Welcome back to Get Fit with Britt! I'm going to be posting some demos of my fave exercises taught at Pure Barre Williamsburg, with the help of their awesome instructors. Pure Barre is a fast, effective, and most importantly, safe way to change your body, and follows a technique that's high-intensity, but low impact to protect your joints! Thanks to Pure Barre, I have been able to build long, lean (not bulky!) muscles while tapering everything in & lifting it up! For this series, we will pick a particular move, explain the focus area and correct form, then demonstrate it so you can practice at home! That way, if/when you come to the studio yourself, you'll be rocking the moves & way ahead of the game ;) These exercises are also a great way to get fit at home or on-the-go! I find myself regularly using Pure Barre exercises during my hotel room workouts. Additionally, you can get all the outfits I'm wearing at the Pure Barre Williamsburg studio, so definitely go by if you're looking for some fun, new workout gear! Come & join me, get that healthy & strong body you've always wanted- come Get Fit with Britt!
Today's exercise focuses on your butt! I love this one because you get to lay down on your side, so you almost feel relaxed, but the move really ends up burning your tush like crazy! This is a great area to focus on when you want to give some nicely defined shape to your butt. The small, subtle movements really target your outer seat, helping to lift and tone throughout. Be sure to press your forearm down into the ground for added support & to help keep your hips stacked. If you're up for it, you can also add a resistance band around your thighs for an extra challenge!
