SB Body Barre
We are getting a huge response from our members here at our Merritt Athletic Clubs in Maryland, they are LOVING SB Barre! We are at capacity in most of our classes and adding SB BARRE to two more of our locations. Anne Marie and Stacey have also been great to work with. I could not be happier with the programming!

For two years I’ve instructed SB Barre, and of all my fitness studies, this is where my passion lies. I am a Team USA athlete, certified personal trainer, and cycle instructor, too. Confidently, SoulBody Barre showcases the holistic elements of training that every woman desires. Flowing beautifully, Barre gives my body the ability to feel strong, fit and powerful, all while looking lean and sculpted through difficult choreographies that are put together by the SoulBody Team.
I constantly feel empowered by my students that come through the door who are there for a great workout and challenge each choreographed piece presents. Each class focuses on every inch of the body, burning each muscle to reach its greatest potential and pushing yourself past what you thought you could do. Students are ready to take on that challenge — and always come back for more

We love SB Body Barre! Since bringing the class to BeachFit we have had a tremendous response from our members because the class is innovative and pushes you to work muscles you never realized you had. It is one of our most popular classes and we have had to add more timeslots to the schedule in order to keep up with and accommodate the demand. SB Body Barre is a great addition to our studio since we don’t have a fixed barre. This class offers not only mobility and convenience for the studio but also a challenge that our members really love because it lacks the fixed stability of more traditional barre classes. The workouts that Ann Marie and Stacey have choreographed flow well ensuring that you will get a full body burn while having a lot of fun along the way…. cue in the hip sways!

We are thrilled about our newest program that allows clubs and studios to get the same “barre” workout we have created with SB Barre, without having to install a fixed bar or even purchase dumbbells. A 6lb or 9lb body bar and fitball is all you need for both strength and balance! A mindfully intense hour – seamless flow – 2 props!
What is SB Body Barre?
SoulBody’s newest program that uses the same interval training and muscle shaping isometrics as our original SB Barre class, but uses the Body Bar™ for both the weighted portion as well as for “centered” barre work for legs and seat. Using the same blocking as our flagship program including upper body strength moving to intense thigh and seat work – finishing with bridge and core, along with yogic stretches – this method uses the weighted Body Bar™ and fitball throughout – Two props, unlimited possibilities!
