Many people shy away from exercise because they suffer from arthritis, and find that traditional workout programs place too much stress on their joints. If you’re one of those people, you’ll be glad to know that a ballet barre workout plan can not only help you firm and tone your muscles, but it is also easy on the joints as well.

A ballet barre workout is low-impact, which means you’ll never have to worry about excess pounding that could wreak havoc on your joints. The exercises are also performed slowly, so there is no need to worry about sudden movements creating stress on your joints either. All of them are designed to improve flexibility and increase muscle mass, which in turn provides more support to the joints and helps ease pain.

Some ballet workouts also incorporate the use of hand weights, fitness balls or resistance bands to further tone and shape the muscles. This is beneficial because strength training also helps build strong bones, which is especially important if you also suffer from osteoporosis.

Good form and posture are stressed throughout a workout to ensure you get the most benefit from your routine possible. This helps you outside the studio because you are less likely to suffer back or hip pain when you are aware of your posture and make a conscious effort to keep your body properly aligned.

In the event an exercise is stressful on your joints, it can easily be modified to make it more comfortable while still providing you with the same benefits. Those who have tried a ballet barre workout report tremendous improvement in their arthritis condition in only a few weeks.  Feel free to contact us to find out more about how a ballet barre workout could improve your arthritis condition and overall health.
