Total Barre™ Endurance with Music™, Level 1• 4hr
This high-energy four-hour workshop, developed by the MERRITHEW™ team, is a great opportunity for Instructors looking to bring music-inspired movement to their clients. Following the class template used in the Total Barre Foundation Course and with the same level of intensity, Instructors learn unique choreography to create a biomechanically well-balanced and fun Barre program. Incorporating light props such as the Flex-Band®, Mini Stability Ball™ and Toning Balls™ gives Instructors more flexibility for their clients in an hour-long, endurance-focused class. A recommended play list of music is provided, as well as suggested beats per minute for each segment, so you can build on this and select your own music to create theme-based classes (i.e. Disco, Acid Jazz, Reggae, and Salsa etc).
Total Barre™ Endurance with Music™, Level 2• 2hr
Taking things up a notch, this two-hour workshop, developed by the MERRITHEW™ team, adds even more neuromuscular challenge to coordination learned in Level 1. Following the class template in the Foundation Course and Endurance with Music, Level 1, this workshop adds balance and strength exercises with the addition of a number of props such as small Handweights or Toning Balls™, Foam Rollers and Ankle Tubing to help challenge and bump up the strength and calorie burning results their clients are after. Working in a continuous flow to keep the heart rate elevated, a recommended play list of music is provided, as well as suggested beats per minute for each segment, to build upon in order to provide clients with an hour-long endurance-plus class.
Total Barre™ Endurance with Music™ for the Active Adult • 2hr
Many people shy away from exercise when they experience limited mobility or restricted movement. Research shows that all active adults can benefit from exercising with music as it helps improve learning and memory, builds self-esteem, reduces stress and increases social interaction. This workshop developed by the MERRITHEW™ team, follows the Total Barre template while teaching the appropriate biomechanical principles to help with cueing, motivating and modifying safely for less mobile, active adult clients. Leave with a client program that increases flexibility, balance and postural stability. A recommended play list of music is provided as well as suggested beats per minute for each segment.
