Why do you love Barre? It's that sweet barre burn that made me fall in love; I admit, it is a love/hate relationship! It is so intense but the benefits I have seen in my muscles and the improvement in my strength and endurance makes those 'teeny-tiny-little pulses' worth every second.

What is your guilty pleasure? Red wine and chocolate are my biggest weaknesses…and peanut butter.

What is a secret talent of yours? Singing maybe? But it’s not a secret; I sing all the time! Heck, maybe I sound terrible and nobody tells me? Perhaps I simply enjoy the sound of my own voice but I do honestly love to sing.

Who inspires you to be the best version of yourself? My sisters and my momma; they are my besties and I find them hugely inspirational.

After Barre you can be found: teaching ballet or taking some kind of class.

What is your guilty pleasure? Chocolate, coffee, shopping and Netflix.

What little things make you smile? Good music, "ah-ha" moments, a good latte and sexy hips!

Why do you love Barre? I love Barre for so many different reasons. I’ve been a personal trainer and involved in fitness for the past 8 years and this has been one of the only methods of movement where I’ve really seen the body changes I’ve desired. Not only has it catered to me on a physical level, but emotionally and spiritually as well. Barre embodies femininity and strength for me, it helps with posture, injury rehabilitation and balance. The community that you’re a part of when you go, and the connections you make are truly inspiring and uplifting. 

What is you favourite Barre Body Move? Anything glutes. If it works the booty, I’m all in! 

Who inspires you to be the best version of yourself? My husband.

What is your favourite quote? “Life without passion is unforgivable”. -P.Diddy

Chaela Houston

After Barre you can be found: at Starbucks and then the dance studio.

What do you want to be when you grow up? A Ballerina! ;)

What advice would you give to a first time barre guest? Stick it out. The results are so worth the burn!

What little things make you smile? Music, sparkles, bright colours, chocolate, and books.

 

Mackenzie Schurer

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.”

 

Megan Coonan

Hometown: Calgary, AB

What is your favourite Barre Body Move? Butt Blaster or Pelvic Thrusts.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I’ll never grow up.

What is a secret talent of yours? That I can’t keep secrets.

What barre star advice would you give to a first time barre guest? Draw on the strength from those around you and push yourself…and have fun!

Ashley G. Goethals

Hometown: Calgary, AB

Why do you love Barre? It’s fun and changes my body faster than anything else I’ve ever done.

What is a secret talent of yours? Making dream catchers!

What little things make you smile? A really good song, stepping on crunchy leaves and anything fluffy!

Do you carry anything odd with you in your purse or gym bag? I have granola bars and a bottle opener in my purse at all times!

Jaimie Love

Hometown: Calgary, AB

Why do you love Barre? It's a full body workout and really targets all the smaller areas of your body that other exercise doesn't. Plus it's an amazing community of fun, positive, encouraging women.

What is your favourite post workout snack? Anything and everything! I'm super hungry after a good barre burn.

What advice would you give to a first time barre guest? Breathe and don't be afraid of the shakes! 

What little things make you smile? That first sip of earl grey tea in the morning. It's best not to talk to me until that's happened. ;)

Marlo Brausse

Hometown: Calgary, AB

What is your favourite Barre Body Move? I love them all and am constantly dreaming up new ways to keep my classes challenging with different variations on old classics that we use in classes. I love thigh and seat work at the barre. Booty.

What is your guilty pleasure? Pizza and wine.

What do you want to be when you grow up? I worked for the Government of Alberta for 10 years before opening Barre Body Studio. The last position that I held was as an Assistant Chief Probation Officer. During those years I grew up fast. I left the GOA to follow my dreams. It is never too late to change your destiny.

Who inspires you to be the best version of yourself? My kids. They are constantly asking questions, learning, and looking for guidance. Staying active helps me to be the best version of myself.

Lindsay Butchko

Hometown: Calgary, AB

Why do you love Barre? It reminds me of my past being at the barre in dance class. Now I love it because it has transformed my body in a way that I didn't know was possible. My legs, arms and body are lean!

What is your guilty pleasure? Reality Television.

Who inspires you to be the best version of yourself? My best friend; she is always beside me to encourage, motivate and celebrate!

What is your favourite quote? "Anything worth having is worth working for."

Hillary Taylor

Hometown: Calgary, AB

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.


The original, like a classic tote that complements every look, this one hour workout will tone and challenge all levels of fitness. This is a class you can't go wrong with. The BBF tones and blasts common problem areas through a series of strategic exercises that focus on strength and flexibility while incorporating the ballet barre.
