Rachel we are honoured you miss us so much. We are sad that you have moved away but your story about STUDiO barre is here and we are so happy to have played such a big role in you falling in love with exercise. So many of us have struggled to find & stick with a workout we LOVE and WANT to take part in. Exercising should be enjoyable. We are happy to have you as a part of our extended iNSiDE Out family.

Here’s Rachel’s story:

“When I first heard of iNSiDE Out STUDiO barre it was through a friend who was an avid fan of the workout. She assured me that even though I hadn’t worked out in a long time I wouldn’t die my first class, and to just go along at my own pace.

Well, I did almost die my first class. I remember finishing the warm up and being ready to drop, but I pushed through and at the end of the class purchased the unlimited new client special. However, it wasn’t until a few months later that I actually became addicted to the workout and tried to go at least 3 days a week, or more if i could. The only reason I no longer go religiously is I have moved out of the city, and trust me, my first week away from barre has been tough.

As a bigger girl, I have always been self conscious going to a gym and working out. I sweat a lot and make awkward faces, and I’ve always felt judgement from all the gorgeous bodies at the gym. But I can honestly say I NEVER felt this way at iNSiDE Out. All of the instructors have been absolutely amazing at pushing me to my limit and making sure that I get the best workout possible. I have tried to introduce this workout to as many people as possible, I even brought my mom once, and everyone who has tried it has immediately become hooked.

It’s not just the workout that kept me coming back, but also the great atmosphere and the relationships I developed. While every instructor brings their own unique style to the class and I love them all, I have to say that Andrea was definitely my favourite instructor and i will really miss her sense of humour and the way she kicked my butt. I can honestly say I have never felt this way about an exercise regimen before, and I am truly missing coming to the studio.

I’d like to thank everyone at iNSiDE Out STUDiO barre for helping to build my confidence, making sure I got a great workout and above all for always making me feel welcome and valued. I would recommend this workout to absolutely everyone, and you will notice results after just a few classes. Trust me, if I can fall in love with an exercise class, you know that it’s totally worth your money. My only regret is that it took me so long to discover this STUDiO.

Hope everyone is doing well, and can’t wait to come back and visit!!””
