I’ve pretty much been allergic to the gym for my entire life. In fact, I still am. Luckily for me Blue Fusion Fitness isn’t a mere gym. It’s an ultra-supportive community of people interested in exercise. No judgement. No competition. No drama. Just hard work, fun, and encouragement. The stellar atmosphere comes from the amazing instructors and trickles down to the person putting in work next to you. No matter your fitness level or workout interest, BFF has a class for you: spin, yoga, barre, surfset, HIIT, TRX, and dance. With that amount of variety, you’ll never be bored or feel like you’re stuck in a routine. Beyond the great instructors and students, it needs to be mentioned that the facility is immaculate. It legit feels like a spa when you walk through the door. While you might not be going in to relax, you’ll feel amazing when your workout is complete. There have been plenty of times when I’ve felt less than great walking in the door, but I always feel happy and like a better person ready to tackle my day when I leave the building. I can’t think of a time when I haven’t left with a smile on my face. If you’re allergic to the gym/faceless chains and prefer to be around supportive people who truly care about your progress and well-being, look no further than Blue Fusion Fitness. More...

I've been coming here for about a year, and absolutely love it!  I've never really liked going to the gym until now - the instructors are fantastic, and there is a wide variety of classes.  Everyone, both instructors and fellow members, is extremely welcoming and supportive, while also challenging you to do your best.  This studio is perfect for everyone from the absolute beginner to the avid gym goer.  Check it out - schedule and prices (so unusual!) are on the website.#bluefusionfit More...

I've been coming here for about 4 months now. The instructors and staff create a welcoming and friendly environment that makes me excited to go workout. I love trying the different classes they offer, and the instructors always push you to get out of your comfort zone while respecting that you know your body's limits. More...

I have been attending classes at BFF since March of this year and have seen such a transformation in myself, not only physically but mentally as well! Blue Fusion Fitness has given me the confidence I was missing. There are a variety of classes to choose from, so you never get bored. From Barre to Spin to Yoga, even HIIT, TRX, Surf Set, Roll + Stretch, and Bounce, I have tried them all. I love that I can go to ONE FITNESS CENTER and get all the workouts I love, plus they are available for personal training too. The instructors are all amazing, very friendly and motivating. They have really helped me and made me feel at ease, especially with Spin and Yoga, which I was new to both practices. The owner Grace is so welcoming and she truly cares about each and every one of her clients! From my first day there, she’s always pushing me and encouraging me and because of that, I have come so far on my fitness journey. While my journey is not finished, I’m excited to continue taking classes in the newly renovated space and to get even stronger and more flexible! More...

The dance classes are wonderful. I'm totally addicted to the Dance2b classes. Wish I could do one everyday! They're the most wonderful mix of physical exercise, dance enjoyment, and keeping a sharp mind!

Amazing little studio in Waltham. I took the blue barre bounce class with Grace and loved all the jumping that was involved. It was a small class with 6 people in it. Grace helped me set up the barre on the trampoline, which is around your waist area. This is a cardio-centered class with lots of jumping up and down and side to side. We used weights for as part of an arm workout and barre section after each cardio portion of the class. Grace was great at keeping the energy up and the playlist was very upbeat and bouncy to go along with the class. The only thing I found weird was that you're facing the back wall and not the mirrors. The studio itself is in great shape. There are two rooms and they offer a variety of classes from barre, to spin, to a surf class. There are lots of different options for purchasing packages from a 5 or 10 pack class as well as membership options. I will definitely be back to try their surf class in the near future. The bathroom has lockers and showers (with towels and amenities). If you check in on Yelp, you can purchase 3 pairs of barre socks for $20! More...

I love coming to Blue Barre! There is a good variety of classes at convenient times so you can always find something that keeps you interested in coming. I have tried to commit to so many gyms and classes in the past and this is the only place that I have actually stuck with. I've been coming for over a year now and still love it. Plus, everyone at the studio is so wonderful and supportive of each other and it feels great to be a part of a community where everyone is committed to motivating each other to reach their fitness goals (even if that goal is simply to not be a couch potato!).

