Recommended barre workout tools

We receive many inquiries about recommended products to enhance classes and exercises. As educators certifying instructors worldwide, IBBFA Barre Certification has compiled a list of the top workout tools for instructors.

Portable barres

For portable options, Vita Vibe comes highly recommended. With various styles available, you’re sure to find one that suits your needs. Prices range from $115 to about $300.

It’s important to note the distinction between freestanding and floor-mounted barres. Freestanding ones may tip with excessive lateral force and should not serve as a crutch for balance.

Our pick for freestanding:

Freestanding fit barre from Vita Vibe for $189.95.

Handheld 1-3 pound weights

Our pick:

CAP Barbell Neoprene Coated Dumbbell from $1.99. Note: solid in singles! These inexpensive weights feel comfortable in your hand and are easy to store- the hexagonal shape prevents them from rolling.
