Finally a workout that delivers real results without highly impacting on the body. Port de Barre classes not only switch on muscle groups at the back of the body which can sometimes become lazy in other training, but tone and sculpt muscles through lengthening and strengthening. A great workout delivered by a great teacher. I am delighted that barre has reached Bath!
I was absolutely thrilled to hear of a new ballet based fitness class starting in Bath and I certainly was not disappointed! Not only is Port de Barre one serious results driven workout but delivered by a sparkling dynamo, Tam. Having been in the wellness industry for 27 years, rarely have I come across instructors that are as professional, incredibly well educated in their area of expertise, engaging, motivating as well as mindfully conscientious of each student, their level of ability and limitations as Tam. This class is FUN and my bum has not looked this good in years! Port de Barre is the best thing to happen in the Bath fitness scene for a very long time.
I had heard lots about Barre classes in London and so was delighted when PDB arrived in Bath. I have been regularly attending Tam’s classes since Easter and love her style of teaching - she took the time to understand how my body was performing and makes sure I adapt to movements to get the best results. Classes are fun and energetic. My core strength and flexibility has improved and age old issues of shoulder and hamstring problems have dissipated. I am also starting to see my muscles elongating and am loving the feeling of being taller after class.
I’ve been doing Barre classes with Tamsyn from Port de Barre for several months now and can’t believe what a difference it has made to my body. Within just a few weeks (doing 2 sessions a week) I noticed it was whittling away my stubborn post-baby love-handles when nothing else has been able to, and it has made me leaner and stronger. I love the challenge of each class and always leave on a high. Tamsyn is clear, concise and safe in her teaching and I can honestly say she is the best Barre teacher I have ever had.
Tamsyn really is a great teacher, striking the perfect balance between the technical side of barre ensuring we really feel the burn and maintaining a fast paced, fun class. I leave each session most definitely stronger, taller and in touch with muscles I never knew I had.
I have spent years working out in gyms and doing long distance running, but now I’m in my 60’s I have realised I need something different and more beneficial for my body. Port de Barre has had a transforming effect on my body, teaching me to be aware of my posture at all times and strengthening my core. Barre has also helped with my back and hip issues along with my morning stiffness and I now practice three times a week.......I see Barre as part of my life........Port de Barre are amazing
