Barre Body Fit


This class is taught by:

Lena Le Huray

Q: WHAT OTHER TYPES OF FITNESS / SPORTS DO YOU ENJOY? 
A: Pilates and dance cardio (I still secretly do Jane Fonda workouts)! 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
A:  To see women set free from any unhealthy relationships they may have towards food and their body, and help them walk in full health - physically, emotionally and spiritually.

Q: WHAT DOES BEING A PART OF THE BBS TRIBE MEAN TO YOU?
A: I have always had the desire to help women love the skin they're in, and care for their body through movement. Being a part of the BBS Tribe allows me to show people that fitness can, and should be, fun. Being a part of the BBS Tribe is like being a part of a family for me, where I get to go hang out with a room full of my best friends every time I teach or take class.

Crystal T. 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.

Reanna Dorscher

Q: DESCRIBE YOUR CLASS STYLE? 
A: EARLY - I mostly teach at 6am BUT, my classes are empowering, energetic and FUN! 

Q: WHAT'S YOUR DAY JOB?
A:  I am a consultant for a firm where we advise Boards on executive compensation and related governance matters.

Q: WHAT'S YOUR WHY?
A:  I am constantly striving to be the best version of myself for those I love. I have realised in order to be the best sister/daughter/friend i can be, I need to be fulfilled which includes working hard, staying active, being social, and travelling often.

"Be present. Worry less about the "what ifs" and "maybes". Enjoy the now and the certain." 

 

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."

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.
