The past few years have been full of change, and the health and wellness industry has been at the forefront of adapting to customer needs and changing guidelines. What we have learned is that clients like variety in the workout, and modalities focused on physical and mental benefits are growing in popularity.

Born out of London from famed dancer Lotte Berk, the barre modality has transformed into a workout focused on small movements to tone and sculpt the body. The sense of community brought on by barre studios across the world has no doubt led to its popularity, but the ability to easily take classes online with little equipment also leads to the attractiveness of this workout.
