Why do you barre so hard?
Barre has been the only exercise that I have been able to stick with for the last 3 years. I have tried everything with terrible results. I love the feeling I get after I finish a class - energized without the sweat ... I do SOAR for that!!!
What does being a part of the BBS tribe mean to you?
The BBS community is a great group of strong and amazing woman (& a few men) that motivate and inspire me to be heathy and get in shape, especially when we do challenges together. They are great support when I need it the most (you know who you are gals.) I also love bonding with my daughter Brianne at barre. Through barre I am able to showing her what it is like to live a healthy lifestyle. You'll see us once in a while at barre or SOAR together.
Other than barre, what exercises do you do to stay well-rounded?
I love to go for long walks in the river valley. SOAR classes have become my favorite cardio ever since they were brought to the studio.
What keeps you inspired and motivated?
I love how the barretenders push me past limits that I didn't even know existed! They keep me motivated to continue to come on a regular basis, especially when I begin to see results ... my “love handles" are finally gone! I also love how I feel stronger than I ever have before.
Tell us something that we don't know about you?
7 years ago my family and I hiked the Inca trail in MachuPicchu, Peru (where I'm from.) That has to be the hardest thing I have ever done, but it was also the most rewarding thing I have ever done.
