Studio City, CA (PRWEB) March 12, 2013 - After spreading locations across Southern California, Cardio Barre® is now expanding across the country. With its first location opened in 2001 in Studio City, Cardio Barre®, a high energy and no impact exercise class, quickly gained popularity as a franchise.
Now, says founder Richard Giorla, the brand is expanding into four new key markets:
Giorla would like to see more expansion into the rest of the country to help with the brand’s goal “to continually strengthen the presence and customer base of Cardio Barre®, as well as to motivate, inspire and transform lives on a greater scale."
The popularity of barre-style exercises has been on the rise over the past few years. Cardio Barre® takes a slightly different approach to helping clients stay fit and healthy. The exercise classes combine barre work with light weights for continual fat burning motion.
"After working in LA as a professional dancer and fitness model for SHAPE, I was lacking a full body workout geared to sculpt and maintain a dancer's body,” said Allison Steward, owner of the future Memphis location, “Once I found Cardio Barre®, I knew that no other Barre workout compared or integrated the motivational aspects in the same way. It was truly on a level of its own. Cardio Barre® will fill a void in the fitness offerings of Memphis."

Cardio Barre® also provides motivational support, and encourages clients to live healthier and more meaningful lifestyles.
