ATHLEISURE LIST: NYC, BROOKLYN + GLOBAL
Andrea Rogers is the founder and Creator of Xtend Barre. Launched 10 years ago, she began with one location in Florida and began teaching classes that grew to waitlists and franchises in the US, Canada, UK and Australia. She is a former professional dancer, choreographer and certified Pilates instructor. In 2008 Rogers designed the Xtend Barre workout by merging elements of dance, pilates and ballet to create an adrenaline-fueled formula that strengthens, lengthens and chisels your body.
Classes are 55 minutes, set to upbeat playlists and incorporate moves that focus on your upper body, lower body, core, flexibility and strength. Where other barre programs focus only on the small movements, Xtend Barre's diverse programs focus on movement of the whole body delivering cardio, strength, endurance, and flexibility.
Beyond the signature Xtend Barre class, you can take Pilates, TRX, HITT classes as well.
Xtend Tribeca offers amenities from The Honest Company to freshen up before and after class. Essentia Water is also available for purchase.
