is not just the fitness- flavor-of-the-month, but rather a cutting edge, body-burning, stretching & strengthening system that will change the way you view working out, while shaping you into your image of bodily perfection.
CARDIO BARRE® is the essence of a great workout. Form + Function = Fitness I love it!
CARDIO BARRE® is always there in the mornings to wake me up and make me sweat! It is guaranteed to give you that good sore!

I've been taking CARDIO BARRE® classes for 3 years now and my body, mind, and soul craves this class. I've tried many workouts and nothing shapes and tones my entire body (especially my booty) as rapidly as CARDIO BARRE®!
CARDIO BARRE® makes exercising fun because I get to feel like a ballerina at the same time.

CARDIO BARRE® is my workout of choice in Los Angeles, particularly after having competed on Dancing with the Stars to maintain a lean body. I was thrilled to find CARDIO BARRE® Quarry Bend location while shooting a movie in Utah and didn't hesitate to make the 45 minute drive to take classes. Everything about Quarry Bend's studio was just like being back in Los Angeles and the teachers rocked the workout. Thanks for making me feel at home!
Coming from a dancing background, CARDIO BARRE® is my favorite way to workout! It feels great to be physically challenged at the ballet barre while doing a combination of techniques used by dancers. The high-energy instructors keep me motivated to push a little harder every class. I've been going to CARDIO BARRE® for 4 years now and always have fun! I also love that I can go to a class with friends who don't have any dance experience and know they'll be able to keep up.
CARDIO BARRE® is the best way to get an amazing full body workout.... while having fun!
I love CARDIO BARRE® because I KNOW my body will definitely change as a result of it. Even going three times a week, I have noticeable, definite improvement in my body's shape and tone. It's great.
Having been a dancer before acting, I tend to look for forms of exercise that are both a great physical challenge as well as stimulating and fun. Richard's CARDIO BARRE® classes are the perfect combination. This is the first place I come to when I want to get in shape and stay in shape.

As an adult who trained in ballet all of her childhood, I found it very difficult to stick with a workout that would let me still feel and look like a dancer without the pressures (and sometimes embarrassment) of a dance studio. CARDIO BARRE® gave me a reason to want to get up in the morning and I always leave feeling like I just had a great time at a dance club while working up a good sweat. That and the deepest burn you have ever felt are what keep me coming back.
Nothing else works for my body so efficiently & with such noticeable changes.
I found that I had hit a plateau and my body needed that extra few inches of added toning and lengthening. Yoga and Pilates didn't have enough cardio for me and pure cardio classes were not helping me achieve the muscle definition look that I wanted. Richard's CARDIO BARRE® is the perfect mix of everything I need and with my consistency in attending his classes, my body is better now than it was in my 20's. I have firm definition, don't look bulky and carry my body more like that of a dancer. Richard, and his team, are motivating and fun from the moment you walk through their doors and now I think it's only a matter of time until Richard and CARDIO BARRE® explode with popularity nationwide. I'm just thankful I found CARDIO BARRE® and, finally have the body I've only dreamed of!
It's like the class calls me to get over there! It works every part of my body without the kind of impact that feels damaging. The teacher Richard seems to have eyes all around his head. He takes great care in the students. He notices form and I'm amazed how he doesn't miss anything no matter how large the class is and everyone is being looked after by him to secure good form. CARDIO BARRE® is great for cardio, great for stretching, great for sculpting, and great for what feels like, to me, ... every inch of my body. I have seen changes already and I look forward to the next class!
CARDIO BARRE® proves that you can have a great time while getting in fantastic shape! After the first class I was completely hooked and even though I've taken classes for several years now, I continue to be challenged and inspired by the tough exercises and incredible staff.
Anyone who's looking for a whole body workout, core strengthening, increased flexibility and longer, stronger muscles will find it all at CARDIO BARRE®. Richard and his instructors are inspiring and informed, and I'm so thrilled to have discovered a fun workout that delivers such great results so quickly! Great music, too... I love how I feel after a CARDIO BARRE® class!
An easy-going studio, filled with fun classes and encouraging instructors who make us all feel as if we're simply one tendu away from being ballerinas.
I started doing CARDIO BARRE® after my spinal surgery. I hoped to strengthen my spine & try to prevent any further problems. I got so much more! I am stronger, leaner & more flexible than I have been in decades. CARDIO BARRE® not only changed my body, it changed my life. I feel healthier & stronger than ever before... but more importantly, I feel more confident, and sexier. CARDIO BARRE® really can change your life. It has done wonders for mine!
CARDIO BARRE® has been one of my favorite workouts for years. I really enjoy the energy coming from everyone in the room. No matter which class you take, the instructor, the music, and the format will leave you with a fast, fun, full body workout every time.
i've been taking CARDIO BARRE® classes for about a year now and in all my years of searching for great classes, I've never found one like this! I can't get here often enough. It's really firmed my glutes and helps tone everything. I have also been able to keep it up with a heart-monitor during pregnancy!
I never give testimonials but I am so grateful to Richard Giorla and his team for what they have done for me. I am shocked at the changes in my physique over the past year and I wish I had discovered this ten years ago. The CARDIO BARRE® program has actually changed the way my bones stack up by retraining all the connective tissue and muscle. I am beginning to look like a dancer!

Having danced since I was six years old, I've had a devotion to maintaining physical fitness, especially the beauty and symmetry of a dancer's lines and body. Richard's CARDIO BARRE® workout class combines all that I love, strength, flexibility, grace and overall health. The joy of seeing very young people all the way through to people in their seventies is a great gift for all of us.

Everyone knows I love to dance, but before Dancing With the Stars I would get my fix at CARDIO BARRE®. Having fun is the ONLY way to lose weight and for me that was CARDIO BARRE®. It helped me lose over 50 pounds. Just because there are skinny, very in shape, people in the photos on this web site I am here to tell you the classes are FULL of all shapes and sizes. The instructors push you to push yourself. You leave feeling like you danced up a mountain!
I have been coming to CARDIO BARRE® for 6 years. It is an amazing workout that tones, tightens, and is so fun at the same time! I am a huge fan!
If I could describe CARDIO BARRE® in one sentence, it would be: THE BEST WORKOUT YOU WILL FIND. ANYWHERE. I was a professional Broadway dancer in New York City for 11 years. I LOVED dancing and was in the best shape of my life. When I moved to Los Angeles, my focus turned to other things, and I lost my dancing fever. Two years ago, I found CARDIO BARRE®. During my very first class, I may or may not have been smiling the entire time. This workout is an absolute blast. But don't get me wrong, you will work your a** off. And what a pretty a** you will have because of it. My body has absolutely changed. I've toned up, slimmed down, and I could kick some serious butt at this point. Every single instructor has something different and inspiring to contribute. You leave class feeling amazing and proud of your hard work.
