It doesn’t have to be aerobics or legs, bums and tums… The ever-expanding options at gyms and leisure centres challenge your body (and brain) in exciting new ways

IF YOU LIKE Pilates, yoga or strength training TRY BARRE

What is it? A body-transforming workout inspired by ballet and performed at a barre. These classes have boomed in popularity in recent years as people realise the body benefits. You’ll use a combination of your own bodyweight, lightweight props and high repetitions to work all major muscle groups. Who is it good for? Anyone who wants a challenging class to improve muscle tone and create lasting body change. What are the benefits? Barre classes focus particularly on working the arms, thighs, bottom and core. It’s a wonderful weight-bearing exercise, important for maintaining bone density, flexibility, balance and co-ordination as we age. Fans point to improved posture, sculpted muscles and leaner limbs. There are different class options, from signature barre to HIIT, express or more yoga-inspired classes. Whatever type you choose, you’ll work hard and get a sweat on.
