What is Barre Body?

Barre Body works the entire body while targeting individual body areas to burn fat and sculpt and tone your seat, arms, thighs and abs. This is achieved through small isometric movements that work the muscle to fatigue and then stretch to lengthen it out. Barre Body is an athletic fusion of elements from dance, Pilates, light weights and cardio. A few pieces of equipment beyond the barre itself will be used. This includes light hand weights and a rubber ball. We have two class styles.

Sculpt and Tone

A one hour class, set to excellent music, that blends the use of light weights, a ball, and a ballet barre to strengthen and lengthen the body. Inspired by Pilates and ballet strengthening and conditioning work. If you are brand new this is a good place to start.

Cardio

One hour class, set to excellent music, that blends the use of light weights, a ball, and a ballet barre to strengthen and lengthen the body. Class includes some ass whooping cardio intervals that will have you sweating and groaning in-between the toning!

What are the benefits?

Barre Body aims to quickly create long, lean muscles. Toned thighs, a lifted seat, flat abs, and increased fat-burning and flexibility, as well as improved posture, are just some of the benefits of Barre Body. Many fanatics of Barre say it has completely transformed their bodies. Barre is also a non-impact workout, making it safe for almost anyone.

What to expect in your first class

Classes are fun, energetic, fast-paced and last for 60 minutes. Each class starts with a warmup then a focus on each area of the body with movements and stretching. High energy, fun, booty shaking music to get you moving.

If you’re new to Barre Body, come to class with an open mind because the concept is so different and innovative. Expect to feel a serious burn and see results within your first 10 classes! We recommend three to five classes per week for best results.

Who is Barre best for?

Barre Body is great for anyone looking to burn fat and tone their core, seat, arms and thighs in a fun group setting. Although this technique was inspired by ballet, you do not have to be a dancer to participate. Instructors will offer modifications to meet your current fitness level.
