3 Reasons Why Your Portable Ballet Barre May Be a Better Value Than a Gym Membership

If you're like many from Canada & the United States, a portable ballet barre may be a better value than a gym membership. Don't get us wrong. We like gyms, and they can be a good investment for some people. On the other hand, as many as 67% of gym memberships go unused, according to numerous studies like the one cited in this USA Today story. Take a look at 3 common reasons why a gym membership often lapses, and see how portable ballet barres can help you stay on track.

Home Barres are Convenient: The biggest reason for not making it to the gym is lack of time. Other responsibilities pile up, and you can't find a way to get there. When you have a barre at home there's no commute.

Home Barres are Habit Forming: You miss one or two gym session, and the next thing you know it's been months since you exercised. With home equipment you can do a brief workout on busy days so you don't get out of the habit completely.

Home Barres are Private: You're not alone if you feel awkward trying to work out next to someone who already looks like an Olympic athlete. At home, you can relax, and wear any old thing.

Of course, it's not necessarily an either or situation. Having a portable ballet barre at home may help you get to the gym more consistently because it's easier to enjoy exercise when you're fit, and you may like to make part of your routine more social by taking barre classes or participating in other group activities.
