Get ready to Raise the Barre for long, lean muscles with this barre teaser workout + DIY barre!

OH gosh, guys what? There are about me and THIRTEEN other ladies getting ready to take on Beachbody’s newest BOD library program; Barre Blend! We are going to do so with my Raise the Barre 8 week challenge with coaching from ME! 

Starting Monday, me and my ladies become official Barre Babes. Using just 1-3 lbs hand weights (or heck NO WEIGHTS), we are going to create long and lean muscles, a tight core and lifted booty! Sounds amazing, right? It gets better! These workouts can be done in your home, in under 40 minutes just 5 days a week. Plus, this program is shot in REAL time- the cast did the entire program, and EVERY workout was recorded! Which means every time you push play for class, it’s like taking a live class. 

To get us geared up, I’m sharing a little barre teaser workout + diy barre instructions. That’s right, I’m extra like guacamole and made a barre in a few hours with pvc pipe, glue, and spray paint!

And for the DIY barre! It’s really easy and not too expensive. I made my barre a couple weekends ago- I even used the saw blade! After the hubs made a quick -social distance safe- run to Lowe’s (we needed some gardening stuff and softer salt anyway!) I made my barre in just a few hours! I followed these simple instructions, applied a coat of spray coat primer and then two coats of spray paint color. I opted for a dark metal look to match the rest of home gym. It would be soo pretty in rose gold though!
