The Environment. You couldn’t ask for a more beautiful studio to spend your time at. It has a clean + modern style with rustic finishes throughout. Hello front desk by Porter Barn Wood. But seriously though I didn’t want to leave and that is definitely a good vibe for a work out studio. Everything from the ceilings to the floors (which you’ll be spending mat time on) has a warm inviting feeling…lucky you if your class is in the exercise room with the window wall with so much natural lighting (seen previously.) I would sum up the environment as a lovely little oasis.

The Classes. First off they are offering FREE classes for their opening week so HURRY over and book NOW. Lots of slots are already booked up! A combination of ballet, yoga and Pilates these classes offer a well rounded work out for you. Class details as explained by Barre3: As dancers know, the ballet barre is a wonderful prop designed to support the body in both static and dynamic movement leading to long, lean muscles. Barre3 evolves the dancer’s workout by combining the grace of the ballet barre with the wisdom of yoga and the strength of Pilates. Barre3 classes are set to an upbeat soundtrack and follow a vigorous pace moving through a sequence of postures designed to shape and lift the entire body. Are you a first timer like me? Hear what Karie Johnson (owner) has to say, “What’s so great about barre3 is that you can really come at whatever stage of life your in. We can tailor it to best suit your needs. You can modify the poses if needed, or go “turbo” in some of the poses. It’s such a great workout, and tons of fun!”

The Childcare. YES! There is childcare and it’s the sweetest little space complete with everything from a teepee to interactive toys. Moms, this place was made with you in mind! A family friendly facility is always a plus in my book. The childcare fee is $5 and don’t forget to sign your kids up!

The People. Founder, Karie Johnson, is so kind with that type of magnetic personality. I automatically felt like we could be friends. And whats better than going to see a friend while getting your fit on?! I shared with her that I would be a newbie to barre3 studio this upcoming week  for their free classes (have you signed up yet…seriously) and she automatically put me at ease. If my instructors are anything like her than I’m in for a perfect first time experience as a barre3 client.
