Intense Shape. Intense You.

The gliders are a great way to build intensity for the lower body and core. In this barre video you’ll see how the gliders can be incorporated in just about all sections of the Barre Intensity class. We’re a fan of the pretzel and bridge work towards the end of the class to work the glutes and hamstrings.
