After much anticipation, Xtend Barre Old Town (1701 Duke Street, Alexandria, VA 22314) will open on Saturday, June 14th. The newest location of this global fitness franchise (with studios in the U.S., Canada and Brazil) is right in the heart of Old Town and walking distance from the King Street Metro (drivers beware…make sure to allot enough time to find street parking or park in a garage).
The lovely ladies at Xtend Barre Old Town hosted a fun sneak peek event last night, complete with a barre class taught by the founder of Xtend Barre herself, Andrea Rogers. A former professional dancer turned certified Pilates instructor, Andrea created a fun workout that blends dance choreography and Pilates principles. And it’s no joke – you will sweat, breathe, and feel the burn.
The studio itself is gorgeous and bright, with welcoming floors and chic lobby furniture. Studio owner Natalie Strahorn discovered barre while living in New York and is excited to bring her passion to the Old Town community. She and her staff graciously lavished us with goodies after class, including frozen yogurt from Yogurtini, juices from South Block Juice Co., cute barre tops and socks (available for purchase at the studio), and these delicious Barre bars.
