Full Out Barre

I started Full Out Barre (FOB) after this little barre class gained momentum at several local fitness clubs. Now brick and mortar, FOB is a fitness studio franchise housed by dance studios and is the first nationally accredited fitness brand from Arkansas. We provide a judgment-free workout community for all fitness levels, blending barre and high intensity interval training to burn calories (550-800 per class!) with fun music and positive motivation. We now have a location in Bryant, owned by Ashley Trover, and a downtown location coming soon housed by Ballet Arkansas.
