FAQ: I Love Cardio, Is Barre Right For Me?

By Blog

You’re a cardio junkie, you’ve seen some clips of Barre classes, and you don’t get what all the fuss is about. They’re barely moving – how can that be a good workout?

Our runner-junkie, marathoner, and studio manager, Denise, is here to break down just how effective Barre can be as a complement to your cardio routine. Barre makes your stronger, improves flexibility, and provides a nice balance to some higher-impact, more jarring forms of cardio.

We’d love to chat with you about how Barre can help support YOUR fitness goals.

The change that comes with a new fitness routine can be incredible. Many of our clients see the difference in their posture and tone in as little as a month.

However, after 3, 6, or 12 months at the Barre, you might feel like you’re not seeing as much change. That’s totally normal! Doing the same thing time and again is going to get you the same results. The key to change is variety, intensity, and consistency. Here’s Rita to break it down:
