Toni has been an instructor of PiYo and TRX since October 2015.
She feels fortunate to be able to teach 2 formats that she absolutely loves. While a novice instructor with no experience to speak of, she was given the opportunity to bring Piyo to the studio and share her love for this format.
In February 2017 she was able to add TRX to her certifications and has loved developing these classes for her students.
In her words "I feel so lucky to be a fitness instructor, it’s my passion and I have a genuine love for teaching. I am fortunate that my teaching experience has been been surrounded by instructors that I respect and clients that have become friends. I don’t even consider teaching work, it’s doing what I love most and I am grateful that I can continue to bring fun and challenging fitness formats to the studio”

Betty is very active in her adult life. She has exercised regularly for almost two decades but never cared for taking organized workout classes until me-time became a luxury 10 years ago.
As a mother of two young children, she needed an effective, challenging and fun workout routine.
Betty found BARRE and fell in love with classes immediately; she couldn't get enough of it. She even canceled her gym membership of close to twenty years and never looked back.
Betty is grateful and excited to be part of this amazing team that supports and inspires clients as well each other!
Hannah started practicing yoga at 14 due to an injury. She found it soothing and enjoyed how “sweaty” she could get by “simply stretching” plus it helped her back heal and get stronger. After 10 years of practice, she has discovered that yoga is so much more than stretching.
In 2015, she decided to pursue teaching yoga because of the impact that teachers had on her. Shortly after, she earned a personal training certificate and took a second and third yoga training to further educate herself to help and connect with more people.
Hannah brings lightheartedness to all of her classes and believes that working out should be fun and challenging at the same time. She personally invites you to get in your element, get a little sweaty, and laugh during the class!
With love, Hannah Lu
