Benefits of Barre Workouts At Home

  • Build Muscle Endurance. Using bodyweight or lighter weights and higher repetitions is great for building muscle endurance, which will assist you in your other workouts (SELF Magazine).
  • Increase Balance, Flexibility, Posture and Range of Motion. Barre is known to strengthen and lengthen your muscles. This increases flexibility and range of motion, which will also carry over into other exercises and is essential to injury prevention.
  • 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.
  • Tone Your Entire Body with a Low Impact Workout. Barre is kind on joints and great cross training for runners. Also a great way to raise your heart rate without jumping.
  • Avoid Fitness Plateaus. Mixing up your fitness routine with barre at home is a great way to avoid fitness and weight loss plateaus.

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

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