    Research shows that interval training -- short intervals at high intensity -- produces better weight loss, larger increases in muscle mass, better spikes in metabolism and better overall improvements in cardiovascular conditioning than just spending 40 minutes on the treadmill at an easy pace.

    So what should you do? Work intervals into your workouts a few times a week. For example, if you usually walk for 30 minutes each day, trying alternating two minutes at a fast pace with two minutes of rest on a few days. If you use the elliptical at the gym, try alternating a few minutes at a high pace and a few minutes of rest.

    Here's one way to do interval training on a treadmill: After a short warm-up, start off at a moderate walk for about 5-10 minutes, then kick it up into a moderate-to-fast jog for about 1-2 minutes, drop it back down to a walk for two minutes, then kick it back up to a jog again for one minute and then finish it with a walk for two minutes.

    Interval training alternates between high- and low-intensity work. The high-intensity phase is very intense and can be performed for only a short time, followed by a low-intensity phase that allows you to cool down before the next high-intensity phase begins.

    Tabata training might be the ultimate no-excuses high-intensity interval training (HIIT) program. Developed by Japanese researcher and training coach Izumi Tabata, this workout involves cycling 20 seconds of intense  exercise with 10 seconds of rest, and repeating that eight times for a total of four minutes. Here's a sample Tabata workout (repeat eight times):
    • Squat jump: 20 seconds
    • Rest: 10 seconds
    • Burpee: 20 seconds
    • Rest: 10 seconds
    • Jump lunge: 20 seconds
    • Rest: 10 seconds
    • Push-up: 20 seconds
    • Rest: 10 seconds

    If you don’t have a barre any similar height solid structure like a counter top, shelf or wall can be used to help improve balance and stabilization while performing classic ballet moves like the plié. Simply hold on to the structure and perform the graceful fluid movements you would at a studio.

    The cork provides a good cushioned shock absorbing platform to work from that is also more hygienic than carpet as well as friendlier on the environment because cork is an easily renewable material much like bamboo. Cork is hygienic and doesn’t store microbes or germs from your skin or feet like carpet does so it provides a cleaner surface that’s soft and low impact.

    Yes. Barre3 classes focus on improving strength in the core, arms, chest and leg muscles which are necessary for all parts of a tennis game from the serve, to returning a serve and hitting a volley as well as improving balance and coordination.

    No, you do not need a dance background to take a barre class. Barre was designed originally for dancers and takes some of the basic dance positions based on their ability to improve muscular tone and strength. Barre does not have any movements that require a background in ballet or any other form of dance to perform effectively and can be done by beginners with no dance background.

    You will experience a buzz, but it won’t be from downing intoxicating empty calories. There are no mojitos or long island ice teas on the menu at this bar. Pure Barre is among boutique fitness studios that are creating lean sculpted bodies.

    Clients do not have to be able to do a plié to participate in this challenging workout. Initially, the small burst of movements and slow stretches may be deceptive; however, the words “tiny bend, tiny stretch” will conjure new images in your mind after taking a class at a Pure Barre studio.

    How does the bar method differ from a regular gym workout? If you want to elongate the muscles, lift up the derriere, flatten those abs, and firm up the hips and thighs, Pure Barre is the place. As your muscles tremble from fatigue, remember shaking means change. This innovative combination of yoga, Pilates, and ballet will definitely help in the quest to pinch less than an inch! 

    How does it work? Each studio integrates unique features into the technique, but there are some universal elements. The workout is set to music. It combines stretching, weights, and fat-burning calisthenics. Start with a warm-up which includes push-ups and free weights. That’s just to wake up the muscles! Onto an intense thigh and seat workout at the ballet bar. The higher on the toes the leaner the thighs! Next, floor exercises that cause the abs to quiver as the instructor says, “a little back a little up.” Attending sessions three or more times a week does the body good! Watch that pure barre ledge lift, the area where the thigh and seat meet!

    The real secret to a successful physical makeover is marrying your exercise and nutrition efforts. Your diet and workout regimen must be in sync. While you may observe some improvement by modifying either, it is not until they are in harmony that you will achieve optimal results.

    If you want a tight physique, get ready to see your body transform with the Pure Barre workout. How do you drag and squeeze your way to flat abs? The answer is on tap at a Pure Barre Studio.

    Happy hour at Pure Barre does more than enhance your physical appearance. It boosts energy, elevates your mood, manages health, improves sleep, and wows the sex life. Highballing it there, yet? 

    Looking for a new place to get fit? Stop by Pure Barre. The studio offers the best skinny cocktail around. It serves an hour of moves to fiercely reshape and tone the body! The proof is in the sweat.
