – Are You Up To The Challenge?

Joseph Coupal - Tuesday, July 09, 2019
Answer is Fitness - Barre in North Attleboro, MA

Barre fitness is a compound workout which fuses ballet-inspired maneuvers with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training. Barre classes usually integrate a ballet barre and apply classic dance twitches such as plies, together with static stretches. Barre also concentrates on high reps of small range movements. However, what makes it totally different from other workouts is the isometric movements which are usually performed by keeping the body still while specific muscles are contracted.

Most classes begin with warm up exercises that includes pushups, tricep dips, and planks prior to moving to the barre. This is designed to concentrate on leg and glute toning and strengthening. Barre classes usually end the session on the mat where the session turns to core strengthening. Then onto a yoga-inspired cool-down. Resistance bands and light hand weights are sometimes employed to add challenge to the workout. This helps develop lean muscles.

So if you want a low-impact workout that can tone your glutes and legs, try barre fitness class at our North Attleboro, MA fitness center. For more information about barre fitness, contact Answer is Fitness.

The Uber Importance of Hydration When Working Out

Joseph Coupal - Monday, July 08, 2019
Answer is Fitness - Physical Fitness in North Attleboro, MA

Summer is an great time to work out outdoors. The Vitamin D you receive from sunlight aids in absorption of calcium, magnesium, phosphate and other essential minerals for our body. However, when you decide to take a hike, jog nearby hills, or cycle during the summer, make sure to stay ahead of your hydration. Working out in the heat can be dangerous. We are susceptible to dehydration as we lose fluids from physical exertion. The body releases heat through the process of sweating. Consequently, it is critically important to replenish the lost fluids by drinking water or beverages that contain electrolytes. A well hydrated body improves performance and guards against heat stroke.

When you go outside to workout, make sure to carry a water bottle at all times. Hydrate continually. Don't wait until you feel thirsty. If you find that your urine is colored after workouts, this is a very clear sign that your body is not getting properly hydrated. Dehydration will cause lethargy, weakness, and potentially life threatening conditions. So if you don't want to put yourself at risk, hydrate before, during, and after your workout.
