Barre Up

Barre Up

Barre workouts are very popular as a way to tone the hips, legs, and core by combining movements from Ballet, Pilates, and Yoga. These videos use a ballet barre to enhance standing exercises for a full body challenge. Strengthen and tone your hips, legs, and feet in many barre and ballet exercises plus Pilates exercises to enhance core strength in the abdominals, back, and shoulders. You do not have to be a dancer nor do you have to have a barre. A chair, wall, or counter-top will do. This are super fun and challenging workouts for all levels.
