You can thank Barrecore founder Niki Rein for ushering ballet fitness across the Atlantic. A former disciple of LA fitness queen Tracy Anderson, she now heads up an empire of six London barre studios (with a northern outpost found in WAG haven Alderley Edge). Each 60 minute session is a series of small toning movements, designed to improve posture and sculpt a ballet dancer body. Sound simple? After the twentieth repetition, it really isn’t – you’ll stagger out with shaky thighs and the prospect of a seriously sore bum for the next couple of days. Class sizes are small, meaning more attention from your teacher and a slimmer chance of booting your neighbour in the face as you attempt an arabesque.
