Barre Style workouts have been making headlines recently on Instagrams of the elite Victoria Secrets Models, fitness gurus and A-listers alike.

The popularity of the workout has even spread to China, as classes there as well as in Hong Kong as demand has been increasing since Victoria's Secret 2017 show held at the Mercedes-Benz Arena in Pudong, Shanghai.

There is an endless supply of barre classes from Ballet Bare to BarreCore  in whatever city you may be in,
