Barre has landed with a beautiful burn

Members: Free. Non-members opening offer: $10 per class

Beautiful does not mean weak. Ballet dancers are some of the world’s strongest athletes, their grace
and elegance shaped by focused, intense training.

LES MILLS BARRE™ is a modern expression of classic balletic training; a 30 minute workout designed to shape and tone the muscles, build core strength, and allow you to escape the everyday.

If you’ve ever trained for ballet, or are simply seeking a new kind of self-expression, you will love LES MILLS BARRE. Without the traditional bar to support you, the muscles supporting your body’s stability and strength become the focus.

It may look beautiful, but don’t underestimate the burn.

What to expect in class

LES MILLS BARRE™ is a 30 minute ballet inspired style of training that works to shape and tone your whole body. We begin with a warm-up, followed by a sequence of cardio-esque training, building to a cardio peak. We then move into ballet strength, using light weights, and finish with targeted balletic conditioning to complete your full- body training.

What should I wear to class?

Comfortable clothing that you can move in – tights or capris allow easy range of movement. You will also
need socks as you will be removing your shoes.

What should I bring?

All the equipment necessary (small free weights) will be provided but it’s a good idea to bring a water bottle
and a small sweat towel.

I’ve never done a barre class before. Does that matter?

Not at all. Simply follow your instructor, as they will show you all of the appropriate options. It pays to commit to three or four classes from the start to feel comfortable with all the moves.

How often should I do a LES MILLS BARRE class?

While you’ll feel real benefits from coming to class just once a week, attending two to three classes per week
will really help you improve.

I’m pregnant. Can I still do LES MILLS BARRE?

This type of training can help maintain core control and muscle balance for those who are pregnant. Safety is our number one priority, so we recommend talking with your doctor or midwife, they will advise you appropriately as they have the best knowledge of your medical history. Also, chat to your class instructor beforehand to let them know you’re pregnant. They’ll suggest some modifications for you throughout the class.
