“The truth is barre3 is for everyone…” (and with *free* childcare, that includes the kids!)

Who is barre3 designed for? I get this question all the time. Usually followed by another qualifier, “I just had a baby,” “I’m not fit enough,” “I’m not flexible,” and the list goes on. The truth is that barre3 is for everyone and every body. It is for you, your best friend, your sister, and your mom, and it is a great balance to every other type of workout.

How is this possible? Our signature barre3 workout is designed to be adaptable for every need and is a combination of strength conditioning, cardio, and mindfulness. My team encourages you to listen to your body and empowers you to chase after your goals. Every posture has several variations and modifications so you can take care of your body and your fitness level. But don’t get me wrong, we work really hard, get sweaty, and build endurance and strength in every workout.

My favorite thing about barre3 Old Town is the community we have built. So many of my clients have come to our studio expecting a workout, but leave with best friends. We are also a place where families come to spend time together. Mothers and their daughters, couples, and siblings all make up our community. Perhaps the most special part of barre3 Old Town is the kiddos that come through our doors. We offer Play Lounge seven days a week so that our clients can take care of themselves while we care for their kids.

Our Play Lounge space is designed for kids from six weeks to young teens and everyone in between. We have dedicated Play Lounge staff who interact and play with your little ones, all so your kids have such a great time that they ask to come to barre3!

We know the summer can be a particularly busy time for parents! So, we are offering a special offer for our members. Not only does our studio membership include unlimited classes, access to online workouts, a retail discount, and access to our workshops, but this summer, it also includes FREE Play Lounge. Additionally, we are expanding our Play Lounge to include crafts, activities, games, and books designed with older kids in mind who spend the year in school!

  • The latest from Meredith
I moved to Old Town three years ago by way of Washington, D.C, where I worked in politics for over 10 years. That is also where I discovered barre3 and when I decided to open my own studio, I knew there was no place I’d rather be than in Alexandria.

Our classes at barre3 Old Town are for every body. Our signature class combines cardio, strength training, and mindfulness and we don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to exercise. Instead, we empower each individual to modify postures and develop body awareness for lasting results.
