Why do you barre so hard? 

 

I love barre simply because it is SO much fun! I started ballet at 2 ½ and
being at the barre takes me back to the fun days of dancing at the studio! The
energy at the studio is always addicting and I love how each class is different
and challenging.

 

If you had to choose 3 words to describe yourself, what would they be?

 


Compassionate, Attentive, & Fiery (I’m a ginger!)

For the beats, the motivation, and the connection to one’s body. There 
is nothing like hearing that beat drop when you go into that combo 
movement and you whisper to yourself, “You got this…” (or is that just
 me?) The barre community here is so welcoming, inspiring, and 
empowering. Barre has pushed me further in my physical and mental 
state. If I push myself to hold that squeeze just a little longer at the 
barre, I can push myself to do a lot more!   Tell us something that we don’t know about you!   I’m a tap dancer! I’ve grown up tap dancing unofficially since I was 2
(thanks to my sis) and officially when I was 4! That’s why I love music 
that has a good beat to it. It’s instinctual for me groove out to that kind of music.

Why do you barre so hard?
Barre became my favourite work out almost instantly after my first class. It makes me feel graceful (most of the time), I am challenged every class, the music is great, the results are quick and the barre community is amazing. It's a work out that I never dread going to so I find it easy to motivate myself and I love the healthy lifestyle that goes hand in hand with barre.

If you had to choose 3 words to describe yourself, what would they be?
I know this is probably cheating but I went for a job interview once and they asked me the same question and my answer was “happy, friendly...and I don’t know, I’m just really happy.” Honestly, I was too nervous and couldn’t think of another word at the time, but whoever was interviewing me took it as me just being double happy and hired me anyways so I’m sticking to it.

Why do you barre so hard?
As a former gymnast and dancer, being at the Barre {moving to sick beats} has brought back so many great memories. It has also brought back those long, lean, toned muscles and has me feeling stronger than ever before! But what really keeps me going is the energy from this empowering community filled with so many inspiring barre stars and barre tenders that kick ass each and every day.

What is your guilty pleasure? 
Watching Real Housewives. And wine. Watching Real Housewives with wine.

Why do you barre so hard? 
 

It’s an alternative to the gym that’s structured but is varied enough
that it never feels routine. It’s a full body workout that really targets
and tones the smaller areas of your body you don’t usually exercise.
 
What is your favorite post workout snack?
 
Always down for a smoothie loaded with lots of fruit and greens or
dates with almond butter and coconut
Come to this class for a higher, tighter, rounder tush. We’ll run you through the regular Barre Body Fit class format you know and love with an extra emphasis on sculpting your seat, toning your hamstrings and strengthening your back. All levels welcome.
