"The UK’s leading barre fitness brand Barrecore is delighted to announce the opening of its Leeds Studio on the 29th September 2016. The Studio gives West Yorkshire residents local access to Barrecore classes for the first time. With eight thriving studios in London, Manchester and Bristol, as well as high-profile celebrity advocates such as supermodel Jourdan Dunn and Pippa Middleton, Barrecore has become one of the UK’s most talked about and loved fitness studios.

The beautiful space, located above Sweaty Betty in the Victoria Quarter, boasts one large studio room that can hold up to 12 Clients, as well as changing facilities. Morning, lunchtime, evening and weekend classes are available to fit into the busiest of schedules, each taught by founder Niki Rein’s team of rigorously trained barre fitness instructors.

Regular Barrecore classes enable Clients to achieve the famous toned, lengthened and strong ‘barre body’, as well as a sense of health and wellbeing that is unique to this practice. Barrecore classes are low impact, full body, interval-training using isometric exercises alternated with stretching. Movements are undertaken using body weight as resistance and/or small equipment and high repetition, to overload the muscles followed by a stretch for relief and length, to create a longer looking and lean physique.

The brand new SCULPT class will also be launching at the Leeds Studio in September. This class partners iconic Barrecore moves with resistance bands to build intensity, enabling clients to better understand how to work muscles isometrically and eccentrically to feel a greater ‘barre’ burn. This is the perfect class for those looking to add intensity to their fitness regimes, for SIGNATURE FOUNDATIONS Clients looking for an additional challenge and first-timers looking to build technique.

“Leeds is such an exciting city, it's young and vibrant, as well as being a great home for professionals and families.

We are excited to be a part of the evolution of the city and we believe we are perfectly placed for our ideal clientele; those looking for a supportive community to continuously improve fitness and overall wellness with a time efficient and smart method!”
