Barrecore was founded in London in 2011 by celebrity trainer Niki Rein. Since then, we have grown into one of the most well-known fitness brands, with 12 studios across prime locations in the UK as well as a global online workout platform.

Here's the story of Barrecore, from Niki herself:

I have always been a very active person and enjoyed exercise. Since I was a child, I loved sports and started out playing football. After that, I moved on to weight training and aerobics, which I did during my college years, but nothing seemed quite right. I am very athletic and had a bit of a ‘bulky’ rather than a ‘lean physique’, so I was constantly looking for the perfect workout that would strengthen and challenge my body, without the dreaded bulk. I noticed that dancer’s bodies moved in a way mine couldn’t and I have always admired the strong slender bodies of dancers, so I began to develop and teach dance-inspired barre classes for private clients, and quickly realised that a combination of multiple workout techniques finally delivered the results I had always been looking for.

In 2009 I moved over to the UK, and created a class called ‘barrecore’ for some of my private training clients. The response was overwhelming. One class a week turned into ten, without even advertising, in what seemed like no time at all. It became apparent that I needed a larger studio so we opened the Chelsea studio in 2011 - the first boutique barre fitness studio in the UK.

Since then, Barrecore has grown into one of the UK’s most well known fitness brands, with 12 thriving studios across prime locations in the UK, as well as online workouts in the form of Live Classes and On Demand Classes that are taught to clients all around the world!

We truly pride ourselves on the quality of our classes and the expertise of our instructors. We have nearly 100 incredibly well trained and knowledgeable teachers, and they have all undergone a rigorous selection process and 200 hours of training.

Barrecore is about enjoying yourself in a friendly, buzzing environment where you'll be welcomed by name as soon as we get to know you. I am very proud of our warm and friendly studios, and that we transform bodies rapidly!

I hope to see you in the studio soon!
