Kayla Itsines's Sweat App Launches Barre and Yoga Workouts Featuring New Badass Trainers
We're already big fans of Kayla Itsines's fitness app Sweat and the muscle-building, fat-blasting, and heart-pumping workouts it features. We love that some workouts are bodyweight-only, while others require minimal equipment (think: just one set of dumbbells). While the focus has primarily been on strength training and cardio, there are other workouts fans have been requesting — and Sweat listened.
Starting today, Sweat now offers two new workouts: yoga and barre. These styles of training are perfect for people looking to do something more low-impact or to supplement other training plans. The best part? All of these workouts are designed to be done at home. "The reality is that many women don't train using the one fitness style," Kayla said in a statement. "They want to be able to include other fitness styles, like barre or yoga, alongside their high-intensity and strength workouts."
"Increasing our offering and giving women the choice to workout with more fitness styles they love or maybe haven't tried before is really exciting. I've had the pleasure of getting to know Britany, Phyllicia and Ania over the last few months and they all have serious expertise and are so passionate about their training styles. I can't wait for the SWEAT community to try their new programs."
The workouts will be led by a crop of new trainers, all with their own expertise and experience. The new barre program, Barre With Britany, will be led by Sweat instructor Britany Williams. The new yoga classes feature vinyasa instructor Phyllicia Bonanno, who will be teaching Yoga With Phyllicia, as well as vinyasa instructor Ania Tippkemper teaching Yoga With Ania. And while these workouts are new, the Body and Mind (BAM) yoga program by Sjana Elise will still be available in the Sweat app.
