Barre is a ballet inspired, core-focused exercise class that concentrates on isolated core fitness exercises, alignment, flexibility, and posture by employing targeted muscle movement. This method is a fusion of ballet, yoga, and pilates. Each exercise is thoughtfully and purposefully placed in the class exercise order to optimize the body’s ability to burn fat, sculpt the body, and build long, lean muscles.

About

TRŪBarre was born when Robyn Heckler’s passion for barre became fused with her friend Leslie Newbold’s dedication to healthy living. Having taken barre classes for five years and experienced barre’s benefits to both body and mind, Robyn’s love for sports, exercise, and nutrition made her want to open a barre studio of her own. When Leslie, already an established local business owner, became exposed to barre, she saw an opportunity in the Northern Philadelphia suburbs and her creative mind went running. Together, TRŪBarre was born. Robyn and Leslie are TRŪBelievers in barre, and what it can do for both your body and mind. Both are busy working moms who were once collegiate athletes and wanted to create a beautiful studio where anybody of any fitness level could come to exercise and feel comfortable. Together, Robyn and Leslie hope that you will join them for one hour in your busy day to let TRŪBarre’s mind and body benefits re-energize, reengage, and restore your health and vitality!

It is an exercise that can be done by both the young and old, superior athlete or novice, people recovering from injury, and women who are pregnant. It incorporates small isometric movements through interval training to create lean, long limbs, a strong core, increased flexibility, and a sound mind.
