As a sustainable approach to exercise, Smart Barre balances your body with strengthening and stretching so you can take as many classes per week as you see fit. A good goal is 3-5 times a week. Our ‘smart’ stretching not only increases flexibility but minimizes soreness from muscle fatigue.
Smart Barre classes are both strength and cardio based. A significant portion of the class focuses on legs and glutes, which are the biggest fat burners in your body, and you will quickly see and feel those inches dropping even without intense cardio. If you enjoy a good cardio workout, try incorporating our cardio based class Smart Bounce or for lighter cardio, Smart Burn.
Smart Barre incorporates strength and resistance training through the use of small hand weights in addition to your own body weight. During class, we strengthen virtually every part of the body, largely focusing on the upper body, legs, the gluteus muscles, your abdominals, and the entire core. Our primary focus is on proper form while fatiguing the muscle group being worked, followed by rejuvenating, ‘smart’ stretches that help tone and increase flexibility in the muscles.
Most clients see and feel results of long, lean and toned muscles in as little as 10 classes. This will vary depending on how often you attend class and 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.

However, if you have an injury or medical restrictions it is recommended to take a private session first to assess your fitness level and provide modifications as necessary.
