4 reasons you’ll love Pilates barre classes

Pilates barre classes fuse together elements of Pilates and ballet for a fun and energetic workout. Utilising the barre (handrail) and other equipment such as weights, bands, balls and gliders, classes offer a complete body workout. No previous dance or Pilates experience is necessary as movements are simple and easy to pick up. If you’re yet to experience Pilates barre classes for yourself, here are five reasons you’ll end up falling so in love with it, you’ll want to add it into your weekly routine.

1.Great for flexibility


Flexibility is an important aspect of ballet and as such you’ll find it’s a key principle in barre too. Pilates barre classes are about building strength and flexibility for long, lean muscles. You’ll be guided through a number of whole body stretches in amongst the exercises you do. Flexibility means less tension in the body, greater mobility and injury prevention.

2.Pilates barre classes are just fun


The perfect combination of dance movements and Pilates exercises, barre classes are just so much fun! You don’t need good coordination or fitness, but classes will help you with both. We put on good tunes and work our way to strong, fitter bodies! What’s not to love?

3.It’s a low impact exercise


Barre classes are great for injury rehabilitation and prevention because they’re a low impact exercise. This doesn’t mean you’re not working your muscles hard! Barre is all about working key muscle groups to fatigue. It’s just that you do this through everyday movements like squats and lunges and using your body weight as resistance rather than anything too high impact. We’ll work all the muscles around your shoulders, hips, knees, spine and ankles which will help build up strength after an injury or prevent one from happening in the first place.

4.Plié your way to a strong booty, arms, legs and core quickly


Because of the way barre exhausts and stretches every muscle group, it quickly increases your muscle density which means you get results fast. Think strong, toned, lean muscles that increase your functional movement and help boost your energy and metabolism!

If you’re looking for a fun, low impact yet results-driven exercise, you just can’t go past barre classes. Come and try a class and see for yourself.

 

 

Capri Paddle Sponsorship

I’m paying it forward and I really need some support from our Grounded community. Together we can really make a difference!  On the 24th October, 2 friends and I will set out to paddle for 24 hours around the river and canals of Isle of Capri to help raise money for our charity Men of Business (MOB). Our 24hr paddle will finish with our Charity Luncheon at Edge Water on the 25th October.

We are aiming to raise $100,000 to help build a school in Southport for helping young boys at risk. The school will support up to 90 boys every year and with your support, we can help them evolve into Great Men. Men of Business have been running programs over the last 9 years and to date have helped over 1,000 disengaged teenage boys.

The Men of Business (MOB) is a life changing mentoring program that runs for year 11 & 12 boys that have struggled with the regular education system. This program is an intensive mentoring and personal training model designed to empower teenage boys with positive community and male role models learning the value of Trust, Communication, Anger Management, Friends & Family, Respect, Inner Strength & Emotion, Attitude, Goal Setting

So, this is the plan…We have 3 ways to raise money.

Table of 12 -$1800 or $150 a head (only 15 tables available)
