Barre

Barre is a modern version of classic balletic training; a 30-minute workout designed to shape and tone postural muscles, build core strength, and allow you to escape the everyday.

Incorporating classic ballet positions, with modern music, Barre is a combination of cardio and strength with high reps of small range-of-motion movements and very light weights.

If you're seeking a different style of training or a new kind of self-expression, you will love Barre. Without the traditional barre to support you, the muscles supporting your body’s stability and strength becomes the focus. It may look beautiful, but don’t underestimate the burn.

More About Barre

  • What to Wear to Barre Class?

    When choosing your workout attire, think yoga wear. Leggings, a sports bra, and tank will do the trick. As for footwear, you won't need it! Go barefoot or do the class in grippy socks to prevent slipping.

  • How Does a Barre Workout Stack Up Against Cardio?

    One of the best parts about barre classes is that they combine strength training and cardio,, so you're burning fat and building muscle at the same time. (This intense barre class at home doubles as cardio!). Our technique focuses on strengthening the muscles, and muscle tissue burns 15 times as many calories as fat. The stronger you get, the more calories you'll burn round the clock.

  • What to Expect from a Barre Class?

    You'll start with a warm up and sequence of upper-body exercises, which include free weights, push-ups, planks and other moves to target the biceps, triceps, chest, and back muscles.

    Next, you'll use the ballet barre and your own body weight for resistance to focus on the thigh and seat muscles. Your core will be engaged the entire class and then targeted at the end.

    For the cool down, you'll go through a series of stretches to increase flexibility and allow your muscles to recover. Most classes are 60 minutes
