What is Box & Barre?
Box and Barre is the perfect combination of cardio and muscular endurance work! You can feel fierce like a fighter and graceful like a ballerina all while burning a ton of calories and working your body head to toe!
“Lauren's Box & Barre was a perfect blend of the fierce-ness of cardio kickboxing and the grace of barre! I absolutely loved the challenge on a cardiovascular level with the kickboxing portion and then the seamless transition into the barre segments focusing more on muscular endurance. I would definitely recommend this to anyone trying to mix up their fitness regiment or looking to add a twist to their usual barre training! Instructors that teach barre would also find this beneficial to bring a new element into their classes! 10/10!”

Is this program appropriate for beginners or advanced participants?
This program was designed with all fitness levels in mind. Both kickboxing and barre are easily modified to make all fitness levels feel successful. In the lecture portion of the workshop we will discuss modification and progressions.
What equipment do we need?
No equipment is required for the kickboxing section of the class. The barre section will demonstrate exercises with light dumbbells, a barre, bender ball, gliding discs, and lopped tubing but you don’t HAVE to have any of these. Water bottles can be substituted for weights, a chair for the barre, couch pillow for bender ball, towel for gliding discs, and all exercises shown with looped tubing are plenty fun without it (but you can grab them on Amazon for very inexpensive)!
Is this a full certification?
No, this workshop is designed to be continuing education for already certified barre instructors. We will primarily focus on how to teach and breakdown the kickboxing choreography and which barre segments to choose. If you are looking for a full barre certification, we highly recommend Barre Above.
