Ballet Barre for Your Home Fitness Studio
Ballet is an excellent way to get lean and muscular. Over the years it has gained in popularity in the sports and fitness world. For example, pro football players use it to improve flexibility. Leading magazines, like Women's Health, publish exercises you can do at home--including ballet moves:
"The secret to scoring a dancer's trim and toned shape is to work your muscles less than you're used to. Yep, you read that right. Dancers practice concentrated movements that function as deep sculpting tools to create long, lean muscles."
You can go to your local dance studio to practice your moves. For some people, though, having your own at-home fitness studio makes more sense. For those who live too far from the nearest studio, or whose work schedule clashes with class schedules, working out at home is best.
One possible downside to working out at home can be the lack of an instructor and specific equipment. Ok, that's two possible downsides. While we can't help you with a personal trainer to perfect your moves, we can provide one piece of quality equipment for your home fitness studio. A typical collection of workout accessories might include mats, hand weights, and music. A solid, professional ballet barre is essential to any good ballet workout.
If the practiced, fluid moves of a ballet routine already have a place in your heart and home, then you know how important a quality barre is. Having one is essential to maintaining proper positioning and balance, as well as safety.
