3 reasons you’ll love our Barre classes

STRENGTH

The series of slower, isometric movements fused with cardio intervals create a type of “muscle confusion” (typical in Barre) that results in improved total-body strength.

FORM

You’ll notice benefits like improved muscle definition, balance, posture and flexibility, all from working on your form and technique while you move to the beat of the music.

FUN

Get swept away by the music while getting a serious strength workout in our beautiful Barre studios, spaces in which you can escape from life’s busyness while working on your fitness.

OUR FEATURED
CLASSES

BARRE FOUNDATIONS

Your classic Ballet Barre workout. The dance- and pilates-style moves sculpt your whole body while you move to the music. Small pulses, tiny tucks and micro movements define your muscles while burning a heap of calories. You’ll use light weights and bands to challenge your athleticism, improve your core strength and improve your balance. No experience needed.

BARRE HIIT

Barre with bonus cardio. Activate your muscles with a powerful series that combines the precision of Barre with high-intensity cardio bursts. Cardio intervals are repeated between the more traditional Barre workouts for each targeted muscle group. You’ll use lighter weights, sliders and creative body-weight exercises and take very little rest between sets.

Barre Strong

This is Barre plus extra strength work. Barre Strong is an empowering program designed to push you to maximum effort for fast results. Moving to the beat of the music, you’ll build power in every part of your body. It’s a longer (60-minute) session that entails small rhythmic movements, high repetitions, heavier weights and individual booty-toning sequences.

SAM

“I love the energy and focus of the movements in Fitness Playground’s barre classes, but the main thing that that keeps me coming every week is the total-body workout – a mesh of pilates, yoga and ballet.”

Augusto

“​​Barre is one of my favourite classes at Fitness Playground. It’s amazing how versatile a workout a barre class can be. You can work on your strength and flexibility while feeling every inch of your muscles and skin vibrating with the beats of music. All the barre teachers are so energetic and inspiring.”

Violet

"I love FP's Barre classes. They're never dull because you're always moving to the beat of the music. And switching it up from working arms, to legs and core. Doing these classes regularly has given me so much strength – I love the lean muscle tone I get from barre."

ALICE

“Professional, experienced and positive personal training staff. The facility is well maintained and the services offered cater for all ages and fitness levels. All staff are focussed on providing the best possible experience tailored to suit each individual.”

FAQs

What is Barre?

Barre is a fusion of ballet-style dance, pilates and strength training. People who regularly take our Barre classes report improved muscle definition, flexibility, balance and posture. Fitness Playground’s Barre classes are athletic in that we work around sets of two to three cardio intervals mixed with slow isometric movements. This creates a type of “muscle confusion” that builds lean core muscles, arms, thighs and glutes, all while slowing your racing brain so you can achieve a deeper mind and body connection.

What should I expect in a Barre class?

Your instructor’s intro will be focused on explaining the class format, what equipment you’ll be using, and they’ll ask if you have any injuries or restrictions that require modifications. Class formats can be tailored to wherever you’re at in your fitness journey – no one is too new or too advanced. Our array of instructors each bring a unique style to their Barre classes. We ask that you arrive about five minutes before your class starts so the instructor can get the class started on time.

What do I bring to my Barre class?

We provide hand weights, bands, blocks, mats and more. All you need to bring is a towel and a water bottle (preferably not disposable as we’re not big on that). The towel policy is a big one for us (no towel, no play). You can BYO mat if you want to use your own. We’ll also provide the pretty studios and awesome line-up of instructors!

What other facilities are available?

Along with our serene Barre studios, 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 and botanical soaps.

Can I bring someone?

Of course! When we reach out to book you in, feel free to let us know who you’d like to bring along to your Barre class.
