The Launch of a Barre Program - Iowa State University

The Launch of a Barre Program - Iowa State University

April 2017 Barre Intensity had the pleasure of conducting our first barre instructor training in the state of Iowa; hosted by the campus recreation team at Iowa State University. We could not be more proud of what the team has accomplished with the build out of their new barre studio, continued instructor development and barre classes filled to capacity.

Hear from Ashley Artist, Group Fitness Coordinator at Iowa State University, on what their barre experience has been like.

Collegiate Level Barre Certification Program

Barre fitness classes have become a staple on many collegiate campus recreation schedules across the country. Since instructor turnover is inevitable with graduation of student instructors, it's important to have a barre certification program that is reliable and effective. Who better to explain the benefits of the Barre Intensity barre certification program than one of our most valued partners at the University of Nebraska. Hear from Sarah Lewis, Group Fitness Coordinator, on why she recommends Barre Intensity.

Training Your Instructors: Here's How to Open a Barre Studio

Let's get right to it, opening a barre studio is hard work. Finding the right location, managing the build out, defining your brand, building a website and securing your team are just a few of the milestones before you open a barre studio. "If you build it they will come" is only true if you also market your product and have top notch barre instructors on the schedule. Since we're in the barre certification business, we know a thing or two on how to get your team ready for opening day.
