We were also convinced that these two activities weren't a match made in heaven, and then this video of Claire Thomas, the chef and blogger behind Kitchy Kitchen, demonstrating countertop barre moves with a Pop Physique instructor proved us wrong.

This is especially true in the colder winter weather we're fast approaching (admit it—even leaving bed in the morning feels insurmountable) and especially when we can burn the calories in the kitchen where the food is. So if you want to see results from your workout but are short on time, watch this video to learn some ballet-inspired toning techniques to easily squeeze into your routine without having to change your lifestyle. Once you nail the down the moves from this video, all you need is a solid playlist!
