A Word From Our Students

Lauren J.

I’ve been a member for years, and I’m so glad I found this place! Laci is upbeat, and the classes are so fun that I don’t even know I’m working out. You wanna be buff-pants? You can do that here. Working on your grace? Check. Expand your repertoire of sexy moves? She can show you some. There’s a bunch of different styles of classes, and the website explains it all. Plus, who DOESN’T love flipping upside down and whatnot?!

Lauren J.

My first ever experience in this setting and I absolutely love these classes! Anyone out there nervous of trying don’t be. She is a fantastic teacher and as a newbie, with almost no muscle, I need all the help I can get. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a fun motivating environment to get fit!

I have been a member at The Vertical Barre since 2012 and I could not imagine my life without this and the amazing woman who runs it. I had tried just about all the traditional fitness studios and activities out there. Kickboxing, zumba, workout videos, running, various gym classes, etc. You name it, I probably tried it. Unfortunately, nothing ever held my interest for long, until I found The Vertical Barre. TVB forced me to push my limits and see just what my body was capable. I have gained more self confidence than I have ever had. I can truly be myself here and I owe it all to the amazing people at The Vertical Barre who have become my pole family.

As a person who absolutely detests working out for the sake of fitness, I LOVE that the Vertical Barre offers a fun challenge with attainable goals all the while I am benefiting physically. It has become a much welcomed highlight in my week, and a solution to exercising strictly out of obligation. Laci exudes great energy, and always has something positive to say no matter how much work I may need. I am so thankful for this place.

Crazy fun! Good atmosphere, awesome instructor and an overall fun time. Didn’t really know what to expect the first time i went but totally worth it. You’ll definitely see a definite change after a few classes.

David S.

My favorite place to go and work out!! I have never had a bad experience in the past 3 years that I have gone off and on! I love to do the fitness classes and if I just want to have a good time. They have so many options for classes there is no doubt you will find one perfect for you.

I started here at The Vertical Barre 4 years ago. I instantly fell in love with it. I absolutely hate working but pole fitness has me loving it. It’s fun, challenging, and very empowering. The instructor has a saying ” just because you can’t do something now, it just means you can’t do it yet. This place changed my life!
