Fall Freebie Barre Workout script

Hi everybody, happy Halloween! Our get fit for Fall Freebie is all about the legs. We’re going to firm and target tone our hips our thighs and our buttocks with Barre workout. It’s wonderful. You’ll feel so good and you’ll lengthen your legs, strengthen and tone them. So all you need is a chair. So grab a chair and let’s get started. We’re gonna work on the inner thighs, the outer thighs as well as the back of the thighs, all the angles for the legs. That’s it. This way we’ll get nice and tone so we can have some Halloween candy. I love candy, but everything in moderation. Remember, balance is the key and that’s why I’m here for you today. It’s all about getting it in, shaping and toning. Okay, we got a couple more. Just like that. Lift the leg and lift behind you. When you lift up, squeeze the buttocks. The thighs. This is back of the thighs. That’s it. No more cellulite back there. We’ll burn it all off right there. Last one and let’s just hold it here. Hold it here. That’s it. Beautiful.

And lift the leg out. Quadriceps strength in the thigh muscles, that’s it. Pull it back in. That’s it. Out, and think about good posture, be graceful, be light. That’s it’s all about lifting and Tony and strengthening and lengthening. We’ve got one more. Hold it up there and now shift your weight forward and let’s work the back side. Lift and lower. That’s it. Just baby lifts, lifts, that’s it. Great. Stomach is in back, is strong and straight. It’s all about the tushie and the back of your thighs. That’s it we’ve got one more. Hold it up now. Hold it up. Great. Lift up, up, up, up, up, and release. Great, and now let’s take it all the way down and back up. Squeeze the inner thighs.

Now we’re going to target on the inside of our thighs, the area we all need to squeeze it. If you walk or run, you still don’t get to target the inner thighs. This is a very specific area that we all need to firm up and this one exercise, a little plie, really works on the inner thighs as you come up. Really squeeze everything inside. Feel it. Lift, squeeze the quadriceps. Good, two more and last one to hold it up there and relevate all the way up. That’s it. Relevate. Can you balance? Lift up your chest, squeeze your inner thighs together. Back is strong and straight. You’re beautiful. You’re lengthened you’re strengthened and release.

Let’s go the other side. Just place your chair to the other side and let’s begin our leg swings. It’s a lift and over. Just lift your leg and pull up behind you like sweeping, and switch. Feel as though you’re a ballerina. That’s it. Feel nice and graceful. You’re feeling good about yourself. That’s it. Great workout. I also have full barre routines on my 10-week plan. For those of you that want to join, go ahead and join. You’ll love it. You’ll lose weight even before the new year. You’ll keep your weight off and you’ll lose a lot of weight. The average person has been losing about 22 pounds at 10 weeks. If you follow my plan and it’s worth it because I give you meal plans, some exercises every day, and also some great inspiration because that’s what I really want to help all of us with, motivating ourselves, inspire you. Last one and lift it up back is strong, back is straight. That’s it.

Think about your thighs now. Strengthen and lengthen. It’s all about those quadriceps. That’s it. This’ll keep your muscles of your thighs nice and strong, so if you want to get fit for fall and get yourself ready for ski season, this is the exercises to do. You know why? Because it strengthens the muscles surrounding your knees. Keeping your knees strong, ready to ski. We got one more lift it up. Hold it up and sweep it forward and hold it up.

Yes, it’s all about beautiful, lengthening those legs, lengthen and strengthen, tone and firm, that’s what we’re doing right here. Working our muscles.
