What is barre?
Barre training combines the precision of Pilates, alignment of yoga, technique of ballet and strength from sports conditioning to make for a dynamic workout that lifts the butt, tones the thighs, sculpts the arms and burns fat.
BarreConcept is an internationally accredited barre workout method that is taking the world by storm.
Set to the beat of high energy music, this low impact, total body workout lifts the butt, tones the thighs, flattens the abs and sculpts the arms, whilst protecting the joints. Small isometric contractions are performed and integrated with an interval training approach that burns fat and improves cardiovascular fitness.
The result? A body that is realigned, rebalanced and works harmoniously and efficiently.
Stretches are performed after each strength section of the class to ensure the muscles are re-lengthened and to create a body that is strong without bulk.
The combined elements of the different methods fuse to form a challenging and exciting workout, which stretches and sculpts the muscles, whilst burning fat. Balance, strength, stamina, power, flexibility and motor control all improve. This workout produces dramatic results that sculpt and redefine the entire body, without even being a dancer.

Who is it for?
BarreConcept is for anyone who wants to develop full body tone and strength. Classes cater for all abilities, with the ability to adapt exercises depending on individual circumstances. Exercises are low impact so suitable for most individuals.
How long is the series?
This BarreConcept workout series runs for 6 consecutive weeks, for 60 minutes each Saturday morning. This enables participants to master the moves and techniques, whilst feeling the benefits that come with regular practice.
Can I attend individual sessions rather than the whole series?
Subject to capacity, you may be able to attend individual sessions as opposed to the whole 6 week series. It is, however, recommended that you attend the entire course for optimal results.
How many people are in a class?
Classes are limited to 10 participants to ensure proper care and attention is given to everyone. This allows a more personalised approach and the ability to check / correct technique so participants get the most out of each workout – plus the education and confidence to exercise on their own.
What do I need to bring?
Please bring your own mat/towel and a bottle of water.
BarreConcept is predominantly a ‘standing up’ workout but it is best done with bare feet or grip socks. There is no impact on joints so sports shoes are not required.
What people are saying
"I attended a series of Abi's barre classes having never done barre before. Abi is an engaging, knowledgeable and fun instructor - immediately I felt at ease. The sessions left me feeling invigorated and toned. Really looking forward to the next series." – Leigh
"Absolutely loved Abi's classes! She is always positive and really encourages you along during the difficult parts. I've really noticed a difference with my core/back strength since the classes. Thank you!" - Michelle
“I really enjoyed Abi’s barre lessons. The workout was tough but being in the class motivated me to keep going – and the satisfaction of knowing I had completed it was brilliant.” – Vicki
“Not having done any exercise for a long time and being the wrong side of fifty, I was a little dubious I would be able to cope. I found the classes very enjoyable and could feel the benefits almost straight away (without any of the agony I have suffered with previous exercise!). I would recommend this exercise to anyone, even if you are suffering from arthritis or back pain as it really seems to help.” – Alison
“Abi’s barre class was fun and challenging. I learned good techniques to achieve a full body workout in a new way. Definitely keen to do more of this!” - Suzie
