BARRE BLEND : from softball player to ballerina?

I am so excited to share my feedback from the live workout called Barre Blend that I tested out a couple months ago at our leadership conference and is almost ready to release to the world!

I met and spoke with Barre Blend creator and professional dancer Elise Joan this October in Arizona ! #armgoals

Barre workouts have been one of the hottest fitness trends for years, with devoted fans praising the way they sculpt and tone without lots of impact, while improving posture and flexibility.

The dance-inspired moves are fun yet challenging, and they make you feel just a little more graceful. So what if you could get the best barre workout — taught in real time, just like in a studio — without leaving home?!

Keep in mind, a dancer I am not!

I was raised on a farm riding horses, getting dirty and playing softball… I have no dance experience, am terrible at following choreography and have never attempted anything even mildly ballet inspired lol… but so far I have LOVED IT!!

What Is Barre Blend?

Barre Blend is a new low-impact, high-intensity, and high-energy workout program. It comes from our very own barre expert, professional dancer, and 3 week yoga retreat co-creator Elise Joan.

Elise has created the perfect fusion of ballet barre, Pilates, and cardio interval training, designed to help you burn fat and create a lean, toned physique.

The workouts are 30–40 minutes a day, 5 days a week, for 60 days. Elise leads you through each workout in real time, which makes you feel like you’re in a high-end barre studio with a super-supportive community.

It’s meant to be challenging, but as Elise says, you have to defy your limits if you want to define your body.

To keep you inspired throughout the program, Elise has created Daily Motivation Cards that help you celebrate your achievements and cultivate a positive mindset.

What Kinds of Workouts Are Included in Barre Blend?

Elise takes inspiration from her years as a professional dancer and fitness instructor to design full-body workouts. These workouts include high-rep, small-range movements and isometric holds, as well as compound exercises, targeted core work, and dynamic stretches.

Although each class is a total-body workout, Elise adds a special body-part focus each day for extra-targeted toning.

And to make sure you get the best results possible, Elise adds cardio interval training to each workout to keep your heart rate up and help you burn maximum calories and fat.

No Ballet Barre or Dance Experience Is Required

That’s right, you don’t need a ballet barre to do Barre Blend. You can use the back of a strong and secure chair, your couch, a counter, or just about any sturdy household object that’s the right height.

You’ll use light weights and optional Beachbody Resistance Loops to bring the burn while strengthening and toning all over.

And there’s no complicated choreography. Elise has chosen the perfect combination of graceful and effective moves.

Because she’s a master teacher with impeccable form and cueing, she can help you get the lean, strong body you want —  plus the confidence to go with it — without worrying about being left behind or left out.

Elise will encourage you to express yourself as you move freely and have FUN!

Who Is Barre Blend for?

Barre Blend is designed for everyone, of all ages and fitness levels. If you’ve never done a barre workout before, you can follow the modifier who does a slightly easier version of each move.

“Barre Blend is a low-impact program with high-impact results. It’s not only effective, but it’s safe to do every day. It strengthens and tones the body while helping to prevent injuries and improve stability, mobility, and flexibility.”

She adds, “In creating Barre Blend I have seen definition and streamlining in my own body that I forgot was possible! This program will take you to the next level. It will challenge you physically, mentally, and emotionally. And I’m here to help you realize your full potential and live your best life.”

“You will burn, sweat, and smile. So get ready to find your bliss in the burn!”

Hi and thanks for stopping by!! I'm Lindsay ... boy mom of 2 💙💙, wife for 12 years, lover of animals, sports and a hot mess girl boss just trying to enjoy life one day at a time 💜🇨🇦 I aspire to be organized -- I have grand plans on this that are mainly stuck on my Pinterest boards😂 I'm a retired realtor, certified fitness and nutrition expert and on my own journey to a happier, healthier, simplified life 💕 A couple of years ago I was 5 years into the hustle and bustle of a demanding real estate career. I was tired, carrying around an extra 50lbs (mostly in my midsection) and didn't even have the energy to play with my little boys -- when I started cropping myself out of vacation photos I knew enough was enough 🚫 Bad food choices were my thing : I celebrated with it. I comforted myself with it. I was in and out of drive thrus and missing dinners with my family because I was on the road and suddenly each season I was going up a clothing size 😔 Enter home fitness ✅ My husband works shift, I worked crazy hours and had small kids and I couldn't (and didn't want to) go to a gym or group classes -- home workouts gave me the exercise I needed without sacrificing extra time away from my husband and boys. I learned to eat real foods in proper portions 💚 I started to see what my body and my energy levels were SUPPOSED to feel like !! A journey to changing my body completely had begun. Inches lost, dress sizes down, clearer skin, control over my cravings ... food has become fuel, exercise has become something my body now craves. My anxiety levels dropped massively. My moods levelled out. My patience and energy levels with my family picked up! I've been blessed to help SO MANY women in the past 3.5 years achieve this for themselves as well - confidence, empowerment, a fire inside them is reignited as I've helped them take back the power of their own health 🙌🏻💖 Thank you for reading this far -- sharing this journey, this new found passion... it makes my eyes light up when I talk about it (and sometimes I can't stop 😂) My time, my accountability groups, and guidance are always 100% free -- so reach out and let's get you back on a path to self confidence, positivity, passion and energy-- you deserve to feel like the best version of YOU
