Each barre class is designed to be a full-body, muscle endurance workout (as I've definitely experienced). Typically, they're broken into different sections that focus on major muscle groups including the arms, legs, glutes, and core.
"The muscles in each group are fatigued via small targeted movements, high numbers of repetitions, and light weight or resistance," says DiGiorgio. Think pulsing in a squat to target the glutes and quads, cranking out as many triceps kickbacks as possible with three-pound weights, or moving through a lively plank sequence.
Don't underestimate the light weights, though—I guarantee barre class will leave your muscles burning.
Boxing is a great cardio session, made fun and engaging.
