Frequently Asked Questions


I am new to barre. What should I expect?

Be prepared for a fun and challenging full body workout. Barre fitness is extremely effective in toning the arms, sculpting the thighs, lifting the seat, and strengthening the core. Classes are choreographed to upbeat music in a motivating group environment.

What do I need to bring to class?

All you need is a water bottle, yoga or dance wear, and grip socks (bare feet are fine too). We have everything else at the studio.

Why do my muscles shake during barre class?

When your muscles start to shake, it is a sign of muscle fatigue. This is what you want! Barre fitness allows you to isolate each muscle group by holding contractions for an extended period of time, which builds muscle strength and endurance. So embrace the shake!
