Barreworks, which introduced to the UK barre and ballet-based fitness exercises that have their origins in the Lotte Berk method and the New York City Ballet Workout, is launching its first REPs recognised Barre Instructor training programme that has been developed by its founder, Vicki Anstey. “After ten years in development, I am delighted to introduce our teaching techniques to the wider market, with the launch of our REPs recognised training programme,” Anstey said. “This is a fantastic opportunity for fitness professionals to gain an in-depth understanding of barre exercise from a leading studio and professional recognition in a rapidly expanding market.

“This is not the first barre training programme on the market, but it is the most thorough. We guide and support each individual through the theoretical and practical elements of the course and our certification means that they have reached a gold standard of teaching. They will even have the opportunity to teach clients as part of their training, this is not a ‘classroom’ course.”
