STRETCH SCULPT ABS: Hit those abs from every angle with this 35 minute Pilates fusion mat workout. Utilizing small focused contractions and sweeping dance inspired movements you will stretch and strengthen your entire core with some bonus shoulder work thrown in! Combine the traditional Pilates C-sit with graceful leg extensions and side planks with oblique crunches to maximize your results in minimal time. Whittle your waist, flatten your lower belly and improve your posture all whilst on the mat! Combine this with one of my upper or lower body workouts for a total body challenge!
STRETCH SCULPT FREESTYLE ARMS: Want long, lean arms with no bulk? This no weights arms workout is for you! Using fast, high repetition freestyle arms exercises you will lengthen and strengthen your arms from every angle. Targeting the smaller muscle fibres you will sculpt lean muscle to give you a streamlined upper body. By engaging the lower body in a hip tucked kneeling position you will reap the added bonus of tightening your hips and glutes. The exercises are designed to elongate and stretch your arms so you walk away feeling lengthened and relaxed.
STRETCH SCULPT LOWER: Get ready to lengthen and sculpt your lower body with this tough barre style workout. Starting with some gentle swings and hip openers, you will quickly move into slow, controlled extension work and then some grueling mat work. You will work your lower body from every angle and you'll definitely know about it the next day! This workout isn't for beginners, but if you stick with it consistently you will change the shape of your lower body to the best it can be!
About the instructor: Hi, I'm Linda - creator of Barlates Body Blitz. I have worked in the diet and fitness industry as an instructor and personal trainer for most of my career and have created close to 550 workout videos to bring my passion for exercise to you! My desire is to help you sculpt a strong, healthy body with a fusion of barre, Pilates, yoga as well as more traditional cardio + toning exercises. So what are you waiting for? Let's go work out together!
What is Barlates Body Blitz: Barlates is a fusion style workout that borrows from pilates, barre, ballet, yoga and more traditional cardio and toning. The idea was to create a workout, which flows seamlessly from one move into the next using the principles of isotension and high repetitions to build long, lean muscles. By using a lighter weight with high repetitions the exercises are designed to target all of those underused smaller muscle groups resulting in a defined, lengthened dancer's physique. This is a real girls workout in the sense that it is fun and feminine, but don't get me wrong it is still super intense with a big burn factor! The workouts are designed to be mixed and matched with an array of 20-30 minute upper body, lower body, abdominal and total body workouts that can be strung together for a longer session or done individually if you are short on time. These workouts will hit all those trouble spots and best of all you don't even need to wear shoes to do them! Get ready to sweat, puff and burn - hopefully you'll love every minute of it!
