Instructor Training

Saturday, Mar 27, 2021

Kirstin is a fitness professional helping people reach their personal best through group fitness in a fun, energetic and inclusive environment! Her primary focus and passion is Barre, a fusion class including elements of Pilates, yoga, strength training and ballet. Kirstin believes in teaching classes that allow all participants to be successful. She provides exercise options for those who are avid gym-goers, those who are just now making the exercise a part of their lifestyle, and even those coming off injuries. Kirstin is a Barre Above® Master Trainer, and a professionally certified Group Fitness Instructor with the American Council on Exercise (ACE). She also holds two cycling certifications. Education and remaining current on the most recent scientific data for exercise and wellness are of the utmost importance to Kirstin. She has studied exercise for low back health, prenatal and postnatal exercise, exercise and mental health and psychology of group fitness among other topics. Kirstin began her journey into fitness in the summer of 6th grade when she discovered Denise Austin’s early morning 30-minute exercise show on television. She got up every weekday that summer at 6:30am to exercise with soup cans for dumbbells! After high school, Kirstin worked at a local gym during college and eventually made her way to Operations Manager. Kirstin moved into healthcare administration as a career, and holds a Masters in Healthcare Administration. After 12 years in healthcare where she spent her last three years working in the senior care industry, Kirstin became a stay-at-home to her two daughters, and journeyed back into fitness. Kirstin is passionate about teaching people functional exercises that enhance their activities of daily living (ADLs) and empower them physically, so when they hit that senior age (or even if they already are), they can live independently and safely in their own homes as long as possible!
