“Barre class is a workout technique inspired by elements of ballet, yoga, and Pilates,” says Katelyn DiGiorgio, the VP of training and technique at Pure Barre. “It focuses on low-impact, high-intensity movements.” Some require the proper equipment, though, whether that means grippy barre socks, an exercise mat, a Pilates ball, sliders, resistance loops, a home barre apparatus, and more.
Yes, it can be a little overwhelming, but that’s why team WH is here to help. Keep reading for all of the absolute best at-home barre workout equipment, according to a pro trainer and rave reviews.

No-Slip Yoga Mat
Eco-Friendly Organic Yoga Mat Sand
This body-safe mat is both totally eco-friendly and trainer-recommended. “This exercise mat has neutral colors, it’s soft, reliable, and durable,” says Ashley Joi, CPT, a trainer based in Los Angeles. It’s made of natural tree rubber, plus it comes in a bunch of different colors.
Sliders are essential to a good barre workout, especially if you’re trying to seriously tone the abs, legs, and back. If you need some of your own, these seven-inch-wide, dual-sided sliders are a great fit, says Joi. And yep, they’ll work on multiple surfaces, so no worries about scratching your hardwood or matte-ifying your carpet.
Leggings That Stay Put
Seamless High Waist Full Length Tight
“These leggings are so seamless and comfy,” says Joi. “I’ve worn these working out and just for a comfy relaxed look.” They’re both soft and non-slip, so they’ll hug your body juuust right for your intense barre workouts, without feeling like you’re pulling up your pants the whole time. Bring your at-home barre look together by pairing it with the matching sports bra.
Cute Crop Top
Obviously you need a cute top to round out your at-home barre outfit. “I love the built-in bra, and anything cropped always excites me,” says Joi. This top will be totally comfortable throughout the entirety of your barre workout, Joi says, as she’s been wearing the brand for years.
Celeb-Approved Resistance Band
Full Body Resistance Loop
Obviously, WH loves a good Halle Berry product.“This is a Black, female-owned company,” says Joi. “It’s durable, it gets the job done, and it’s at great price point.” So yeah, not only are these resistance loops affordable, but they’re also a great method for increasing your muscular endurance during barre, targeting different muscle groups, and more.
Sculpting BOSU Ball
This versatile core ball is perfect for your at-home barre routines, says Joi. Why? It’s easy-to-use, it fits behind your knees and back, and you can use it for anything from glute work, to adductor tweaks, to core-strengthening moves. “It allows for full range of motion,” says Joi. “And it’s durable.” Noted!
Grippy Barre Socks
Good Vibes Only Ankle Socks
“These are from a local LA company, and they have fun sayings on the bottom to feel personal,” says Joi. Yep, those sayings also act as grips, so you can rest-assured you’re not gonna slip around while doing your barre poses. “And you can express your personality through great colors,” adds Joi. You love to see it.
At-Home Ballet Bar
Home Fitness Exercise Barre
With over 1,400 reviews on Amazon, this at-home barre equipment is the perfect addition to your at-home setup. “The barre has a beautiful solid wood barre, just like the ballet barres you would see at any ballet or barre studio,” writes one online reviewer. “I’d buy this a thousand times over…The hardware on the wooden bar is shiny nickel-coated, and the ‘feet’ (like an L angle shape frame) are the same beige/tan neutral color.” And, yep, it folds closed once your done, making it super easy to store.
