Barre Instructor

Karly started ballet, tap, and gymnastics at a very young age and eventually grew into a long successful career in competitive cheerleading. Karly continued to grow her passion for fitness through long distance running but missed the spark cheering gave.  Barre reignited that spark & allowed Karly to connect deeper with her body & challenge muscles in the same way that cheer did. When not in the studio or on a run Karly is a registered dietitian nutritionist helping people fuel their bodies appropriately to feel their best! Karly just opened her own Nutrition & Dietetics practice in Linwood.
