Men love to build muscle and run - do manly things. "Manly things" is not the typical phrase you would hear in a barre studio......well you would in ours.
The fitness regime of a man can focus primarily round weights and cardio, very open their minds to the benefits offered from other forms of fitness. This is not a rant, this is an observation that men like weights and football not dance and yoga.
Whilst I continue my campaign to get my boyfriend into the studio to take a yoga or barre class our very own boxing instructor Simon Collins rushed past me, quick as a whippet into Rosie's Barre class.
"I wanted a workout that challenges me and improves my flexibility, barre offered me this and so much more. It improved my posture, targeted every muscle group, it was low impact and fun!"
Given the way he looked afterwards, I would also say it was quite sweaty! He needed to sit down for 15mins after.
Barre - classes 7am, lunchtime and evening - see our schedule here.
