Mixing Pilates and ballet-barre work, Sculpt Barre classes chisel lean physiques with movements that target muscles rarely used by the body, even during other vigorous workouts. Instructors design workouts around isometrics, high-repetition counts, and muscle failure, focusing particularly on the legs and glutes. Check out the class schedule here.
The original barre workouts began in 1959, when German ballet dancer Lotte Berk injured her back and required rehab. She decided to combine her ballet barre work with her rehab exercises and, thus, one of the most effective workout programs was born.
Sculpt Tulsa's Marlene Martindale, inspired by her lifetime of marathon running, triathlons, and group exercise instruction, has improved upon the original barre method by incorporating her personal training and rehabilitation experience. Sculpt Barre combines traditional barre exercises with Pilates for targeted, small muscular movements. This works muscles that are often neglected by other exercise programs. Martindale's clients can look forward to toned abs, a lifted butt, stronger ankles, and pinkie fingers that can chop through taut floss. Also available are TRX classes, which use gravity and body weight resistance to increase balance, coordination, and flexibility while strengthening the core muscles.
