Why do you love Barre? It’s an alternative to the gym that’s structured but varied enough that my body doesn’t plateau. The music & personality behind the class being taught in a beautiful community is inspiring for the day to follow.

After Barre you can be found: eating on a corner or sipping Starbucks…which one who knows?! Or walking, jogging or climbing mountains with my pup Louis.

What is your guilty pleasure? Friday Night Lights forever! Clear eyes, full hearts, CAN'T LOSE. Snacks, always Snacks. Polaroid Cameras. Twister.

Do you carry anything odd with you in your purse or gym bag? A comb, for locks that can’t be tamed.

Why do you love Barre? Because it’s so accessible! I started coming to Barre as a way to rehabilitate an ankle injury, and not only did it speed up my recovery, it also provided a great workout that had felt out of reach until I was fully rehabbed.

After Barre you can be found: hanging out with my little man, walking one or all of our three dogs, or working on one of many DIYs I usually have on the go.

What do you want to be when you grow up? One day I hope to open my own décor shop.

What is your favourite quote? “Be stubborn about your goals but flexible about your methods.”

Amber Brodziak

Q: WHAT MADE YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH BARRE? 
A: The power of the movement and the effectiveness of the exercise. For years prior, I worked out with different methods and exercises, and none have transformed my body, or been as effective as barre. 

Q: DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE?
A: Sweaty, intense, loud, fun, purposeful.

Q: WHAT'S ONE THING YOU WISH YOU COULD TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
A:  I wish so much that I could have realized how much people are just truly worried and consumed with themselves. I worried so much (and sometimes still do) what others think of me. Fear of other's judgements has stopped me from doing so many things that I wish I could have just pushed through. As I have gotten older, I have realized that everyone has their own story and 'stuff'; and we are just all in the same boat often consumed with insecurity and fear. I have felt so much better working at letting go what others think and pursuing what has felt good and right for me.

Q: WHAT'S ONE THING YOU WOULD TELL YOUR YOUNGER SELF?
A: Enjoy your body, be proud of your body, respect your body and damn it, wear sunscreen!

Crystal Thomson-Dick

Q: DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE? 
A: BANGIN!!! Also, Motivating, Challenging, Technical & Personal. 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR DAY JOB?
A: I'm mostly a stay-at-home mom to my two amazing kids. I also work for Newad Media part-time. In my LBK (life before kids), I was a Psychological Assistant where I administered psychological testing on clients. 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
A:  My why is my family. The opportunity to grow, build strength and share my love of movement with every client I see at the studio and every member of the BBS community that I interact with, is another small part of what drives me to do what I do. When I sweat, push myself a little harder, and share my enthusiasm and excitement for barre and the process of doing something for yourself, to better yourself; I become a better person in all areas of my life. To strive to be the best mother, wife, daughter and friend that I can be is my main focus, and the reason I get out of bed every morning.

"Life is too short to worry about things you cannot change. Let it go, and focus on the things you can change. Remember that it's all a part of the journey and the lesson."

Why do you love Barre? I love barre because it is low impact, I have had a few surgeries and found that other workouts are quite painful. I love the energy of a group workout as well.

After Barre I can be found: walking my puppies and working on my Masters in Art Therapy.

What is your guilty pleasure? I love the Real Housewives of anywhere really. I know it's awful but I just get so involved!

What little things make you smile? When my step-son tells me I am beautiful. :)

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?

Vanessa Stewart

Q: WHAT OTHER TYPES OF FITNESS/SPORTS DO YOU ENJOY? 
A: Ashtanga yoga, swimming, spin, basketball, hiking. 

Q: WHAT DOES BEING A PART OF THE BBS TRIBE MEAN TO YOU?
A: The BBS tribe has always been welcoming, positive and authentic, and that in turn encourages me to bring the same uplifting vibrations to every aspect of my life.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
A: My WHY is redefining what I can and can't do. Gritting my teeth and surprising myself with that one extra set completed at the end of a hard series. Realizing that I am much more capable than I think I am. Pushing my own limits. Seeing other people experience the same effect through barre, then having the trickle effect throughout their own lives; nothing better.

"Keep going."
