The 5-Day Sculpt & Tone Barre Challenge is designed for busy women who want to strengthen and tone their bodies, feel confident and increase energy levels, without working out for hours on end, feeling overwhelmed and beating themselves up for struggling to achieve the results they deserve.
We are not evolved to exercise. Fact. Right now you may:
- Find exercise a source of anxiety and confusion
- Know exercise is vital for your health but struggle to exercise enough, safely or enjoyably
- Feel discomfort, guilt or shame over your lack of exercise
If this sounds like you, you need to join the 5 Day Sculpt & Tone Barre Challenge to get results without overwhelm.
During this challenge you can expect to:
- learn how to listen to your body and workout daily, creating time you didn’t believe you had.
- develop a strong, toned core to help alleviate any niggling back pain, improve your balance, reduce injury and feel comfortable in your clothes.
- increase your strength for improved posture
- form a habit of exercising regularly wherever you are to feel energised, positive, and back in control
- exercise daily to increase your energy, so you can deal with anything life throws at you
- improve your mind and body connection
- receive support and encouragement every step of the way
One of the biggest barriers to staying active is not having a set schedule. We have so many things to juggle and exercise is often put on the back burner. This is why we need a plan.
During the challenge you will complete the following 5 x 15 minute ballet-inspired workouts:
Day #1 – Finding your lower abdominals
Day #2 – Mini ballet barre workout
Day #3 – Full body workout on the mat
Day #4 – Barre legs workout
Day #5 – Cardio legs
Need some accountability working out at home? We will be holding our brand new Exercise Pods throughout the challenge for you to complete the workout alongside your fellow challengers. You will register for your chosen time, login and follow the workout!

Got any questions?
I’m new to ballet. Will I be able to do this?
Absolutely. You do not need any previous dance/ballet experience and the workouts are suitable for all levels of fitness (provided you are fit and healthy and have your GP’s consent to exercise).
I’m all signed up to the challenge. When does it start?
We start together on Monday 1 February. On sign up you will receive a welcome email with your login details for the challenge and next steps. You will gain access to the portal and Facebook group on Friday 29 January. Your first workout will be released on Monday 1 February and you can complete the workout anytime that day.
Do I have to pay anything else?
No you make one payment today of £5 and that includes everything in the challenge. There are no extra fees for the challenge and you get to keep everything!
I’m really busy and struggle to fit in exercise. Will I be able to keep up?
This challenge can be done any time during your day. It’s just 10-15 minutes a day, so carve out that time for YOU.
Do I need any equipment?
The only thing you will need is a yoga mat for comfort.
I’m pregnant (or recently had a baby). Is this challenge right for me?
It is important to exercise safely (possibly under supervision by an instructor) during pregnancy, especially if you are considering a new type of exercise. Due to the online nature of this challenge, it is not advisable to join while pregnant. You MUST also see your GP BEFORE starting a new activity in the 3 months after childbirth
I’m injured/have a pre-existing condition. Can I join?
If you have an injury, diastasis recti, or any other health condition, you should always speak to your general practitioner before beginning any exercise, fitness or nutrition regime.
Does the meal plan accommodate special dietary requirements?
The recipes in the meal plan are suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
Do I need to be on Facebook to join?
No. The challenge content is available in a separate portal. You do not need to be on Facebook. However, the Facebook Group is an invaluable resource where you will find support from other members and where I do additional training and live Q&As.
See you soon!
P.S. Working out is so much more fun when we do it together. Whilst you will have the opportunity to meet many amazing women inside the Facebook Group for this challenge, why not invite your friends to join in too? Just share a link to this blog post and invite them to join you in finding your ballet muscles!
