Be a Beginner at the Barre

Group fitness classes can be scary at first. Trust us, you aren’t alone. But things are different here. You don’t need to know what you're doing to start, and you don't have to do what the person next to you is doing either. ​We're here to make each exercise  work for your body.

This class is for you, it’s your 55 minutes to do your personal best. Our classes our fun but results-oriented, our staff is laid back in attitude but attentive to your class experience, and our clients are the glue that hold this barre body together! 

Ready to start? This summer, new clients take unlimited barre, cardio, and stretch classes FREE your first week.

So What's a NB Class Like?
Our classes are about discovering and using muscles that aren't typically worked during exercise (think hips, hamstrings, inner thighs, outer seat) with a constant focus on core. Although truly anyone can take this class (yes YOU), don't expect to breeze through it. Be patient with yourself, commit to coming back (we think three classes is a good measure), and don't wait too long in-between visits so it feels like you're a new client all over again! 

Frequently Asked Questions

  1. 1
    What makes Neighborhood barre different from other barre studios?
    We're you local neighborhood studio hangout. We're not a big box operation! We're a tight-knit community that knows your name, and your children's names. Our classes are tough, but modifiable. We hold you accountable, ensure safety while pushing you to your limits, and celebrate your successes along the way.
  2. 2
    What should I expect from my first Neighborhood barre class?
    Prepare to be a beginner regardless of your fitness routine. This is new to you and your body, so be patient with yourself! Expect your muscles to get hot and shaky (yes it's normal we promise!). Expect to discover muscles you didn't even know you had. Expect to be sore! Expect it to take a couple classes to fully click. Expect to see changes quickly..
  3. 3
    What is my instructor saying? Tuck where? Squeeze what?
    We use a different vocabulary here, and you're going to train your body to move like you never have during exercise. So let's break it down for you! We like to spend a few minutes setting you up for success beginning with your FIRST class. It's so important to arrive 15 - 20 minutes prior to class starting. Class will be much more enjoyable, and effective!!
  4. 4
    Will I do the same workout every day?
    Our workout constantly changes. In fact, you may never do the exact same workout two times in a row. EVER! We incorporate a wide variety of quality exercises that will keep your muscles guessing in every class.
  5. 5
    What if I can't do one of the exercises?
    We provide modifications for everything we do in class. But as a general measure, first start by losing any equipment. Second, listen to the instructor in class for ways that you can customize the exercise to work for you. If one exercise causes you trouble, we'll give you another to try!
  6. 6
    What do I wear?
    Typical yoga or pilates style clothing, but ultimately whatever makes you comfortable. No dress codes or barrebies here! We are a barefoot studio, so not shoes or socks, but feel free to wear barre grippy socks if you like.
  7. 7
    How much is child care?
    Child care is complimentary and included with any monthly unlimited package for our mama's! We also have drop-in child care if you are on a per-class package (this includes monthly 5-class pass, 8 class pass, and any per-class or drop-in package). Drop-in child care is $5 or you can purchase a 5 class child care pass for $20.
  8. 8
    How do I reserve child care?
    There's no need to create a separate profile or account for your child online. Just make a reservation for each child using your name under the "child care" tab for the same class time you are attending. Or give the studio a call and we'll reserve for you! Please make sure to reserve a spot for each individual child, as space is limited!
  9. 9
    Do I need to bring anything?
    Neighborhood barre provides all equipment needed during class. The only things you might want to have with you are a water bottle, and perhaps a small towel if you break a sweat easily.
  10. 10
    Should I eat before I come to class?
    The best way to ensure you are ready for your class is to make sure you’ve had some protein and carbohydrates at least 2 hours before your class (except early morning classes). Try a small snack so nothing sits heavy on your stomach.
  11. 11
    How many calories will I burn during class?
    As this is largely dependent on your size and weight, most burn between 300-600 calories per class. Remember that the more fatigued your muscles, the more calories you will continue to burn in the hour after class, so don't shy away from the burn and shake :)
  12. 12
    Can my class package be used at both studios?
    YES! Your class package may be used at both Neighborhood Barre Brentwood and Neighborhood Barre Green Hills.
  13. 13
    What's your class cancellation policy?
    Things happen that are out of your control. However, to avoid being charged please respect our cancellation policy. If you cancel within 2 hours of class start time, a $5 late fee will be charged (you receive 2 free late cancels annually). All no shows will be charged one class credit or a $10 no-show fee for unlimited members. Thanks for making space for your neighbor at the barre!
  14. 14
    What's your return policy?
    All class pass (individual or unlimited) purchases and any workshops are all final sale. There are no returns or refunds, so use it or lose it friends! For merchandise purchases, exchanges are available for 30 days from the date of purchase.
