The Bar Method is hugely popular type of pilates/yoga-inspired exercise in USA and has recently hit our shores along with spinning and the like. Now London-based Heartcore Pilates ups the ante with Xtend Barre, a new method which combines toning exercises at the barre with killer stretches to create a lean physique, better posture and ‘a serious side-order of burned calories’. As exercise trends go, we predict that this one will catch on. Prepare to burn.
