"In July of this year I was told by two orthopedic surgeons that I would need a knee replacement on my left knee and at some time in the future one for the right knee. I was also told to wait for as long as I could tolerate the pain. That did not seem like the most fun thing to do so I decided, with the help and guidance of those doctors and my chiropractor, to strengthen the muscles around the knee, including the gluteal muscles.
I had taken classes with Natalie and Lisa sporadically in the past, and when they moved into their new and fabulous studio, I decided to get serious and go on a regular basis. Since that diagnosis, my muscles have gotten stronger and my knee pain is substantially diminished. My chiropractor is thrilled at the improvement.
These ladies know how to work our bodies in the most fun, energetic and innovative ways. I thank you and my knees thank you."
"Barre energy is everything I look for in a local business and workout class. Lisa and Natalie, the owners /instructors, are kind, funny, warm, and talented. Their knowledge and energy ensure classes full of fun. I have been attending classes for about 7 months, and I have noticed a definite improvement in strength and muscle tone even from just one class per week. Aside from the health benefits, It gives me a sense of community and positivity. I recommend Barre Energy to everyone I know who loves a good, hard, energetic workout!"
"True confession: when I started at BE five months ago, I could not even do 5 seconds of plank. Everything was hard for me. I wondered if, at age 55, I was too old to start this new workout. Well, those thoughts quickly evaporated because the instructors were so warm and supportive. I quickly started to feel stronger and see results from my efforts. Natalie, Lisa, Christy, and Laura are the best! They offer challenging workouts in such a fun, engaging environment. I appreciate that they can offer modifications for each specific person's needs. I am delighted with the strength and muscle tone I have built over the past five months. NOW, I can do several SERIES of plank exercises! Thank you, BE, for providing such a warm, supportive community that works me...to the core!"
"I love the BarreFlow class at Barre Energy! It is a perfect addition to my regimen. I find it the toughest class in the Barre Energy repertoire - with a beginning 'Plank' sequence that completely kicks my booty, (arms, shoulders, thighs, core - but in a good way). Lisa and Natalie, are terrific! Wonderfully motivating - they keep you focused to get the best out of your body - without haranguing you - and still manage to keep the mood light and positive. I keep expecting to find class easier, but they continue to keep it different and challenging. I am usually relieved to make it through class (again) but I always feel like I have really accomplished something. The class works every bit of your body - building strength and flexibility. A terrific addition."
"After years of child bearing and a career in child care, my lower back would go out every month. I would be debilitated, in bed, and in pain. My doctor recommended that I try a Barre class to strengthen my core. My first barre class was extremely insightful as to how my abdominal muscles were so weak, that my lower back compensated. After just two short weeks of attending 8 barre classes, I could tell the difference. The Barre Energy classes are amazing in how fast you can see the results of your hard work. My body responded quickly and I said goodbye to chronic lower back pain for good! I am so thankful!"
"I started Barre Energy about two years ago and feel in love with it!! I am avid runner who loves to exercise and found benefits from combining both Barre and running together. Barre Energy has helped strengthen the smaller muscles in my legs and around my knees to give me more power during my runs. These smaller muscles are hard to target while running, so by incorporating Barre into my weekly workouts has helped me tremendously with my speed, endurance and strength. Another benefit is the stretching that Barre Energy has you do during their class, this has helped lengthen my muscles and stretch them out after my long runs. "
"I have been taking classes at Barre Energy consistently for over a year. The positive affect it has had on my body and mind are amazing!
My favorite class is Barrdio, because it gives me that extra bit of cardio that I don't always have time for.
The music and the moves are a little faster, which makes for a really fun workout. It's the perfect combination of muscle building,
calorie burning, and stretching.
I love it!"
"I considered myself to be pretty fit until I started this class!!! I saw results after 3 weeks. Better than any gym workout. Thanks to Lisa and Natalie I'm running stronger than ever too with less mileage. The ideal crosstraing for athletes looking to avoid injury or get stronger overall!"
"Being a mom of three kids I had almost given up on having a toned, fit body. I always had an excuse on why I couldn't workout that day, but knew it was something I really wanted and needed in my life. I remember meeting Natalie and Lisa for the first time and thinking, 'now that is a body I want to have.' When I was told they teach Barre classes I decided to give it a try. My body was toning faster than anything I had ever done, and it was starting to affect other facets of my life. I felt like my attitude in life was changing. I was finally taking care of myself and in turn was becoming a better mother, wife, friend and person. I was out of shape when I started barre and can now beat my husband at a plank challenge. I told him I always want to be able to keep up with him and my children physically and with Barre Energy I know that will always be possible. Natalie and Lisa are people who make you feel like you matter and are dedicating to helping you reach your fitness goals. They are the kind of people who notice when you don't show up, and have a joy and energy that you just can't keep away from."
"I love Barre Energy! I've been attending classes regularly for over a year and I can see the results both physically and mentally. I am stronger, more fit, and more confident! Natalie and Lisa are remarkable teachers. They lead lively, challenging classes and also pay close attention to everyone's individual needs. (I've had spinal surgery -- they're always adapting exercises for me.) Their classes work for all ages, all body types, all levels of experience. And they're a blast. Thank you, Natalie and Lisa!"
"Barre Energy has changed my life—and my body. I am so much stronger now. I carried my too-big-to-be-carried kids around Europe this summer when they got tired of walking, and I used my abs, not my lower back—no pain! Natalie and Lisa and the other instructors really know bodies, and they pay attention to each and every person in the group. This class will challenge and support any level. I break more of a sweat now than I did in the beginning, because the growth opportunities just keep coming. I feel better and I look better. But barre is much more than physical self-improvement. It’s a light-hearted, hilarious community, a terrific way to get each day going with a big smile and the exhilaration of exercise. If you’ve forgotten the real pleasures of fitness, come have some fun with us!"
