This month at Barreworks...
**NEWSFLASH!** this Sunday (Easter Sunday), we are hosting our third Men Only class at Barreworks. Word is spreading and demand increasing...and we're beyond excited to discover more and more men who are enjoying the benefits of working out at the barre. Women are boxing, playing football and driving in Formula One...
Perceptions are changing and we're spear-heading the campaign to introduce men to the barre and enhance their posture, strength and performance in other sports. Is your man, man enough to join us...?
We've formulated the class specifically for men, (no tutus or lycra required), just a bit of grit and determination to get through our signature full-body workout. We've made it accessible for beginners yet tough enough for any aspiring sportsman or weight-lifter. With a focus on the smaller muscles, deep core activation, balance and co-ordination, you'll discover why our classes require focus, determination and cognitive function on top of strength and movement...
The class is scheduled at 5pm-6.30pm. The perfect 're-entry' from a holiday or long-weekend and a great way to deal with chocolate/hot-x-bun excesses!
Just £15 for the 90-minute session for first-time visitors, single class or packages are available if he has been before. Book here!
Every referral from an existing client will receive a FREE pair of our signature grippy socks as a 'thank you', so email us to let us know you have persuaded him!
7 years and no itch...!
The phrase 'time flies' doesn't even come close.
It feels like yesterday since we opened our doors, but we're thrilled to celebrate our 7th year in the heart of wonderful Richmond, with a team that just keeps getting better and the most loyal (hard-working!) clients imaginable. Thank you for all your support and hard work at the barre!
Is your Man, Man enough..?
How many times have you heard your husband, boyfriend, partner, house mate scoff at this so-called 'gruelling' barre class you do every Tuesday evening..?
I mean, how hard can it be..?
Well, by popular demand (mostly from the Ladies, admittedly) it's time for Him to put his money where his mouth is...
We're introducing 'Men Only' Sunday sessions into our bi-monthly 90-minute workshop rotation.And look out for regular times in our schedule soon!
Get yourself (or your man) booked in on 5th March or 16th April (or both!) from 5-6.30pm. A rare opportunity for the man of your choice to benefit from the unique strength, posture and alignment that our WorkOuts offer. And panic not, we're designing a male-centric WorkOut (tailored for beginners) without requiring too much flexibility or co-ordination (we are realistic after all...)
Spaces are limited to 11, so don't delay!
Working out is the new Going out...
Following our sell-out 'Friday Night at the Barre' sessions with Sweaty Betty (and countless requests for a regular Friday evening slot!) we are thrilled to announce a regular Friday 7pm Ballet WorkOut with Sander Blommaert.
Ex-First Artist with The Royal Ballet School, Sander already has a life-time of Ballet experience that he can’t wait to share with you. And although he has come from a classical ballet background, he loves to mix things up a bit with some modern music and a unique edge to his teaching and repertoire.
So if your regular Friday night arrangements are usually more bar, than barre, why not swap your G&T for a glass full of endorphins…? OR, make it your dance-floor warm up before you go out.
Either way, this is the only way to welcome in the weekend! 7-8pm every Friday. Book now!
Refuel the right way...
We have just taken delivery of our latest pre or post-barre treat at the Studio..
Natural Cocoa Energy Balls are handmade in London by our friends at Healthbox Kitchen are made with a base of nuts, rather than dried fruit, for a richer flavour and softer texture. They are naturally higher in protein and unsaturated fats and lower in sugar, using only natural, 100% wholefood ingredients.
Perfect for delivering sustained energy without compromising on taste...and just £1 each!
Follow us on Spotify...
On an almost daily basis, we're asked 'which song did you play during standing split?' or 'what was the final stretch track?' Usually we're upside-down or with our heads over our knees to be able to scan the playlist in question, but now you can follow us on Spotify..! Listen to soothing classical tracks from our Ballet WorkOut on a Sunday afternoon, or get psyched up ready for a Barreworks WorkOut with one of our disco favourites.
Search for 'BarreworksStudio' and start rockin' out..!

The burning question...
What came first the chicken or the egg?
Do stairs go up or down?
How do you know which armrest to take in the cinema?
How many calories do you burn in a Barreworks class?
The results are in...Every visit to Barreworks (unless you're just coming in to say 'hello') will set you back a pretty impressive 347 calories. We partnered up with Fitbug to work out that the average heart rate during a class was 111bpm and maximum heart-rate was 146bpm. That equates to around 9,914 ‘aerobic’ steps and nearly 350kcals.
