Why do you barre so hard?
I love barre because it makes me feel strong and pretty! Plus it keeps my body in great shape. 

What is your guilty pleasure?
Popcorn! I could eat a bowl of popcorn everynight. My favorite toppings right now are olive oil, sea salt and dill.

Why do you barre so hard?
To feel strong and healthy. Barre has totally changed my life! I love the ladies I work with everyday, the community we have built and of course that burn that only barre delivers.

Why do you barre so hard?
Straight up, Barre is SO much fun! If you’re going to work until your legs shake, you might as well have fun doing it. Barre has incredible side effects, both mental and physical. Physically, my body has changed so much! My legs are stronger than ever, I actually have arm muscles and of course, my backside is loving it too. Mentally, barre just makes me happy! I always walk out of a class, regardless if I was taking it or teaching it, with the biggest smile on my face!

Enjoy the little things - What little things make you smile?
Impromptu dance parties are my thing! I also love the color yellow, a good book, and catching up with family and friends.

How would you describe the BBS Tribe?
 
The BBS Tribe is such an empowering and motivational group of people! There are days where I want to take class more than once just to be a part of the great community and vibes you get from being around BBS.

Michelle Shewchuk

Name: Michelle Shewchuk

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.

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

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?

Kirsten Tullis

Name: Kirsten Tullis
 
Hometown: Durban, South Africa

Why do you barre so hard?
I barre so hard for the results. I love the endorphins and the positive attitude I leave the class with. I love what barre has done to my body. I love the fact I need to go out and buy a bigger pair of jeans to fit my butt, and a smaller top to fit my waist.

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what would you bring with you?
Sun cream, a great book, rum and coke in a giant cooler.
A 45min Class in the classic Barre Body Fit style for those on the go.
