what is a barre workout?
Benefits of Barre
Hello, FIT Fam! It’s Emmy again and I’m here to talk all things Barre. Perhaps this is the first time you’re learning about Barre or maybe Barre is your choice of workout, either way one thing is for sure, this ballet-inspired cardio & sculpting format is here to stay! Barre offers you so many amazing benefits while helping you crush your personal fitness goals.
The intention of Barre is to utilize small movements with multiple repetitions in order to stress your muscles without overworking them. Here at FIT we offer Barre 6 days a week (check our schedule on the mindbody app). It’s a full body workout in just 45 minutes. Each class is going to challenge your movement in order to push you without fatiguing you completely.
TOP BARRE BENEFITS:
In order to reap the full benefits a workout at the Barre, we recommend coming in 3-6 times a week with a mix of FIT’s Cardio classes.
Can’t wait to see you in the studio soon!
Delicious Healthy Snacks!
Hello FIT FAM!
My name is Emma, a FIT ambassador in Tucson. I wanted to share a few of my favorite recipes and healthy eats I have been loving lately.
Staying home lately has us all cooking a bit more than some of us would like. For some of you I am sure cooking from home is a great way to relax and activity. Let's just say, to not get bored. Whether you are a master chef or just want something quick and easy here are a few of my top simple healthy recipes I make weekly.
POST WORKOUT SMOOTHIE
For all of us Tucsonians the summer heat is arriving WAY too early. This has me craving smoothies on the daily. Here is my go to post workout shake or smoothie bowl:
This is typically my morning shake sometimes for some extra fat. If I don’t have a side of toast with butter or avocado I will add 1 Tbsp of coconut oil to my shake for those MCTs. If you make it a smoothie bowl I recommend topping with cereal and peanut or almond butter. ENJOY!
SUMMERTIME SPRING ROLLS
These are one of my warm weather favorites as a light meal or snack!
Marinate the tofu and grill until fully cooked (about 10 is minutes). Then thinly slice the mango cucumber and bell peppers. After slicing the tofu thin, dip soy paper wraps in water for about 3 seconds and set on a plate. Fill the wrap with the desired amount of ingredients (a little goes a long way) and repeat the process until you use everything up.
Dip in peanut sauce and enjoy!
LEMON ROSEMARY SALMON
This is a super simple salmon dish that my family makes regularly. Nothing is really measured here so it’s just a guideline for a super yummy dish
Layout the salmon in a baking pan and coat in olive oil or olive oil spray ( I like regular) then thinly slice lemons and place all around the fish, then repeat with the rosemary .Bake until cooked. Add salt and pepper if you'd like as well. Serve with roasted potatoes and asparagus or rice and broccoli. Voila!
