Barre 3, a Portland-based global leader in the ballet barre fitness movement, has opened another studio, this time in Lake Oswego’s Kruse Village. Sadie and Chris Lincoln founded barre3 in Portland in 2008, and there now are nearly 100 studios nationwide, nine of which are in Oregon, according to the barre3 website. This new location at 4859 Meadows Road, Suite 167, joins another here in Lake Oswego on B Avenue in offering barre3’s signature, 60-minute workouts and popular whole-body health philosophy to residents and workers throughout the area.

The workouts combine yoga, Pilates and ballet barre work and balance strength training, through isometric holds and small, one-inch movements with seamless recovery stretches. Sadie Lincoln says that unlike other barre-inspired workouts, barre3 incorporates larger movements with low-impact cardio to jumpstart the metabolism and re-oxygenate the body. Also unique to the brand, an array of modifications is offered for every posture, allowing all fitness levels to maximize the workout. As a fitness system and whole-health philosophy, barre3 helps clients to realize “amazing, lasting results — a strong, lean physique and happy, balanced mindset.”

The company also offers more than 250 streaming workouts online, hundreds of original recipes and nutritional programs, a mobile app and the “Love Your Lower Body” book and DVD series. Sadie Lincoln says her system has empowered hundreds of thousands of people to live well in body and mind.

The Kruse Village studio offers classes as early as 6 a.m. and as late as 7:30 p.m. Monday-Friday and morning classes on Saturday and Sunday. Childcare is available during many classes. Learn more online at barre3.com/studio-locations/portland-kruse-village.
