Barre Blend

Barre Blend is a low-impact, high-intensity, and high-energy workout program from barre expert, professional dancer, and Yoga Instructor Elise Joan.

Barre Blend helps create a lean, toned physique through a fun fusion of ballet barre, Pilates, and cardio interval training. It incorporates a variety of techniques rooted in dance, focused on high-reps of small-range movements, dynamic exercises, core stabilization and active stretches, all while keeping your heart rate up.

You’ll feel the burn as you sweat, stretch, and strengthen to energize your entire body. Get ready to feel graceful, strong, and gorgeous in just 60 days.

The Workouts

There are 8 weeks of workouts broken into 4 phases and 40 unique workouts. Workouts run from 30 to 40 minutes, and Elise changes up the moves and level of difficulty as you progress through the program.

While every workout is full-body, she gives special focus to one body part each day. These include:

CLASSIC FULL BODY BLEND

BOOTY BLEND

CARDIO BLEND 

CORE BLEND

LEAN LEGS BLEND

When you want some extra targeted toning, add these 10-minute enhancements to any workout:

ENHANCE THE CORE 

ENHANCE YOUR CARDIO 

ENHANCE THE UPPER BODY 

ENHANCE THE LOWER BODY 

ENHANCE THE BOOTY 

And on rest days, you can add these recovery workouts to release tension and restore mobility:

10-MIN YOGA BLEND 

15-MIN YOGA BLEND ROLL & REPLENISH

The Nutrition

The nutrition plan uses simplified portion controlled nutrition to teach you exactly how much of what foods to eat.

It’s simple nutrition and totally customizable to your goals. You’ll also have the option of a mindful eating nutrition approach.

Shakeology

Acts like salad, tastes like cake! This superfood packed shake has the nutritional equivalent to 7 plates of salad in one glass. I drink it daily as one simple, easy meal I don’t have to think about. It’s helped me so much with my mega sweet tooth and conquering cravings.

The Performance Line

The Performance Line is designed to take your results to the next level. Energize our plant based pre workout provides a natural energy boost before your workout and recover, a whey based protein shake, will provide the proper post workout fuel to help you maximize results and recover effectively.

The Support

My favorite part of this journey is the support and accountability to keep you motivated throughout your program! We check in daily in our online private Facebook community and also have a private tracker app, separate from Facebook to log your workouts, measurements, progress and more!

We share our wins, struggles, swap recipes, and provide all the support you need to successfully reach your goals.

Who is this For?

This is a low-impact, high-intensity, and high-energy workout program for anyone looking to build long, lean, toned muscles.

Since it requires no dance experience, Barre Blend is a great workout for new exercisers or people who are just getting back into fitness. Plus, there is a modifier you can follow.

And if you’re more advanced, you can choose heavier dumbbells, add Resistance Loops, and follow the intensifier, who makes the moves more challenging.

 What Equipment Do I Need?

No Ballet Barre Required! You can use any sturdy household object at the right height (such as a chair, sofa, countertop).

You will need 1-5 lb. weights to complete the workouts.

Resistance Loops and Barre Socks are optional.

Discipline > Motivation ⁣⁣

You are not always going to be motivated. ⁣⁣
You are not always going to be talented. ⁣⁣
You are not always going to know enough. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You can ALWAYS choose to be disciplined. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
This is one of the biggest misconceptions I see in the health & fitness field… successful people DO NOT have more motivation, talent, or smarts. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
They too have days where they don’t feel like it either. ⁣⁣
They too get tired. ⁣⁣
They too would much rather eat peanut butter cups than broccoli too. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But they have the DISCIPLINE to choose to stay on track. ⁣⁣
They have the DRIVE to keep going even when they don’t feel like it. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Tired. ⁣⁣
Uninspired. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Just. Show. Up. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
P.S. Just shared a mini workout over on Instagram 💪⁣⁣ Come find me @daniellegracep

Day ONE

Day one all over again. ☝️⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Today I was all ready to share with you how I started to feel myself sliding back on my journey and was ready to recommit. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Then I realized just how much I’ve screwed up… ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I did that a month ago. ⁣⁣🤦‍♀️
And guess what? ⁣⁣
I didn’t quite follow through. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I started to beat myself up big time. I started to focus on all the things I haven’t been doing. ⁣⁣
My nutrition hasn’t been perfect. ⁣⁣
I haven’t been documenting my journey like I usually do (AKA progress pictures, measurements, etc..) ⁣⁣
My mindset has been slipping (hello seasonal depression & anxiety). ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
But then I realized something. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I was doing EXACTLY what I tell my clients not to do. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
I was choosing to ignore the fact that despite all of this I’ve been continuing to show up. ⁣⁣
I’ve been continuing to eat well 80-90% of the time. ⁣⁣
I’ve been continuing to exercise daily and push myself. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
And here I was focusing on the negative and stressing over things I can no longer change. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
So here’s your reminder as I commit to my day one all over again too. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
You always have a choice. ⁣⁣
Celebrate what you’re doing well. ⁣⁣
Acknowledge the not so great behaviors creeping in. ⁣⁣
And choose to control what you can moving forward. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
One day at a time. One meal at a time. One workout at a time. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
Forever a work in progress on my journey too. In this with you. ⁣👯‍♀️

What is one goal you’re working on for the end of the year?🏋🏻‍♀️

Choose to workout, not because you have to, but because you CAN. ⁣

Please never take your health or granted. ⁣

One of the greatest gifts we are given is the ability to move and so often it can be something we so simply overlook. ⁣

When you are short on time. ⁣
When you feel like quitting. ⁣
When you are tired, grumpy, or just don’t feel like exercising. ⁣

Remember what an amazing privilege it is to move your body. ⁣
Appreciate the fact that you are capable of getting stronger every single day. ⁣
Take advantage of a natural antidepressant and the ability to improve your health. ⁣

Choose to workout… because you CAN. ⁣

Who got their Monday workout in? ⁣💪73124633_981702400316_7622360098949562368_n
