I really love Splendid Barre because I get exercise without feeling that dread of going to work out.

Even though I’m new I really love Splendid Barre because I get exercise without feeling that dread of going to work out.  I also had serious concerns about hurting myself in CrossFit and I did hurt myself a few times at another place that does high-impact workouts.  I especially love the calm, friendly and relaxing atmosphere.  I feel like out of all the workouts I’ve tried it’s the best fit for me.

Each class kicks butt, and the classes are never the same. I love how the staff takes the time to meet first-time clients, and knows regulars by name.

I love the education Karlie gives her students, her health and wellness knowledge, and background. Each class kicks butt, and the classes are never the same. I love how the staff takes the time to meet first-time clients, and knows regulars by name. They are real and authentic.

I love how I can see a difference in my posture. My whole body feels longer, leaner, and toned.

I just love Splendid Barre! From the first time I took Karlie’s class I was hooked. I actually danced ballet as a young girl, and have loved the yoga and pilates classes I took over the years. Splendid Barre combines all 3! I love how I can see a difference in my posture. My whole body feels longer, leaner, and toned

Everyone is so positive and constantly tries to help you do your best. It’s a great place to work out and build friendships!

Splendid Barre is amazing!! I’ve gone to a few of the 5:30 am classes and the energy brought from the instructors is crazy! Everyone is so positive and constantly trying to help you do the best you can do. They have so many modifications to make sure everyone can do something. It’s a great place to work out and build friendships! I highly recommend!

Splendid Barre is amazing! As someone without a dance background, I wasn’t sure it would be a good fit, but I’m so happy I tried it!

Splendid Barre is amazing! As someone without a dance background, I wasn’t sure it would be a good fit, but I’m so happy I tried it! Each class has a similar format, but each instructor has a little different style and class feel. I really appreciate how all the instructors are focused on making sure you get a good whole body workout, while making it fun and keeping you healthy.

Amazing class, amazing instructors! Since starting Barre, I really feel so much better, both mentally and physically!

Amazing class, amazing instructors! Since starting Barre a few months ago, I really feel so much better, both mentally and physically! I always told myself that I’d do my home DVD workouts because it’s just easier with 2 little ones, and would go through spurts of doing them, but that way of working out just doesn’t work for me…too many distractions, and too easy to just not do it! I also don’t like the gym atmosphere. I need set class times, a group setting, and someone to push me! This Barre class does all of that for me, and in a fun way, too. It’s a full body workout. I’m also always amazed at how quick the 55 min class times goes! Love it ❤️

Fantastic space and energy, encouraging and fun instructors, awesome music choices…you name it, they do it stupendously.

Yooooooooooo, they are not messing around at this studio! I just started this week and I’m blown away. Fantastic space and energy, encouraging and fun instructors, awesome music choices…you name it, they do it stupendously. And don’t even get me started on the workouts! Love how they mix it up everyday and it taps into muscle groups I didn’t even realize were there. 😂 👍 Loving it! 🙋‍♀️ 🧘‍♀️💃 🏋️‍♀️

Great workout, beautiful studio, amazing instructors and fabulous prices! Locally owned studio that offers a great low-impact, full-body workout every time!

Great workout, beautiful studio, amazing instructors and fabulous prices! Locally owned studio that offers a great low-impact, full-body workout every time! Classes all have a similar format, but every class is different. Instructors each have their own style and I enjoy the differences in teaching and playlist selection.

Mornings at Splendid Barre Corvallis are my favorite way to start the day. I haven’t been able to run as much as I used to lately due to injury and I’m so glad I have found a workout that makes me feel so good. I love the full body workout with a little bit of cardio thrown in and lots of balance. Bonus, when I do run I feel so much stronger.

I get a full body workout every single time, AND I get to do so with an incredible community of people!

I fell in love with Splendid Barre when my sister invited my mom and I to try it with her. My favorite thing about barre is that I get a full body workout every single time, AND I get to do so with an incredible community of people and family!

I’ve lost inches, gained muscle, and improved my posture…I also just completely enjoy doing it. I always leave class happier than when I walked through the door.

