Our signature one hour barre classes incorporate movements inspired from Ballet, Yoga and Pilates. This is a effective total body workout that uses micro movements that fatigue your muscles. We use small weights, resistance bands, straps, rubber balls and blocks. Be prepared to shake your way to a lifted, toned more flexible body. Instructors offer modifications as well as hands on assists. No two classes are the same.
Benefits of Barre
- Low impact and low risk.
- Works the entire body, targets every muscle group.
- Builds core strength, balance and flexibility.
- Improves posture.
- Promotes a longer, leaner body.
- Modifications for every age group.
- It's fun and never boring!
Every Be Barre Fit class starts with a warm-up, upper-body exercises and push-ups in the middle of the room, followed by a sequence of leg and seat work at the barre and core exercises on the floor. The method predominantly uses your own bodyweight for resistance along with a few basic props – free weights, resistance bands, mats and a ball.
Students are continually challenged with endless variations of each exercise timed to the beat of the music. While each class is unique, the method follows a consistent sequence to work the right muscles in the right order, in order to maximize results. Students of all levels work within their individual limits while receiving encouragement to continually push forward.

In March 2019 I took over the ownership of Be Barre Fit from founder Trish Davidson. I am a professional kick boxer and the owner of Jack's Gym in Newark. I wanted to offer clients options of high intensity workouts with low impact workouts at Be Barre Fit. My goal is to continue to grow the studio with new offerings of cardio kickboxing, yoga and TRX.

After being diagnosed with Lupus, Monica felt the need to find something that would help her to escape
and bring some calmness to her life. She was looking for something that would heal her body, mind,
and spirit. A friend introduced Monica to yoga, and at the end of her first practice, Monica knew that
this was the something she was searching for. She never looked back! Each day she steps onto her mat,
she feels grateful to have a place to go when she wants to escape for a while and to bring some
calmness to her life. This is the feeling that Monica strives to cultivate in her students. She brings a
lightness and humor into her classes. With a drive and desire to help others, Monica emphasizes the
need to understand the importance of breath and movement and reminds students to find the balance
between comfort and ease. When you come to her class, she will encourage you to “come as you are”,
be present in the now, and to enjoy your escape on your mat.
