Barre Fusion 101
Barre Fusion, Barre, Pilates, functional fitness the terms are endless! What do they all mean?
Barre is a workout inspired by Ballet and dance movements.
Pilates is core based movements created by Joe Pilates.
Functional fitness is fitness based on moves that you perform in daily life.
Barre Fusion is my version of all those fitness styles in one class. You do not need to be a dancer or crossfit champion to take this class! It is meant for everyone that enjoys easy access to a great workout! Props are used to enhance and challenge muscles in a new way. They can be used to assist a body part or to challenge a muscle group. All the space needed for this class is the space your mat takes up.
Great for a small apartment and neighbor friendly. No jumping or heavy weights needed! The largest prop you will need is your mat, everything else can easily be stored in a small basket or cabinet.
Curious what to wear on your feet? I always used grip socks because I find my body has better balance compared to shoes.
Grip socks are great for hard floors but sneakers can be worn as well, of course! Rather be barefoot? Totally fine- your feet, your floor 😎
What can you expect during a Barre Fusion class? A live Barre Fusion class will give you a 45 minute total body workout. All levels are welcome and always ends with a cool down stretch. You will have your movement and form watched and corrected via video. Classes are kept small to keep that intimate studio vibe alive in our homes. Sign up for the day/times that work for you!
In the on-demand Barre Fusion classes you have the option to pick from 50+ videos. Options for everyone based on length, body part, level, props, standing or floor, and style. Each video includes music and instruction. Modifications are given in every video and options to make a move more challenging. Some videos include a final stretch but there are also stretch videos available. On-demand videos are available by monthly subscription that you have access to 24/7.
