“Moderation is key.” “Don’t go overboard.” These sayings are guiding principles for many of the decisions we make in life, especially when it comes to health.
Luckily, there’s one thing you can’t get enough of: barre class.
Barre is derived from ballet-inspired movements with elements of Pilates and strength training, and it’s typically done in a studio.
Andrea Rogers created Xtend Barre, a dynamic mix of cardio, Pilates, and ballet fundamentals that can be done at home.
“If you want to see results, the most important factor is consistency,” Rogers says. “While results will vary, I think you should be doing Xtend Barre classes at least 5 times a week.”
And the results she is referring to aren’t only weight loss.
“Barre can also help you to increase your endurance, get stronger, gain flexibility, and improve your mind-body connection,” she says.
The Xtend Barre classes are designed for everyone, with modifications and advancements, so you can grow with it and have the flexibility for how you’re feeling that day.
Is It OK To Do Barre Every Day?
“Yes! Absolutely!” Rogers says. Especially the 30-minute Xtend Barre classes. These classes give you the option to work out and move every day — and then get on with your day.
However, you should have at least one rest day a week to give your body the opportunity to recover. Or you should have at least one workout a week that is based on mobility and recovery.
There’s a common misconception that to see physical results, you have to spend half your life at the gym doing rep after rep after rep. That’s just not true.
One of the benefits of Xtend Barre is that each class is just 30 minutes.
“Xtend Barre is about the mind-body connection,” says Andrea. “The hyperfocus on muscle engagement eliminates the need for mindless repetition of movement. It’s all about the quality of the rep, not the quantity.”
Xtend Barre is a healthy way to add movement to your routine every day of the week.
How Long Does it Take to See Results From Barre Classes?
While everyone has a slightly different experience with Xtend Barre, you could start seeing a difference within just a few classes.
“The changes you’ll see from a consistent practice with Xtend Barre are so much more than weight loss,” says Andrea. “Within just a short amount of time, you’ll be feeling a difference in your body. You might feel stronger, more energetic, less stiff.”
While you might only feel changes at first, Xtend Barre will also help you to change your body. After a few weeks of consistent classes, you can begin to see a difference in your body.
Is Barre Good for Losing Weight?
“We’ve had a tremendous amount of success with our Xtend Barre crew,” says Rogers. “Many people are losing weight. Some see immediate results, while others take a few months to see a weight-loss change.”
How Can I Stay Motivated to Take Barre Classes?
It can be simple to talk about and mentally commit to taking an Xtend Barre class every day. But sometimes life just gets in the way.
One of the reasons Xtend Barre is such a great program is that the workouts can be done anytime, anywhere. This program is designed to fit your schedule.
It’s also got a built-in support mechanism to help you get back into the groove of taking classes when life gets in the way — BODgroups.
With BODgroups, not only will you get the support of a Coach, but you’ll also gain entry to their private online community.
There you’ll connect with other people, who are also committed to helping themselves — and each other — live healthier lives.
