I am SO excited to be trying this brand new barre program in January! If I'm being honest, I've always been a little jealous of the women who took barre classes...for a few reasons. First, because they look incredible and attained that lean, trim look without doing a ton of jumps or running. Second, because they are also super flexible like dancers! I can remember after having my kids feeling like my hips just DON'T move the same. And that's still a major issue for me. I just know this barre program can help my hips regain that mobility I've been missing. And third, because of their incredible POSTURE! Dancers carry themselves so gracefully and - hey - as a short girl only measuring up to 5'2", I need all the help I can get to stand taller! Needless to say, I'm PUMPED about having this program available to me in just a few more weeks!
The workouts are challenging yet low impact. If you are familiar with the Beachbody Yoga Studio or 3 Week Yoga Retreat program, you'll remember the trainer who designed Barre Blend, Elise Joan. Her body is INSANELY fit and I found it a little hard to believe that she sculpted it with a barre workout style. Her results are all Barre Blend!!! And now we can get this look too - this is going to be incredible!!
Barre workouts have been one of the hottest fitness trends for years, with devoted fans raving about their results without lots of impact, while improving posture and flexibility.
The dance-inspired moves are fun yet challenging, and they make you feel just a little more graceful. So what if you could get the best barre workout — taught in real time, just like in a studio — without leaving home?
Barre Blend is a new low-impact, high-intensity, and high-energy workout program from our own barre expert, professional dancer, and 3 Week Yoga Retreat co-creator Elise Joan. Check out what the program looks like in this video.
Elise has created the perfect fusion of ballet barre, Pilates, and cardio interval training, designed to help you burn fat and create a lean, toned physique.
The workouts are 30–40 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 60 days. Elise leads you through each workout in real time, which makes you feel like you’re in a high-end barre studio with a super-supportive community.
To keep you inspired throughout the program, Elise has created Daily Motivation Cards that help you celebrate your achievements and cultivate a positive mindset.
What Kinds of Workouts Are Included in Barre Blend?
Elise takes inspiration from her years as a professional dancer and fitness instructor to design full-body workouts that include high-rep, small-range movements and isometric holds, as well as compound exercises, targeted core work, and dynamic stretches. Although each class is a total-body workout, Elise adds a special body-part focus each day for extra-targeted toning.
And to make sure you get the best results possible, Elise adds cardio interval training to each workout to keep your heart rate up and help you burn maximum calories and fat.
No Ballet Barre or Dance Experience Is Required
Everyone is already asking me about this - NO, you don’t need a ballet barre to do Barre Blend!! You can use the back of a strong & secure chair, your couch, a counter, or just about any sturdy household object that’s the right height. You’ll use light weights and optional Beachbody Resistance Loops to bring the burn while strengthening and toning all over. And there’s no complicated choreography. Elise has chosen the perfect combination of graceful and effective moves.
Who Is Barre Blend for?
Barre Blend is designed for everyone, of all ages and fitness levels. If you’ve never done a barre workout before, or if you’re just starting out, you can follow the modifier who does a slightly easier version of each move.
“Barre Blend is a low-impact program with high-impact results. It’s not only effective, but it’s safe to do every day. It strengthens and tones the body while helping to prevent injuries and improve stability, mobility, and flexibility.”
She adds, “In creating Barre Blend I have seen definition and streamlining in my own body that I forgot was possible! This program will take you to the next level. It will challenge you physically, mentally, and emotionally. And I’m here to help you realize your full potential and live your best life.”
