Do I need to be fit and have a ballet background to take class?

  • First and foremost, this workout is for all shapes and sizes and all fitness levels and backgrounds. Our teachers will be there to walk you through the various routines and will always provide modifications along the way. We encourage you to give the class at least three attempts before deciding it’s not right for you.
  • We also offer private and small group options for those who would like some additional training. Please email us at barrevastudio@gmail.com if you are interested!

 

What do I wear?

  • Dress comfortably! Most clients prefer yoga pants with a tank top or tee shirt. Socks (with grips on the bottom) are optional!

 

What does the workout entail?

  • Each class is one hour, and is a full-body workout involving low-impact exercises.  The sequence  includes a warm-up with varieties of planks, push-ups and free-weights that works the upper body, and then moves onto isometric leg and seat work, either at the barre or on the floor.  The last portion focuses on abdominals.  There are periods of stretching throughout the duration of the class to ensure the lenthening of the muscles being targeted.

 

When will I see the results and how often should I come to class?

  • Everyone is different, but we can say that most students begin to see results after attending 8-10 classes. We recommend coming to class 3-4 times per week to see the most significant results. Mental benefits will come after the first few classes.

 

How many calories can I burn in a barre class?

  •  The amount of calories burned will depend on a number of individual factors (height, weight, age, metabolism), but typically range from 300 – 600 calories in a one hour class.  Additionally, the calorie burn lasts hours after the class is over, due to the intense muscle work.

 

What is your cancellation policy?

  • Please cancel class at least 2 hours before the start of class to allow room for the next person off the waitlist. ** For 6 a.m. classes, we ask that you cancel by 10 p.m. the night before.
  • A cancellation less than 2 hours prior to the start of class  or after 10 p.m. the night before a 6 AM class will result in a forfeiture of the class.  A no-show will result in forfeiture of the class and be charged $5.
  • **Unlimited Contracts holders will be charged $5 if you cancel within the hour before class and $10 if you are a no-show.

 

What happens if I’m late?

  • You will not be permitted to class after 10min from the start of class. This is for your own safety!
