Oh, how I love Xtend Barre! All around the country - and the world - barre classes are insanely popular. But, Xtend Barre is at the top of the list. Xtend Barre is the only PMA (Pilates Method Alliance) recognized program featuring Pilates Mat certified instructors who are required to take Continuing Education courses EVERY year. So, what does this mean for you? It means inspired instructors who take pride in providing you with fun and challenging classes with a focus on form. Here's a great review on barre class!
"Ballet (Barre) inspired classes out there are all designed for one purpose: to help you achieve a slim, strong, sculpted dancer's body. The celeb fan base is huge: Sofia Vergara, Drew Barrymore, Madonna, Anna Paquin, Kelly Ripa...just to name a few. Expect a lot of reps of small, pulsing movements (we're talking lifting and lowering limbs a mere inch or two), targeting the muscles in your core and lower body (many classes also hit your top half), with big emphasis on form and alignment. They sometimes throw in a bevy of other props, too, like yoga straps, exercise balls and hand weights. In any case, you will hurt after the first few classes, but you'll also probably see some pretty major results in short order." - Huffington Post Review
