Frequently Asked Questions About KX Barre
How does KX Barre differ to KX Pilates?
Whilst your KX Pilates exercises re-align and strengthen the body using added resistance from your reformers, KX Barre uses the body’s own weight to isolate, strengthen and sculpt all major muscle groups. Small props are used in the class to enhance the workout and exercises in this class take place at the ballet barre and on mats.
What do I need to know for my first class?
Please arrive 10 minutes early to your first class so you can familiarise yourself with the studio, fill out a registration form and meet your trainer. If you’re late to your first class you might not be able to train. We recommend gym tights/leggings or shorts and either a t-shirt or singlet top. Although most clients prefer to train in bare feet, socks are most welcome. Apart from that you are in good hands! We provide complimentary towels and drinking water and have changing facilities on site.
Will KX Barre help me lose weight?
Yes, the class combines cardio based exercises that require intense bursts of energy producing high caloric burn and deep isometric stretches giving you firmer muscle tone.
How often should I attend KX Barre classes in order to see and feel a difference?
3 times a week is a great goal to aim for. The classes will also be a great addition to your weekly pilates classes. Because exercise is such a personal thing, how often you train will depend on your own fitness level, how your body adapts to the training and how well your body can recover. It also depends on what your fitness goals are and what you do outside of KX classes. We recommend starting with no more than two to three classes per week and then increasing from there.
Can I still do KX Barre classes if I have an injury?
It will all depend on your injury and your road to recovery. It’s best to speak to one of our trainers before participating in a class to make sure you’re not putting yourself at risk of further damage. In some cases, you may need to get a medical certificate from your GP before you can attend or start with a one-on-one class to assess if classes will be appropriate in the future. KX Barre is low impact meaning that there is little pressure on your joints. You may find that this class is more suited to you than other exercise classes because of this.
Do I need to have dance experience to do the class?
Not at all, although some exercises in the class are based on ballet barre training you most certainly do not have to be a prima ballerina to participate! This class is designed for men and women of all abilities helping you to achieve a dancer like physique without having to put on a tutu. Your balance, coordination and flexibility will also improve massively by doing these classes so don’t worry if this is an issue.
