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:
-Quarry Bend, Utah
-San Francisco, California
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."
