Flybarre

Flybarre

I’ve been taking Flybarre classes since I lived in the DC area, when I followed a couple of teachers from a small studio to the noted chain. Flybarre is a more athletic approach to barre than some competitiors, likely because it’s meant to complement their […]

Pure Barre Platform

Pure Barre Platform

As you know from reading my blog, I froze my Classpass account for the past month to do the new client special at Pure Barre NYC. I’m well-seasoned in barre and Pure Barre specifically, but I hadn’t had a change to try their cardio offering, Pure […]

Pop Physique

The Bar Method

Physique 57

Physique 57

I really don’t have enough great things to say about Physique 57. I just moved here and have been searching for a barre class that offers a full-body workout and kicks my ass.

Solace – BARRE BREAK

Solace – BARRE BREAK

I’d been eyeing Solace for a while – it’s a beautiful, high-end crossfit studio that also offers HIIT, barre, and yoga classes.

BFX Studio – Stoked C3BarreMAX

BFX Studio – Stoked C3BarreMAX

I’ve been eyeing this class on Classpass for a while and it’s one of the ones that fills up instantly–possibly because it sounds like some sort of P90X spinoff, possibly because it’s that good.
