VIDEO ON DEMAND FAQ

Below you will find answers to some of the most commons questions we get asked about our Videos On Demand. If something isn't covered, please get in touch - we always love hearing from you!

We also have a In-Studio FAQ page for all things Barrecore, and a Live Streamed Classes FAQ page.

What Are Barrecore Video On Demand Workouts?

Video On Demand workouts are pre-recorded in our studios, with different teachers, teaching our different types of barre-related classes, and at different lengths. These are then loaded into our Video On Demand library. This means that you can pick the type and length of workout you would like to do - and do it at a time that suits you.

Our Video On Demand workouts are the same as our studio classes, with some minor adaptations to make sure that they can be easily done from home without special equipment (you probably don't have a barre mounted in your living room, do you?). Don't worry, the classes are still as effective as long as you push yourself and keep fine-tuning your technique.

If you're thinking about making a major shift when it comes to your fitness and wellness, we suggest that you also take a look at our Online Transform Programs (1,3 or 6 months). The program takes place purely online and includes weekly private sessions with one of our expert teachers who will personalize a workout regimen that suits your individual goals, and guide you and help keep you on track. You can also book Live Streamed Private Sessions separately.


I'm New To Barrecore. Where Do I Start?

Follow the links to learn more about our famous Barrecore Method, and what people say about us. You can also read some general FAQ's and get more pointers for your very first class.

For your very first class we recommend our BarreFORM class as it is delivered at a slightly slower pace, and more cues for correct technique (the better your technique, the faster your results).

We are all about the technique to make sure you work out safely as well as effectively. If you're completely new, we recommend looking into our Online Transform Programs or Live Streamed Private Sessions, as the individual attention from one of our expert teachers will help you nail our technique and get the most out of your future classes, even if you're doing them from home.


How Are Video On Demand Workouts Different From Our Live Streamed Classes?

Video On Demand Classes have been pre-recorded, whereas Live Streamed classes are real-time classes live streamed straight to you.

Video On Demand workouts gives you full freedom to choose when and how you want to work out, whereas Live Streamed Classes give you an entirely unique class each time, allows you to connect with our teachers and community. The element of booking a class may also help you stick to your workout commitment.


Can I Try A Class Before I Commit?

Yes! Right now we have an introductory offer that gives you a whole month for free when you sign up to the Membership! Simply sign up, and off you go.


Do I Need Any Experience To Join These Classes?

Not at all! Our Barrecore Method is low impact, and safe for all fitness levels. Simply push yourself to your own limit!

If you're brand new we do however recommend that you start with our BarreFORM class, to get used to our technique and get the most out of your first class, as well as future classes. Read more about our different barre-related classes.

Do I Need Any Equipment?

All our classes can be done without any equipment at all - you'll still get a great burn as we work with small movements, a lot of repetitions and body resistance. In the instances that we do use equipment in class, a substitute can easily be found in your home. These can come in handy;
- Mat / carpeted floor
- Barre / chair / table / wall
- Pair of 500g-1.5kg max weights / tinned food / water bottles
- Soft ball / rolled-up towel / cushion
- Yoga block / thick book
- Hard karate strap / bathrobe belt / dressing gown tie
- Long resistance band / can be replaced with heavier weights
- Looped resistance band / can be replaced with lighter weights


What Do I Wear?

As with our studio classes, we recommend wearing fitted clothing to properly see and feel your technique. Leggings and a vest or t-shirt are perfect. Leggings with zips might prove uncomfortable during floor work, so we recommend leggings without them. A low impact sports bra should provide adequate support as all our classes are low-impact.

Trainers restrict your range of movement and since you'll spend a lot of time moving through your feet with Barrecore, we instead wear grippy socks. Grippy socks also help you hold each position that bit longer without slipping. As soon as you slip, you have to reset and you lose that crucial burn that Barrecore is all about. Depending on your mat at home, you might be able to get away with just being barefoot.


How Long Are The Classes?

The length of our On Demand workouts range from 5 minutes to a full hour. Use the filters to find the length you're looking for. Our shorter workouts usually focus on a specific part of the body and can either be taken on their own as a quick burst or combined together with other shorter workouts for a full-body workout.


How Much Do The Classes Cost?

We want everyone to be able to experience our Video On Demand workouts so your whole first month is complimentary! Simply sign up, and the free month is automatically applied.

After your first class, you join our rolling monthly membership which gives you unlimited access to all our videos for £25/month.

How Do I Access Video On Demand Workouts?

You can access these workout videos anytime, and from any device - mobile phone, iPad or computer. You can also screenshare from your device to a TV. The larger the screen, the better you will see our teacher’s instructions.

Make sure to place yourself and the screen in a way that you can see the screen when you’re both standing up and laying down. Also make sure you can see your whole body on the screen if you want to use it as a mirror.

Simply head over to our Video On Demand Library and filter if you're looking for a particular teacher, length or format. Then select a video, sign in, and you're on!


What About Music?

Some of our Video On Demand workouts come with music, while some don't. If you choose a workout without music, you can either enjoy the silence, play any kind of music your end, or play one of our curated Spotify playlists where we have selected music with the right tempo.
