"Barrecore is a bit more hardcore than some gentle pirouetting-cum-planking. Think single leg squats, on your tippy toes, while balancing a small squidgy ball between your ankle and glues, and possibly bicep curling a 1lb hand-weight. Your body will shake like you never thought possible as you flow from one move to the other, stretching between sets to ensure long, lean muscles with no bulking. The perfect compliment to more dynamic exercises as it uses the smaller muscle fibres that are often neglected. The results? Think Natalie Portman in Black Swan."
"Barrecore tones your tum, bum and muscles you didn't know existed. Small yet very intense movements that work out the core and the abs will have you gasping on the floor. If you’re willing to put in the hard work, this is easily one of the best fitness classes going at the moment."
"Primarily based around tiny movements repeated until your muscles shake, its effects are quickly noticeable and the increase in your strength over time is impressive."
"Barrecore aficionados including Jourdan Dunn, Poppy Delevingne and Darcey Bussell, to name just a few regular barre-goers who’ve seen speedy results through the intense yet low impact isometric movement that Barrecore is famed for."
"Nothing burns more than the muscle-shuddering series of pulses at the barre in this cardio-meets-ballet-meets-resistance-based workout (squeeze a medicine ball between your thighs while you drop your bottom to the ground over and over, rise onto your toes, maybe take your hands off the barre, grit your teeth, remember to breathe). And nothing gives a shapely lower leg quite like it."
The 'seat exercises' at Barrecore really work their magic. Sometimes, small moves can be SUPER effective. And while the burn is hell at first - after a few classes, you'll be begging for more.
