Tara Lipinski & the Gold Barre workout at Equinox


A new “spin” on barre. inspired by Olympic Gold Medalist, Tara Lipinski, you can now train like an
Olympic Ice Skater off the ice! Your strength, balance, power and endurance will be put to the ultimate test through a sequence of exercises that prepare you for the footwork, spins and jumps typically performed on the ice. Get ready to train like an athlete and get the booty, thighs and core of one too!


THE WORKOUT

Utilizing yoga straps and gliding disks coupled with body weighted sequencing and explosive plyometrics primarily performed on a single leg, this workout is designed to deliver an intensity beyond what is typically experienced in a traditional barre class. The sequencing incorporates the graceful movement seen in an ice skaters performance and challenges the balance, flexibility, strength and endurance an Olympic skater is required to have in order to
execute intricate footwork and powerful jumps. It’s a functional workout that moves through all planes of motion
while incorporating an isometric focus that barre lovers will recognize and crave.


TARA LIPINSKI'S VISION

“Throughout my skating career I was exposed to endless fitness resources to stay in top shape to compete. When I transitioned from the ice to the broadcast booth my fitness routine took a serious hit. I began my search to find a workout that could mimic my competitive training routine and keep my body in the same shape. I went to just about every barre, spin or bootcamp class imaginable and I would walk away with bits and pieces from each class, but nothing compared to the workout I got on the ice. I strug gled to find that full body workout my body craved. I came up with the idea to design a barre class that could mimic figure skating moves and create the perfect workout. People are constantly chasing ‘the perfect booty’ and they will find it with this class. This
class will not only tone and lengthen muscles but will increase endurance and stamina as well.”
