Bisou Bridal Fitness: Barre Fitness Yaletwon

We are pretty lucky to be on the West Coast of Canada. Our winters are mild and spring comes early with blue skies and cherry blossoms. If it is still a little crisp outside to lace up your running shoes, and head outside try the amazing Barre Fitness in Yaletown! We asked Co-owner Ella Jotie to find out the benefits of a Barre workout.


Bisou: What is Barre, and what are the benefits?

Ella: Barre Fitness will get you a dancer’s body… without the dance! It is an efficient workout that combines the best elements for ballet, pilates, sports conditioning and stretching and is guaranteed to tighten, tone and transform your body.  Our ‘Barre Brides’ have have benefited tremendously from our program that focuses on being healthy and happy on you wedding day!

Bisou: Tips to staying motivated to reach ones fitness goals.Ella: Set realistic, healthy and simple goals. Choose goals that are doable and that ultimately will make you happy. Don’t obsess over the numbers (such as weight or measurements) instead envision how you want to feel on your wedding day. Use food journals and exercise logs to track your progress and celebrate your accomplishments along the way. Finally, give yourself time, change doesn’t happen overnight, it comes with consistency over time.


Bisou: Do you have any specific exercises for arms, and gluts?
