Long Strong Arms


This class is taught by:

Why do you barre so hard?
I barre so hard for the burn, the booty, the beats and the babes! I love feeling my body working hard, so the fact that barre can get my muscles burning & shaking in minutes is addicting. The results are incredible; it definitely keeps my body in shape and always feeling strong. I love the music and energy in each class and I always look forward to being around the inspiring instructors & clients.

Tell us something we don’t know about you!
I was a figure skater for most of my life up until my second year of University – I did singles skating as well as synchronized skating.

Kendra Chow

Name: Kendra Chow

Why do you barre so hard?
Because why not? I’ve always been a very ‘Challenge Accepted!’ kind of gal, and I love barre for the physical, mental, and endurance challenges it provides. Barre is
stimulating in so many ways! It brought me back to my dancer body and mind, and it
feels so good to be in a position of pursuit again.

Why do you barre so hard?
 
I barre so hard because no matter how many classes I come to, I can
never predict what the instructor is going to bring, and I can always find
something in my form, or my effort that needs improvement. I also love
barre because of the community. The clients, and the staff are second to 
none, and the studio has definitely become a place of comfort and solace
in my crazy life.

Why do you barre so hard?
Barre makes me feel strong, clears my head and gives me the energy to keep up with my busy 3 year old.

What is a secret talent of yours?
I can touch my tongue to my nose. I also bake, knit, embroider, and do paper cut illustrations.

Lauren Chow

Name: Lauren  Hometown: Saskatoon, SK Why do you barre so hard? 
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.
This class is designed to have you winning push up contests in no time! Structured like our signature Barre Body Fit class, you can expect to get a full body workout while focusing on your arms. More weights, more upper body resistance, more reasons to wear tank tops all year round
