What is Suspend Barre?

Suspend Barre is a combination of two of the most effective body weight workouts there are - barre fitness and TRX suspension training. First lets define the two workouts:

TRX: Born in the Navy SEALs, TRX suspension training develops strength, balance, flexibility and core stability simultaneously. It requires the use of the TRX Suspension Trainer, a portable training tool that leverages gravity and the user’s body weight, to complete exercises.

Barre: Barre classes use a combination of postures inspired by ballet and other disciplines like yoga and Pilates. The barre is used as a prop to balance while doing exercises that focus on isometric strength training, combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements.

TRX is the perfect complement to barre because similar to barre, you use body weight to build strength through balance. Much like barre, in suspension training all moves can be modified. You can use different angles, vectors and body positions to make each TRX exercise easier or harder. Another similarity is the need for good form. It will take those new to the workout a few classes to feel comfortable with the exercises but, paying attention to cues and positioning will get you up to speed in no time.

If you are an avid barre-goer, Suspend Barre will challenge your control and take your fitness routine to the next level. The class combines barre moves at the barre, barre-inspired moves using the TRX suspension trainer for stability, and classic TRX exercises.
