We are excited to introduce the newest class to the Iso Barre portfolio: 3-2-1 Iso Intervals.

3-2-1 Iso Intervals (3-2-1 for short) is Iso Barre’s version of HiiT (high intensity interval training.) 3-2-1 alternates 3 minutes of strength/resistance training, 2 minutes of cardio, and 1 minute of concentrated abdominal exercises. This method elevates the heart rate to improve cardiovascular strength and endurance, then medium intensity resistance training lowers the heart rate and builds lean muscle.

This 45-minute class will boost metabolism, burn fat and sculpt muscle. Iso Barre principles of clear instruction, verbal and hands-on correction of form and technique and modifying and progressing exercises makes 3-2-1 suitable for all levels of ability.

Meet Jo Mir, who is running in aid of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation which is a charity very, very close to my heart. Lea: When did you begin...

Happy New Year

Posted by on 10:57 am in blog | 0 comments

For many of us, the month of January is about resolutions- resolving to stop doing things we feel are unhealthy or indulgent, and to start doing things which we hope will improve our overall wellbeing. More often than not these resolutions are viewed as a punishment for a year’s worth of mistakes or shortcomings. Detoxing the mind, the body, the finances, whatever, in hopes that a handful of vitamins or a week of eating nothing but chia seeds will let us emerge in February all shiny and new and bad-habit free. I for one am sulking through...
