Summer Strength Barre Challenge

All you need to know about the BRAND NEW 5-Day Summer Strength Barre Challenge.

The 5-Day Summer Strength Barre Challenge is designed for busy women who have zero time to waste, who want to sculpt strong, confident summer bodies through daily ballet-inspired workouts, an easy-to-follow meal plan, educational training & community support.

With summer just around the corner, it’s common to start thinking about toning up and getting ready to show a little more skin…

It’s hard not to when we’re pulling out clothes from last year, seeing photos of friends on holiday and being bombarded with media telling us it’s time to get “bikini ready”.

The truth is most of us aren’t aiming to look like supermodels:

  • We just want to feel good in our own skin
  • We want to feel healthy in body & mind
  • We want to feel strong
  • We want to enjoy summer activities without being paralysed by insecurity

If this sounds like you, you need to join the 5 Day Summer Strength Barre Challenge to get results without overwhelm.

Over the 5 days you will learn how to strengthen your body and mind by building the habit of regular ballet-inspired workouts and understanding what works for YOU and how YOU can see the best results in your life.

We’ll focus on how to understand what your body needs now to look and feel your best this summer (renewed confidence, radiant glow, new-found energy).

By the end of this challenge you will understand how to motivate yourself to workout consistently to look and feel strong, feminine, healthy and confident.

The Workouts

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 – Strong abs
  • Day #2 – Strong legs
  • Day #3 – Strong arms
  • Day #4 – Strong butt
  • Day #5 – Strong body
