Alexander and Barbara offer a plethora of barre experience in their classes. Their high level of many years of teaching is exquisite with details, which then translates into long lasting results physically and mentally. They are knowledgeable experts in the barre industry with attention to detail, position, alignment, and creativity. They are constantly evolving their expertises…and most of all, you truly do have fun in their classes.
“As an orthopedic physical therapist, I strongly endorse Barre None as my go-to for core stabilization and strength training to develop long lean muscles! This hour long low-impact, high energy class is jam-packed with targeted exercises that build muscle mass, cinch your waist, and improve your posture! Alexander DeJong, a professional dancer and barre method expert, and his team of instructors, target both large and small muscle groups, including shoulder and hip stabilizers, often overlooked with traditional workouts. I 100% credit this dynamic class for maintaining a healthy back. Everyone would benefit from adding Barre None to their workout routine!!”
"Why would you choose Barre None over other exercise methods? Here’s the answer. It’s a workout that systematically strengthens your entire body. Alexander DeJong, the instructor, carefully watches that you avoid the possibility of injury. His high personal interaction dramatically increases one’s motivation. His choice of music definitely pushes everything in a positive direction. And there’s a sprinkling of humor that keeps the class moving along in such a way that you are adequately distracted from the physical challenges your body is experiencing. The accumulation of these 60-minute Barre None workouts result in a strong body, increased endurance and overall well being. As difficult as the workouts are I truly wish I had the time to take Alexander’s class every day of the week."
"As a “barre rookie” amidst rock stars who have been doing this program for decades, I felt intimidated coming into this retreat. Alexander and Julie made me feel welcome and comfortable from the first moment I met them. They coached me during class and gradually built up my confidence which has enabled me to return home and walk into a class with the confidence I need to keep improving.
The Four Seasons in Costa Rica is quite simply, spectacular. The accommodations, the setting, the beaches and pools and most importantly their team members made us feel special and pampered the entire time.
I highly recommend this amazing retreat and encourage people of all fitness levels to give it a try.
You will love Alexander and Julie in addition to feeling healthier after the barre classes and relaxed after our daily yoga sessions on the beach overlooking the Pacific Ocean!
“Pura Vida”…a phrase in Costa Rica that means “simple life” is how we all felt as we departed this amazing experience."
" I recently attended the BARRE NONE retreat in Costa Rica at the Four Seasons Hotel in Papagayo. It was a truly fantastic couple of days spent making new friends, enjoying a beautiful country and amazing resort and lastly but just as important- benefitting from Alexander and Julie’s expertise with both a morning Barre class and evening Restorative class. Our days were filled with health, wellness and good fun! I look forward to doing this again with them but next time I won’t cut my time short by forgetting my passport!!!"
"I just returned from a Barre None retreat and it was magical. Gorgeous location and a relaxed, friendly, easygoing vibe. Alexander is a perfect host as well as an expert teacher who can accommodate everyone from first-timers to the most advanced barre students. New friendships were sparked and old friendships deepened. I generally stay away from fitness retreats but I’m so glad I decided to join this one. It was a blissful week during which I felt welcomed to participate in all activities but also fully independent and free to follow my own path. I’ll be back!"
I had an amazing BARRE NONE trip to Costa Rica! Exceptional sunny morning workouts and evening workouts at sunset! I didn’t expect to get to know new friends in just 5 days. Bonding through workouts!
