Sweet fitness studio Barre Bee Fit offers a super-effective ballet-barre workout incorporating elements of heart-pumping cardio, yoga-like stretching, Pilates mat work, and light weights. The result: a toned, lengthened body from head to toe. This is the workout every woman wants, one that helps you create a smaller waistline, a tighter butt, and leaner legs — all in a 60-minute class. Get the Barre Bee Fit experience with this exclusive offer for five classes in the Lincoln Park studio at a major discount.
Barre Bee Fit's method: small isometric movements work each individual muscle group to the point of exhaustion; those movements are followed by stretches that lengthen those muscles. While the workouts are tough, the atmosphere is totally nonintimidating. "We encourage our students to ask questions and to stay after class to talk," says co-owner Jillian Baumbick. "We're not the kind of place where you have to wear head-to-toe designer workout clothes to fit in." The two Barre Bee Fit studios are located in River North and Lincoln Park and offer multiple classes each day. Instructors are upbeat and motivating, pushing you to your limits as nicely as possible. You'll feel the burn during class and feel the payoff, including added strength and increased metabolism, long after.
