“Barre class is a workout technique inspired by elements of ballet, yoga, and Pilates.

Focused on low-impact, high-intensity movements designed to strengthen your body in ways that few other workouts can.

Each barre class is designed to be a full-body, muscle endurance workout.  Typically, a class is broken into different sections that focus on major muscle groups including the arms, legs, glutes, and core. In addition to building strength, this full-body workout also develops agility and flexibility. In some classes, you’ll use just the barre (or equivalent like a countertop or chair back) and your body weight to churn out rep after rep of muscle-burning move, while others incorporate tools like resistance bands, sliders, ankle weights, free weights, exercise balls, and more.
