What is at the heart of UpBeat? What makes it BEAT?

  1. MUSIC


The end.

In all seriousness, the fitness world is ever changing and evolving, and traditional barre classes were losing numbers due to being overly serious or focused and to be frank - boring. The creators at UpBeat wanted to utilize the things we loved about traditional barre while adding a modern twist to help participants work hard while still having a blast. The secret? MUSIC. It's much like viewing a black and white silent film in full color with surround sound for the first time - creating a truly MIND BLOWING experience!

At UpBeat we LOVE our science. (We have to throw it in at every chance we get!). Did you know research shows that working out to high-tempo popular tunes reduces the rate of perceived effort while enhancing performance?
