    Is it normal to get stressed when trying a new exercise class?

    One of my favorite memories is teaching a private class to editors and fitness trendsetters in New York City at the Baryshnikov Art Center. This class was packed with very influential and fit-minded people who were all experiencing barre3 for the first time together. In the middle of class I asked, “How’s everyone doing...Read More

    What are some alternatives to walking for exercise?

    One of the best things about walking as a form of exercise is that it is so easy and convenient for most people. It doesn’t require a gym or even any props and can be done almost anywhere. At barre3 we like to develop our online and app workouts with the same convenience in mind. Many only require a w...Read More

    Will yoga keep me injury free?

    While yoga itself cannot prevent all injuries, it can help to improve your posture and help you move with more grace and awareness throughout your day. You may notice that by adding yoga into your fitness routine, you are able to perform other activities with more ease. One of the great things about yoga...Read More

    What are simple balancing exercises that I can practice from day to day?

    Balance can change from day to day and even worsen without regular practice.  At barre3 we use a ballet barre as support while we work to improve our balance.  You do not need a ballet barre, though, to get the same benefits we do in our studios. Simple exercises such as standing on one leg or up on your toes...Read More

    How can I get in shape without getting a gym membership?

    There are many forms of exercise that can be done outside a gym.  From the very basics of walking, jogging or biking outdoors to the more creative at-home or destination workouts.  You can pick up handheld weights or resistance bands fairly cheap and try an at-home strengthening routine or a little dancing in your living...Read More

    What should I do if I don't have enough time for exercise?

    I am a huge fan of 10 minutes at a time. Studies are showing that short workouts spread throughout day are just as effective as a full 30 minute or longer workout done all at once.  When cramped for time, try doing a few seated core exercises while at your desk.  Take a quick walk during lunch or see...Read More
