Barre Above®: Prime Certification
Instructor Training

Saturday, Aug 6, 2022

After graduating from the University of Kentucky and working in the Interior Design field for several years, Tabatha took some time off to become a stay-at-home mom. During this time, Tabatha decided to get her health in check and joined her local YMCA where she discovered a love for group fitness. This love turned into to a career she never would have imagined when she decided to become a certified instructor. With over 5 years’ experience in the fitness industry, Tabatha has taught many formats including Pilates, HIIT, Core, Bootcamp, Dance Fitness, but her true passion is teaching Barre. She not only teaches group fitness at the same gym she joined all those years ago, but also teaches Barre at a local yoga studio in her hometown. Tabatha prides herself on encouraging others to challenge themselves to do their best while having fun! When Tabatha is not teaching, she enjoys running, hiking, traveling, and being with her husband and two boys.
