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.
Any advice for the barre stars in your class?
Remember what brought you to the barre each time you walk into class and use it as motivation to push yourself – especially if you feel like giving up. It won’t get easier, but you will get stronger so look forward to challenging yourself and showing yourself what you are made of!
What is your favorite move @ the barre?
Second position chair. Burn baby burn!
What other exercises do you love (in addition to barre) to keep your routine well rounded?
Anything that makes me sweat! Outside of barre I’m not super attached to any specific exercises or activities, but I really enjoy trying new things (thank goodness or I wouldn’t have found barre!), so you could find me in a yoga class, a zumba class, playing tennis, kickboxing, boot camp classes, or even just at the gym. My goal is to stay active and sweat, so if I’m not at barre – anything goes!

If you were stranded on a deserted island, what would you bring with you?
I would bring my husband. We are both very ambitious and determined individuals, so between the two of us I bet we could figure out a way to get home! But just in case we didn’t, obviously I would need eye candy ;)
