With the everyday stresses of regular life, combined with planning a destination wedding, it can be hard to find time to get to the gym. Thankfully, there are some workout regimens which don’t necessitate putting in long hours at the gym. Barre3 classes combine the disciplines of yoga, Pilates and ballet barre work. Best of all, Barre3 classes are designed to be accessible with both studios, online workouts and DVDs. The fitness program focuses no strength, grace and whole body wellness.

Barre3 is also great for the bride on the go or people who travel a lot. With online courses, you can get your workout in at home or wherever you might be. There’s also a mobile app which grants you access to virtual workouts, healthy recipes and finding a studio near you. The first studio was in Portland, Oregon, but there are now over 50 Barre3 studios nationwide with more and more being added.

Founded in 2008, Barre3 is a system of one-inch isometric variations and fluid motions which take inches off the body for immediate and continuous results. For more information about Barre3 or to try a free online workout, visit
