How long have you taken classes at Move It Studio? Since March 2016.
Why did you start taking classes at Move It Studio?
It had been ten years since I had my first child and I had slowly gained weight. I was balancing intense work hours and family, forgetting to allow time for me and my own health. A great friend of mine, Jeannette Hines, invited me to a barre class. I remember that I started to text her four excuses of why I couldn't go to class that day, I erased my message and replied, "See you there." I have been hooked ever since.
What is your favorite part of taking classes at Move It Studio?
I love so many things about barre, but mostly the positive energy and music. I enjoy seeing new and old friends in class. It is a bonding experience as we are all taking on new challenges and continuing to encourage each other in each barre class. The changes I have seen in my body, my happiness, and improved health are what motivate me to keep coming back to Move It Studio.
What have you gained from your time with us?
Besides a great playlist from the fantastic music played in barre class, I have gained a healthier lifestyle. I have lost over 30 pounds in the past year and I attribute that to barre class and a healthier diet. My cholesterol has dramatically improved. I have also seen how the changes in my body have encouraged my friends and colleagues to try barre class along with lifestyle changes.
What would you say to someone considering to start taking barre classes?
I actually talk to people every day about trying barre class. I tell them how much it has improved my health. We all have the same excuse that we do not have enough time. Barre class is only 55 minutes of your time, and we all have 55 minutes in a day to make our lives healthier. But more than that, it is a fun way to tone your body, lose weight, have fun, and focus on yourself for just a little bit each day. Barre makes me a better mom, wife, doctor and friend. I have less stress and more happiness in the past year after starting barre at Move It Studio...thanks to Marie, Regina and all of the other great instructors.

Barre is something I want to do because I love it, and that is what keeps me coming back for more!
I'm especially happy that barre has improved my abs, which I thought had disappeared for good after childbirth!
All of the teachers are very friendly and helpful.

Why barre and why Move It Barre?
Barre classes are a fast-growing fitness trend that combine ballet-based exercises with Pilates to create a full-body workout. They focus on high-repetition of small movements to strengthen and tone the body. Move It Barre is different than other barre methods in that it focuses on maintaining a neutral spine in order to protect the joints. We’ve found that you can still get an amazing workout without tucking! Another Move It Barre signature is the music; with each exercise choreographed to flow in the style of a dance class. We want you to find your inner dancer!
