Who hasn't had a serious case of ballerina body envy: long, lithe limbs and an innate grace that the rest of us mere mortals seem unable to possess? But who has the years of experience and grueling hours of commitment necessary to actually make said ballerina body happen? Thanks to Ballet Beautiful's new online workout program, dreams of a ballet-ready figure are suddenly much more attainable.
Founded by professional ballerina Mary Helen Bowers (the fitness powerhouse behind Natalie Portman's transformation in Black Swan), Ballet Beautiful is a fitness method that can give women the straight posture, lean muscles, and inhuman flexibility of a ballet dancer.
A New York address is no longer necessary to reap the benefits of Ballet Beautiful. Last week, Bowers was joined by Victoria's Secret Angels Lily Aldridge and Erin Heatherton to launch Ballet Beautiful's new online workout program. For $39.99 a month, users will have access to two new workouts every month, as well as a streaming library and workouts personalized to both your fitness goals and free time. Not to mention, it's available anywhere in the world, at any time (as long as there's WiFi!). A beautiful, ballet-ready body is just a few clicks (and a few more workouts) away! For more information, head to balletbeautiful.com (opens in new tab).
