We are always thrilled to add new talent to the pool of Community Fitness instructors, and Olivia is no exception! Come check out her Barre class on Fridays at 8:30am at our 65th St. Studio, and read on to learn more about Olivia and her classes! 

When you aren’t at Community Fitness, what do you do? 

When I am not at Cfit I am exploring Washington with my husband! We love discovering new restaurants, hiking trails, and biking to neighborhood farmers markets. I also enjoy finding new ingredients and recipes and cooking with my husband. We usually set off the fire alarm, but we are working on our culinary skills! Right now I am training for my 3rd half marathon, so running has been filling the rest of my time!

How did you discover Barre, and what do you love most about it? 

I have been dancing all of my life, and ballet was always a favorite. I discovered Barre when I moved to Seattle and fell in love with the group fitness ballet format! I find choreography is one of my favorite forms of creativity, which makes class-planning fun. My favorite thing about barre is the mind-body connection. Correct form is so critical, you are forced to keep your mind active while your legs shake!

If you could have any skill/knowledge/superpower, what would it be? 

If I had to pick a superpower it would be flying … how fun would that be?!

What are you most passionate about in life? 

I am most passionate about people. Being around and working with others gives me energy and joy. Building relationships and community is such a beautiful thing, and I am so thankful I have a job where I get to be around fabulous people all day!

What do you want people to know about your classes? 

Get ready to sweat! I enjoy incorporating a good amount of cardio into my barre classes 🙂
