I don't know if you've heard the buzz around the health and fitness circuits but guess what is back my friends? 

Ballet. In a big way. The isometric postures and exercises work deep into the muscles and are revolutionising how we think and showcasing one of the best ways to sculpt and define our sexy little tookuses. I had heard along the grapevine, and had seen a few testimonials and reviews for a program called Barre3, a class that gives credit to the principles of ballet barre, pilates and yoga. Um hello, perfect combo of classes and this alone was enough to make me prick my ears up and scramble to learn more!

What is Barre3 - A range of classes that aim to have you develop the strength of an athlete with the long, lean, graceful lines of a ballet dancer. They offer a Barre3 class that focuses on dynamic movements (think uptempo dancing) and another option (for us less coordinated folks no doubt) called Barre3 Fundamentals that slows it down a fraction and works through teaching each new posture thoroughly.
What can I expect? Barre3 claims to provide an overall improvement in the strength and length of your muscles with many participants reporting they lost cms off their waists, thighs, upper arms and hips! The online classes (see below) offer 10, 30, 40 and 60min variations of the classes and, because they've been streamed online, can be done anywhere! They encourage you to do approximately 3 x 60min sessions per week to gain the best results.
Where can I find a class? Unfortunately Barre3 hasn't yet made it's way to the sunny shores of Australia just yet. If you're overseas, you can look up your nearest studio in the official directory here. They also offer online classes for all you guys and girls who want to try this revolutionary class in the comfort and privacy (cue Emily falling over on her tippy toes...) of your own home! Membership for infinite access to classes starts at $15/month and can be accessed here


Australia has developed its own fusion ballet/pilates company and are popping out trained instructors faster than McDonalds stores pop up in Texas! I came across Xtend Barre Australia during my search for local providers and these guys are casting their net far and wide to ensure that all Aussies can have access to this incredible class. They have trained instructors providing classes in Western Australia, New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, South Australia.

I am definitely intrigued to learn more and am making in my mission to track down some Ballet targeted workout DVDs to trial over the coming weeks. Remember that variety is the spice of life. Don't let your workout become stale or boring! Throw in a few new workouts every now and again and listen to your body scream for more!
