Get great results! Barre (or bar) classes are all the rage now – you see them everywhere, under lots of different names. That’s because they work so well. The barre is a tool that allows you to do things you can’t do any other way, working muscles you never knew existed. It’s like adding a fourth dimension to your workout – which will also include weights and calisthenics. You’ll flatten abs, improve posture, burn calories, lose inches, and increase strength and flexibility. Plus Elissa’s barre class is especially creative, so you won’t be bored, just "barred!"
