Having brought the Barre revolution to the UK in 2011, Barrecore is hands-down the authority on Barre fitness. Our method is not only proven to build stronger bodies, but it's the community-focused ethos of our studios that sets us apart. This course has been designed by our Co-Heads of Teacher training to not only teach you all the important technical aspects of delivering an exceptional Barre class, but the importance of connecting with your clients and investing in their well-being to truly be successful in this industry.

Whilst the Barrecore Academy course does not permit you to teach within Barrecore studios, nor does it allow you to teach Barrecore classes, it will give you the foundation necessary to deliver a strong Barre class.

Excitingly, Barre fitness has grown in popularity massively in recent years! It’s important to be aware however, that all Barre is not created equal (as brilliantly explained in this great read on Huff Post).

We pride ourselves on constantly updating and adapting our formats to keep up with the latest industry research and findings when it comes to delivering safe and effective exercise. We don’t cut corners in our studios and we won’t let our Barrecore Academy students either!


Our Co-Heads of Teacher Training - Gemma Bass-Williams and Emily King are responsible for bringing in the best and brightest fitness instructors and training them up to be incredible Barrecore teachers in all of our UK studios. Who better to learn from and have mentor you on your path to be certified to teach Barre?

Gemma and Emily have spent years curating and perfecting this course by including the most vital pieces of learning from our in-house teacher training programme. Our 5-week Barre certification course will provide you with the curriculum, expert instruction and mentorship you need to be at the front of the pack in the Barre fitness industry.

Do I need to buy anything for the course?
