In the spirit of Chrismas, we've devised a Merry Christmas Alpha-Barre, outlining everything Barrecore and what you can expect in our classes!

M - MAGIC NUMBER - Is four! Come to class 4 times a week to truly optimise results and notice a positive change in your body! Upping class from 3 to 4 times a week has been proven to dramatically increase results by 50%, positively impacting your physical and mental health, improving sleep quality, reducing stress and increasing your overall sense of well-being. Book your favourite class here.

E - ECCENTRIC CONTRACTIONS - This is where your muscles actively lengthen whilst engaging like when you return to standing from a squat position. We use a lot of bodyweight resistance in class as well as working with props, which are designed to isolate work to different muscle groups as we perform controlled movements, resisting gravity to challenge the muscles further! More info here!

R - RECOVERY - It’s important to take time to allow your body to recover after class but we also encourage you to get back to the barre to keep your body mobile and allow you to see the best results. If you're looking for something slightly less intense between classes, we recommend our BarreRESTORE class which will help to stretch and reduce muscular tension in the body.

R - RETAIL ETHOS - We bring you the most exciting and innovative wellness products, tried and tested by our team to ensure only the highest quality products make it onto our retail shelves. Our nutritious snacks and refreshments are all paleo and curated by our founder and CEO Niki Rein, a certified nutritionist, so you can be sure every product has had the Barrecore seal of approval. Let's not forget the stylish activewear and high-quality supplements! For the perfect Christmas gift, Our Gift Cards come beautifully presented in a luxury sleeve complete with a gift bag. Shop here.

Y - YEAR-ROUND FITNESS - Fitness is for life (and not just for Christmas), which is why at Barrecore we want to support you to create a fitness routine that you can enjoy and fully commit to! Each class is different, and with eight different Barrecore formats to choose from you'll never get bored! We also have our BarrePRENATAL specialty class for mums-to-be and Private Barre Sessions for those in search of focused results. Find out more about about each format and which one is right for you here.

C - COMMUNITY - We will always welcome you with a smile and greet you by name as soon as you get to know you, as we strive to create a friendly supportive community in all of our studios! Remember to have fun in class with your fellow barre enthusiasts, as strengthening mental wellbeing is just as important as strengthening your glutes! Learn how the community started here.

H - HIGH INTENSITY - Barrecore is about high-intensity but low impact, building strength and tone in an efficient and effective way so you can get the most out of every class. Expect a hard-core workout suitable for all body types but without putting strain on your joints! Choose your class here.

R - RANGE OF MOTION - One of the surprising things about the Barrecore method when you first start out is how small the movements are which we perform in class, as bigger doesn’t necessarily mean better when it comes to barre. We’re all about small controlled movements, working within a range that suits your body and doesn’t compromise your technique to optimise results! Read about the class overview here.

I - ISOMETRIC CONTRACTIONS - This type of contraction is spoken about a fair amount in class and it’s where the length of the muscle and the angle of the joint doesn’t change. Holding a plank is a perfect example and remember, there is so much strength in stillness.

S - SHAKE - When you hear our instructors saying “embrace the shake” it’s because our classes are designed to work specific muscle groups to a point of intensity where the muscles start to burn and shake, and this is where the change happens! So don’t worry about the wobble as this means you’re working the right groups of muscles in the right way!

T - TEACHERS - Our teachers go through a rigorous audition process and are trained for over 200-hours, not only in the Barrecore method but in anatomy too, so they are truly experts in their field! This means they can offer modifications for those working with injuries or pre and post natal clients as well as giving options to challenge you further. Each class is unique to our teacher’s individual style, so no two classes are the same, meaning you will never get bored! Get to know our teachers here.

M - MEMBERSHIPS - We have 4 different memberships available ranging from once-a-week to unlimited classes, allowing you to create healthy habits which suit your lifestyle and routine. Our front of house team will be more than happy to speak you through each option in more detail. Become a member here.

A - ACADEMY - Having brought the Barre revolution to the UK in 2011, Barrecore is hands-down the authority on Barre fitness. Our academy training course has been expertly designed to teach you the important technical aspects of delivering an exceptional barre class and the importance of connecting with clients and investing in their well-being, allowing you to thrive in this industry! Learn more here.

S - SUPPLEMENTS - We sell a range of high-quality supplements in studio, which can support the work you do in class to optimise your results. "They are an incredibly powerful tool for achieving change in body composition as well as increasing energy and mental productivity" - Niki Rein, Barrecore founder and CEO.
