Fitness Friday LeBarre

NAZARETH, Pa. -

This Fitness Friday features one of the hottest trends in fitness classes: Le Barre

It's a ballet-based group class at Sweat Like A Girl in Nazareth, Northampton County,  and other locations around the Lehigh Valley. The letters in Barre actually stand for Balance, Agility, Resistance, Recovery, and Eloquence.

During a LeBarre class you'll use an "equalizer" or small, portable bar to represent a ballet bar. The equalizer can be used in many different ways, you can hold onto it for stability while combining squats, lunges, and the ballet move called a plie, or you can lift it to get in a good arm workout, or balance on it for a core workout.

WFMZ's Melanie Falcon tried it out, watch the video to learn more!
