Barre Bee Fit may go by “The Barre Code” now, but the Shadyside studio still delivers a serious workout program. “We changed our name to reflect our evolving and maturing brand,” says owner Meredith Ward. “As we grow nationally, we want to make sure that we carry forth our mission to become a fitness program for all women, regardless of age, condition, or stage of life.” Along with the new name comes three new classes: Brawl, an intense cardio kickboxing combo; TBC (short for “The Boot Camp” or “Total Body Conditioning”), a series of strength training and cardio exercises; and Barre Code Basics. “This is a simplified version of our signature Barre Code class with a slower tempo,” Ward says. “It is perfect for clients new to our studio, just getting back to fitness, or looking for a more conscientious pace but challenging class.”