Being a member at Blue Barre has been life changing (which is the sentiment echoed by two other women yesterday while we waited for class to start). Grace and her staff take the time to get to know each client and make you feel as if you are the most important person in the class. Grace and her instructors are knowledgeable, challenging and fun. I love the wide variety of classes they offer, so there is something for everyone. I love the attention of the smaller class sizes since Grace has helped me with my form and consistently challenges me to strive for better form and alignment. I never worked out consistently prior to Blue Barre, but feeling like a part of a supportive community and seeing results has made all the difference. I really believe in this studio and have no need to go anywhere else ever again. More...

I am so thankful for Grace and Blue Barre. For the first time I have truly enjoyed working out! I've tried yoga, working out at the gym, spin, other barre studios. .you name it, and I've never found anything like Blue Barre. The classes and instructors are fabulous, but I have to say what makes this studio stand out is how welcoming Grace is. She knows the names of every member from your first visit and makes a point to welcome you each time. She's funny and enthusiastic in class. I also don't mind their cancellation policy because it keeps me committed to going to the class. Thank you Blue Barre!!! More...

Joining Blue Barre is truly one of the best things that I've done for myself! I started in May of 2017 and it has become an essential part of my life. Grace and her staff are fantastic! Everyone seems genuinely happy to be there both the staff and the clients. I really love that besides Barre there are so many other class options. Even with just the barre classes Grace mixes up her routines enough to keep workouts interesting. She continuously works the core muscles, while alternating between unique exercises that strengthen additional muscle groups throughout the body. She's always pushing us beyond our comfort levels but it's what we need to get the best results and it definitely works! If I'm not able to attend a class for a while, I notice results almost immediately after starting back up again. Within 2 classes not only do I feel a tightening throughout my body (especially my core) but I can begin to see it. Blue Barre offers many classes at different times starting from early in the morning to later evening classes. The 6am classes allow me to get a workout in before my kids are up and have to be out for the day. With so many classes offered daily I'm at least able to make 1 if not 2 classes each week. I always say early morning barre class is better than any cup of coffee! I leave feeling mentally clear and fully energized for the day. It's a great way to start off mornings year round and especially in the winter.It's also helpful that there are affordable package options so this leaves little pressure of when to attend a class if some weeks happen to get too hectic. With all of the class options I can easily create my own work out routines each week. I usually do a barre class 1-2x a week and then I use a Blue Cycle to get in my cardio. Another class that I enjoy is surfset. This class is great for building balance and coordination. I would highly recommend every class I have taken at Blue Barre and I look forward to trying some of the newer ones soon! More...

I've been going to Blue Barre for about 2 years now and I love it.  I'm a member of the Y, I've tried their barre classes at multiple locations but none compare to Blue.  The instructors are so welcoming and professional .  Their attention to their  clients is amazing .  I love the fact that they constantly monitor your movements it's like having  personal trainer.

I can't say enough great things about Blue Barre. I have never been able to exercise regularly until I discovered this studio. My only regret is that I didn't discover it sooner. What keeps me coming back are awesome results I was able to achieve. In just a short few months, I lost 15 pounds and feel more toned all over. What's more, the classes are fun and varied, and the instructors are knowledgable and caring. Thank you Grace, Jessi, Christi, Heather and Naomi! I am hooked... More...

I've been going to Blue Barre for two years and I absolutely love it. I originally came to try out barre classes since I'd never done it but the studio has a ton of other fun classes, too, and I got hooked. All of the different levels of barre are fantastic, the TRX class is a great new challenge, and the cardio classes are fun workouts. Grace is always trying new classes so things never get old. I just started taking the pound class which seems good.I'm a big cheapo but I've been happily throwing down money for these classes because the workouts are great and Grace and the other instructors are so welcoming and encouraging. You won't find a more personal connection to a studio. Grace is so accommodating and worked with me while I was pregnant to alter the workouts based on movements I should be avoiding, which allowed me to keep going to class until I was too pregnant to do anything anymore. And from time to time when there are enough new moms in the studio, she sets up mommy and me barre classes geared specifically toward working out with a baby strapped to you. All the instructors make sure to check whether anyone has any injuries and works with those afflicted to avoid further damage and strengthen the problem area. Grace has a PHD in molecular biology, fer chrissake, so she has really good insight about some aspects of the body. The only warning I have is that the cancellation policy is no joke (three hours before a normal class and eight hours before a morning class) so don't sign up for classes until the last minute if you can help it. Some of the more popular smaller classes (like the TRX or Surfset ones) fill up quick so you have to pre-book them but the barre and cardio classes usually don't fill up completely so you can safely book those not long before it starts. If you sign up the night before for a class and then have a tough night and can't attend, you're out the class pass. If you're looking for a workout you'll actually look forward to doing definitely try this place! It's not scary at all as a new person. It's very easy to try out all the different classes to see what you like. More...

