How did you become a barreTech.?
I've always been an enthusiast for health and fitness. I never was really big on going to the gym and working out on my own; I needed and loved the support and direction of exercise classes of all different types. Kickboxing, yoga, zumba, and cycling are a few of my favs! I heard of barre when a friend asked me to join her for a class at BARRE TECH., and I was hooked instantly. I started to do work-study in exchange for classes shortly after. After falling more and more in love with the concept and vibe of the studio, I decided to take my #barrelove one plie further and become an instructor. I've been teaching now for four months, and I love it more with every class!

How has living an active life empowered you and made you who you are today?
Living an active lifestyle has empowered me to be confident in who I am and what I want out of life.
What, in your mind, is a distinguishing feature of BARRE TECH.?
The choreography. The way we put the moves together is unique.
Morning or evening? When is your ideal time to work out?
If the option is there, I like to work out first thing in the morning, shortly after waking up. It's a great way to jolt the body and everything else you do or eat that day is justified!
Working out after a full day of work is tough. What is your favorite easy and delicious recovery meal?
I like to keep it simple and make a PB&J accompanied by a big cold glass of almond milk.
