The BarreAmped Method enlists the fitness fundamentals of classical dance, Pilates, and yoga to create a full-body workout that works to tone muscles while helping improve body awareness, balance, and coordination. Both studio locations boast physically invigorating classes for a range of fitness levels; click here for the Tampa schedule of classes taught by certified Barre Amped instructor Denise Tini and the St. Petersburg schedule of classes taught by certified Barre Amped instructor Maria Gerelus. A ballet barre props up precarious postures and aligns wayward limbs as classes of up to 16 students arch and bend through a series of held postures that produce effective, enjoyable soreness deep into muscles with tiny isometric movements. Even if they lack formal dance training, attendees can boost their metabolisms to hummingbird levels and cultivate lean, graceful muscles and the flexibility of an empty appointment book.
Though both studios sometimes offer discounted rates online, today’s Groupon still presents the best deal available.
