Work-out: Conditioning Hybrid
Difficulty: Level 3.5
Next day soreness: 2
Duration: 55 min
Sweat Level:A little dewy

Amenities: Resistance band provided for class, but it’s pretty minimal in terms of amenities since it is a pop-up location
Requirements for class: Wear sneakers, bring a mat, water and a towel (optional on the towel)
Contrary to what you might think, this class is not a barre class. It’s more of a hybrid toning/conditioning class that uses a resistance band. Half the class was done standing up and half was done on a folded over yoga mat. The micro class was fine, but I’m really curious to see what their other classes are like – including barimacro and baribounce (which focuses around a trampoline.) Unfortunately, Bari only has permanent studios in NYC and Newport Beach at the moment so it doesn’t look like I’ll be finding out anytime soon.
