Openfit® and Xtend Barre® Team Up to Create Barre Fitness Program for New Streaming Platform
Internationally Renowned Xtend Barre and New Health and Fitness Streaming Platform Launch Challenging New Workout Program
WESTLAKE VILLAGE, Calif. - Feb. 19, 2019 // PRNewswire // - Openfit, a new digital streaming platform for integrated fitness, nutrition, and wellness, is collaborating with Xtend Barre, the revolutionary international barre fitness sensation fusing Pilates, ballet techniques, and high-energy cardio, to create a highly effective 30-day digital streaming Xtend Barre program. Developed and led by Andrea Rogers, celebrity trainer, professional dancer, and creator of this international boutique barre studio, the program guides participants through a fitness regimen to tone, strengthen, and improve posture and flexibility in 30 minutes.
What is so unique about this program is that the upbeat Xtend Barre workouts strengthen and tone without the strain of lifting heavy weights or high impact cardio. Students always comment about how they never realized a two-pound dumbbell could leave them drenched in sweat, and feeling satisfied, empowered, and strong.
"Andrea is a one-of-a-kind talent, and we believe she has refined the concept of ballet barre into an accessible and effective 30-day program that Openfit subscribers will absolutely love," said Openfit CEO, Jon Congdon. "Her ability to lead and motivate while providing clear instruction that anyone can follow is one of the reasons Xtend Barre is already so popular on our platform. We're honored to help Andrea reach even more people looking to find the perfect workout."
Xtend Barre is created with the everyday person in mind featuring simple movements, straight forward direction, and an efficient workout all in 30 minutes. A ballet barre can be used for some of the routines or a sturdy chair is a ready substitute. The Xtend Barre workouts also include a low-impact modifier for every move, making it accessible for a variety of fitness levels. Comprising ballet techniques and Pilates fundamentals fused with cardio, flexibility, and mobility centric sequences, the comprehensive program focuses on total body, core, arms, legs, and glutes. Xtend Barre fosters both strength and grace while effectively toning muscles and burning fat.
"Xtend Barre is thrilled to be partnered with Openfit to launch our first app and online workout program offering 30 minute workouts that can be performed anytime, anywhere," said Andrea Rogers, Founder of Xtend Barre. "With over 40 studios worldwide and thousands of people Xtending across the globe, my goal was to make Xtend Barre accessible to everyone – for people who do not have access to a local Xtend Barre studio, those who want to Xtend while on the go, and for those who have tried barre and think it's not for them – think again!"
Xtend Barre is available exclusively to Openfit subscribers on Openfit.com and on iOS, Android, and Roku devices. Subscriptions start as low as $8.33/month ($99/year). Visit https://opn.fit/xb to learn more.
