Stretch, strengthen, lengthen, and tone – no dance experience required.
MINT barre combines elements of ballet technique, Pilates, and yoga to give you a low-impact, high-intensity workout to both strengthen and stretch your body in a fun, safe environment. Appropriate and accessible for individuals of all fitness levels, ages, and body types, MINT instructors will work with students to tailor the workout to your individual needs. It’s challenging, it’s effective, and best of all, it’s one of the many studio classes that come free with your membership at MINT.
At MINT, you don’t sacrifice your favorite cardio or strength workouts for access to Barre classes, and vice versa. Our Barre program will challenge you in new ways, creating long, lean bodies while delivering a great workout.
Unlimited barre classes are included with MINT class-access memberships or our class packages program.
