Move over Zumba! There’s another dance-based workout that has all the celebs buzzing. The Bar Method is a complete one-hour workout that efficiently changes student’s bodies. It works by targeting problem areas, improving posture, safely strengthening, and slimming down muscles.
This routine puts a special focus on giving every student personal support to help them achieve their individual goals. The routine also mixes up ballet moves with core conditioning, yoga, Pilates, and weight training. It could really be a good option to dance your way to a longer, leaner, tighter—and more graceful—body.
“The Bar Method is a low-impact, highly effective way of working your muscles that makes them lean and long,” says Liza MacFadden, a fitness instructor at Studio Fusion in Huntingdon Beach, California.
According to her, these workouts typically include 10 minutes of the upper body, 15 minutes of thigh exercises, 15 minutes of feet work, and 15 minutes of core exercises.
The results of bar workout dance classes are amazing. Frequent participants report that they’ve lost weight, have better posture, and have increased stamina and energy. Other popular ballet-inspired barre workouts include Physique 57, Cardio Barre, and Barre 3.
Celebrity Fans: AnnaLynne McCord, Catherine Zeta-Jones, Kim Kardashian, Shakira, Rihanna, Beyonce, and Vanessa Hudgens.
Who needs the same boring treadmill, elliptical, or StairMaster when you can belly dance your way to a hot bod! Classes are popping up all over the country, thanks to this ultra-fun workout. It tones the abs, tightens the hip area, and works the waist at the same time.
For one, Shakira has been into belly dancing since the age of 4. As a result, she has developed her own Latino variation of this exotic Middle Eastern tradition. “It’s something that was practically given to me at birth,” she said in an interview with a German magazine ‘Fit for Fun.’
But the Colombian singer/songwriter is not the only A-lister who fell in love with this workout. Veteran actress Catherine Zeta-Jones likewise did cut a class act with her hypnotic swivels in the 1990 movie, 1001 Arabian Nights.
Well, it’s actually not as tough as you think it is. Belly dancers aren’t just wiggling and jiggling their hips. Rather, they’re getting an ab workout that sculpts almost every single muscle in their core. The routine also hits hard-to-target, deep transverse abdominals. Gentle on the joints, it promises core balance, toned abs, improved flexibility and posture. Additionally, one gets better digestion, less back pain, and reduces menstrual cramps.
Celebrity Fans: Kim Kardashian, Katie Holmes, Jessica Biel, Sandra Bullock, Carrie Underwood, Amanda Seyfried, Christina Applegate, and Katie Couric.
With an estimated 1,000 calories burned per one-hour class, it is easy to see why so many A-listers are flocking to get their boot camp on with Barry. Voted “The Best Celebrity Workout” in multiple publications, the high-energy, action-packed class with a killer playlist actually makes interval training fun.
Torch calories, build muscle and improve your cardiovascular system with this one-hour interval signature training workout. The one-hour class is consists of 25-30 minutes of interval training on the treadmill plus 25-30 minutes of strength training using free weights, resistance bands, body bars, and kettlebells.
