I’ve been intrigued by barre since it came to the forefront a few years back as “the new way to tone and sculpt”. The Lotte Berk Method was actually created back in 1959 by a former ballerina (Lotte Bark). In 1972 the first Lotte Bark Method Studio was opened in New York City.
Dancers develop their strength and flexibility using a wall-mounted ballet bar and their own body weight. The Fluidity Bar (below) helps you to achieve a dancer’s body in the comfort of your own home – and it is adjustable to your height and experience.
Background on Fluidity
What sets Fluidity apart from other barre workouts where the barre is mounted on the wall, is that the unit can be adjusted to individual height for ideal body alignment. Being adjustable and portable is ideal for both front & back exercises, since it is not against a wall and is easier to align your spine. In addition, the workout helps strengthen pelvic muscles to help with incontinence (a real issue for many women).
The founder Michelle Austin who trained with Lotte Berk found this method to help with many health issues, as you are helping to self-correct when training in your own body alignment. The beauty benefits are endless…perfect posture, a long & lean appearance, and sculpted abs to name a few. The home unit is portable, easy to travel with , making it easy to take on any road trip or vacation. It folds up and can be easily stored.
Also to help you get the most out of your barre workout, they have many studio classes rolling out around the US, including Los Angeles, New York, North Carolina, Washington DC/ VA area, Chicago, Jacksonville, Gainesville and Miami just to name a few. The studio classes are available now in Gainesville- at Gainesville Health & Fitness Center. In the fall at David Barton Gym in Miami.
