We’re no stranger to the bar. Barre workouts, on the other hand, need more of a breakdown. This celebrity-loved low-impact workout delivers mega results for even the least graceful when incorporated into your workout routine 2-3 times each week. Check out our favorite barre classes in our second sbe Summer Slim Down installment. 


Lift, tone, burn and let it go. This 55-minute full-body workout focuses on the hips, thighs, seat, abs and arms — aka everyone’s trouble spots. The best part? You follow each exercise up with a stretch for muscles that are lean and mean with none of the bulk.



What happens when a ballet dancer/Pilates Instructor and brand developer get married? They develop a game-changing workout and call it Pop Physique! This modern twist on traditional barre workouts incorporates the principles of dance to sculpt long, lean lines and tight, compact muscles. Oh yeah, did we mention celebs like Mindy Kaling and the Haim ladies are obsessed too?



Most people are familiar with FlyWheel’s hyper-competiive, road-bike spin classes but their barre class counterpart might be their best workout yet. Choose between 45 or 60 minute high-rep, low-weight sculpting barre classes or the 60 minute SPORT class which incorporates heavier weights and cardio blasts to reshape and re-sculpt your body in no time.
