After one barre class at Physique 57 studio, I am now a barre addict. So now, barre is part of my fitness routine. This is A Review of Physique 57 Barre in LA.
A Review of Physique 57 Barre in LA
I was tired of the same old fitness classes at the gym. So I decided to try a Class Pass trial membership. The trial included 5 total classes in a month at a number of top boutique fitness studios and gyms in Los Angeles.
The first one that I choose was a class at Physique 57 in Beverly Hills, CA. Physique 57 is a barre workout with a global fan base. It combines cardio, strength training and stretching into one class that tones the entire body. Barre uses your own body weight as resistance to lean the body.
But I was surprised how challenging the class was; I felt the burn after a few reps. The instructor was attentive and made sure I had the proper form at all times. I loved the choreography. The flow of the class went along with energetic music. The only thing I didn’t like was the carpeting floor.
PS: They sell the cutest grippy socks at the front desk if you forget yours at home.
The front desk sells inspirational workout wear, barre equipment, DVDs, and Sweet & Soothe Kit by Lather. The kit includes 1 month of unlimited online Physique 57 workouts, a stretch band + 10 exercise workout guide, a Himalayan & Epsom bath salts and a muscle ease gel in a zippered toiletry bag. The kit makes a great gift idea for any fitness junkie. The bath salts felt great after a challenging workout.
I felt my posture improved even after one class. I sit behind a desk all day so I have a tendency to hunch. If a low-impact but yet intense and invigorating workout can improve my posture, call me a barre addict. I’m ready for a ‘lean’ look.
