FAQ's About Barre Class

What is Barre and what results can I expect?

Barre workouts focus on strengthening, stretching and aligning major muscle groups as well as the stabilizing muscles, which are generally not engaged with mainstream workouts and traditional weight training. This low-impact workout can be done by women of all ages and fitness levels, without any dance experience at all. Results to expect are an increase in balance, functional strength, physical grace, stamina, and significant changes in physique. A challenging 60-minute total body Barre workout will tone, tighten, sculpt, and burn fat. It never gets easier... you just get better. Utilizes props including the ballet barre, light weights, and a ball. Transform your body!

Can I take these classes if I am a beginner or have not exercised in a long time?

No dance experience is required to enjoy these beautiful class formats. All of our classes are low-impact and our instructors offer modifications. You can do this class even if you claim to be uncoordinated and it's appropriate for teens and for women into their 70's.

When can I expect to notice results?

Most clients see and feel results in as little as 10 classes. This will vary depending on how often you attend class, your lifestyle, and nutrition. Our technique of concentrated muscle fatigue followed by focused stretching maximizes your efforts and helps the body’s system work together in a strong, powerful way. Our instructors are always happy to speak with you about your goals and help you to achieve them in a healthy, balanced manner.

What is the cancellation policy?

If you should need to cancel a class reservation, please do so before the 1-hour window of class. At this time, the late cancellation fee is only assessed for the early morning classes (5:30am or 6:15am). If you need to cancel your reservation for the first class of the morning, the late cancellation policy requires that you cancel by 8PM the prior evening to avoid the $5 cancellation fee. Cancellations should be done online.

What do I need for class?

For Barre class you will need grip socks and water. We have both available for purchase in the studio. All of the props used in each of our class formats are provided for you in the studio.

Can I drop in for a class, or do I need a reservation?

We recommend making a reservation for class online since classes may fill to capacity. If a class shows full online, clients who arrive at the studio without a reservation will be admitted on a first come first serve basis.

How many classes shoud I take per week?

As a sustainable approach to exercise, a good goal is 3-6 times a week. Variety produces the greatest results, so we do recommend that you take a variety of all of our Barre class formats. 

What are the age limitations for Barre classes?

Young ladies age 12 and up are welcome to our Barre classes.  Our age range of clients is broad.  We have clients into their late 70's who are loving the classes and experiencing life altering results.  

Is there childcare available?

Children under the age of 12 must be supervised by an adult if they are going to wait in the lobby during class. There is a babysitter available for hire at The Workout Barre for the weekday morning classes during the summer. Arrangements must be made between the parent and babysitter 24 hours before class.

How important is my diet?

Diet is a critical component of sustainable health and weight control. Even the most consistent exercise regimen can easily be sabotaged by poor food choices. Moreover, the combination of exercise and proper eating is 450% move effective than exercise alone at keeping off those unwanted pounds.

Why are grip socks requried during Barre class?

Stability, balance, and total body alignment are best achieved with barefoot training. Grip socks provide stability, control, and ultimately a safer foundation for balance when exercising on our smooth surface. Grip socks also provide your feet with sanitary protection. Since regular socks are slippery on our studio floors, we do not allow them. Grip socks can be purchased at The Workout Barre Fitness and Dance. 

What is the dress code?

Please wear cropped or long pants that allow you to move easily. Fitted yoga pants or leggings are recommended so you and your instructor can observe your form and alignment, to provide correction when necessary. We also recommend a fitted top for the same reasons. We ask that you don't wear shorts or tops that expose the midriff.

You must wear grip socks. For sanitary reasons, shoes or bare feet are not allowed in the Barre studio. Grip socks are available in the studio starting at $14.99.

What is the late arrival policy?

First time visitors must arrive 15 minutes before your first class. 

For your safety and for the consideration of the instructor and other clients, we reserve the right to not allow late entry into any class in progress.  For this reason, we ask that clients arrive in enough time to be set up in class 5 minutes before class start time. 

If you are stuck in traffic, or running late, please call us.  We can't guarantee that you will be able to enter late, but we always do our best to accommodate unforeseen circumstances when possible.

Testimonials

"Excellent workouts, precise and difficult, but very enjoyable! My time at The Workout Barre is a highlight of my day! I've tried the Barre workouts and Power Pilates, and they are distinct enough to make real changes in my body. I've only been a member for a month, but see significant changes in my body and strength... Classes are small to medium-sized, so instructors have the ability to correct and encourage. Very impressed! Highly recommended."
