You will have a Physique 57 Barre Certification Advisor supporting you along the way. This person will be your point of contact and host weekly forums to foster connection with your fellow students.

Our entry level course provides a comprehensive overview of the Physique 57 method. You will also learn basic group fitness teaching fundamentals, anatomical cueing, and injury and pre/postnatal modifications.

Our online training platform has over 100 videos accompanied by written instruction, learning paths, and interactive forums. There are quizzes to ensure comprehension as you complete each module, and you will be evaluated at the end of the course on your delivery of a Sculpt-level class.

Yes! Class-taking is an important component of our Barre Certification program. The most prevalent learning style is kinesthetic, which means many of us learn best by doing.

Class-taking and observation hours are included in the total 80-hr. estimate to complete your certification.
