EN FORME was inspired by the French language “être en forme” which means “to be healthy” or “to have energy”.  Our dance inspired Barre and Pilates classes cater from beginners through to advanced as well as pre and post natal specialised classes.

Our mission is to engage, enliven and empower our clients; transforming your idea of what fitness can be. Join us for a class at our Christchurch studio and see what all the fuss is about.
