​The Best ​Ballet Workout​ to Help You Sweat From Home​: Ballet Beautiful

With gyms closed and more people than ever working from home due to the coronavirus pandemic, staying active and engaging in physical fitness activities can be challenging, but finding a way to adapt to these new conditions is vital to maintaining both our emotional and physical health.

Thankfully, homebound workouts prove to be an effective (and just as sweaty) alternative to our regular gym sesh, requiring little to no equipment. Take Ballet Beautiful, for example, a go-to for numerous celebrities including the likes of Natalie Portman, Liv Tyler, and Doutzen Kroes, which offers an online streaming subscription service.

We’ve mentioned Ballet Beautiful before, but this ballet-inspired fitness method and lifestyle brand founded by former New York City Ballet dancer, Mary Helen Bowers, offers a ballet-inspired barre and cardio workout designed to build strength, promoting lean, sculpted muscles. The best part is you don’t need any dance experience. The exercises are made for everyone, and there are plenty of beginner classes to stream.

So how does streaming work? Single videos are available to purchase from $8.99, and series bundles, like the Five Minute Legs and Butt Bundle, start from as little $10.99. But if you’re looking to find workouts tailored to your specific goals, it’s worth subscribing to the Custom Workout subscription for just $39.99 a month, where you’ll have unlimited access to Ballet Beautiful’s full streaming library of over 300 videos, with at least two new workouts added each month. Plus, for a limited time, you can get your first month for $16.99 with code BBMAY20.

Through the Custom Workout subscription, you’ll build a personalized program that you can update at any point. First, you’ll be asked to choose a fitness goal, whether that’s Arms and Abs, Legs and Butt, Fat Blaster, or Full Body. Next, you’ll select how many hours you can commit to exercising in the week. Once you’ve toggled these settings, you’ll receive a daily schedule of streaming classes, curated exclusively by Ballet Beautiful trainers who’ll send you a new Custom Workout program on the first of every month to keep you motivated. Beyond that, you can create your own playlists, which can be as lengthy as you like, using any of the videos.