I love being active and outdoors, but I have always struggled with my weight and posture. Four years ago I had a breast reduction, which helped my posture but I still had a long way to go. It wasn’t until Splendid Barre where I learned to activate my core and elongate my body that I actually saw and felt a huge improvement in my posture and in loss of back pain. Though I’ve lost inches, gained muscle, and greatly improved my posture, more importantly Barre has given me the tools to maintain a strong and healthy body, where unlike fad diets and other workout systems I’ve tried, is now an attainable life goal. That being said, I also just completely enjoy doing it. I always leave class happier than when I walked through the door.

Alexis Doyle

I love that it’s a full body workout, but that it still feels fun! I always leave feeling better then when I arrived.

Splendid Barre is amazing! It challenges you in many ways, but you can do it at your level. And you always feel better when you leave.

A kind and welcoming community, fun and varied workouts and great music!

Karlie and crew helped me stay active and fit throughout my pregnancy—plenty of squats for this +40 year old really helped with childbirth. A kind and welcoming community, fun and varied workouts and great music!

Jessica Dukes

There is always so much energy in the room and I never fail to feel rejuvenated after I take class.

There’s nothing quite like listening to some great music and getting your sweat on with the amazing Splendid Barre community. There is always so much energy in the room and I never fail to feel rejuvenated after I take class. It’s a fun full-body workout that encourages mindfulness and self-confidence, how couldn’t you love it?

Hannah Downing

Splendid Barre is amazing because it’s a full body workout that physically sculpts my muscles and mentally rejuvenates me.

Splendid Barre is amazing because it’s a full body workout that physically sculpts my muscles and mentally rejuvenates me. I have done yoga, Pilates, and dance for years and it is wonderful to have a workout that incorporates all of them. I started the instructor training in my second trimester of pregnancy, and I’m so happy to have found an exercise class that is low impact yet challenging, so I can have a fit pregnancy and get my body back into amazing shape after the baby is born. I love being able to teach classes and guide others through the Splendid Barre workouts I am so passionate about!”

I love that I get an absolutely killer workout that increases my poise, and flexibility, and really defines my muscles in a sleek way. I love it in particular because it is locally owned, and the sense of community in it is fun and inspiring.

I feel so much stronger now, and more confident because my back pain is definitely subsiding, and I feel stronger mentally and physically.

I went into this class (cautiously) with lower back pain. That was a few months ago. Now, I’m still very careful with my back…. but I now know how to protect it by strengthening my core muscles. I feel so much stronger now, and more confident because my back pain is definitely subsiding, and I feel stronger mentally and physically. Thank you so much to our amazing instructors! Love you all!

Kelly Gerding

I was increasingly unhappy with my appearance and lack of energy. After my third workout I started noticing I felt so much better afterwards.

You’ve heard my story before; I was an athlete in high school and forgot to keep taking care of myself when I became a mother. On top of that I’ve had five surgeries on the same knee! So the times I did try to wholeheartedly throw myself back into exercise I ended up in too much pain to continue. I was increasingly unhappy with my appearance and lack of energy. Enter Splendid Barre. After my third workout I started noticing I felt so much better afterwards. The huge focus on proper form, not pushing things that don’t feel right, and all the variations for exercises made it so I was finally not in too much pain to continue with an exercise regimen. Plus I’ve lost 20 pounds! Splendid Barre has given me the ability to be my best, healthiest me.

Krystal Napier

The classes are definitely challenging, but I love how much stronger I have become.

After doing barre a few times per week for only a few months, I’ve noticed an increase in core strength and balance, and my chiropractor commented that my low back is doing especially well.  He said he has clients that have really improved after taking barre and don’t need to see him as often. The classes are definitely challenging but I love how much stronger I have become. Thank you so much, Karlie, for bringing Splendid Barre to Corvallis!

Linda Ksenzulak

All I need to do is show up and I am guaranteed to strengthen my entire body, my mind, and my sense of community.

