Powering Change

More than a decade ago, Fred DeVito coined the line “If it doesn’t challenge you, it doesn't change you. 

Along with his life partner, Elisabeth Halfpapp, they created CoreBarreFit (CBF) to power a global community and help everyone realize their own potential. Through livestream and in-studio barre, yoga and restorative stretch classes, CBF helps power the change that so many are after...relaxing minds, promoting longevity and boosting spirits. 


Just show up and the CBF team will keep you on track towards whatever goal you’re after.
