At Home Barre Classes Are Here!
Barre Blend is HERE!!
Barre workouts have been one of the hottest fitness trends for years, with devoted fans praising the way they sculpt and tone without lots of impact, while improving posture and flexibility.
The dance-inspired moves are fun yet challenging, and they make you feel just a little more graceful. So what if you could get the best barre workout — taught in real-time, just like in a studio — without leaving home?
You’ve been asking for it, and the Beachbody team heard you loud and clear.
What Is Barre Blend?
Barre Blend is a new low-impact, high-intensity, and high-energy workout program from Beachbody's very own barre expert, professional dancer, and 3 Week Yoga Retreat co-creator Elise Joan.
Elise has created the perfect fusion of ballet barre, Pilates, and cardio interval training, designed to help you burn fat and create a lean, toned physique.
Get ready to feel graceful, strong, and gorgeous in just 60 days!
The workouts are 30–40 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 60 days. Elise leads you through each workout in real time, which makes you feel like you’re in a high-end barre studio with a super-supportive community.
You’ll feel the burn as you sweat, stretch, and strengthen to energize your entire body. It’s meant to be challenging, but as Elise says, you have to defy your limits if you want to define your body.
To keep you inspired throughout the program, Elise has created Daily Motivation Cards that help you celebrate your achievements and cultivate a positive mindset.
What Makes It Unique?
Barre Blend is Beachbody’s first barre program, and with Elise Joan, our very own barre expert, professional dancer, and 3 Week Yoga Retreat® co-creator as your trainer, you know you’re going to get amazing results. Elise draws inspiration from her extensive fitness and dance background to design full-body workouts that include high-rep, small-range movements and isometric holds, as well as compound, full-range exercises, targeted core work, and dynamic stretches. And every 30- to 40-minute workout includes light weight training and cardio intervals to keep your heart rate up so you can burn maximum calories and fat.
You’ll work out with Elise and the cast in real time, 5 days a week, which makes you feel like you’re in a high-end barre studio with a super-supportive community. Best of all, no dance experience or ballet barre is required. With Elise’s impeccable cueing and any sturdy household object at the right height (such as a chair, sofa, or countertop), you’ll be able to unleash your inner dancer with full self-expression right from your first workout. And to keep you motivated and uplifted, Elise has created “I AM” Daily Motivation Cards with her most inspirational messages to help you cultivate a positive mindset every day.
What Kinds of Workouts Are Included in Barre Blend?
Elise takes inspiration from her years as a professional dancer and fitness instructor to design full-body workouts that include high-rep, small-range movements and isometric holds, as well as compound exercises, targeted core work, and dynamic stretches.
Although each class is a total-body workout, Elise adds a special body-part focus each day for extra-targeted toning.
And to make sure you get the best results possible, Elise adds cardio interval training to each workout to keep your heart rate up and help you burn maximum calories and fat.
No Ballet Barre or Dance Experience Is Required
That’s right, you don’t need a ballet barre to do Barre Blend. You can use the back of a strong and secure chair, your couch, a counter, or just about any sturdy household object that’s the right height.
You’ll use light weights and optional Beachbody Resistance Loops to bring the burn while strengthening and toning all over.
And there’s no complicated choreography. Elise has chosen the perfect combination of graceful and effective moves.
Because she’s a master teacher with impeccable form and cueing, she can help you get the lean, strong body you want — plus the confidence to go with it — without worrying about being left behind or left out.
Elise will encourage you to express yourself as you move freely and have FUN!
Who Is Barre Blend for?
Barre Blend is designed for everyone, of all ages and fitness levels. If you’ve never done a barre workout before, or if you’re just starting out, you can follow the modifier who does a slightly easier version of each move.
If you’re already a seasoned barre veteran or fitness enthusiast, you can follow the intensifier who makes the moves more challenging, and you can choose heavier weights and Beachbody Resistance Loops to really embrace the burn.
Elise sums it up this way: “Barre Blend is a low-impact program with high-impact results. It’s not only effective, but it’s safe to do every day. It strengthens and tones the body while helping to prevent injuries and improve stability, mobility, and flexibility.”
“And it’s one of the most energetic and satisfying workouts you could ever do!”
Barre Blend is WAY more than just a workout.
“I hear people say that barre is only for flexible people. Or that it won’t really change your body,” Elise says.
“These misconceptions prevent people from benefiting from this kind of program.”
She adds, “In creating Barre Blend I have seen definition and streamlining in my own body that I forgot was possible! This program will take you to the next level. It will challenge you physically, mentally, and emotionally. And I’m here to help you realize your full potential and live your best life.”
“You will burn. You will sweat. You will smile. So get ready to find your bliss in the burn!”
