What do you do outside of barre?
I am a mom to two young boys (3 and 10 months), so that keeps me very busy! Spending time with my family and friends is the most important thing to me.

Was there an interesting path that led you to teaching at Barre? 

My love affair with barre started years ago when I lived in the city and was getting in shape for my wedding. When I moved to Hoboken I found Local Barre and came religiously, all throughout my first pregnancy and then after my first son was born, and it really got me back into shape and is the one thing that truly transformed my body, and I’ve tried it all!

Health enthusiast? Tell us about your diet...vegan? raw? raw til 4? recipes? favorite seasonal dish or smoothie?
I really eat anything and everything in moderation. I mostly eat healthy but depriving myself of things I want just doesn’t work for me. If I want that pizza and brownie I will have it...and then the next day I will probably have a salad and hit the barre :).

How did you handle epic failure? 
Teaching my first class was a bit of a disaster, I was so nervous! I learned to have confidence in myself and to focus on my strengths, and to never stop being a student.

Your go-to travel spot and why. 

Cape Cod. I’ve been going my whole life and it’s my favorite place on Earth. When I drive over the bridge I am instantly relaxed.


What’s been essential to your success?
Always being willing to learn and improve, asking for constructive criticism, and not being afraid of hard work.



All time favorite movie quote?

How do you like them apples?

 Meghan-16_adj

From whom do you draw inspiration?
I am constantly inspired by our clients and my colleagues. Moms, wives, career women...no matter how busy these ladies are or what obstacles they’ve had to overcome to get here, they not only show up for class but they absolutely kill it! I am always touched when they share their stories with me. 

 

That song on your iPod you don’t want anyone to know you have.
A lot of 90’s boy bands. 98 Degrees anyone?

You’re splurging...what’s your weakness?  
I love to shop! I love clothes. It’s an issue. But what I probably spend the most money on these days is wine...I should really invest in a winery.
 
Meghan-5_adj

 

One thing on your bucket list. 
I just want to travel!


Celebrity dinner party: who’s there? 
I have a lot of people on this list! Definitely Amy Schumer and Jennifer Lawrence. They are strong, hilarious, down-to-earth women who aren’t afraid to be themselves (and who doesn’t love a good laugh??). And also Matt Damon and Ben Affleck...I’m a Boston girl!

From the Barre to the Boulevard: Kim Edition



Kim_Gear_1_adj


We're closing out another amazing month, with another amazing "It-Girl". Kim rocked October from the bike to the barre. When she hit the streets in these styles though, she was definitely turning heads! It was all about creating petite-friendly looks for Kim's small frame while also tapping into the hottest Fall trends.

Kim_Gear_4_adj

Even if your vision isn't 20/20 you would be remiss not to notice that plaids and checks are the season's print du jour. Adding one into your wardrobe feels completely festive and gives your autumn attire something special. However, when you are on the smaller side, if these prints are on the wrong cut of fabric, they can look overwhelming or even dowdy. Sinful if you ask me, especially for how hard this hot mommy of two works to keep her physique svelte and toned.

I found her the perfect buffalo check blanket sweater {by Bar III via Macy's} that fits in all the right places while still being a bit dramatic. The sleeves are the key factor here to keeping her proportion in check {no pun intended} and allowing this piece to be flouncy at the hem. 

 Kim_Gear_5_adj


This sweater was so versatile adding so much to a jeans, tee, and knee-high boots ensemble for day and perfectly framing a wine hued mini-dress for night. Isn't that what we all want from our wardrobe, pieces that do double duty just like this fab barre-tender ;)

Our October #LBItGirl, Kim!



On tap this month is our October #LBItGirl, Kim!

Was there an interesting path that led you to teaching at Barre? 
I was a displaced fitness instructor from Philadelphia looking for an amazing workout upon moving to Hoboken. I immediately found Barre/Wheel at Local Barre. It was all over after taking my first class ;).

Health enthusiast? Tell us about your diet...vegan? raw? raw til 4? recipes? favorite seasonal dish or smoothie?
I am a huge believer in “everything in moderation”. I practice this and have my private clients practice it as well. If you go overboard, don’t think of your day/diet/otherwise as “wasted” or “lost” - you can right your ship whenever you decide to get back on track! For smoothies: water//kale//protein powder//apple//orange//banana//bee pollen//flax seed//chia seeds. For salads: arugula//watermelon//grape tomatoes//red onion//feta cheese//white balsamic vinegrette homemade dressing.

 

Kim-11_adj_web


Your go-to travel spot and why. 

The beach; my spirit is immediately lifted when near the ocean. 


What’s been essential to your success?
My drive and perseverance. Not being afraid to work hard and not being afraid to hear the word “no”.

Wine. Cheese. I’ve never met a cheese I didn’t like.
