OAK CREEK STUDIO OWNER

 “I loved barre immediately!! It was such a great workout for me. I worked muscles I didn't even know I had and saw my body change!”, “I want all of my clients to feel comfortable, at home and make Barre District their happy place just liked It has been for me.”

Mary discovered barre when she was expecting her third son at age 37. While she was pregnant she was looking for a workout that challenged her and helped her get her post baby body back faster. When Mary found out Barre District was coming to Bay View, WI a few months after her son was born, her and her sister signed up for the grand opening class and then was hooked. She would drive 35 minutes from her home in Racine to make it to classes at least 2 to 3 times a week. The changes in her body that no other workout has ever done is what made her pursue the lifestyle and open a Barre District of her own.

Mary has been an educator for the past 16 years and is excited to continue sharing her love for teaching in a new capacity. She is determined to help others improve their body, mind and soul.


Melissa Holwell

I started Barre while living in Indianapolis. A friend of mine dislocated her kneecap while doing a trampoline exercise class, and her physical therapist recommended Barre. We did a free class together, and I fell in love with it. I had never experienced a class that was so well rounded before.

When I moved back to Milwaukee I was happy to find a new Barre studio right in my old neighborhood of Bayview. I remembered seeing a lot of pregnant women doing Barre in Indianapolis, so I decided to make it my goal to do Barre throughout my entire pregnancy. I accomplished this goal; I did my last class pregnant on a Sunday and delivered my first son on a Tuesday!

Barre District has become a huge part of my life, and my son Asher loves playing at Kid District. I'm excited to now become an instructor and share it with others!

ALEXIS GREEN

Alexis took her first Barre class at the Oak Creek studio’s Grand Opening and was instantly hooked.  After years of running, Alexis was looking for alternate ways to get a great workout without the stress that running put on her body.  Barre gave her the challenging workout she desired, along with a new found strength and confidence.  Her passion for fitness along with her desire to support and encourage other women made the decision to become an instructor an easy one. 

When she’s not at the Barre she’s working in the health insurance industry. She loves spending time with her husband, family and dogs. She has a passion for cooking, wine and coffee.

Jessi Larson

Jessi was looking for an alternative to the large franchise gyms where there was no structure and no routine. The flexibility of hours was great but she wasn’t seeing any results and didn’t really know what to do. She attended her first Barre class with a friend and fell in love immediately. As she watched her body change and became increasingly motivated to keep going and share her excitement with others. She’s never felt (or looked!) better and can’t believe how much Barre has done for her muscle development and confidence. During the day she works at a correctional facility counseling those struggling with drugs and alcohol. By night she’s excited to share her passion for health and fitness, along with her personal story about how much Barre has done for her, and can do for you.

Besides Barre, you can find Jessi spending time with her husband, active toddler and Siberian Husky. She loves to travel, laugh, watch the Milwaukee Brewers, plays fantasy football, and enjoys being outdoors when the weather allows in Wisconsin. Come join me for a class….or 10!
