Karen Gartner Gartner

BARRE INSTRUCTOR
 
AFAA and Barre certified, Karen has extensive dance/ballet experience.   Karen leads her students on a journey towards the physical and mental benefits of exercise. Creating a comfortable, fun, relaxed yet challenging class, she helps each of her students reach beyond their expectations and hopes they will be rewarded by the changes they experience in their lives.
A more athletic approach to Barre training, extra props and equipment are used to enhance overall sculpting for upper body, thigh, seat and core. A different format is used in each Sports Barre class. What to expect/wear: UGI, Gliding discs, tubing, bands and weights are used for an ultimate total body workout. Barre emphasizes barefoot training(no shoes), but toe sox are highly recommended for support and grip in Barre classes.

Ugi ball(used at times) is a padded medicine ball that combines strength, cardio and core training into the most fun, challenging, perfect way to becoming functionally fit.
