Choose Between Two Options
- $15 for two Barre Strength, Relevé 3, or Air Ballet classes (a $40 value)
- $49 for one month of unlimited prenatal/postpartum classes (a $165 value)
Barre Strength combines ballet's barre with light weights found in core conditioning and resistance. Relevé 3, formerly called Hot Ballet, mixes ballet steps and yoga positions in a room heated to 105 degrees, and Air Ballet fuses ballet with aerial silk-hammocks moves. See the schedule. Prenatal/Postpartum classes, suitable for currently or recently pregnant women, are designated by *P in parentheses after the class name.
A two-hour parking validation at the Duke Energy Center is included for all patrons.
Flex + Fit
Flex + Fit cultivates an environment focused on well-being, from sweat-inducing fitness classes to habit-changing cooking classes. This effort was lauded by Charlotte Magazine in its 2012 Best of the Best feature. The group fitness curriculum includes sweat-inducing hot yoga, in which limbs bend and stretch in a studio stoked to the ideal temperature, and air classes that suspend students from the ceiling to execute mid-air yoga, ballet, or fitness moves, or—as recently featured on CNN—to nap.
Complementing the fitness classes are lessons in culinary exploration, hosted by head chefs and tour guides that teach small gatherings to craft meals and sip complimentary libations in an on-site kitchen. The fitness studio’s natural-wood floors give way to a wall-mounted Buddha figurine at the head of classes, and his-and-hers locker rooms lavish hard-working muscles with a soothing downpour from overhead showers bred from two prize-winning Amazonian rain clouds.
