"I want to let you know that the Xercizer/ Barre format is a huge hit. I never knew a demi-plie could work such wonders for the lower body. My legs look better now at 49 then ever before. I've also been incorporating the standing foot work into mat and hybrid as well. Thank you for the awesome formats."

In the class I took, each student lay on a Reformer-type machine that uses pulleys and springs for resistance …Each repetition demanded extreme concentration.
