Today marks the two year anniversary of meeting my husband. We connected through Match.com and we kept communication to a minimum before we set a time to meet. We met at a Starbucks. I walked there from work, it was the middle of the day and I didn’t even change out of my work clothes (yoga attire). I’m not actually sure what I was expecting, but I can guarantee I was not prepared for what I got. I always wanted to believe in love and first sight. I now have proof it exists! Chris is my person. He is the person...

Hi Leslie, I'm a little unclear as to how this works. I thought it was an in studio training but read that online is also an option? I'm also wondering about the cost of the training. Can you give me the details? For level 1 and 2? Thank you! Understandable why you are confused. I do both. In studio trainings AND online. The online option is really great if you cannot commit to an all day (or two all day) trainings and want to work at your own pace. It is also a great option if you are completely new to barre classes and want...

I know even for avid exercisers it is nerve racking to start all over with a new fitness type or even a different sport. Many people, especially athletes will tell you the benefits of cross training and mixing things up, and I am not going to disagree. But I will say that I have been doing barre classes for 20 years and they still work. Has my body changed.. HELL YES, I'm 43 not 23! But I am healthy and fit and although I could NOT run a marathon, I am in very good health. I attribute my health to the...

What's the difference between all these barre classes? In my opinion it's only a barre class if the barre is fixed to the wall or the floor AND the class teaches you an under the barre section. Basically one cannot do an under the barre section with a free standing barre. RoundBack is taught first. It is a stretch! It is a stretch like no other! I try to liken it to the split sequence because each day you attempt a split your body will give you different feedback, that is the same here...

I bitch a lot about how a barre class needs to have an under the barre section. Specifically RoundBack! RoundBack is WHY one should be doing the class. as it’s the absolutely  point! Also Under the Barre but more specifically RoundBAck is the most unique part of the class. This is why I went so far as to make it the Logo of BarSculpt. Do yourself and your clients a favor...

I started my weekend taking a barre class at a competing studio. Now you might think as a studio owner that i do this all the time. I do not. The reason I do not is not because I fear the competitors or personally feel threatened or do not like them, actually Portland Maine studio owners are all very accepting and supportive of each other with only a few exceptions. The reason I do not go, if for two reasons. #1 my time is limited and I need to be sure I get a GREAT class in if I am going...

With Mothers day coming up I am quickly reminded how much my mother does for me. That realization comes quickly with how much I do for my kids and mostly don't realize because they are my little people and I love them to bits. But WOW does it feel nice to be appreciated. Many of my clients are moms. I would say all of them have or have had a mom...
