Can I do a class at Corner Barre even if I have never worked out? Absolutely! Corner Barre offers classes for all fitness levels and even offers Personal Instruction to assist beginners, people with injuries, and pre- or post-natal women.
Why choose Corner Barre instead of another studio? Corner Barre is Richmond's original barre studio. Open since early 2011, Corner Barre's instructor's are knowledgeable, experienced, and dedicated to providing you the long-term exercise training that you've been looking for. Classes at Corner Barre are frequented by people of all ages, shapes, sizes, and fitness levels. We welcome and encourage people of all experience levels to participate. Our classes are designed for both novice and advanced exercises to work side-by-side and each get a satisfying workout.
Is Corner Barre for women only?
Corner Barre is not just for women. Men are also welcome at our classes. However, few men attend except for special events.
What do I need to bring and wear to class? Wear workout clothes that you find comfortable. Slim-fitting pants are optimal so the instructors can see your form and ensure that you are getting the best workout possible. Our classes can be done in bare feet, but non-slip socks are recommended. These can be purchased in studio. If you have a desire or medical reason to wear sneakers, you may wear shoes. You may bring your own mat or use one of ours.
Do I need to reserve my space in class ahead of time? It is helpful, but not required You may drop-in to classes if space is available. Classes are typically capped at 14 people so reservations are recommended.
Do I have to be flexible to attend these classes? No. Classes at the Corner Barre WILL increase your flexibility! Focused stretching compliments each portion of the workout so you will begin to feel more limber from your first class.
How often can I take Corner Barre classes? The great thing about Corner Barre's classes is that they are safe to take as often as you wish. Our workout classes are low-impact and use body resistance and light weights. Plenty of stretching is involved so you can safely take as many classes a week as you want.
