Hard AF?!

  • A pretty typical barre class, not that that’s a bad thing. It’s intense and a solid low impact workout.

  • Thighs were shaking and muscles were tired after class.

  • The class moves swiftly through moves, so don’t take too much time in between exercises.

  • Your muscles will burn and fatigue, but embrace it.

  • The routine is very choreographed and instructors stick to the script.
