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. Get ready, you’re about to fall in love.
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 offer the full range of programming with 40 classes per week, including the newest Xtend Barre classes: Circuit 7 (HIIT), Xtend Suspend (TRX), Pilates Fusion & Yoga Flow.
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 You at the Barre. We promise to be the best part of your day.
