7 At-Home Barre Exercises

Skip the expensive studio class and do these moves in the comfort of your home.

Chances are you’ve heard of barre. With hundreds of studios popping up around the country, it’s a fitness craze that’s likely to stick around. Think classic ballet meets group exercise (minus the tutu and leotard).

A typical class will take you through a series of isometric moves aimed at building lean muscle, increasing flexibility, and improving mind-muscle connection. 

The only downside: price. A typical studio session will run you anywhere from $20-$35. Luckily, you can get all the benefits of barre without the hefty price tag! Even better, no ballet barre is needed; all these moves can be performed with your bodyweight and around your house.
