Raise the Barre on Your Workout

by Jessica Mehalic


Some of the coolest classes are borrowing from ballet.

If you covet the long, lean bod of a prima ballerina, you’re in luck. Ballet-inspired classes are all the rage right now – no tutu required.

… If you want a slightly more rigorous sweat session, CARDIO BARREĀ®’s pulse-pounding poses will sculpt you into killer shape. Former Beverly Hills, 90210 babes Jennie Garth and Tiffani Thiessen are both hooked on the high-energy workout. Get more details at, or look for other ballet variations at you local gym.
