A huge trend trend in the fitness industry, already a favourite with Hollywood celebs and with millions of devotees in America, the UK, and Australia, The Body Workshop was the first to bring bootybarre to Johannesburg.
bootybarre is a high energy, calorie-burning fusion of ballet, yoga, Pilates and cardio. It tones and lifts the booty, lengthens and tones the legs and arms, and works the core muscles. Elongate, stretch, and strengthen without adding bulk – and have an exhilarating workout at the same time.
bootybarre classes incorporate small weights, bands, balls and even sliders to strengthen, tone and add fun and variety to your workout.
bootybarre was developed by fitness expert Tracey Mallet and is being taught all over the USA, and as far afield as Turkey and Japan.
bbarreless is a fusion fitness class that is based on the fundamentals of Pilates fused with dance and Yoga. It is the sister brand to bootybarre but is done in the centre of the room and has no barre.
Moves are more free and flowing and your balance and core stability is challenged throughout this class.
Express classes are a little shorter than the normal bootybarre class. They are generally 45mins but tend to move a little quicker than your average class.
So if you are pressed for time and are still looking for the benefits of a full class, this is the one to try!
Bounce classes are barre classes performed on mini-trampolines (rebounders) to add a new dimension to your usual class. It adds instability and targets those glutes even more.
It even has the added bonus of lymphatic drainage, so it tones the outside of the body and cleans the inside! Win- win! (See the health benefits of rebounding on our rebounding page.)
Our Cardio barre classes just ramp it up. It may be bootybarre or bbarreless, but with high cardio and great music, so you tone and torch calories at the same time. You do need to be a little fitter for this class.
Sculpt classes incorporate the use of resistance bands to add a new challenge to your bootybarre class. It is recommended that you attend a few normal bootybarre classes before sculpt to have a better understanding of the form and basics.
PLEASE NOTE: The frequency and times of classes vary due to interest and demand and can change slightly from month to month.
