A Ballet Barre Is The Fun, New Way To Exercise!

Posted on: September 17th, 2015 by

Using A Ballet Barre To Work Out Is New And Exciting!When most people, myself included, think of Ballet they tend to think pink tutus and Nutcracker recitals.  Barre-based fitness programs are popping up all over the country and I have the pleasure of talking to so many people about exactly why it’s becoming so popular and have really changed my view on ballet. To the point where I wish  I would have started as a child. It’s time we get off our exercise mat and start doing something new and fun for exercise – Ballet!

Starting Ballet or dance at a young age can really help with coordination development. That doesn’t necessarily seem all the important until you really stop to think what we need to be coordinated for… like getting behind the wheel of your first car at 16 years old. And for all those boys that think ballet is too “girlie”, how much coordination goes into football or ice hockey? I read a story about a NHL goalie, Ray Emery , that was real close to ending his career because of some hip issue.  As a last resort he took up Ballet and less than a year later his career was back on track and better than ever.  That just goes to show you it’s never too late. A simple 4′ or 6’ ballet barre in your bedroom, gym or garage can be the start to a much healthier, easier life.

Ballet not only helps with flexibility and coordination; It helps with other activities like your endurance while running. You’d be surprised how much cardio you are actually doing – and Cardio helps with heart strengthening, breathing and even will power.
