Why Barre?

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!


Our Method

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.

Our Story

Be Barre Fit opened in 2014  and has since helped 100's of clients achieve their goals, we believe that working out should be safe, inclusive and get results.
