There's a new type of exercise class that's becoming popular, and instructors at Minot's YMCA say they are among the first gyms in the state to offer it.
As Carla Burbidge tells us in this week's Eye on Health, it involves simple ballet moves.
Grab your exercise clothes and head to the gym, and by the way you don't even need your shoes for this class.
It's called Booty Barre, which is a combination of ballet moves and pilates.
(Andrea Golden, Booty Barre Instructor) "It's a lot more work for your gluts, through your abdominal region, it's more of an area that a lot of women have been interested so putting two mediums together that they can enjoy."
Instructors at Minot's YMCA recently became certified in Booty Barre.
Bars were installed in the exercise room, and they now offer the class three days a week.
This class may be based on ballet, but it's designed for all types of people.
(Andrea Golden, Booty Barre Instructor) "It's not so complicated that if you've never taken a dance class before, you can come and do it. My husband has done the class before. Anybody can come and do the class."
These days, there are so many types of exercises and classes to choose from.
But instructors say the most important thing is find one that's for you.
(Andrea Golden, Booty Barre Instructor) "You never know what you're going to find and really enjoy. If you find something you enjoy you'll keep doing it and that's the most important thing. Find something you enjoy and stick with it."
Booty Barre first became a popular exercise choice for celebrities, and now the class is offered for everyone.
Another option for people who want to stay fit and healthy.
