Please browse through our frequently asked questions to find answers to any of your questions relating to Simply Barre.


Do I need to be flexible to take class?

simply-no! Increased flexibility is one of the great benefits of the Simply Barre technique.

Can a beginner come to a simply barre class?

absolutely! No experience required. We are all beginners at some time. Simply Barre classes are inclusive of anyone at any age and at any fitness level. Simply Barre instructors create a supportive and non-competitive atmosphere. Clients can be challenged at their own level without affecting anyone else’s workout.

How often do I need to take class?

We encourage our clients to visit 3-4 times per week for the most dramatic results and a better understanding of the Simply Barre positions and proper alignment. Clients normally feel results after a few Simply Barre classes and see results after 10-15 classes when taken consistently. The more often you come to class, the better results you will see!

What are other benefits of simply barre?

In addition to increasing the percent of lean muscle mass, the isometric movements of Simply Barre exercise will protect bone health, improve posture, increase flexibility and build core strength. A strong core can increase your performance in all other activities of your life; tennis, golf, skiing or chasing your kids around the house.

Will simply barre classes help me lose weight?

yes! Simply Barre exercise targets the largest muscle groups in the body; thighs, glutes and abs--the larger the muscle worked, the more calories burned! As you continue to attend class, you will begin to build more lean muscle mass and burn more calories every day. Pair the Simply Barre exercise routine with a healthy diet and you will absolutely see results.

What do I need to bring to class?

Just bring yourself! We will provide you with a mat, light hand weights and the props required for class. Capped water bottles are allowed with clear liquids only. Please no chewing gum or food items in the studio.

What should I wear?

Comfortable clothing that is easy to move in but not too loose fitting. We suggest a supportive top or tank, long athletic leggings or pants that reach at least the knee; it is important that our instructors are able to check your form and alignment throughout class. Socks that cover the entire foot are required and we recommend sticky socks to avoid slipping and help positioning. (available for purchase at the studio)

Can I take a class if I’m pregnant?

absolutely! We ask that you check with you doctor and sign a waiver prior to taking class. Our instructor’s will provide modifications to help you exercise safely but remember, listen to your body, take breaks, drink plenty of water and ask for modifications if you feel uncomfortable at any point.
