With just seven weeks to until Christmas, thoughts turn to party season. You might have a killer LBD at the ready, but do you have the confidence to make a memorable, impactful and elegant entrance? Luckily, you don’t have to be a ballerina to achieve a dancer’s physique and poise.
There’s a reason ballet inspired workouts are so popular with celebrities including Taylor Swift, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and Katie Holmes. Barre based workouts are low impact but high intensity, helping fans create and maintain lean, toned physiques. And because you see results after every workout, you can make a difference to your silhouette right up until the last minute.
You don’t have to be a Hollywood A-Lister to achieve your dream body. Barreworks, based in a beautiful Richmond studio, offers a range of ballet inspired workouts so no two classes are ever the same. Teachers include Royal Ballet School trained dancers, so you know you’re learning from the very best. If you can’t make it to the studio, simply visit www.barreworks.co.uk to check out all-new online classes.
During every Barreworks class, you’ll work out your entire body. Over time you can expect a lifted bottom, trimmer thighs, more defined arms and all over toning and sculpting. With exercises involving dynamic and static movements, isometric holds and core strengthening, this fun, fast paced workout is deceptively challenging. While your cardiovascular stamina will be improved, you won’t be jumping around or sweating so this is a perfect class for any time of day, even lunchtime, with no need to shower afterwards.
