Three reasons why Ballet Barre could be good for you

Form & Technique

Notice benefits like improved muscle definition, greater flexibility, better posture and an ability to move to the beat of the music.

Athleticism

We place an emphasis on slower, isometric movements fused with cardio intervals to create a type of muscle confusion (typical in barre), resulting in a strong physique.

Escape in a charming studio

Our Ballet Barre style classes are hosted in our very own MindBody studio, a space that represents escapism in its finest form.

“I don’t feel intimidated like I normally would have as I’ve only been to women's gyms in the past, I think it’s set up really well. I started with a Personal Trainer to keep me on track and she was great. I’m also loving the barre classes, my muscles kill for the next few days!”

FAQ

What is Ballet Barre?

Barre is a fusion of dance, flex and strength training, and those that take our Barre classes regularly report benefits like improved muscle definition, greater flexibility and improved posture. Fitness Playground Barre classes are athletic, meaning we work around a set of 2-3 cardio intervals mixed with slow isometric movements. This creates a type of muscle confusion that builds leaner core muscles, arms, thighs and glutes, all the while slowing down that racing brain for a deeper mind & body connection.

What should I expect in a Barre class?

When you arrive at your Barre class, our instructors will be waiting to greet you. Their introduction will be focused on explaining the class format, what equipment you’ll be using (if any), and will ask if you are working with any injuries or restrictions. Class formats can be tailored to wherever you’re at in your fitness journey, no one is too new or too advanced. You’ll meet an array of instructors, all bringing a unique style to their Barre classes. We do ask that you please arrive five minutes early to your class so your instructor can start on time.

What do I bring to my Barre class?

We provide blocks, hand weights & mats in our studios. All that we ask is that you please bring a towel, water bottle (preferably not plastic as we’re not big on that) and a mat if you’d like to use your own. We’ll also provide the pretty studios and awesome line-up of instructors! We heavily enforce the towel policy (no towel, no play, no gym today).

What other facilities are available?

Along with our serene MindBody studio, you’ll have full access to our gym facilities. These include our boutique bathrooms that are fitted out with showers, lockers, hair dryers, hair straighteners & botanical soaps.

Can I bring someone?

Of course! When we reach out to book you in, don’t be afraid to tell us who you’d like to bring along to your first Barre class.
