About the studio

We aren’t just another Barre studio.

At Xtend Barre we focus on creating a LIFESTYLE centered around wellness, empowerment, and strength. We don’t just change bodies. We change lives. The best part? We do it together, as a COMMUNITY.
So, if you’re expecting another barre workout, think again. Xtend Barre is a body-enhancing addiction made up of graceful yet energizing combinations of Pilates, dance and cardio.
And the Barre is just the beginning. We also offer TRX (strength training), Circuit 7 (HIIT training) and Xtend Barre STICK classes. Get ready, you’re about to fall in love.
It doesn’t matter how old you are. It doesn’t matter if you haven’t worked out in ten years. Or if you’ve worked out every day for the past year. We will show you how to work harder than you ever imagined you could. We will change your body, your life, and your attitude. So take the risk. MEET US AT THE BARRE.
