|WHAT IS CARDIO BARRE...
Cardio Barre is the first ever routine of its kind: A high energy/no impact exercise class that combines barre work and light weights with continual fat burning motion. Central to the workout are toning and resistance exercises for the butt, legs, torso and arms to sculpt muscles and elongate the appearance of your body. When you work at the barre you have a sense of center and balance that allows you to concentrate on the muscle group you are working on. The body is worked as both a coordinated whole and in isolated muscle groups, maximizing the body's full potential.
You’ll have fun while getting in shape in a comfortable, personalized atmosphere.

Faced with a dance career ending injury, Richard Giorla refused to give up exercise. Despite a crushing hip injury, Giorla wanted to keep moving at a pace that made sense for his body, yet no exercise routine met his needs.
Giorla wasn’t alone. With years of experience in the fitness industry, he witnessed an alarming rate of injury caused by high impact workouts. He also noticed many injured athletes and everyday people struggling to find a workout that fit their body, injury and motivation. Giorla saw the need for a high energy workout, offering cardio yet without the impact on the body, offering a much safer work out. Giorla used his dance background to design a workout that combined the two, and created what is today, CARDIO BARRE®. This barre based cardio workout is unlike any other exercise class offered in other gyms and studios.
In 2001, Richard Giorla came up with the answer when he created and opened his first Cardio Barre in Studio City, California. Richard has increased his database to over 20,000 clients, including a slew of celebrity endorsements. With the ever-growing success of the studio and rewards of hearing the life changing experiences from his clientele, Giorla franchised his fitness method and concept by developing the Cardio Barre Franchise, LLC. in 2007.
