You asked… and we’re answering!
what is barre fitness?
Barre Fitness™ is a one hour full body workout that fuses the best elements of ballet, pilates, sports conditioning and stretching for a truly unique and fun experience. The moves are low impact but high intensity intervals of strength training followed immediately by deep recovery stretching. This regimented routine will evenly sculpt and quickly transform the entire body, resulting in a toned, trim physique.
what do you do in a barre fitness class?
Every Barre Fitness™ class is fun and empowering class set to today’s hottest music. Classes begin with a warm up focusing on postural strength and alignment, followed by a series of upper body exercises using light weights. The ballet barre is used to sculpt the lower body, abs and for flexibility training. Then it is down to the mat with a fitball for core work and a relaxing and invigorating final stretch.
what to wear?
Please wear comfortable, breathable workout wear. We suggest tight fitting clothing so that the instructor can easily see form and alignment. The workout is done in socks, please feel free to bring your own or purchase a pair in studio.
