For the past two years, Carolina Barre & Core has been my second home.
I feel like there’s this urban legend that “barre is not hard”. I want to blow that junk out of the water.
Barre is usually described as:
“Develops long, lean muscles.”
“Helps you get a ballerina’s body.”
“Improves flexibility, balance and posture.”
“Tightens and tones.”
This is all true however it makes it sound so wimpy and it is not wimpy.
I describe it as:
“Hard as hell.”
“Brings you to your knees.”
“Makes you want to achieve a full split again more than anything in life.”
“Full body workout and then some – like parts of your body you didn’t know you had.”
“It works – best results of any workout I’ve ever done, period.”
Carolina Barre & Core is a TOUGH workout. It is also a progression so it’s great for all levels and ages. I was pitiful in my first class (and am still a hair above pitiful in some positions) but I stuck with it and no one judged me and I felt supported in every class by every trainer. Their tagline is: NO JUDGMENT, JUST RESULTS. And it is the essence of Carolina Barre & Core and shows in everything they do!
If you are competitive with yourself, then you will doggedly pursue the positions until you can actually do them all correctly. And, even when you can do them all correctly, it will still HURT and it will still be HARD and you will feel so accomplished and GRATEFUL that your body can do these things in the name of strength.
I’m really high on Carolina Barre & Core, can you tell? I bring my friends, I tell everyone I know, I just love it! If your interest is piqued a tiny bit, then give them a try. You say “why?” and I say “why not!” See y’all at the barre!
