This Week: Meegan Gregg of Barre3
Don’t be fooled by the studio’s ballet-inspired name; you won't hear any Tchaikovsky blasting at Barre3. The workout classes, which are held in studios around the world, are a personal favorite of mine — a go-to for sneaking in a 10-minute fitness quickie or taking a break from my cardio-heavy rotation of indoor cycling, metabolic conditioning, and running. Barre3's hybrid workout fuses the best of yoga, Pilates, and ballet barre work, using isometric holds, tiny movements, and low-impact cardio moves to elevate your heart rate. (I’m totally guilty of busting out some of the Barre3 signature moves while waiting at the airport or in the never-ending Trader Joe’s line — yes, I'm that girl.)
Meegan Gregg is a star instructor who relocated to NYC (from Barre3's flagship studio in Portland) to open the Big Apple’s inaugural boutique. “I love a blend of electronic and hip-hop for my classes," says Gregg. "And, of course, a little Beyoncé; she always brings the fierce factor.” Below is Gregg's playlist, complete with a remix of Queen Bey’s "Ego.” It's guaranteed to keep you pumped from barre to bar.
