Exercise is challenging, and people frequently give up on their fitness routines. How do you keep clients motivated?
Each one of our classes is designed to give you variety. No class will ever be the same, so you never know what you're going to have thrown at you.
What is the biggest mistake you see people make when trying to get fit on their own?
People try to take on too much when the go it alone. Our instructors can scale down any program to fit any level of fitness so that you can still move the next day.
When and how did you first develop a passion for fitness?
In 2002, after hitting 250 pounds, I decided I needed a change. I started watching my diet and exercising. In 2009, I earned my group fitness instructor certificate. After my first Warrior Dash in 2012, I realized that helping others to accomplish their goals was what I wanted to do with my life.

Mat maven Colette Barry's signature Barry Method of instruction draws from her years of kinesthetic expertise, combining the lengthening sequences of yoga with the strengthening exercises of Pilates. A robust schedule grants Colette and her staff of instructors ample opportunities to guide students through the muscle-reforming routine throughout the week. Precise movements and isometric conditioning target restricting back and shoulder pains by realigning wayward postures while forging a mind-body connection that is more focused than a medical laser studying for the MCAT. By enlisting the gravity-subduing technology of Total Trainer apparatuses, Barry Method sessions ensure a physique-toning workout for students regardless of their physical ability or levitation skills.
When Roald Dahl wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, he imagined a much-coveted golden ticket that granted access to myriad wonders and unveiled the inner workings of an entire industry. MetaBody created a real-life version of that ticket with the MetaBody Yoga & Fitness Pass, though it applies to fitness instead of candy. The pass grants access not to a single gym but to classes at a variety of local studios, specializing in everything from yoga to boot camp. With the freedom to move from location to location, students can sample different regimens, instructors, and styles of exercise to cobble together a program that fits their needs and goals. MetaBody's nutritionists supplement class packages by coaching clients in healthy eating, recipe cooking, and speed-reading nutrition-fact labels.
Though the certified instructors at Zen in the District – Yoga each lay claim to different style specialties—Hatha, Vinyasa, Sanga, and Amrite among them—they share the aim of heightened self-awareness. Their classes cater to all fitness levels, focusing on introspection more than flawless posing technique or perfect nostril positioning during breath work. Whether they are inside the studio or on the courthouse lawn across the street, the teachers strive to downplay stress with caring vibes. They also apply their compassion to community projects, demonstrating yoga for interested Girl Scout troops and regularly donating to the Seagate Food Bank.
