We let you know in May that Avant Barre was soon opening its first dedicated studio in SOMA at the former Ma Maison space, and the wait is now over. The fitness folks have quickly whipped the space into shape and are opening on Wednesday. Avant Barre previously offered classes at the Metronome dance studio, and starting on Wednesday at 5:30pm it will officially operate out of 592 3rd Street at Brannan.
The workout, created by dancer Char "Nini" Gueco, includes a heavy dose of cardio and core-strengthening exercises. Check out our review of the sweat fest (it made Esther discover muscles she'd never felt before). And if you're hoping for a Victoria's Secret model body this summer? Avant Barre is a must.
