Carolyn leads a fun, strenuous barre class. Class begins with a warm up focusing on postural strength and alignment, followed by a series of upper body exercises using light weights. The ballet barre is used to sculpt the lower body, lift the seat, lengthening and toning the muscles. Then it is down to the mat for core work and a relaxing and invigorating final stretch.
30 minutes of High Intensity Interval Training is all you need to get superior fitness results. We push really hard for short bursts of time working our cardiovascular system, then we recover and repeat. If you like Tabata, Insanity, P90X then you will love this class. Followed by 20 minutes of pure core on the mat working all the muscles of the core in all planes and all directions for your strongest core yet.
Most popular home exercise DVD ever made – now you can do P90X in the studio for extra motivation and even better results. The P90X LIVE workouts offer a rich variety of cardio, resistance training, strength training, plyometrics and ab work. P90X constantly switches things up to help class members bust through plateaus. There are modifications so people at any level can partake.