As a distance runner, I was not aware of how weak my postural and stabilizing muscles were until I took a Splendid Barre class—Oh my stars, was I sore the next day! It would have been easy to just go to one class and be done, but there was something that kept bringing me back to Splendid Barre day after day, week after week. Whether it’s using the resistance bands, holding a modified plank, breathing through the cardio fix or sharing the barre with someone new, Splendid Barre has something to offer to everyone at any fitness level. What I love about Splendid Barre is that all I need to do is show up and I am guaranteed to strengthen my entire body, my mind, and my sense of community in under one hour.

Sarah Sorenson

I love that Splendid Barre works on building good posture and ergonomics. It’s a great workout, and I enjoy the community.

I love that Splendid Barre works on building good posture and ergonomics when doing exercises. I used to do similar workouts at home but always felt back pain afterwards. I love that as instructors, you help us and remind us to have correct form in order to save our back and joints! It’s a great workout, and I enjoy the community.

Rachel Stone

It’s a very welcoming environment. I feel it is a complete workout…I can’t recommend this place enough. I look forward to going.

I started doing splendid barre for the past few weeks. After having my second child six months ago, I needed to get out and get started to exercise. I love going to splendid barre. It’s a very welcoming environment that moves at a pace that you will enjoy. I love getting my heart rate going and moving my body. I feel it is a complete workout. They also have a child care few times of the week and it helps a lot with babies/small kids to be cared by their staff while you exercise. I can’t recommend this place enough. I look forward to going. Thank you splendid barre team!

I love the community and friendships that I’ve made. Also, I like that good posture and form is emphasized.

I love the community and friendships that I’ve made. Also, I like that good posture and form is emphasized and that it’s low impact which means it is a great option for a long term form of exercise.

All of the instructors are super sweet and make you feel welcome even if you’re new. Upon leaving my first time, I was the perfect amount of exhausted and energized.

Great prices, clean facility and equipment, educated instructors, good music, atmosphere and a great full-body workout! Karlie is a sweet, energetic and helpful instructor/owner, with a PhD in Exercise Sports Science, she is highly knowledgeable about proper exercises and technique. All of the instructors are super sweet and make you feel welcome even if you’re new to Barre like I was. Upon leaving my first time, I was the perfect amount of exhausted and energized. The workout is low-impact and great for any athletic level! It’s a combo of Yoga, Pilates and Ballet (but not in a twirling around sort of way). I’ve lost weight and feel so much tighter and toned just from taking a few classes…but best of all I feel so much happier! I would highly recommend Splendid Barre to my best friends and strangers alike, you won’t be disappointed!

Instructors are well trained, and even with a recovering knee they worked with me to modify the workouts.

I love Splendid Barre because it’s a fun, challenging workout that leaves me feeling strong and energized. The exercises are inspired by activities I enjoy such as dance, yoga, and Pilates, and they’re extremely effective without putting strain on my joints. It’s been a joy to delve deeper into the world of barre through the instructor training, and I’m very excited to share what I’ve learned and to help people experience the awesomeness that is Splendid Barre!

Splendid Barre has been a great exercise class not only physically, but also socially and emotionally. I am continually challenged to do more reps with better form which helps my mental discipline.

Karlie is such a sweet and motivating instructor. She gave a lot of options. I absolutely love this place.

My very out-of-shape self just finished my first class at Splendid Barre and I LOVED IT! Karlie is such a sweet and motivating instructor. She gave a lot of options for me to choose from to make the exercises easier on my bod. Her cueing was clear and well-timed. Karlie is also probably the most knowledgeable movement instructor I have ever encountered; she pays close attention to form and biomechanics to help lower the risk for injury and to recruit muscles that need strengthening. Each time she shared a suggestion with me I felt more muscles turn on which kept me more stable through the exercises. The class moves at a quick pace to keep the heart rate up and it closes with some great yoga sequences. I absolutely love this place and look forward to returning (after I’m no longer hobbling around due to soreness) and getting stronger!

Maria Ross

Splendid Barre feeds my soul… I feel stronger and more focused after each class.

Splendid Barre feeds my soul. It’s my time to focus on me. The classes have a perfect balance of challenge and encouragement; working on strength and flexibility. I feel stronger and more focused after each class. The high quality of the instructors, and their intentional choreography for the class, make that happen. It’s splendid!!
