18 December 2022If you’ve always wondered about it and still have yet to try, check out our top 5 reasons YOU should be doing Barrecore….
1. Barrecore is for YOU! No matter who you are – what age, gender, fitness level – this workout will work for YOU.
Using your own body weight and isometric exercises, our Barrecore Method quickly sculpts your body, making you stronger, leaner, and more flexible. Despite being tough, our method is low impact, meaning no jumping or other unnecessary stress on your joints. Even if you’re recovering from an injury or are pre or post-natal, Barrecore provides an incredible list of benefits and it’s easy to start as a beginner.
2. The Barrecore Method offers an incredible list of physical benefits in addition to creating longer, leaner, stronger muscles.The Barrecore method works all elements of fitness: mobility, flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and develops posture and core. We work all major muscle groups as well as the smaller, more intrinsic muscles, to help stabilise joints and create a better performing body, improving everyday movement and increasing quality of life. We believe fitness should never be focussed on one element and so design each one of our classes to make sure you get a well-rounded workout every time. Barrecore also compliments other exercise disciplines you may already be enjoying. This is why we refer to Barrecore as ‘intelligent exercise”
Additional physical benefits include:
Practicing Barrecore increases bone density
Due to the weight-bearing exercises included in classes, bones become denser and stronger, helping to combat osteoporosis.
Practicing Barrecore maintains/ increases muscle mass
Isometric contractions are one of the most effective ways of increasing muscular strength. In fact, one of our favourite statistics is “using isometric exercise for 6 minutes would be the equivalent muscle work of 30 to 35 minutes of gym work on commercial weightlifting.” (Journal of Applied Research 2006)
We work 360 degrees around the body to correct any muscular imbalances, and focus not just on toning muscles, but how to use them correctly to improve overall posture. Practicing Barrecore also helps to prevent injury and improves spine health.
Practicing Barrecore is great for posture
Practicing Barrecore provides a healthy dose of stretching
We stretch after each section of class helping to maintain muscle length and reduce stiffness after a workout. It’s harder to build strength in tight muscles, so building ample stretching into workouts is key for all fitness goals.
Practicing Barrecore can improve cognitive health
Particularly for older adults – improving motor function, how well you make and control movements. It also improves balance.
3. Possibly even more important, Barrecore offers an incredible list of mental benefits.
The isometric movements we use in Barrecore are so small that they bring a new level of awareness to the body that you wouldn't get in a regular strength workout. Muscles that you may not even know you have are activated and used in Barrecore classes, strengthening your mind-body connection as you work out.
Barrecore, like all exercise, releases chemicals called endorphins boosting energy and lifting your mood. The endorphins then interact with the receptors in your brain that reduce your perception of pain and trigger a positive feeling in the body, similar to that of morphine. This is why we often refer to the euphoric feeling you feel after a workout as a ‘runner's high.’
Barrecore has been built on the inclusivity of its community and provides a safe space for all to work towards personal fitness goals.
4. Barrecore offers multiple class formats and levels to deliver different workout experiences.
The diversity of the Barrecore offering keeps things interesting and provides for flexibility in our ever-changing busy lives.
BarreFORM - Focussed on refining positioning and getting the most out of every move, this challenging format is suitable for all levels but is especially great if you’re new to barre, recovering from an injury, or are pregnant.
BarreSIGNATURE - The OG class format using a combination of bodyweight resistance high repetitions to exhaust all your major muscle groups.
BarreSCULPT - adds the use of resistance bands to the BarreSIGNATURE offering, restricting your range of movement and adding intensity to the classic exercises by allowing you to feel isometric connections more easily and generating greater muscle burnout.
BarreSWEAT - builds on the BarreSIGNATURE offering by delivering continuous movement and low-impact cardio exercises increasing cardiovascular fitness, coordination, and detoxification.
BarreRESTORE - A combination of breathing techniques, joint mobilisation, and lengthening stretches to help you achieve transformative results even faster from our regular classes. Recommended once weekly.
BarreADVANCED - is like BarreSIGNATURE but entails higher repetitions, less recovery time between sets, and advanced modifications.
5. Barrecore works quickly and provides noticeable results you can feel and see.
Our unique Barrecore Method is recognised as one of the fastest, safest, and most effective body transformation exercises, and has been publicly endorsed by some of the world's biggest celebrities and influencers including Pippa Middleton, Claudia Schiffer, Rita Ora, and Poppy Delevingne.
Longer, leaner muscles are one of the most noticeable changes. Barrecore lengthens your muscle to give you that much-desired dancer’s aesthetic. A lot of our clients report the first thing they notice is a perkier bum - they say it's more lifted and firmer as well as a flatter stomach. Barrecore helps tuck everything in and tones you in all those hard-to-reach places.
Whether you’re going for a transformation or just want to feel good in your mind and body, Barrecore can cover all the bases delivering noticeable change in 4 weeks. (optimum recommended times/week – 4/week)
