What is BARRE FITNESS?
Barre fitness classes are simply ballet-inspired, incorporating a ballet barre, and maybe some plies or releves here and there, into the workout. Essentially, barre classes mix elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training, and the moves are choreographed to motivating music. Dance experience is NOT a requirement.
In each energizing & targeted workout, you’ll use the barre and exercise equipment such as mini-balls and small hand weights to sculpt, slim and lengthen your entire body. Expect fun, motivation, and shaking!
Performing a barre workout 2-4 times weekly may create changes in as little as one month. Changes may include improved posture, more toned thighs, chiseled arms, a sculpted back, flatter abs and a lifted seat. Barre classes are incredibly effective at transforming so-called ‘problem’ areas, especially for women. (results may vary)
The concentration involved while taking Barre and the end of class mindfulness period allows you to block “life” out during class, creating the mental benefits similarly obtained by the practice of yoga or meditation.

Barre Fit is a 45 minute total body workout that focuses on four areas
- Upper body
- Booty (Glutes)
You will work the target area to exhaustion, where you’ll feel the burn and see the shaking. Modifications are available based on individual level. Stretching is performed immediately after each focus area in order to lengthen the already warm muscles. There is a warm up to start and a mindfulness based cool down period at the end.
Just as the name suggests, this class ramps up the intensity level.
Think Barre Fit at a faster pace with a sprinkle of HIIT (High Intensity Interval Training) mixed in.
Modifications are available based on individual level.
It’s an excellent way to tone and get your heart rate up all in one quick 40 minute workout!
What to bring? a yoga mat, bottle of water, and a positive attitude!
Suggested attire: yoga pants, comfortable top, and barre/yoga socks with grips on the bottom for added stability on the wood floor.