I recently started to go to classes at this studio and have taken Barre + Cardio, Pound, Piloxing and my favorite Barre TRX. I love TRX and haven't found a lot of places that offer it. Combining it with barre is such an interesting concept and adds some extra intensity to the workout. I love that the classes are challenging, but not intimidating. I've wanted to try Piloxing (pilates and boxing) for a few years now and was super excited to see this being offered. All I can say is "Wow." I was dripping in sweat and my upper body was sore for days (in the best way possible.)All the instructors have been great, but Grace in particular, who is also the owner, is funny, approachable and has a great teaching style. At my very first class, even though she wasn't the one teaching it, took a minute to notice that I was a new face she didn't recognize and introduced herself. I'd definitely recommend this studio for some interesting and different classes to mix up your normal routine. There's also plenty of parking, which is a plus! More...

I recently moved to Watertown and did a ton of research looking for a new barre studio. I decided to try Blue Barre & Dance Fitness based on the amazing reviews and I am so glad I did! As soon as I walked in the first day I was greeted by Grace and the other teachers, everyone is so nice and welcoming! I have been going for a week now and I absolutely love the classes! Definitely a must try!! More...

I live in Boston, so I can't come here as often as I would like to but if I could, I would take classes here every week. I love the Piloxing class. It is only offered once a week I believe, but I highly recommend it for a good toning, cardio workout. The surfset classes are great too. It is a completely different type of workout than I have ever tried before and it really works your entire body, especially the core. Grace is so friendly and makes you want to push yourself harder. P.s. You also get a free class or a pair of sticky socks when it is your bday :) More...

Great experience! I did the Surfset class and I highly recommend trying it.  It was 45 minutes, and be prepared... its no joke.  They have some good first time student deals.  The cost is high, but its worth it. More...

I cannot say enough positive things about BLUE Barre. Last year I started attending classes, and I'm still at it! I've never enjoyed working out, but I can honestly say, I enjoy working out here. Grace and all the trainers are top notch. They make me feel comfortable, and are always supporting me in my fitness goals. As someone who was petrified to attend her first class, I can tell you, if you feel that way, just come. . . I promise it will be worth it! More...

This is probably one of the best workout studios in Waltham. After taking my first Barre class here, I decided to buy the 10 class pass. So far I have done few Barre classes and a Zumba class here. The Barre classes are a hard workout , Zumba not so much. Grace is an amazing teacher and she takes time to make sure you get what you paid for. They have classes timed perfectly for an after-work evening.Can't wait to try the other classes here! More...

I'd never heard of Piloxing until my friend convinced me to try the class out at this studio. Grace (the owner) checked me in and led the class. And by led, I mean that she took us on a non-stop hour of boxing mixed with Pilates mixed with a bit of dance moves. The fast pace and upbeat music definitely kept the class interesting, in addition to Grace's teaching style. It's been a long time since I've had this much fun in a group exercise class.It's clear that Grace set up the studio for maximum convenience with a personal touch. The space is open and well-lit, with all the requisite amenities (showers, towels, storage space for belongings), along with nice lotions for use after washing your hands. The front of the studio is also stocked with a great selection of Barre and Pilates gear.There's so much that's great about BLUE Barre - looking forward to the next class already! More...

I've done two years at Pure Barre and a year at Equinox.  Blue barre is my favorite.  There's a personal feel instantly.  Instructors know your name.  The barre workout has a lot of variety with equipment and moves.  Surfset is incredibly challenging and fun. More...

Grace is the best! Her classes are fun and very informative, focusing on correct posture and breathing whilst working your body to it's full potential! There is a full range of classes to suit  all tastes and the studio is fabulous! I especially love the Barre classes and the Surfset class (a shark tank success story) works on strength, balance and cardio. I love this place! I highly recommend it! More...

