We are thrilled to announce that Wheelhaus Bikegarten is converting to CycleBar®. We plan to open this January. CycleBar will raise the bar on your indoor cycling experience. We will offer luxury amenities, CycleStats® personal performance tracking, CycleBeats® mind-blowing playlists, and invigorating rides led by CycleStar® Instructors, the most inspiring people in the business.
All of our classes are safe for ages 16 and up!
Yes, we encourage you to attend class on consecutive days. Regular attendance will help to build muscle memory and efficiency and alleviate muscle soreness. Because of the diversity of strength building exercises at Local Barre, guests should expect to feel some tenderness after every class, particularly in the beginning or after a break. You might consider varying the type of class you take on consecutive days by supplementing the Open BarreSM with the our Dance and Cardio classes.
You will learn to engage your core with every exercise to feel a change after the first week, see a change after the first month, and achieve a noticeable Local Barre body before next season. We encourage you to embrace the powerful relationship between your mind and body, and energy. Focus your energy on a fulfilling and meaningful life and good health and beauty will come to you.
Local Barre® exercises target your largest muscle groups (i.e. legs and buttocks) – the larger the muscle, the more calories burned. You will build lean muscle mass which burns the most calories even while your body is at rest. As you see results, you will be motivated to make better decisions about your nutrition. If you participate in Local Barre classes regularly and maintain a healthy lifestyle outside the Barre, then you will become slimmer. We challenge you to let go of the fixation with the scale and redirect your energy on total fitness, being strong inside and out. Perhaps more extraordinary than shedding pounds, you will love your body.
No! Local Barre® routines will trim your body. The series of exercises strengthen and stretch every major muscle group in the body, targeting hard to reach muscles to burn maximum calories and attain a more sculpted shape. You will notice a redistribution of your body weight as sagging muscles become firmer and more lifted. In the beginning, this might give you the false impression of fuller muscles. As you stick with it, your muscles will become more compact and you will shed the fatty tissue between the muscles to achieve a slimmer physique.
Yes! At Local Barre®, you will become more flexible. The Local Barre® method alternates strength and stretching to exhaust your muscles before they are stretched to lend themselves more easily to stretching. Concentration and breathing techniques allow muscles to relax. Flexibility and range of motion are important in preventing injury and keeping your body youthful.
No problem! Our clients range from never having heard of pointe shoes to dancing their entire lives. For our beginners, you will notice some dance terms. We recommend watching your fellow Barregoers and of course, asking our talented Barretenders as many questions as you need!
It depends on your body and why cardio is important to you. Local Barre classes are aerobic, fast paced, moving from strengthening to stretching exercises nonstop like interval training. Besides the obvious heart benefits, it is important to train our lungs. Controlled breathing strengthens the core and improves endurance which means the ability to exercise longer with less effort. We encourage guests to compliment their Open Barre workouts with our Dance and Cardio classes for additional cardio and to practice deeper breathing techniques.
To ensure proper alignment, it is suggested that guests wear formfitting clothing for Open Barre classes. For Open Barre classes, socks or instudio shoes are required and may be purchased in the retail boutique.
Of course not! We welcome Dames and Daddy O’s alike.
Yes! Local Barre® is an effective work out that is safe to continue throughout your pregnancy. At the beginning of each class please let the instructor know that you are expecting so they can show you any modifications that may be necessary. For more information regarding fitness and your pregnancy please contact us.
Yes! Our child care program is called Monkey BarreSM. Please view our schedule for days and times. The price is $5 per child. This service is open to children 6 months and older. If your child is younger than 6 months we encourage you to join us for Open Barre: BYOBabySM Optional. For more details please visit Monkey BarreSM.
First time guests are requested to arrive ten minutes before class so the instructor can introduce themselves, welcome you to Local Barre, and address any injuries, limitations, and questions. For safety reasons, beginners are strongly discouraged from joining a class once the instructor has begun. For the safety and satisfaction of all Local Barre guests, late entry will not be permitted to anyone beyond the initial five minutes of any class.
All cancellations must be made at least 12 hours prior to the class start time. An "early cancel" (outside of the 12-hour cancellation window) will not affect your account. If the cancellation is made within the 12-hour period before the class start time, it is considered a "late cancel", and the class will be removed from your account. Open Tab clients will be charged current drop in rate for that class.
