I love barre workouts and do both the Bar Method and a regular ballet fundamentals class.
I too started five or six weeks ago and have noticed that my thighs are already more toned, my balance is better and my core is much stronger. I know I'm losing inches, but haven't measured yet.
I'm eight or nine pounds towards a 20 pound weight loss, which I'm attributing to eating well and tracking religiously on SP. I take up to four classes per week and also walk and practice yoga.
So, my results are similar to yours - including reduced back pain! A strong core helps with that problem, in my case at least.
I'm interested to hear what others think of these barre classes - and DVDs for home use.
