Looking for the perfect gift for the workout enthusiast in your circle of friends or family? Give the gift of fitness this holiday season with a gift certificate to NEIGHBORHOOD barre! 

Neighborhood Barre™ is a unique workout that combines the elements of dance conditioning, pilates, and weight training to create what is commonly referred to as a “dancer’s physique.” The technique primarily uses small isometric movements to carve and sculpt the muscles of the arms, legs, seat, and abs. Each set of exercises is followed by a series of stretches to shape the muscles, making them long and lean. 

The Neighborhood Barre™ workout is suitable for both male and female patrons and can be performed by a wide range of ages. It can be used as either a primary fitness program or as a complement to an existing program. With 3 convenient locations in Bearden, West Knoxville, and Farragut, you are sure to find a studio and time that fits your schedule. We also offer free childcare during select class times.

Gift Cards can be purchased HERE and are good at any of the 3 area locations!
