CARDIO-BARRE: The Hottest Exercise Sweeping the Country
After bringing his talent from New York City to Los Angeles, from the big screen to the small screen and even to the stage, dancer/choreographer Richard Giorla, has used his over 20 years of experience and classical training to create Cardio Barre, one of today's hottest new fitness workouts right here in Studio City. Touted by celebrities and athletes as the "best workout ever," this barre based cardio workout is unlike any other exercise class offered in other gyms and studios.
Cardio Barre is a unique class that combines barre work and light weights with continual fat burning motion. Central to the workout are toning and resistance exercises for the butt, legs, torso and arms to sculpt muscles and elongate the appearance of your body. You can get a dancer's body with no dance experience.
First we had Yoga then Pilates to get long and lean but what about cardio? In a one hour Cardio Barre class clients will learn how to get the long lean look of Pilates and Yoga combined with the added benefit of pumping their heart with the cardio. And to top it off it is a no impact class - no jumping up and down, no punching and no kicking. When you work at the barre you have a sense of center and balance that allows you to concentrate on the muscle group you are working on. You'll actually have fun while getting in shape in a comfortable, personalized atmosphere.
To find the hottest exercise sweeping the country, you don't have to go any further than Riverside Drive in the heart of Studio City and into the Cardio Barre. Owner and creator Richard Giorla has also written the best selling book "Raise the Barre," where he discusses his 8-week program for total mind body transformation. Cardio Barre is located at 12530 Riverside Drive. Call 761-4525 about classes.
