Vbarre

Has anyone come across this one? http://www.vbarre.com/home/index.html

There's a clip - http://vimeo.com/38809987 - that shows her using a slide-board.

She has some online videos which you can purchase (it sounds like they mightn't be downloadable, but sit in your cloud for you to watch whenever you want): http://www.vbarre.com/videos/?p=browse&id=1

This isn't the gliding mat workout everyone was waiting for some time ago was it? Wasn't that Beyond Barre or something like that?

Yes, I don't believe they have ever come up with said barre / sliding mat workout, though. Here is the trailer that everyone (myself included) was hyped up about: http://beyondbarre.com/about/

Well, it doesn't look at all like Beyond Barre's "planned" DVD.

I thought those who were excited by/went out and bought glide boards in anticipation of Beyond Barre's workout might be interested in this one...

I agree Gancho Girl. A few people here purchased glide boards at Goodwill, etc. in anticipation of the Beyond Barre dvd that hasn't materialized. I am sure they would be thrilled to find a barre workout that utilizes the glide board!

Also, did anyone else notice that Dr Emily Splichal has a downloadable V-Core workout on this site? I wonder if she is partnering with V Barre? (Or maybe not...There seems to be a variety of different instructors' workouts on the link for V Barre.)

I think the link between V-Core and Vbarre is the website that I stumbled across Vbarre on - http://www.leadersinfitness.com/home/index.php

I was looking at a couple of Pilates websites trying to work through some visualisation ideas for my classes over the next few ideas, and one had a link or ad to the Leaders in Fitness website. I was intrigued (and procrastinating) so I clicked it. Amongst the courses they've got are some by Dr Emily and some on Vbarre (and some on Pilates!).

There are some nice selections of videos. I don't like that you can't download them but I do like that you can at least purchase them individually without an expiration date. I worry though if they go out of business, then do you lose access to your purchase?

Anyway, I purchased the Strength Training for Runners. There are some cardio/mma ones from Fitness Fusion on there that look good, I may try one of those too.

I really like the look of that workout but I find the music does not fit AT ALL.
