45 minutes of FIRE 🔥 — that’s what this intense, total body barre workout is (reference the sweat on my sports bra in the pictures below).

Blending traditional barre exercises with cardio kickboxing moves and strength training exercises. All in one butt-kicking, barre workout.

The addition of cardio boxing intervals raises the heart rate, making this a true cardio barre workout

You have the option to keep it low impact, or add high intensity jumps if your fitness level allows. I’ll offer variations for all fitness levels in the workout video.

This upbeat cardio boxing class brings the energy of the barre studio directly to your home. 

We’ll start with a warm up and then punch our way through lunges, pliè squats, and cardio kickboxing intervals. 

Let’s knock it out!

Cardio Barre Kickboxing Workout

Do I need barre experience or boxing experience for this workout?

No!

This workout is intense, but accessible to beginners looking to try barre or cardio boxing for the first time.

I’ll coach you through each movement pattern, providing modifications for all fitness levels, all you need to do is follow along!

Just like my Power Barre Workout and Barre Blend Workout; you can do this barre workout at home with minimal equipment. Using a chair or countertop for balance support as needed.

What does this barre kickboxing workout target?

It’s a full body workout. Hitting every muscle group in the body with large, multi-functional exercises.

This barre boxing workout specifically targets:

  • Arms and upper body (my shoulders and back were sore the next day)
  • Legs and lower body (my outer glutes or abductors were sore the next day)
  • Abs and core (my obliques were sore the next day)
  • Cardiovascular endurance 
  • Balance and coordination

These are just the physical benefits of this barre kickboxing workout.

Additional benefits include: 

  • High energy and endorphins
  • Coordination and connecting the mind to the muscles

Kickboxing is SO mentally engaging, which makes it great for those days you’re struggling to motivate yourself through a workout.

This cardio kickboxing routine is also really empowering! I love how strong I feel when I’m throwing jabs, cross punches and kicks that make up the punching combinations.
