The Vision of Barre Beauty
After teaching barre in local studios and large barre chains, Gina Gulyan had a much larger vision for Barre Beauty. Although her studio was based around the highly effective, low impact barre style workout, Gina wanted Barre Beauty to feel like a home for people regardless of their physiques or ability levels. She wanted people to feel good about themselves, find friendships, and give their overall health a boost in the right direction.
Ultimately, Gina wanted to help each and every member of her studio find their path to physical and inner well-being. That is what differentiates Barre Beauty from all other barre studios. It is not only the physical results and increased self-confidence gained for all who enter, but also its ability to create healthy habits while providing a sisterhood filled with self-love, worth and strength. Barre Beauty has become a home for women in search of a non-judgmental, intimidation-free gym where they can finally “fit in,” feel secure in themselves, and build friendships.
The Barre Method itself was created around dance positioning in ballet combined with Pilates in effort to work each muscle group to fatigue while burning away calories. Barre workouts create a toned, lean look without the risk of bulking up. Barre can also be used for rehabilitation purposes for any individual, in any shape, at any fitness level. Barre incorporates the use of small weights (2, 3 or 5 lbs. free weights), resistance bands, small medicine balls and body weight into each class to ensure that each muscle group is stimulated in a variety of ways. The endurance that is gained from taking barre classes can create durability and strength as well as open doors for other workout methods. In most cases, clients drop a large percentage of body fat, cholesterol points, as well as improve their BMI numbers tremendously within only a few weeks. The overall health improvement in women, men, young adults and now athletes emphasizes the effectiveness of the barre method. Due to its popularity and overall effectiveness, barre has become a healthy addiction for nearly every individual who has tried it.
When creating Barre Beauty, Gina’s vision was to expose this amazing, highly-effective workout to all by proving to her clients that “healthy is beautiful,” which is more than just an overall appearance. Barre Beauty’s workout can be used regardless of the client’s shape or size and results in losing inches, dropping body fat, decreasing cholesterol points, and most importantly creating and boosting confidence for every client that walks through Barre Beauty’s doors.
Barre Beauty emphasizes each client’s inner beauty first, then builds the confidence from within an individual by showing them their “can-do” potential and producing the results they always wanted. Barre Beauty has created a movement where age, weight, race, background and everything else that matters in every day- to-day life is left at the door, only to expose each individual’s true beauty from within. It is a long-lasting feeling and relationship that begins at the door and withstands the test of time. Most clients love having a place to create friendships, build muscular endurance and strength, get away from the stressors of their everyday lives and even cure post-partum.
Barre Beauty also offers childcare services which most Colorado based Barre studios do not. With just a small drop in fee or an add on to their membership, clients can now enjoy their classes while one of Barre Beauty’s highly qualified staff members takes care of their children.
Barre Beauty has now created more class formats based on all the client’s needs and scheduled them at convenient times to fit everyone’s busy schedules. (Barre Beauty-our classic most popular barre class, Yoga, Vinyasa Yoga, Cardio Barre, Fit Barre, Bootcamp Barre, HIIT The Barre, Barre Fusion, Hot Barre, Blackout Barre).
If that was not enough, Barre Beauty is highly involved within our community! Barre Beauty has many partnerships around the area and on the web. Gina used her hardships and struggles that she overcame in creating Barre Beauty to help fellow small businesses in the area get their start through cross marketing opportunities on and offline. Clients can now take advantage of discounted prices at local fitness and wellness places, as well as purchase nutritionally sound supplements at discounted prices.
Barre Beauty consistently hosts networking nights, theme nights, ladies nights at the “barre,” as well as free classes for many charity auctions and much more.
Barre Beauty was created to be so much more than a barre studio. It has only begun to flourish and has already made a tremendous impact on so many lives since the minute it opened its doors. We cannot wait to see what we can do for years to come…
