 How do you feel your body has changed from barre classes? Definitely my body is limber. There is an overall sculpting of the body and that does not ever stop. I don’t feel I have plateaued as I have in the past with other forms of workout. The weekly change to the routine is tough at first, but super exciting over all. I do not feel too sore after the work out and it leaves me with more energy.

What is your favorite part of coming to Barre Centric classes? The instructors are super cool and have great energy. They correct your form and are very encouraging. Happy energy everywhere.

Advice for anyone who is thinking about trying their first barre class? The more you do, the better you get. It becomes addicting after a while. But, try to stay regular and attend more classes than fewer.

How do you feel your body has changed from barre classes?
I started barre for two reasons. (1) I had a horrific knee injury that has limited the type of physical activity I can do. Barre was low impact but packed a big punch of working all of my muscles to keep me in shape. Barre has continued to build the strength in my injured leg and has made a difference. It’s helped me with my range of motion. Barre has been a great therapy for me. (2) I love how barre makes you lean and stay in great shape. I can definitely see the difference in the fit in my pants. Long and lean all the way!! It has really chiseled my arms and flattened my tummy.

What is your favorite part of coming to Barre Centric classes?
My favorite part of class is the “community” that we have at Barre Centric. Everyone is talkative and pleasant. It’s nice to know I can go into barre and feel comfortable working out. No judgements…only support. I also love the availability of class hours. I’m big on going first thing in the morning. It energizes me for the rest of the day.

Advice for anyone who is thinking about trying their first barre class?
Be open! This is a supportive community. It’s a practice and with a practice, you’ll constantly learn and strive to do better. One day you may be on and the other you may be tired and can’t plié as low as the day before. Keep your head high and keep pushing. Everyone is there to help:)

How do you feel your body has changed from Barre Centric classes?
I feel so much stronger and aware of my muscles. My entire body is more tone. It may sound funny, but I even feel a bit taller. I continually receive compliments about how much more sharply my legs have become.

What is your favorite part about coming to Barre Centric classes?
How good I feel. Even though the exercises are sometimes difficult, it feels so good to get better and better at completing the routine. Of course, just as it gets easier, you guys switch things up, which furthers the challenge.

Advice for anyone thinking about trying their first barre class?
Start now! I wish I started this years ago. It just feels so good and is worth every penny!

How do you feel your body has changed from Barre Centric classes?
I noticed a change almost instantly, especially in my legs. My whole body has become more toned and I definitely feel like I’ve lost inches. I’m super proud of my arm muscles because I’ve never had any before.

What is your favorite part about coming to Barre Centric classes?
I love the quick pace of each class. Just when you think you can’t possibly do one more pulse, they move onto the next move. It’s a total body workout and the instructors make you feel like you have your own personal trainer. And seeing the same friendly faces every week is an added bonus.

Advice for anyone thinking about trying their first barre class?
Just come! Don’t be intimidated, if you’ve never done Barre before. The instructors are so helpful and will answer any questions you may have. It’s so much fun! Soon you’ll be a Barre addict like the rest of us!

How do you feel your body has changed from Barre Centric classes?
Everything on my body feels tighter! My arms feel more defined, my thighs and waist feel slimmer and my seat feels more plump; isn’t that what every girl wants?!

What is your favorite part about coming to Barre Centric classes?
I can always count on a great workout. I was getting so bored with just going to the gym and I was running out of ideas for workouts. At Barre Centric, I don’t get bored, I don’t have to come up with exercises and there aren’t any opportunities to slack off. The instructors are amazing and the environment is one that I really enjoy being a part of.

Advice for anyone thinking about trying their first barre class?
Don’t be nervous! It’s definitely scary to try something new, but put yourself out there and try it. Even with a dance background, I was nervous to try barre. But it is really the best thing I’ve done for myself in a while. My motivation is back and for the first time in a very long time I enjoy working out. Barre is the best part of my day!

Barre Centric Mother-Daughter Duos

Thanks to all the mothers out there who raise the barre on a daily basis! We wanted to feature a few of our FAVORITE mother-daughter duos (and 1 trio!) who love to come to barre together!

“My favorite part of working out with my mom at the barre is having someone there to motivate me. We are both sweating for my wedding in October!” -Melissa
“My Favorite part of working out together is spending the hour together doing something that benefits both of us and that both of us enjoy.” – Kelly

“What inspires me most about my mom is her continuous love and support for her family. She is an amazing role model for both my sister and me!”- Melissa
“What inspires me about Melissa – Independence, energy, support and encouragement”- Kelly

Jones Family Picture (2)Carrie, Candace, Jen

“I think the best part of mother-daughter barre classes is that it gives us a healthy and fun activity to do together. We love sending time at the Barre on Saturday mornings and then trying new lunch places in Buffalo afterwards. The routine gives us dedicated time to reconnect, be active and get the weekend started off right. We have come to believe that a family that shakes together, stays together :)”- Jen

FullSizeRender (2)Lisa & Nicole

“We’ve tried other forms of exercise and prefer Barre Centric for the balance, flexibility, strengthening and toning techniques offered by the knowledgeable instructors.  We find the classes to be a great way to de-stress after a long day at the office.”- Lisa
“My mom caught on fast! She’s a quick learner and keeps up with the best of us. We both think it’s equally as hard, but just as fun to do it together! We’ve tried many other classes together and barre is definitely the best! Plus- She’s always sure to save me a mat when I’m running late :)”- Nicole

“Nicole inspires me with her strong desire and determination to succeed.  She is a hard work young woman who puts all she has into everything she does.”- Lisa
“My mom works really hard in all areas of her life.  She manages so many aspects of the family business while paying attention to life’s details that most of us would miss. She never misses a birthday or holiday for any of her family, including all of her nieces and nephews.  She even drives from the south towns so we can exercise together each week.  Her motivation is barre none and she always does it with a smile. I’m inspired by her ability to handle any situation with poise and courage no matter what it takes. Love you mom!”- Nicole
