Athletes Now Turning to Fitness Barre to Help Them Improve Performance

People are no long using ballet barres simply for dancing or fitness. A number of athletes are now turning to the fitness barre to help them improve their performance as well. This trend is being followed by athletes in a number of different sports, and is popular among men and women alike.

Swimmers are taking to the barre to learn rapid-fire foot drills in order to build speed and balance. In doing so, they are also strengthening their core and preparing their arms and legs to perform extreme movements while in the water.

Hockey and soccer players are learning ballet barre exercises in order to improve their flexibility, speed, endurance and range of motion. In fact, NHL goaltender Ray Emery has touted that fitness barre workouts are largely the reason for his return to the league after suffering debilitating hip problems.

Ballet barre workouts can be combined with other components such as stability balls, free weights and exercise bands to help firm and tone muscle. As a result, they have become quite popular with people who perform martial arts or boxing.

The fact that cardio can be incorporated into a routine has allowed long distance runners to build their endurance, thereby allowing them to finish races much sooner. Long distance cyclers can benefit not only from increased endurance, but enhanced balance and stability as well. Specialized workouts have even been created especially for basketball players and skaters.

Fitness barre routines have a number of benefits for athletes of all skill levels. To purchase a ballet barre that will help improve your own athletic performance, contact us.

Burn Calories with Boss Ballet Barres

Ballet barres pose an intricate, and amazing way of burning off calories. Some of the best bodies are ballet bodies. Remember the fine physiques of Svetlana Lunkina, Margot Fonteyn, Beryl Grey, and Darcey Bussell? Ballet exercising is rather slow-paced but very transforming. It's softness is performed over hours and days so body fat melts away.

Here's what owner Allison Bedford, in Sagniaw, Michigan says about calorie burning with barre exercises, "participants can burn up to 500 calories per class, even though the sessions focus on small, repetitive movements." 

From the "Medicine and Science in Sports and Exercise Journal,"
  • If you weigh roughly 130 pounds: 266 calories burned per hour
  • If you weigh roughly 155 pounds: 317 calories burned per hour
  • If you weigh roughly 180 pounds: 368 calories burned per hour
  • If you weigh roughly 205 pounds: 419 calories burned per hour

In an amazing study performed by Dr. Chris Scott, he reveals that "as much as 95% of the calorie cost of intense anaerobic exercise can come AFTER exercise".

Barre exercising is anaerobic. An anaerobic organism's metabolism doesn't require free oxygen like aerobics. This explains the "afterburn effect", the calories that keep burning off after exercising. Wouldn't you love to burn over 500 calories with half the exertion? This may be an intriguing style of exercise for building lean muscles in addition to cardio rituals such as: jump-roping, stair-climbing or running. If your goal is to lose weight, this just might be for you.

"An imperishable commitment equals a lifetime with durable equipment".
