The Barre Scene
With class names like “Vixen Workout” and “Barre Brawl,” this Buckhead dance and fitness studio (created by former Orangetheory fitness instructor and Miami Heat dancer Katherine Akra) ensures you’re having fun while feeling the burn, with upbeat jams and a laidback but energetic atmosphere that features fun bar-themed touches like “bottomless” classes and “barretender” instructors.
This impeccably designed Westside pilates studio aims to inspire locals to “do it on the daily”—”it” being work out, of course. Founded by 25-year fitness vet Lily Collins, The Daily offers five signature classes that focus on tone, flexibility and high energy interval training. They also offer The Daily 30, a half-hour circuit training class, so there’s no excuse not to fit a quick sweat into your schedule.

This spring, ITF has plans to open a new location in a warehouse space in West Midtown, so even more ATLiens can find their tribe.
