Named one of the best workouts in the country, The Barre Code just made its way to the Tri-State. See how it can give your fitness a boost in 2017.

The Barre Code will soon be opening its doors in Cincinnati after making a statement with its body sculpting workouts across the country.

Based in Chicago, the fitness franchise will open its first Ohio location thanks to Michelle Ziegler.

When The Barre Code was established back in 2010 by Ariana Chernin and Jillian Lorenz, it was a women’s-focused exercise regimen that aimed to change the way women perceive their own strength. The workout also came with a full-bodied program that was driven by empowerment, positivity, and community.

“The Barre Code is not your typical ‘barre studio,’” says Ziegler. “It brings the area a one-stop-shop of cardiovascular conditioning, strength training, and restoration class formats.”

Ziegler was inspired to bring an exercise program like The Barre Code to Cincinnati after a heartbreaking experience of her own. She lost her dad after a long battle with cancer and was looking for an outlet to help her heal.

“Little did I know that I would find a community to not only help me find peace, but also a place that reignited my passion for dance and fitness,” she says. “The Barre Code became like a second home to me and I knew I wanted to create this same community for women in Cincinnati.”

The Barre Code is a new barre workout coming to Cincinnati.

“The Barre Code is a very special community,” adds Ziegler. “With an extremely loyal following across the country.”

The Barre Code will opens its doors in Cincinnati in early 2017. “It offers a health and wellness community in the heart of downtown,” adds Ziegler. “It will also foster a community that supports and motivates members to be the best versions of themselves.”

When you join The Barre Code, you’ll find that you can meet a number of fitness needs in one place. “The program promotes personal growth and self-acceptance and it promotes the importance of the mind-body connection,” she says.

Workouts at The Barre Code are fun and high energy, and is specifically engineered for a woman’s body with new routines each week as well as a variety of class formats.

Ziegler says The Barre Code is the perfect fitness facility to visit in the New Year because it’s something that you will become a part of. “You will be challenges and you will have a support system to cheer you on along the way – it’s an environment where women support one another,” she says. “De-stress from a hectic work day, prepare for looking and feeling your best for your upcoming wedding, stay active and healthy during your pregnancy, or just take some well-deserved time for yourself. Whatever your reason, The Barre Code will become your go-to place.”

When the studio opens, it will offer traditional barre classes as well as classes focused on HIIT (interval training), strength (boot camp), and restoration (stretch). The concept behind The Barre code is rooted in innovation that continually introduces new formats that will keep classes interesting and challenging.

Ziegler says that pricing for classes has not yet been finalized, but everyone’s first class is free. “There will be options to purchase class packs or monthly-unlimited memberships,” explains Ziegler. “We can say, however, that ‘founding members,’ or those who sign up for the unlimited monthly membership before or at the grand opening, will receive special pricing.”

The Barre Code will be located at 615 Main Street, just a few blocks from Fountain Square and on the streetcar line.

Keep an eye out for The Barre Code in 2017 as it opens its doors to downtown Cincinnati in late March or early April. Ziegler says they will also be announcing additional details on grand opening events. Ziegler says that you can also feel free to reach out at any time by emailing
