All late cancels and no-shows will automatically be charged $10.00 for that class, regardless of membership type. We hope this policy will keep our classes full and make them easier to get into. We want to keep the wait lists short, thereby making a better barre pose fusion experience for all our amazing clients. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation!

You can come as often as you like!  We recommend attending 4 – 5 classes a week.

 

Isometric systems like Barre workouts, unlike aerobics and boot camp, work by means of precise positioning. If students don’t get in the right positions, while they may get a good workout, they are not sculpting their bodies effectively. The better a student’s form, the faster the incredible results occur. The muscles need to be challenged by maintaining the contraction consistently throughout each exercise. Barre becomes more and more interesting the more you do it. The key ingredient that gives the workout its staying power is the precision with which it targets and sculpts your muscles.  

HOW OFTEN SHOULD I ATTEND BARRE CLASS TO SEE RESULTS?

Absolutely! You can attend a Barre class (NO antigravity yoga), but you must have a doctor’s consent. Read more about the benefits of Pre and Post Natal exercise here!

Barre is the quickest, most efficient way to change the shape of your body. Hollywood has embraced Barre workouts too.  Today Barre is the hottest workout among celebrities, such as Kelly Ripa, Renee Zellweger, Drew Barrymore and the list goes on and on.

 

Although it is a hot new workout trend, Barre fitness classes are actually based on the Lotte Berk Method developed in the ‘70s.  Lotte Berk was a professional dancer who, when faced with injury, developed her own method of fitness combining dance training, yoga and physical therapy principles.  The amazingly effective method of fitness has made a huge resurgence during the past five years.
