Body By Barre's Motto: We keep you guessing and you keep your body guessing!
Most of us have had the experience of going to an exercise class and after several months, we look about the same and so does everyone else around us. That's because some instructors do not vary their routine nor do they include enough cardio to get your metabolism churning.
You'll never do the same workout twice at BodyByBarre and that's by design. To avoid fitness plateaus, you have to constantly mix up your routine. Our instructors come from a variety of backgrounds and have certifications in barre, Pilates, and yoga, and we let them do their thing. There's no prescriptive routine and playlist. All of our moves are low-impact, so you won't throw your back and knees out like you will in those boot-camp, post-your-heart-rate-on-the-wall classes.
Teresa's crack-of-dawn classes (6:15a & 7:45a) will turbo charge your metabolism in a highly efficient 45 minutes. Gisela (8:45a Mon & Thurs; 10a Thurs) will exhaust your glutes and challenge your arms and cardiovascular system. Michele ( 8:45 Tues., 10a Wed., and 5:40 Thurs.) is our ab killer. Even our instructors finish her class with a belly ache! We all amp it up with cardio intervals --multiple cycles of 30-60 seconds of heart pumping movements that are shown to be more effective than 30-minutes of running.
Mix it up, try us all, your body will thank you!

Timing May Be Everything
There is some evidence that working out on a completely empty stomach — or, as scientists call this woozy, wee-hours condition, "in a fasted state” — prompts the body to burn more fat and potentially stave off weight gain, compared to exercising at other times.

In a groundbreaking 2010 study, researchers in Belgium persuaded young, healthy men to stuff themselves for six weeks with a diet consisting of 30 percent more calories and 50 percent more fat than the men had been eating. Some of the volunteers remained sedentary while gorging. Others began a strenuous, midmorning exercise routine after they had had breakfast. The third group followed the same workout regimen, but before they had eaten anything.

At the end of the six weeks, the sedentary group predictably was supersized and unhealthy, having gained about six pounds each. They had also developed insulin resistance and larded their muscles with new fat cells. The men who exercised after breakfast had also packed on pounds, about three pounds each, and developed insulin problems. But the men who had exercised first thing in the morning, before eating anything, had gained almost no weight and retained healthy insulin levels. Their bodies were also burning more fat throughout the day than were the other men. Source: New York Times.
