STUDIO One in Nettlebed is running courses of StudioBarre classes at times to suit all schedules — on Saturday mornings, Mondays at 5.30pm and Thursdays at 11am.
The sessions combine the new latest craze of the BarreConcept method, combined with more personal elements from trainer Sarah’s background of dance training.
The class combines the precision of Pilates with the technique of ballet, the alignment of yoga and the strength from sports conditioning.
The workout produces dramatic results that sculpt and redefine the entire body, without even being a dancer. The low impact total body workout lifts the butt, tones the thighs, flattens the abs and sculpts the arms, whilst protecting the joints. Small isometric contractions are performed and integrated with an interval training approach that burns fat and improves cardiovascular fitness.
The result is a body that is realigned, rebalanced and works harmoniously and efficiently. Stretches are performed after each strength section of the class to ensure muscles are re-lengthened to create a body that is strong without the added bulk of other regimes.
