I was provided with a trial class pass to Barre Fitness to help facilitate this post. All opinions below are my own.
I firmly believe that if you want things in your life to change, you have to change things in your life. This could be health goals or just getting out of your comfort zone to try something new. My daughter has been a ballet dancer for the past 8 years so I was very familiar with what a great workout it is. I always wanted to try a barre class but I had let my excuses get in the way and the fear of stepping out of my comfort zone talk me out of it. You can follow my Instagram for my stories on attending the classes. I really hope everyone embraces this year’s Self-Care September and pushes past your excuses to try something that you have always wanted to do.
Barre classes can be taken by anyone 15 years and older. They welcome all fitness levels but Barre Classic or Barre Fitness are best suited for newcomers. They currently have a special ‘2 weeks for $40’ for new clients. With any group fitness class you want to give yourself time to find parking, get organized and get a spot in class. It is recommended that you arrive 15 minutes early. The classes are done wearing socks not shoes so feel free to leave the runners at home. Class attire would include comfortable, breathable workout clothes. It is easier for the instructor to see the form and alignment if clothing is tight fitting. Phones are not permitted in the studio so you can be fully present in the exercises. Barre Fitness is also a fragrance free environment so while deodorant is welcome, strong perfumes and lotions are not.
Barre Fitness has a 12 week Back to Barre Challenge. If you complete 36 classes in 12 weeks you will be entered to win weekly prizes and access to exclusive specialty workshops, enjoy health and wellness seminars, exclusive member discounts from community partners and more! Grand prize includes one month free of Barre Fitness classes.
One lucky winner will receive a 10 Class Card to the Barre Fitness South Surrey location. The fantastic thing about this offer is that it is valid for 6 moths after your first class so you do not feel pressure to jump right into completing 10 classes in a rush if you do not choose.
