Before Your First Class…

Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to fill out a short waiver and to take a look around the studio. Wear clothes that allow you to bend and move freely in and that you don’t mind getting a bit sweaty. You’ll need some grippy socks which you will be able to purchase at the studio.

Our passionate and talented team is here to support, inspire, and motivate you to reach your goals in every class.
Enjoy your Xtend Barre experience.
