Total body barre burner

Hi guys! How’s the day going so far? I’m excited to finally get this barre burner posted after my crazy YouTube tech issues. This video took me about 20 times to upload so please give a little thumbs up if you give it a whirl and enjoy it πŸ™‚ This would be a great component to legs day, after cardio, or any time when you want a quick workout.

I haven’t found a good space yet to film videos to share, but I figured in the meantime, I’d film them exactly where many of you would be doing them: in the living room. This way, it really feels like we’re working out together. Since I’ve really fallen in love with barre again -and am thankful that I can enjoy it as part of my weekly routine!- I thought I’d share a total body barre-based workout today. This one is 15 minutes and split up into 3 sets: warmup, legs/booty, and core.Β

Make sure to warm up before giving it a whirl, and also check with a doc before making any fitness changes. Those with knee, hip, and joint considerations may want to skip this one (lots of small movements and flexion at the knee), but as always, honor your body. It will tell you what it needs and what it can do: it’s just up to us to listen.

Have fun! Let me know if you give it a try and if there are any video workouts you’d like me to post in the coming weeks. Hard to believe that Summer Shape Up is almost here, too!Β 

See ya soon. <3

    Thanks for sharing this! I’ve been wanting to try barre for a while but all the barre studios near me are so expensive!

    • Fitnessista on May 12, 2014 at 6:27 pm

      let me know how you like it πŸ™‚ and yes, barre can be $$$

  2. Jackie on May 12, 2014 at 6:01 pm

    Can’t wait to try this!

    • Fitnessista on May 12, 2014 at 6:27 pm

      let me know if you do!

  3. Domi @ Eat, Pray, Lift on May 12, 2014 at 6:21 pm

    Can’t wait to watch/try when I get home tonight! Also, LOVE those leggings! You are killin’ it in the wardrobe department lately. πŸ˜‰

    • Fitnessista on May 12, 2014 at 6:27 pm

      thank you!!

    Girl–you’re looking so hawwt! Love those leggings. This looks great. Makes me totally want to go to a barre class now. I should go–there’s like a gazillion studios here in Chi-town. But I always feel like I need more cardio. When you do barre 3 classes do you add in your own cardio before or after or just do cardio on a different day? Just curious!

    • Fitnessista on May 12, 2014 at 6:53 pm

      thank you! i usually do cardio on a different day. if i take a barre3 class, that’s my workout for the day

  5. Sara @ LovingOnTheRun on May 12, 2014 at 6:54 pm

  6. Hannah @ CleanEatingVeggieGirl on May 12, 2014 at 7:06 pm

    Yay, I am excited to try this! I always love a good barre workout πŸ™‚

  7. Bonnie on May 12, 2014 at 7:16 pm

    Can’t wait to try it later! Would love to see a calorie-blasting elliptical workout πŸ™‚

  8. Megan @ The Skinny-Life on May 12, 2014 at 7:39 pm

    I’m so excited to try this! I started adding barre to my routine again last week.

  9. Jennifer on May 12, 2014 at 8:18 pm

      let me know how it goes! xoxo

  14. Karyn on May 12, 2014 at 9:29 pm

    Love your necklace…… Can you share the details? I’ve yet to try a barre workout – I’ll have to give this one a try!

    • Fitnessista on May 13, 2014 at 1:04 am

      it’s from stitch fix! it’s the only thing i kept from my last box πŸ™‚

  15. Becca on May 12, 2014 at 9:34 pm

    I just did this and your Sage Dance stability ball workout and booty burner. Oh, how it all burned! πŸ™‚ I would love to see more stability ball videos.

    Also this is a weird suggestion, but– I was having some trouble seeing the position of your feet and legs during the barre part because your tights were sort of blending in with that patterned carpet. I liked your tights, but maybe a solid, bright color would be easier to see? Just a thought for next time, since I know you’re not in the studio or anything.

    • Fitnessista on May 13, 2014 at 1:04 am

      awesome!! so happy you liked them πŸ™‚
      and that’s great feedback. i’ll remember that for next time!

  16. Runner Girl Eats on May 13, 2014 at 6:21 am

    Thanks for sharing! I loveeee barre but have to space out my classes since they are so pricey so this is the perfect in between routine. Love the leggings too!

  17. Diane on May 13, 2014 at 7:37 am

    Thanks so much!! I wanted to sleep in a little this morning so I did this at home instead of going to the gym, and this was perfect. Loved it!!! πŸ™‚

  18. Stephanie @ Whole Health Dork on May 13, 2014 at 8:02 am

    Thanks so much for sharing! I love barre for a low-impact, but effective workout. I’ll let you know when I give it a try!

  19. Kelsey on May 13, 2014 at 9:16 am

    Loved the video! Sweating hard core! I paired this with the strength tabatta. I also loved you added extra info about working out during different times of the day as well as the oxygen part. Knowing the science behind your body and work out is always a must πŸ™‚

  20. Danielle on May 14, 2014 at 11:49 am

    Loved the barre burner! After doing this one, I got curious and found another one of your barre burners on YouTube and did that as well. Thanks so much for posting these motivating, free, informative, challenging videos!!!

    • Fitnessista on May 14, 2014 at 6:00 pm

      so happy you enjoy them!! xoxo

  21. Courtney on May 14, 2014 at 7:58 pm

    I just did this new workout while my 8 month old napped! I didn’t want to work out but I am so glad I did this now. My buns will be sore tommorow, thanks so much!

  22. Hayley on May 15, 2014 at 3:50 pm

    Is it wrong to have done this whilst baking chocolate peanut muffins which I can smell whilst I burn!

    • Fitnessista on May 15, 2014 at 6:00 pm

      that is so right haha πŸ™‚

      • Hayley on May 16, 2014 at 9:35 am

        They were so good too! Think you might have liked them Gina! They were over on StoneSoup. Think they were peanut chocolate brownies but I did them in a muffin tin…..there is only one left (not all me I promise!).

  23. on July 9, 2014 at 8:41 pm

    I’m 28 weeks pregnant, and loved this video! I used filled coffee canteens as my weights. πŸ˜‰
    Thank you!

  24. Jessica on July 17, 2014 at 9:54 pm

    Ouch! Loved this. Your workout quickies have been a lifesaver now that I’m back to work and have a 4 month old baby at home. Thank you for being such a valuable resource for busy ladies who want to stay fit!

  25. Claude on July 17, 2014 at 10:01 pm

    My best friend and I just ran in the park and did this–we loved it! Gina, your tights are so cute. Where are they from?

  26. Tara | Treble in the Kitchen on October 16, 2014 at 6:29 am

    Was looking for something quick this morning and this was the perfect thing! Will do it again when I get home tonight πŸ™‚ Thanks, Gina!

  27. Sarah Sturgis on April 12, 2015 at 8:57 am

    Loved this! Perfect addition to my quick morning run.
