The 15 Minute Barre Workout You Can Do at Home

Dancing as a workout is nothing new—whether you’re doing Zumba or just jamming out toBeyoncé’s latest, it’s a fun way to break a sweat. And barre workouts truly take dance-inspired exercise to the next level. From a stronger core to better posture to leaner legs, the benefits are numerous. And as more and more barre studios open across the country, more and more people flock to them—proving this is one fitness trend that’s not going away anytime soon. The downside: Classes can be pricey—we’re talking anywhere from $20 to $30 per sweat session. The solution: This free yet seriously effective workout you can do at home from Sadie Lincoln, fitness expert and founder of Barre3. The moves are exactly what you’d do in class, and all you need is a chair (a kitchen counter works too)—no tutus or tap shoes in sight. Go through the warm-up once, then complete the workout, which takes about 15 minutes. Starting small with your motion (part A) for each exercise will target the muscles and push them to fatigue, while layering on a large range of motion (part B) will elevate your heart rate. The routine is killer on its own, but you can also do it twice in a row or at multiple times of the day to boost the afterburn effect. Want more?
