If you’ve done my barre workouts you know they’re a little more athletic and ‘upbeat’ than traditional barre classes. But if I’m going to sweat, I want to sweat.

One of my biggest pet peeves is taking a barre class and feeling like I need to go for a run afterwards to actually break a sweat.

And you guys must agree because this 30-Minute Barre Fitness Workout Video is one of my most popular home workout videos on Youtube. 

I love a high-energy, upbeat barre class that leaves you shaky and sweaty. And that’s exactly what this barre blend workout does.

What is Barre Blend?

This 30-minute barre blend workout combine traditional barre exercises like pulsing pliès, lunges and chair squats with higher intensity exercises. Similar to cardio barre classes.

I love to combine the strengthening and lengthening movements barre is known for with dynamic, full body exercises and cardio bursts for a workout that truly does it all!

That’s what I mean by ‘Barre Blend’! This workout takes the best of barre workouts, and combines it with heart-pumping HIIT cardio interval training in one 30-Minute Workout.

What are Barre Workouts Good For?

Barre is my go-to workout for ALL seasons of life.

I think a common misconception about barre is that it’s going to be easier than a strength training or HIIT workout. But I’m here to tell you — nothing fatigues my muscles to the point of shaking like barre workouts do.

Barre workouts tend to be a low-impact workout (or easily modified to be low impact). Which means barre workouts are great for: 

  • Fitness beginners
  • Prenatal and pregnancy workouts
  • Postnatal and postpartum workouts
  • Quiet workouts if you have downstairs neighbors or sleeping kids 

Barre is also a great form of cross training for runners and higher impact athletes. Barre exercises tend to target the smaller, stabilizing muscles which is great for injury prevention.

Benefits of Barre Workouts

You don’t need to be a professional dancer or ballerina to get the benefits of a ballet barre workout.

Home barre workouts can: 

  • Strengthen and tone muscles (especially for women who are worried about strength training increasing bulk).
  • Building long, lean muscles specifically in the legs, thighs and lower body. 
  • Increase cardiovascular endurance. 
  • Burn calories and boost metabolism. 
  • Improve balance and posture.
