How Often Should I Come To A Barre Class? - Aleenta BARRE

You can experience optimum results by attending class 3 or 4 times per week consistently. When we first opened we provided a money back guarantee – come to barre 10 times in 3 weeks and if you don’t see a change to your body we will give you your money back. We have had hundreds of people come through our doors and never once handed back a dollar :)

Enjoy a mix of Barre Classes

Incorporating a mix of classes throughout your week, you’ll begin seeing increased fitness, better flexibility, increased toning and mental clarity. If you’re incorporating a cardio-based class into your week, there is no need for you to do any other exercise, as your Barre classes have you covered. 

Each of our classes incorporate a mix of toning, strength building, endurance and flexibility, so you’re getting everything you need. Combined with the incidental exercise you’ll inevitably do each day you can consider yourself covered.

Rest

Too much strenuous exercise can elevate your levels of the stress hormone cortisol, which can accelerate the rate that your cells (and your skin) age. While the temptation may be to schedule in 6 sessions per week, your body will simply stop achieving results after a period of time unless you have days to rest. So schedule in those rest days! 

The Proof

Australia’s Physical Activity and Sedentary Behaviour Guidelines recommend adults undertake 2.5 to 5 hours of moderate intensity physical activity, 1.25 or 2.5 hours of vigorous intensity physical activity or an equivalent mix of both moderate and vigorous activities each week. They also recommend muscle strengthening activities exactly what you experience at Aleenta BARRE at least two days a week.

What's your weekly schedule look like?

We often choose not to move our bodies because that wonderful feeling of motivation hasn’t washed over us. Clearly it’s a sign that we’re not supposed to move and fire up those sleepy muscles, right?
