Holiday Barre Blast Workout

Hi friends! How’s the day going? Hope you’re having a lovely morning! I got in a super early Orangetheory class, and while waking up was a bit of a challenge (especially after a fun girls’ night last night!), it was awesome to get in a morning workout. I have a new Orangetheory-inspired treadmill workout that I’ll be sharing tomorrow, too, based on this morning’s treadmill adventures.

In the meantime, here’s a barre workout I filmed yesterday. It’s a Barre Blast workout -my little combo of HIIT and barre- and emphasizes muscular endurance (through high reps) and an awesome sweat + calorie burn from the cardio blasts.

Barre Blast Workout Video

Here’s the video if you’d like to give it a try! It’s perfect for holiday travel; all you need is your own body weight.


And a pinnable/printable version of this barre workout:

This workout is a little longer than my usual videos (17 minutes); let me know if you’d like me to continue posting longer videos or if you prefer the shorter 5-10 minute videos. 

Hope you love it <3

  7. I can’t wait to try this workout after work today, it looks awesome!

  8. Love it, thanks! Your last barre +Hiit left my booty sore for days!

  9. Just did this! I was having a hard time finding the motivation to workout, but I saw this and knew it would be perfect! I actually loved the length. Thanks Gina!

  10. This looks like a great workout! Definitely going to try this later. I personally like the longer workout posts! Thanks again 🙂

  11. I love your barre workouts!

  12. I, too, love your barre workouts, especially the ones with videos. The length was great, and this was a great little post-run challenge. 🙂

  13. Looks like a great workout! Gotta love one leg bridges!

  14. I was actually going to say 30 minutes would be best…haha! I have those Fabletics pants. They just sent them to me and I wore them this morning. Fabletics is the best!

  15. I’ve really been enjoying barre classes lately, so I’ll definitely be doing this workout in the next day or two.

  16. I’m going to be hitting up my second Orangetheory class next week while in Florida! Can’t wait.

  17. LOVE the longer videos!! Keep ’em up! And since the holidays usually involve traveling to various places, I totally appreciate the bodyweight exercises!

  19. I love your Fabletics gear! I may have to purchase some gifts/gifts to myself from them!

  20. I love the combo of HIIT and barre– two of my favorites! And your outfit is SO cute!

    Always, Anita

  21. This looks like a great workout!!

  22. I definitely like these slightly longer workouts! Sometimes I only have 20-25 minutes to work out, so having 1 workout video that fills that time, rather than piecemealing together several videos, is great. And, I can always add on a 5-minute ab burner if I have extra time. 🙂

  23. I like the longer videos (that way I can run through them just once but not feel as guilty) and can’t wait to check this one out!

    That’s so funny you mention screen shotting workouts; I have a whole folder in my phone’s pictures full of workouts. It’s so convenient!

  24. This was *exactly* what I needed today. Thank you!

  25. Great workout! I just squeezed this in during my lunch break – the exercise solution for a rainy day!

  26. sounds like a super workout!

  27. I did this workout today, and it was great! Followed up with a few more barre-inspired arm burners. I preferred this over actual barre ha! Also, this blog has totally inspired me to get into kale salads. I made a Thai version topped with TJ’s gyoza today that rocked my world. Thanks!

  28. Totally love the longer video!!!

  29. Just finished this video and oh man…am I gonna feel it tomorrow. I LOVED it. I definitely prefer the longer videos as well.

  30. Loved this workout! More barre videos would be great!

  31. Just did the workout and loved the longer workout!

  32. I really enjoyed the longer video! I’m new to barre so one time through was enough for me, but I am inspired to work more barre style workouts into my routine!

  33. Just did the work out! Thank you! Love the longer videos!

  34. Love the sheer leggings from Fabletics!

  35. I looooove your videos–so quiet I can do them in my dorm room 🙂 thank you! And the longer the better haha

  36. You look great in your outfit from Fabletics! I’d really appreciate it if you do a review on their clothes at some point. I’m really drawn to their unique designs and price, but I ALWAYS try on clothes before I buy. The mail-order only aspect is a little scary. Happy Holidays 🙂

  37. Such a great workout for the holidays! Thanks for posting workouts we can all do at home 🙂

  38. Love the longer videos!! Thank you for posting! I am going to try this tomorrow.

  39. This video was great!! I really liked the longer video; however, I like the shorter ones as well.

  40. That was my first barre workout ever and what a great intro!! Loved the burn without feeling totally wiped out. Thanks Gina!

  41. Loved the video today! Enjoy your longer ones. I repeat your shape up videos a lot. Enjoy short ab ones to add onto end of workout. Happy holidays!

  42. Perfect for being stranded inside on a snowy day in England (no run!!) loved the longer length, I’m burning!! Thanks, awesome as always!

  43. Loving the longer video – surprised I haven’t come across this one yet. Thanks for including it in the December work out calendar 🙂

  44. Great workout, juste did it once (i’m short on Time) but m’y legs are Burning

  45. Tried again as part of the December workout- really great barre burner workout!!

  46. My legs were burning after this one! First barre workout for me of any type. Loved it, thanks much Gina!
