    The first class was Barre Burn. The instructor, Morgan, will make you work at the barre. This class was 100 percent female, but males are more than welcomed to participate.

    Unlike other barre classes, this class is taught on a hardwood floor which can make it a little tough, but you have the option to wear sneakers during the class. Utilizing props like sliders and weighted balls, this 45-minute class had us sweating. Plus, the Base X main studio room is really nice to workout in.
