Welcome to Racked's Fitness Week: five days of workout coverage, so that you can start your New Year's resolutions off right.
Clockwise from left: Bar Method, Cardio Barre, Physique 57, Xtend Barre, Pure Barre, Pop Physique.
Following yesterday's Best Yoga Studio poll, we're calling on you to tell us which LA barre studio is a cut above the rest. There are tons of places that feature this ballet-inspired workout, but don't assume they're all the same. Each one is unique in its own way, offering a variety of toning techniques via a stationary handrail (aka a barre!) that are meant to make you long, lean and bulk-free.
Now, on to the six dazzling candidates. We have Hollywood favorite The Bar Method, Ashley Simpson's go-to Cardio Barre, our 2012 Hottest Trainer winner's spot Physique 57, and three 2013 Hottest Trainer contestants' stomping grounds: Pop Physique, Pure Barre and Xtend Barre.
Which barre do you hit most? You have 24 hours to vote. Update: This poll is now closed.
