Online Workout Studio faqs
I’m new to the online studio. Where should I start?I’m so excited you’re going to be working out with me! How you start your journey will depend on your fitness levels.
BeginnerCheck out the videos under the ‘Beginner’ filter in the streaming library.
Back after a breakIf you’re working out again after some time off, I recommend the 28 day sculpt plan. This is a downloadable ebook that includes a beginners’ guide and a streaming schedule, as well as more than 30 exclusive recipes to ensure you’re eating delicious, nourishing food throughout the program.
Workout regularDive into your monthly workout plan straight away! This gives you a customized exercise routine six days a week, leaving you one day for rest and recovery. To increase flexibility and prevent injury throughout the plan, I’d also suggest starting the six week stretching program.
Do I need to be a dancer or have previous dance experience?Although Ballet Blast is inspired by the techniques I learned as a professional ballerina, you do not need ANY dance experience to do these exercises. Using the best of ballet, you’ll rely on your body for resistance in order to burn fat and create long, lean, sculpted muscles. You’ll also improve your balance, core strength, posture and flexibility.
Are these workouts suitable for beginners?As long as you have no current injuries and a good level of everyday fitness (walking up stairs and sitting down/standing up easily) these workouts will be great for you. Almost all of the routines are bodyweight-only, giving you a low-impact way to boost your fitness and get stronger. You can find my favorite beginners’ workout program in the 28 day sculpt plan, and simply use the filter in the streaming library to search for beginner videos.
Do I need any equipment for the workouts?You don’t need any special equipment to do these workouts, 90% of which are bodyweight-only. In some cases you have the option to use:
- Medium-heavy resistance band
- 3lb and 5lb dumbbells
- 10-15lb kettlebell
However, if you don't already own these and don’t want to buy them either, you can still do the exercises without equipment.
