Ballet fitness is a modality of gym exercises, created by dancer Betina Dantas, which mixes the steps and posture of ballet classes with bodybuilding exercises, such as sit-ups, push-ups and squats, for example, being a excellent option for those who don't like the monotony of bodybuilding classes at the gym.
Despite the name, it is not necessary to have knowledge of ballet to take fitness ballet classes, because the basic principles and body positions are trained throughout the classes, becoming more natural in performing the exercises every day.
So, fitness ballet classes, in addition to being more fun than normal bodybuilding classes, also bring many benefits such as losing up to 790 calories in just 30 minutes, improving posture and increasing muscle definition and flexibility.
