The Barre Class That Really, Really Burns

Quick PSA: We didn't say "burn" in this headline for nothin'. Get ready to feel sore in muscles you didn't even know you had (that's the beauty of a good workout, right?). If you think barre looks too easy, you're about to have your mind blown and your muscles toned—all without leaving your living room or dropping major cash on a class.

"Expect to work at high intensity, burn loads of calories, tone your muscles, and work deep in your core," says Paola Di Lanzo, founder of Paola's BodyBarre in London. In her 30-minute barre routine, you'll do a combination of dynamic Pilates moves, ballet-inspired barre exercises, and bursts of cardio to sculpt and tone from head to toe, raising your heart rate and burning major calories. Grab a yoga mat and a light set of dumbbells (optional) and join Di Lanzo in the Grokker Premium video below. Get ready to feel the BodyBarre burn!
