What is CoreBarreFit?

CoreBarreFit (CBF), created by Elisabeth Halfpapp and Fred DeVito, legends and pioneers in barre fitness, offers a range of classes, trainings & certifications, industry consulting, and related content for those looking to safely begin, challenge or refine their fitness regimen. They bring over 75 years of combined experience to their classes. 

Based in New York City and the Hamptons, CBF is exclusively led by Elisabeth who is currently offering Zoom barre classes (both group & private), studio classes, online barre teacher training, and workshops.

Fred is a guest teacher for select CBF classes as well as one-on-one Thai Stretch sessions. He continues his work with Exhale as Executive Director of Teacher Training and master teacher offering on-demand classes, online training as well as industry speaking engagements.


Meet Fred

Fred grew up as an active participant in all sports and could always be found on the athletic field. Armed with a BS in Physical Education and Health, Fred embarked on a career teaching Phys Ed in public school and offering personal training & group fitness instruction at local health clubs. He later joined his wife and partner, Elisabeth and the Lotte Berk Method (LBM) team, as the world’s first male barre teacher.
 After nearly two decades with LBM, Fred was led to a new opportunity with Exhale, as one of the founding partners, where he is presently Executive Director of Teacher Training.

Meet Elisabeth

Elisabeth began her barre fitness journey as an associate in Dance Education at the School of the Hartford Ballet
. She became a pioneer leading the Lotte Berk Method (LBM) in New York City, Hamptons, and Los Angeles, attracting an eager audience looking to adopt a new fitness regimen. After more than two decades, Elisabeth became one of the founding partners at Exhale, where she developed the propriety barre class as well as the cardio and yoga programs. With her sights set on leading her own classes and training curriculum, Elisabeth started CoreBarreFit in 2019.
