Whether you’re looking for a low impact, beginner barre workout at home or a more athletic, cardio barre class, I’ve got you covered.

I’ve rounded up the TOP 10 Barre Workouts At Home on the blog!

There’s no dance, ballet or barre experience required. No barre studios, or fancy equipment needed. Several of these barre workouts are bodyweight only, but some include a light set of dumbbells for an extra challenge.

Why You Should Do Barre Workouts At Home

  1. Mix Up Your Fitness Routine. In my strength workouts you’ll hear me say go for the heavy dumbbells, but barre is the opposite. We use higher repetitions and lighter dumbbells or bodyweight only. Using lighter weights is great for building muscle endurance, which will assist you in your other workouts (SELF Magazine). Adding barre workouts to your fitness routine also helps you avoid fitness plateaus.
  2. Increase Balance, Flexibility and Range of Motion. Barre is known to strengthen AND LENGTHEN your muscles; increasing flexibility and range of motion which will also carry over into other exercises. And essential to injury prevention.
  3. Target The Abs, Core and Pelvic Floor. Barre workouts require constant core engagement. I always suggest barre workouts as a great pregnancy workout, as well as postpartum workout.

Added bonus, barre workouts are accessible to ALL fitness levels. You can easily modify and adapt exercises if you’re a beginner by using bodyweight only or decreasing range of motion.

On the other hand, you can ‘scale up’ or advanced barre exercises by going into relevè (on your toes) or increasing the range of motion.
