get fit with britt // top of thighs

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 tones the top of your thighs. Many Pure Barre regulars have a love/hate relationship with this sequence. Although it looks unassuming, the tiny movements cause a really intense burn and shake in the thighs. Keep your seat hovering just an inch or two at all times, and really try not to rest down on your heels! Make sure not to hinge forward at the waist, but instead keep your upper body nice and straight. Keeping your hips tucked under will help with your posture here, so use it for your own benefit! Do 10 reps of each movement, and repeat the sequence three times for a totally shake-worthy exercise!
