AFM: What makes Barre3 different from any other barre workout?

KJ: Barre3 is for everyone. We don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to exercise. Instead, we empower each individual to modify postures and develop body awareness for lasting results. Our signature approach to teaching gives clients a rewarding endorphin high and a deep muscle burn without pain in areas of the body prone to injury.

AFM: How is Barre3 an effective workout?

KJ: Barre3 is a game changer for sure. People come here for an amazing workout, but they stay for the community. It's a safe place where you can come to move your body, but also rejuvenate your mind. When you walk through our studio doors, you'll always be greeted with a smile from a team who is truly invested in YOU. Our clients come from all different backgrounds and stages of life, but when they come to the studio none of that matters, we're all in it together - growing together, moving together and learning together, because together we are better.
