Created by international fitness celebrity and former Lotte Berk Method instructor Suzanne Bowen, BarreAmped is the result of more than 13 years of physiological study and client observations by one of America’s top fitness talents. Precise form is essential to achieving optimal results in BarreAmped; thus, BarreAmped instructors are highly trained to correct and refine your positioning during each workout. Setting BarreAmped apart from other barre methods is its focus on work with a neutral spine.
BarreAmped is an intensive body shaping experience designed to produce reliable results, no matter the client. The method is influenced by classical and modern dance (though it is not a dance class) and utilizes a barre to achieve optimal positioning. Insights from Pilates combined with active and orthopedic stretching also balance the method’s unique approach. The precision-oriented technique focuses mainly on small, isolated movements within deeply held and challenging postures. BarreAmped is proven to increase metabolism, burn fat, and lengthen tight muscles. With commitment to the technique, you get recognizable results exactly where you want them.
What’s in a name?
A juxtaposition of calming and energizing, BarreAmped is a method which takes classic barre moves and amps them up with power, precision, and focused intensity. This electrifying method deeply connects the mind to the body and clients leave BarreAmped classes feeling plugged in and calmly energized while they shed pounds and lean out.
Why form first?
To get maximum amped up results and to stay safe, BarreAmped classes are taught with an emphasis on form. From the foundation up, a client works at her (or his) own maximum in order to achieve both mental and physical benefits from the first class. From its inception, a neutral spine position has been paramount in the BarreAmped method. With a team of experts in the fields of anatomy, biomechanics, and physical therapy, BarreAmped continues to evolve and remain a forerunner in the fitness and movement world.
Who takes BarreAmped?
BarreAmped is for anyone and everyone looking to shed pounds, tone up, stretch out, and destress. No dance experience is required. BarreAmped is not a dance class, though we hope you find a dancer’s strength and grace throughout class!
