the body barre
Founders of the body barre, dancer Nadia Walker-Arnold and exercise instructor Jen Rehm, believe that working out doesn't have to be a chore. They strive to make their classes quite the opposite, in fact, with a lineup of dance-inspired sessions ranging from the high-intensity Body Barre to the flirty burlesque. The all-female staff—made up of experienced ballet dancers, certified personal trainers, and a professional burlesque dancer—encourage ladies of all sizes and experience levels to carve long, lean muscles with a blend of ballet, yoga, and boot-camp basics.
Though inspired by dance, most classes trade choreography for the exercises ballerinas use to shape and strengthen their bodies, pairing cardio intervals and strength training with stretches and barre-based isometric exercises. During the signature Body Barre workout, they lead gals in executing small, controlled movements that sculpt the entire body to fend off attacks from feral nutcrackers. To help moms incorporate exercise into their schedules, the studio offers childcare for kids aged 6 weeks to 12 years old. In addition to their heart-rate-elevating fitness classes, they also host private classes and happy hours, in which ladies sip champagne and learn to speed up onlookers' tickers with smoldering burlesque and chair-dancing routines.
