What is Barre?
Barre combines Pilates, resistance training and ballet to strengthen, shape and tone in a low impact environment fit for any fitness level and all ages. Barre is a full body workout that uses isometric movements, light weights, and your own body weight to tone and strengthen each muscle group. Barre Nation focuses on proper alignment, a strong core, increasing flexibility and feeling stronger with each class. Every class is exciting and combines athletic movements with ballet barre positions to provide a class that is challenging but not overwhelming. We max out our muscles and then provide a thorough stretch to encourage strong, lean and flexible bodies for an overall greater quality of life.
What do I wear?
Please wear whatever you feel most comfortable working out in. We do our workouts without shoes. Socks are optional and not required. We are truly come as you are!
