Barre Effect is a brand new fitness studio on Al Wasl that we absolutely love!

Now that we can safely return to in-studio classes, we have been on the lookout for a total body workout that can get us back into shape. Barre classes have always been a firm favorite for us, and when we received an invitation to try out some of the classes at this newly opened studio, we were super excited to give it a shot.

Barre Effect is a cozy spot where the attention to detail is immaculate. The one-room studio is flooded with natural light and plenty of space to ensure that safe social distance is maintained between the clients at all times. The changing rooms are Instagram-friendly with the most inviting decor that includes gorgeous pampas and products by Malin+Goetz, a brand we adore.

An online booking system ensures that all clients have a designated spot before the class. Even the smallest of details are all thought through, so once you arrive after a quick sign in and temperature check, you can go into the studio and settle into your spot. For now we all must carry our own mat, towels and water.

The distinctive 50-minute classes are musically driven, each featuring individually curated playlists, created exclusively by the team of instructors. Every class has its own energy thanks to the instructors who all come from dance and fitness backgrounds. Having tried classes with all the instructors including the founder Nora, we can assure you that they are all amazing and make sure we stay motivated and do the best we can throughout the class.

No matter which session you pick, the class is a full-body workout with different props, that keeps you moving and is never repetitive. We love the high energy, encouraging environment and the overall challenge. We leave there with shaky legs but also feel re-energized and proud to have completed the class!

The Barre Effect method is a contemporary version on traditional barre, designed to sculpt the body, boost metabolism, and challenge the mind. This is the type of workout that shows results after just a few sessions!

Having attended five sessions, we are already addicted.
