Barre Workout

Modeled after the intense workouts performed by world-class ballerinas, barre training promotes the development of lean muscles, as well as improving flexibility and balance. Using a chair and some dumbbells, you’ll gain a whole new appreciation for ballet dancers. What’s more, it’ll assist in increasing range of motion in stubborn areas, like the hips, which means sounder and seamless movement all along the kinetic chain. $160 for the Pure Barre Collector’s Set (equipment plus six DVDs), Purebarre.com
