BarSculpt creator Leslie Guerin Canto began her fitness career in Manhattan while working as a professional actress. In New York, she had the pleasure of studying under Lotte Berk Method founder Lydia Bach. Inspired to teach, she went on to study Pilates and Personal Training and to hold certificates in both. Upon returning to Maine and opening Pure Movement, Leslie began building a method combining the strengths of all three disciplines.

After years of honing BarSculpt, Leslie’s passion is bringing this fitness class to new students and teachers to share its power and grace.
