Balancing work, family, friends, and personal time isn't exactly an effortless feat. Add in travel for business or pleasure, trying to keep up with your favorite show, and exercise, and you're a bonafide juggler. Instead of completely falling off of the fitness train and giving up on the gym completely, technology has made it easier than ever to work out from the comfort of your home or hotel room. From streaming a barre class to a HIIT session, there is an option for any level and sweat preference.
It's no secret that New Orleans loves Barre3 (we have three studios!), but what happens if you can't make it into class? You can still access their signature low-impact workout (a combination of yoga, pilates, and ballet) through their online program. Props aren't necessary, modifications are given for each posture, and there are hundreds of videos to choose from, all with varying lengths. You can try the program at no cost for 15 days and should you choose to stick with it, an account costs $29 per month. Streaming is available through computer, mobile, Apple TV and Chromecast.
