Have you recently planned to join a Barre Class? Excited about the whole prospect?
Well, it is great that you have decided to incorporate this fun and exciting workout in your daily routine but to ensure that you get the most out of this, you would need to be prepared and research a lot.
Don’t worry, we have provided you the top 4 things which you would need to know before starting your first Barre class:
You need to register early
Barre classes tend to open registration online 3 weeks before to make sure that you register on time and choose the date, time and spot according to your convenience.
This will help you by providing you a lot of options and flexibility in date, timing, and location and you would have enough time to prepare and warm up for your first class.
You dress has to be perfect
The next important thing to keep in mind is to make sure that you dress comfortably and appropriately for the class.
Don’t wear tight clothing as they would hinder your movements and don’t wear clothes which are too loose as it would end up exposing your body.
Make sure you wear clothes which are comfortable and fit without restricting your movements.
Ask for guidance from the studio regulars
If you feel strange in your first class or aren’t sure how to keep up with the class, then you can always seek help from a regular client.
There will be many people who love going to Barre classes and so would be frequent in their barre workouts and can really help you in getting into the rhythm of it.
So, don’t hesitate and follow a regular and ask them for help. I am sure they would be more than happy to pass on their wisdom to a newbie.
You need to choose appropriate equipment
A Barre class involves using lights weights, mats, exercise balls, etc. and it is important to choose the right one for you.
If you choose an uncomfortable mat, you would be fidgeting through the whole workout session and if you choose a heavyweight equipment, then you might end up hurting yourself.
So, make sure that you choose the right equipment for yourself which is both easy and comfortable to use. Don’t go for overly complicated or heavier equipment in your first class itself. Gradually make your way towards it.
You will be completely exhausted
One of the most important things to keep in mind before going to your first barre class is that be prepared to be completely exhausted. A barre class is a lot of fun but it is grueling too and it would incorporate the use of your heels to your head which would slowly tire you out.
By the end of this class, you would be bone tired and all your muscles will be sore and aching, so be prepared for it. You can help your body getting used to it by taking it slow or doing yoga and other stretching activities to keep your muscles free and relaxed.
