Barre is the increasingly popular ballet-inspired workout designed to sculpt and develop lean muscle mass while improving range of motion, balance and flexibility. More than likely, you have heard about hip barre studios such as pure barre, bar method, barre3, flybarre, and xtend barre. Many gyms, fitness clubs and studios also offer barre classes as an option for both members and group fitness enthusiasts.
