The Barre


The body-sculpting, fat-burning workout. Direct from the USA, The Barre is a 60 minute total-body workout combining elements of Pilates, resistance training, and ballet. The majority of the regime is performed on a ballet barre (from which it takes its name).

It produces a defined, lean, muscular body shape akin to that of a dancer even though you may never have done a dance step in your life! The programme takes the most effective dance training moves and strips them down to the base mechanics of the movement (removing all the "fluffy" stuff), these muscle mechanics make up the Barre routine. Short series of small, intense movements targets individual muscle groups to a fast "burn", which is immediately followed by a stretching series of that muscle group. Here are some of the responses so far: "A class at The Barre reaches parts other classes don't reach! All those tough to tone areas around my hips and thighs finally got a real workout. I can already feel the difference after just one class" "After having my two children I didn't feel like I had much of a waist but after just a few classes I could already see a difference!" Opening times: Monday: 10am - 7.30pm Tuesday: 10am - 7.30pm Wednesday: 10am - 7.30pm Thursday: 10am - 7.30pm Friday: 10am - 6.30pm Saturday: 11am - 2.30pm Sunday: Closed
