Step 1: Learn About Barre
If you are new to barre, it's essential to familiarize yourself with this unique fitness discipline. Barre workouts are inspired by ballet, incorporating elements of dance, Pilates, and strength training. At Sheridan Movement Studios, our highly trained instructors will guide you through a series of small, isometric movements designed to target and tone specific muscle groups.
Step 2: Choose Suitable Attire
When attending your first barre class, it's important to wear comfortable workout gear that allows for a wide range of motion. Opt for form-fitting clothing that won't obstruct your movements. Avoid baggy or loose-fitting attire as it may impede your form. Additionally, remember to bring a pair of grippy socks to enhance stability during the class.
Step 3: Arrive Prepared
Prior to your first barre class, make sure to hydrate and have a light snack to fuel your body. Arrive at Sheridan Movement Studios at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time to fill out any necessary paperwork and get acquainted with the studio layout. This will help you feel more at ease and allow you to meet your instructor and fellow classmates.
Step 4: Focus on Proper Form
During your barre class, paying attention to proper form is crucial. The smaller, controlled movements in barre require proper alignment to maximize effectiveness and prevent injuries. Listen carefully to your instructor's cues and follow their guidance. Engage your core, maintain good posture, and avoid any excessive strain on your joints. Remember, barre is not about how high you lift your leg but rather how you engage the muscles.
Step 5: Embrace the Challenge
As you begin your barre journey, it's important to approach each class with enthusiasm and a willingness to challenge yourself. Don't be discouraged if certain exercises feel difficult at first. With time and consistent practice, you will build strength, improve flexibility, and see progress in your overall fitness level. Embrace the burn, focus on your goals, and enjoy the sense of accomplishment that comes from completing each class.
