SoulBody Barre “Unhitched”
We are getting a huge response from our members here at our Merritt Athletic Clubs in Maryland, they are LOVING SoulBody Barre! We are at capacity in most of our classes and adding SoulBody Barre to two more of our locations. Ann Marie and Stacey have also been great to work with. I could not be happier with the programming!

For two years I’ve instructed SoulBody Barre, and of all my fitness studies, this is where my passion lies. I am a Team USA athlete, certified personal trainer, and cycle instructor, too. Confidently, SoulBody Barre showcases the holistic elements of training that every woman desires. Flowing beautifully, barre gives my body the ability to feel strong, fit and powerful, all while looking lean and sculpted through difficult choreographies that are put together by the SoulBody SQUAD.
I constantly feel empowered by my students that come through the door who are there for a great workout and challenge each choreographed piece presents. Each class focuses on every inch of the body, burning each muscle to reach its greatest potential and pushing yourself past what you thought you could do. Students are ready to take on that challenge — and always come back for more

We love SoulBody Barre “Unhitched”! Since bringing the class to BeachFit we have had a tremendous response from our members because the class is innovative and pushes you to work muscles you never realized you had. It is one of our most popular classes and we have had to add more timeslots to the schedule in order to keep up with and accommodate the demand. SoulBody Barre “Unhitched” is a great addition to our studio since we don’t have a fixed barre. This class offers not only mobility and convenience for the studio but also a challenge that our members really love because it lacks the fixed stability of more traditional barre classes. The workouts that Ann Marie and Stacey have choreographed flow well ensuring that you will get a full body burn while having a lot of fun along the way…. cue in the hip sways!

Ann Marie and Stacey have a passion for movement and a healthy lifestyle!
Together they’ve been in the fitness industry for 15+ years and saw a need for a comprehensive BARRE program with a more athletic approach that was consistent and readily available to large clubs and studios alike, helping them create that “boutique barre” experience!
Although busy with 7 kids between them, they took their passion for fitness and their idea for the perfect one-hour BARRE class, and created a pre-choreographed program with just the right blend of challenging, unique and effective moves set to motivating music.
