Bethany Athletic Club’s Barre Classes
Our barre classes incorporate a ballet barre and use classic dance moves like plies alongside deep stretching. Joining a barre class means that you will also focus on high reps of small-range movements.
What to Expect at Our Barre Classes
A lot of our classes begin with a warm-up. This can incorporate a combination of push-ups, tricep dips, and planks before the instructors move the class to the barre. Once you’re at the ballet barre, the focus turns to toning your legs and glutes with isometric movements that hold your body still while you contract specific muscle groups.
Who Benefits the Most From Barre Classes At Bethany Athletic Club?
Barre workouts are a holistic full-body workout that is specifically great for strengthening your core and toning your glutes and legs. Since barre classes are low-impact, it’s a great option if you’re recovering from an injury (but please do let our instructors know!). Many barre workouts can be modified so they are a safe option for pre or post-natal exercise. Barre classes are also a great option for members who are looking for a good cross-training option to pair with other workouts like running, weight lifting, or cycling. Barre is great with each of these because it strengthens the muscle groups you use for each without pushing your body too far.
What Should You Wear to Barre Class
Workout attire can make or break your exercise class experience. When choosing what to wear to Barre class, think along the lines of yoga wear. Many people choose to wear ballet slippers, but socks or going barefoot will work, too.
