🏋️♂️ – Difficulty Level – Medium
🔎 – The Basics – Workouts are done barefoot or in grippy socks.
“Barre fitness is a hybrid workout class – combining ballet-inspired moves with elements of Pilates, dance, yoga and strength training. Most classes incorporate a ballet barre and use classic dance moves such as plies, alongside static stretches. Barre also focuses on high reps of small range movements. “
We used small free weights and a ball. The exercises were small movements and holds. The hardest for me were the holds up on my toes. The types of movements were a lot of squats and lifts but again very small and isolated movements. The workout ended on the mat as many do for abdominal work.
We were encouraged to work at a level we could handle. Modification suggestions were given to make it more doable or more challenging. We were encouraged to push ourselves but also listen to our bodies.
🤩 Atmosphere – Very welcoming and friendly. It was all women but it is not exclusively for women. It was obvious that it is a close and encouraging community.
🏢 – Facility – One main room for class. They do have a child watch area for an extra fee. The lobby is large and encourages members to socialize afterwards. I loved the little shop in the front of the studio! There were the cutest workout clothes. I definitely need to check that out again.
⌚️ – Workout Length – 1 Hour
⚡️ – Overall – Loved the energy and how engaged the instructors were. I highly recommend working out at Barre 3. If you are looking for a community that is encouraging and promotes feeling your best. This is it.
