What to expect from a Parks Barre workout, by Becky Caracci

 

If you are staying on top of fitness trends you know that “barre workouts,” which are designed to give you a long, lean dancer-like physique, are all the rage these days. Barre studios are popping up in every major city across the globe, along with a variety of DVDs you can do at home. While all barre workouts differ slightly in structure, most methods incorporate exercises done at a ballet barre (you can use the back of a chair at home) combined with elements of ballet, Pilates, and yoga.  Barre exercises rely mainly upon one’s bodyweight for resistance, and the moves challenge your core stability and balance. Barre workouts are designed to help an individual achieve a “dancer’s body” — strong, sleek, and streamlined.

One reason for their success is that they really provide results. Most barre enthusiasts rave about the physical benefits of the workout.  With consistency, participants find that their bodies become slimmer and more “chiseled.”  Others simply get addicted to the fun dance inspired workouts set to great music and challenging choreography.  Granted, no workout program will provide these stellar results if you’re not also watching your diet.
