BarBall Tone is a full-length barre workout using a playground ball for the entire class. The ball will add extra resistance, increase instability to challenge the muscles and help target specific muscle groups on a deeper level.
A new mid-month video is here at BBF! Another full-length barre class is up on the site and ready for you to push play!
BarBall Tone uses one of my favorite pieces of equipment. A playground ball! We use the ball for the entire class to help add extra resistance, increase instability and target specific muscle groups. You’ll be surprised by just how much deeper you will feel your muscles by adding in such a simple piece of equipment.
If you don’t have a ball, you can get one in the BBF shop by clicking here.
You can also use something squishy such as a couch pillow or other small pillow or a stuffed animal in place of a playground ball.
You will also need a light set of weights for this workout (I used two pounds), something sturdy to hold onto to act as your ballet barre and a mat.
This class starts with a low-impact cardio warm-up using the playground ball to help increase your heart rate, boost your metabolism and begin burning calories. We then move to the upper body using our weights and the ball for an amazing toning section. We then head to the barre without our weights but keeping our ball to focus on the the legs, specifically the thighs, glutes and hamstrings. Finally we head to the mat with our ball for intense core work!
I hope you enjoy this class as much as I enjoyed making it!! 🙂
Excellent workout as always. It's challenging, fun and easily one of my favorite workouts!
Fantastic class! Great technique pointers. Always new exercises to challenge oneself!
I am excited to take classes with Brittany in person this summer! I have followed Brittany online for some time. I particularly like the Barre and Pilates workout videos. Her workout techniques reflect current thinking and best practices. She supports all levels of fitness. Definitely worth a try!
Brittany is the BEST. She is inspirational, motivational and innovative. No two classes are ever the same. I'm sad when the summer classes end, but I'm looking forward to checking out her online classes this fall and winter.
My wife and I decided to give Balance Barre Fitness a try and we were not disappointed. We thought the classes would be pretty easy but were surprised at how rigorous they were. The class was great for working on our coordination and core strength. I don't get to many ...
