iNSiDE Out STUDiO barre
When people fall in love, they often dream about buying a home or travelling the world together. This wasn’t the case for sweethearts Janine Goulet and Greg Charron—they dreamed of opening a barre-fitness studio together. Thus, iNSiDE Out STUDiO barre was born. The duo leads low-impact barre workouts inspired by ballet, yoga, and Pilates with the intention of melting stress and calories. Drawing from the Lotte Berk method, a conditioning program for ballerinas, they aim to enhance strength and flexibility by using isometric exercises, which may also improve posture, hone balance, and help clients finally fit into old nutcracker costumes from their high school glory days. Janine taps into her motivational-speaking background to push students toward their goals, and Greg supplements workouts with a decade’s worth of knowledge about strength training and nutrition.
