Barre Above®: Prime Certification
Instructor Training

Sunday, Feb 23, 2020

Colleen developed a deep-rooted love for group fitness over ten years ago as a student, and knew that she had found her calling as an instructor when she certified in her first specialty format. Since then, Colleen has added her ACE Group Fitness Certification, as well as certifications in HIGH Fitness and Balletone, and is a Master Trainer for both Barre Above and Extreme HIIT Chaos. In addition to teaching classes, Colleen is an ATHLETA Ambassador at The Bellevue Collection where she leads monthly community classes and workouts. Colleen’s classes are fun, tough, and all-inclusive. It is her passion to make sure each of her students feel safe, cared for, and challenged. When Colleen isn’t teaching classes and working on getting people moving, she and her husband love spending time with their two young sons, hiking, being outside (when it’s not raining), cooking, being with family, and exploring their home state of Washington.
