Why Barre?

A Barre Fitness workout is unlike anything else. It’s a fun, intense, but accessible 1-hour workout that can be adapted to any level of experience or fitness. By combining the best elements of ballet barre, pilates, sports conditioning, and stretching, barre workouts are designed to trim, tone, and transform your entire body. We are dedicated to the evolution of Barre, with a variety of workouts suitable for anyone.

The best part? You’re not just joining a gym. You’re becoming part of a community of passionate and dedicated individuals. We hear it from clients all the time – they come for the workout, but they stay for the sense of positivity and support they receive from our certified instructors and fellow clients.

Certified Fitness Instructors – Barre Stars

Barre Fitness is not a one-size-fits-all workout, and we strongly believe that the people who teach the classes should have demonstrated their knowledge for fitness and empowering clients about their bodies. That’s why all of our expert instructors are also certified fitness professionals who have a strong background in teaching fitness and a passion for dance.

“I found out about Barre Fitness back in 2012 and I was absolutely hooked! So, in 2014, my partner and I sent an email enquiring about the process of opening a franchise. Before long we were actively applying for Franchise Rights in South Surrey!

It was a wonderful process, dealing with Ella and Michele. They were helpful every step of the way and always available to talk and answer any question we had. The information we received from them helped us prepare our business plan and helped us through the build out stage and into opening day. The training we received, both for our instructors as well as for our front end staff was stellar.

We love our Barre Fitness Family. And it really is a family.”

Susan Scarlett – South Surrey – Owner Since 2016

our story

Two Female Co-Founders. One Vision

In 2010, two powerhouse females established Canada’s first barre based studio in Yaletown, Vancouver. They had a single vision – inspiring happier lives through fitness and health. Since then, Co-Founders Ella Jotie and Michele Murgel have grown Barre fitness into the leading Barre company in Canada. Bringing over 35 years of combined experience in dance, choreography, group fitness, personal training, human resources, and business management, Ella and Michele have empowered thousands of people to lead healthier, happier lives – one plié at a time! Now, Barre Fitness is ready to take the next step and grow even further. That’s why we’re actively looking for franchise owners who want to bring this passion, vision, and dedication to their communities.

Team. Clients. Community

“Opening a Barre Fitness studio has been the most rewarding thing I have ever done! To see your hard work all come together with a beautiful studio full of clients who absolutely love the workout is a great feeling. Being my own boss is both challenging and rewarding and drives me to make this business a success. The workout works and I knew this was not just a fad when I fell in love with it. Michele & Ella inspired me from day one with their passion and vision for Barre Fitness – I knew I had to join them. Best decision I’ve ever made.”
