When you hear the word "barre", you are not thinking the pub down the street

You believe in reinventing yourself
You find joy in learning new skills and improving old ones. There are no risks when it comes to investing in you or your barre class certification.
You cannot help but tap to the beat of the music
Rock n’ Roll, Country, R & B, Hip Hop, House… if it has a beat you’ll find it. Music fuels your movement. Speaking of music, follow @barreintensity on Spotify for access to all our greatest barre class playlists.
You were not on Broadway, but you still love to dance
Your ballet career might have peaked at the age of 5 but you can still point your toe, kick your leg, and move your hips. You pride yourself on being able to lead a group at the Cha-Cha Slide.
You Are not afraid to sweat
To you, sweat is not just your body’s way of sparkling, its affirmation that you are creating change within yourself. Good things come to those who sweat.
You thrive in a group setting
Your confidence soars and your energy rises in a room of ten or more. You live by the motto “the more the merrier”. Becoming a barre instructor is just another way for you to be with more people.
Health and fitness ARE priorities
When faced with a strawberry shake or green smoothie, you’ll always choose the green smoothie. Eating healthy and staying active isn’t a chore; it’s necessary for a clear head.
You are disciplined
Nothing worth having comes easy and that’s just the way you like it. You understand that in order to be great you must take yourself out of your comfort zone and put in the time to practice.
You are good with words
Not only can you clearly and succinctly describe what you want but you can encourage and motivate as well.
There is a drawer in your dresser dedicated to leggings
