I’ve often had a fleeting thought to take a Barre class, mostly out of curiosity in how much it would be like a ballet class from my youth. Parts of me miss it! However, I teach so much at the gym around bunches of people that I also take real joy from working out at home when I can just focus on me and then crash on the couch after.🤣 Also – if I’m honest – I was secretly scared that old insecurities about my body would come back. As much as I enjoyed my ballet years, that time of my life was a long season of negative talk taking root in my core identity… The joy for it was overshadowed in my heart!
So, when our company announced it was adding a Barre program to our fitness catalog I was like, OK Lord… Grow me!
As a Coach, I’ve had access to the first 10 workouts to test the program, & I’ve been sharing short clips of me doing them on my page – have you seen them?
These workouts are so humbling, y’all. Sore in muscles that I haven’t felt for a while or ever!! 🔥 LOL! You will feel the burn from your booty, to your core, and through your legs in almost every move; while keeping it low to no impact – and still, heart rate up! This is such an amazing program; with a few PiYo & Pilates & ballet feels…. I am reminded of my joy in these types of movements😘 but I can say definitively that you don’t need any Barre experience at all, (I promise)!
So I’m not gonna go without mentioning this…. We’ve opened it early & you can now do barre with me! 👏🤩 I have a fun VIP “Raise the Barre” group of women forming now if you want in.
The first 3 weeks of this 60 day program are already in your library as soon as you sign up & you’ll get ongoing support from me for the entire year, too. 😉
This 6 week program has 40 full-body workouts that include high-rep, small-range movements and isometric holds, as well as compound, full-range exercises, targeted core work, and dynamic stretches. And every 30- to 40-minute workout includes light weight training and cardio intervals to keep your heart rate up so you can burn maximum calories and fat.
Barre Blend requires no dance or ballet experiences and is perfect for all fitness levels. Start by following the modifier or kick it up a notch with weights and bands. You won’t believe the amazing workout you get from a “low impact” workout.
And this program also focuses on strengthening your mind! This program comes with “I AM” daily motivation cards to help you cultivate a positive mindset every day.
Here is what is included:
-2 prep workouts to introduce you to the program
-40 unique workouts – there are 4 phases with 5 workouts in each. Elise ups the intensity every 2 weeks!
-5 Bonus workouts- these 10 minute workouts up the intensity and target specific body parts
-3 Recovery Workouts
– I AM Daily Motivation Cards- Elise pulls one of these cards before each workout and bases the workout on the card. You can use them yourself to stay motivated through the program- and even use them in your morning routine!

Light dumbbells are required- 1 – 5 pounds should be good for most people. These are very high rep exercises so low weight is perfect!
Loops and barre socks are optional!
What support will I have?
I will be hosting a test group to motivate and support all the women who join me! We’ll create a little community and cheer each other on. It’s just amazing and so effective!
Since this is a test group, it will be the first time anyone has done these workouts! I cannot wait to experience this program together and see everyone’s results!
