Does Beachbody Barre blend work?

Elise Joan created Barre Blend to be a high-intensity, low-impact workout. The blend of pilates, yoga, barre, and cardio will get your heart pumping, and every class is a total body workout that uses just your body weight and 2lb weights! It is also very effective; the before and after Barre Blend photos are really impressive!

She also has pre- and post- natal Barre Blend classes for expecting moms!
