How do you feel your body has changed from barre classes? 
 I feel much stronger and healthier as a result of going to barre class, specifically in my core and seat area. Before joining Barre Centric I used to mainly do cardio workouts, so what I love about barre class is that it targets the sections of my body I want to improve and wouldn’t have worked out otherwise. It also helps that now I’m not afraid to put on my skinny jeans or clothes I may have avoided before!
What is your favorite part of coming to Barre Centric classes? 
My favorite part of coming to class is how much fun I have during class and the burn I feel after class. During class its fun to try new moves each week and also see if I get better at some of the similar moves. After class I feel not only physically stronger, but mentally I leave feeling energetic, yet calm.
Advice for anyone who is thinking about trying their first barre class?
My advice to someone thinking about trying their first barre class is don’t be intimidated! I don’t have a dance or yoga background so wasn’t sure if I was going to be able to do some of the moves or hold certain positions, but after a week or two I got the hang of it and really started to get into it. Now it’s fun to challenge myself and try to sweat, especially during the leg movements when my legs are shaking!

Since I started going to Barre I feel more in tune with my body. I feel more balanced and strong in my body and in my mind.
What is your favorite part of coming to Barre Centric classes? 
Coming to a Barre Centric class is such a treat for me. My favorite part is to see what “New” muscles I am going to discover that day. Depending on how the workouts are designed different muscles are targeted which is amazing.

Barre classes are amazing for anyone who wants to build a strong and flexible body. As a woman I enjoy the elegance of this type of movement. So, if you want to be strong and at the same time sexy and elegant you should try Barre

Knowing it is going to be hard work and coming anyway, the instructors make me feel welcome and encourage me to work to my full potential even when I might not be feeling strong that day, and the awesome classmates that make it fun!
Advice for anyone who is thinking about trying their first barre class?
Barre Centric instructors and clients are very supportive and nonjudgmental. It was my biggest fear coming to class- that I was bigger than I wanted to be and out of shape. No one judged me. They welcomed me and were glad to have me. That helped a lot.

How do you feel your body has changed from barre classes? Since I have began taking barre regularly I have definitely noticed the most change in my thighs and arms, they are becoming more defined! What’s great about Barre Centric is the focus they put on each part of the body. Not only does it target the parts of the body we all want to be longer and more lean, the instructors change the exercises each week to target other muscles connected to the arms, thighs, and seat. I also feel that it has improved my posture overall.
What is your favorite part of coming to Barre Centric classes?The best part of coming to Barre Centric classes is definitely the positive and upbeat atmosphere of both the instructors and the other people in class. With the everyday hustle and bustle of life, or just a stressful day in general its nice to have somewhere to look forward to going to. Even when I am feeling tired or lazy or I just plain don’t feel like working out, going to Barre puts me in a better mood and I am always happy that I did when I leave! I love to be able to have fun while working out, and getting a better body shape at the same time!
Advice for anyone who is thinking about trying their first barre class? For anyone who is thinking about trying their first barre class, I would say definitely to try it, you wont be disappointed! This is such a welcoming studio, they know your name even after just taking one class! Each class you take you learn more and more, and you improve as you go. The instructors are always so helpful, they even help adjust you to make sure you are getting the most out of each exercise. Trying something new is always a little nerve wrecking at first, but you always feel comfortable here! (I am not sure if you will be doing this again this summer, but, if you are you can also add this : Barre Centric also offers classes over the summer down at canalside (which was actually my first class 🙂 ) so that gives you an opportunity to see what they are all about, and you will be hooked!
