This is the complete opposite of every barre type class you have taken, and it is a gajillion times more awesome. For around the same price or even less as Exhale and Physique 57 you get a more personalized class (capped at 12 per class). And I would tell you all the reasons I believe this is a better class for your body, just drink the Kool-Aid and read the FAQ section on their website. It explains why C-ab sections don't work, and why you need interval training. It was a physically challenging class but I really felt like I was doing the movements correctly because the instructor able to provide personalized instruction. I like to slack off so in a crowded Physique class, I can sort of manage to hide myself.. But there's none of that here. Laura was super perky and nice, and the music was awesome. Even if you are dedicated to barre-work, this should at least be an experience to try as it is the complete opposite.
