    I really liked this. I just wish there was a way to track calories burned on SP Fitness Tracker. I'm not sure how to do that. - 7/24/2016   7:25:34 PM

    I tried her 30-minute "knee-friendly" barre workout, but had to pivot one foot at a time, since doing both on carpet stressed my knees. Then the twisting plank & tricep dips hurt wrists and elbows to the point of tears. I'll never try that again! - 6/24/2016   11:11:18 PM

    I took a class like this for about four months. It was interesting. Men were telling me it was an easy, girly class. They admitted they had never taken one. Though they insisted it was a class for delicate girls. - 1/11/2016   1:01:02 AM

    This was a great workout! It definitely felt like ballet class, but more intense. I think my legs will be sore tomorrow...thank you!!! - 7/19/2015   9:06:29 PM

    I think this would have been effective for me had I not started cracking up over how much the front of my thighs were burning. I had to pause and laugh it out... but belly laughs burn calories too so no complaints here. *grin* I look forward to trying this one again and moving on to the next. - 5/14/2015   6:41:25 PM

    Seems like a good routine but the living room setting is a bit distracting. You can't really see what your legs are doing. A better option would be at a studio - 1/28/2015   4:04:45 PM

    Looks like a good exercise. Wonder if I can find my old ballet slippers? - 1/28/2015   10:17:35 AM

    Trying barre was on my to-do list, and this was a great intro. Thanks! - 1/27/2015   6:11:50 PM

    This was very timely; I just posted in my blog how I am planning to switch from traditional cardio/strength workouts to something I truly enjoy -- dance! Don't let the 'barre' label fool you -- I was really working throughout. I look forward to trying Jessica's other ballet workouts. - 1/27/2015   10:47:48 AM

    Barre with Jessica is no joke! They are so effective and actually fun. I had a good case of DOMS after another one of Jessica's barre workout but now my thighs are shring! I have been participating in Jessica's #FITIN15 since day one and I have realy enjoyed it. Jessica is such a sweetheart and so motivating. Check her out!!!! - 1/26/2015   9:29:44 AM