I took a beginner class with Grace - it was EXCELLENT. I am still a bit wobbly postpartum, and this class was perfect for helping retrain my posture in a methodical fashion, but was a killer workout. The studio is bright and clean with tons of space. Grace, the owner/ an instructor is SUPER nice, and very helpful in describing adjustments as you work. Certain postures lend for you to easily fall out of form, but not all studio instructors will provide these reminders, decreasing the efficacy of the workout. Grace was A+ with her instruction. The studio has Sunday classes, which is key as it is tricky for me to get anywhere during the week. The pricing is competitive, and even lower than studios in neighboring towns and has a great parking lot. Looking forward to trying some of the other classes, or just going back for the basic class, it was hard enough! More...

I'm loving the barre classes. Colleen does an especially great job as instructor- I always feel the workout in my muscles instead of my neck and back, which is really hard to achieve in classes like this! The pricing is a little steep though, so I can't afford to go more than once a week. More...

10 August 2015

I've taken Barre, Barre + Cardio, and Surfset classes here and have enjoyed all of them! The studio is beautiful with nice touches like Bliss lotion and L'Occitane soaps. Grace, the owner, is extremely talented as are Colleen and Jessi. They offer classes at all times of day and do not just cater to some of the non-working crowd, which I've found a problem at some studios I previously attended. They have great specials and are very clear about all of their policies. So if you live in Waltham or work there, definitely an awesome studio to check out!! More...

I've been trying to find a good local option for a dance-based workout, and finally made it in to check out Blue Barre.  What a great, local resource for those of us who want to keep dance in our lives! Grace, the teachers and regular students have all been great in introducing me to the school and answering any questions I've had.  I've taken two DancEnergy classes so far, and hope to come back weekly.  I can't wait to try other classes like Barre, Zumba and BollyX.The facility is clean and bright, and as someone who is not used to AIR CONDITIONING in a dance studio, it is a wonderful treat in a summer workout class.  Thank you Blue Barre for being there!

SO happy I discovered Blue Barre. I work right down the street and noticed this studio one day after eating at Bertucci's for lunch. I am a huge fan of barre so thought I'd check it out. I also dragged along a couple of coworkers to try some classes with me. Now we're all hooked and go every week! I've tried their barre classes, Surfset, and bollyx. Would love to be able to try Zumba and piloxing, but those class times are not as convenient. I work in Waltham but live in Brookline so I tend to take the classes right after work. They do switch up the schedule quite often though so hopefully I get a chance to try these at some point.Grace and Colleen are the best! They take the time to get to know the members and they greet me by name every time I walk in. They are hands-on in their classes and offer modifications which is very important to me. I currently have a bum shoulder along with back pain so I like still being able to get a good workout in without putting further strain on either. My only complaint is that I wish my Class Pass membership allowed me to go more than 3x a month! More...

Offers true Barre classes. A lot of places call their classes Barre but then add the Bosu or step or some weird cardio aspect. ..or they pack so many people in that you can't actually maintain your position correctly at the barre. Grace stays true to barre's roots. The facility is beautiful -- clean and state-of-the art. More...

I started classes here after I purchased a groupon, but I plan to keep with it! It's clear Grace has a passion for her work. I've only taken the barre mixed levels class and the barre cardio. I really love the barre cardio. It gives me a great overall workout. Colleen is a great instructor as well. The class sizes are smaller and more intimate than other group exercises I've attended. Colleen and Grace do a great job of correcting your form while keeping you motivated through the workout. More...

BLUE Barre was my first Barre class ever. I've been wanting to try Barre for quite some time and found BLUE Barre with my Class Pass. The moment I walked in the door, Grace was a pleasant, welcoming, and helpful greeter. I took Basic Barre with her and she helped me every step of the way. I liked that she modified me when I was doing things wrong, and ensured I was okay throughout the class. Talk about attentive and supportive!My second class at BLUE Barre was with Colleen, and again the Basic Barre class. She was great as well! It was interesting to see the different teaching styles. I felt Colleen was a little harder than Grace, but both were challenging classes.I will definitely be back to get my Barre on soon! More...

I love going to Blue Barre and they have a variety of classes so you're guaranteed to find something you like! I've had classes with Grace, Liza and Kristin so far and all the teachers are very welcoming, patient and there to help you learn. The studios are pristine and parking is no issue as there's a lot right out front. It's definitely worth checking out if you're looking to switch up your workout routine! More...
