Now on Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays
5:30pm - 6:30pm
In addition to the Tuesday and Thursday lineup of "Pilates in the Park" Yoga and Pilates classes that they offered last year in Farragut Square Park, this year the folks at Golden Triangle are also offering a free Barre class, now on Mondays, at the Plaza at 2100 M St NW.
Barre combines Pilates, yoga and ballet moves to give you beautiful, sculpted, lean muscles – without the impact and injuries dancers endure. If you have never taken a Barre class before, be prepared for a workout using repetitive movements and muscles you may not even know you had. Barre focuses on isometric strength training (holding your body still while you contract a specific set of muscles) combined with high reps of small range-of-motion movements. Classes often incorporate light handheld weights to bring the burn during all those reps, as well as mats for targeted core work.
Yoga and Pilates classes will be offered on Tuesdays and Thursdays, respectively, in Farragut Park. At all three of the TriFit offerings exercise enthusiasts as well as beginners enjoy exercising together, as well as learning health tips, watching demonstrations, and sampling healthy food from neighborhood restaurants.
