4 Fat-burning Questions with Bella Barre

1. I'm not a dancer. Is this workout right for me?
You don't have to be a dancer to enjoy the benefits of barre classes. While Barre was developed by a ballerina and draws influences from ballet, it is a strength-training class. Additionally, Bella Barre uses small isometric movements to get deep into muscles, so rhythm is not required!

2. I have a wedding this summer. Can you help me look better in my dress?
Yes! Bella Barre classes are designed to show results after as few as 10 sessions. Recently, they had a gal take classes four days per week. She dropped two dress sizes for her daughter's upcoming wedding. Consistency is key and because each class is different, you'll always be targeting a different trouble area.

3. Do I need to cross train in order to see results?
While Bella Barre clients enjoy many other types of fitness, you do not need to go anywhere else. They offer a variety of classes to keep your muscles confused so you don't plateau. You'll love the newest class added to the schedule: Illuminate Yoga! This level two/three class is vigorous, challenging and uplifting. You'll leave feeling brighter and stronger.

4.Do you have any specials?
At Bella Barre, your first class is always free so you can check it out. They also have a scorching summer special: Three months of unlimited classes for only $289. That offer expires June 30, so take advantage soon! Bella Barre 299-7767

What You want to Know about Organic Sweat Shack & Weight Loss
How does sweating help your body burn calories?
Medical studies have shown that bodies can burn approximately 600 calories in a 30-minute infrared sauna session. Here's how. As your external temps rise along with the relaxing, dry heat in your personal sauna at Organic Sweat Shack, your body has to work harder to keep your internal (organ) temps stable. This effort burns a remarkable number of calories. But there's another way that sweating at the Shack helps weight loss: toxin release. Scientific tests have proven that far-infrared saunas like those at Organic Sweat Shack assist your body in releasing toxins like plastics, environmental hormone-disruptors and heavy metals like lead and mercury. Toxins like these have been shown to inhibit weight loss. Once the toxins go, so too does the fat they were stored in.

How can sweating assist in my fitness goals?
Besides calorie burn, your infrared sauna session will improve your recovery time after tough workouts, letting you get back to the mat faster. Because the soothing heat deeply penetrates your tissues, muscles and joints, releasing lactic acid as it encourages tight spots to relax, you'll feel great even after the roughest days at the gym.

Can using the sauna help me look better in a bathing suit?
Yup! Even if you aren't much for the gym, your body will beautify thanks to the healing heat. Cellulite dissipates with use for more than one reason. First, the toxins trapped in the fat-covered areas of your thighs and tush are released, making the skin appear smoother and softer. Second, the infrared loosens the binding tissues that make your rear dimple. Lastly, the skin-tightening results leave the area looking more lovely every time you sweat.
