About The Barre Code

The Barre Code is a boutique fitness concept designed to help our clients find their strongest selves. Our emphasis on positivity, motivation, and empowerment encourages our national community to celebrate their bodies and live by The Barre Code. With a wide variety of class styles, custom-curated playlists, and an emphasis on positive motivation, The Barre Code is the most efficient and results-driven fitness program available. Go beyond the barre with our comprehensive program focusing on three unique pillars of physical and mental wellness: cardio, strength training, and restoration. Clients of all fitness levels and abilities are welcome, and our wide variety of class styles and custom-curated playlists lead to a unique experience that has every client leaving the studio feeling stronger and more confident than ever.

Values & History

Co-founders Jillian and Ariana launched The Barre Code with a shared passion for personal training and empowerment through positivity. They also shared a strong dedication to helping women and men transform into their strongest, most confident selves. When their first studio was launched, the business-savvy entrepreneurs continued double duty, working full-time at their demanding corporate positions while teaching the eight classes offered daily at the studio. The initial response to the concept was overwhelming — members wanted to revolutionize their lives with The Barre Code. Within six months of opening, Jillian and Ariana officially parted ways with their corporate paths to pursue their potential-turned-powerhouse: an innovative one-stop-shop dedicated to inner and outer strength.

Franchising since 2012, we have grown from the inaugural location in Chicago's River North neighborhood to nearly 50 prosperous locations across 17 states with thousands of members while generating national media coverage. As The Barre Code continues to expand, one powerful consistency remains: a dedication to helping transform people into their strongest, fittest selves while supporting franchise owners to reach their personal goals.

We live by a code. The Barre Code. We believe in our bodies. Our abilities. Our strength. We accept the differences that make us beautiful and strive for beauty that makes a difference. Every day we work hard to realize our potential. To dig deep and discover what we are capable of. To earn our bodies. We are relentless. We live to evolve. To exceed our own extraordinary expectations. We live by The Barre Code.

Industry Performance

The Barre Code is transforming the enormous $390 billion health, wellness, and fitness industry.

As a franchise named to Entrepreneur's prestigious Franchise 500 list for two years in a row, The Barre Code is proving that our balanced approach to fitness is both a worthwhile endeavor for our clients and an excellent opportunity for franchisees.
