Kim-studio owner, BarreAmped Advanced Instructor
I have so many people want to know “my story.” Why me? Why barre?
I have always been into exercise. Whether it be taking fitness classes or just walking miles on a backroad. Count me in!
My story goes a little something like this: I had been doing Crossfit for 2 years but I had been researching and was really wanting to try barre. I was just so dang nervous and did not want to go alone!
A sweet friend of mine called me up and said she had found a studio and that we should go take a class.
The night before my first class, I barely slept. I kid you not. I was so nervous.
Before I even finished my first class I knew. I knew I wanted to teach barre. I loved it that much. I was hooked. Like wanted to share it with everyone. But how? Not me. No way. I teach small children not women. I even tried to talk myself out of it several times. But, I kicked that self-doubt to the curb and decided to be the girl who went for it!
I have completed Level 1 & Level 2 (Advanced Certifications) as well as Band Sculpt, Barre n Pow(h)er,  Bootcamp, and Tabata style class certifications. I look forward to bringing the heat and energy to every single class I teach!

When I am not at the barre, you can find me teaching preschool or making headbands for my Etsy shop. My other hobbies include shopping and gardening.
I have been married to my wonderful husband Tyler for 10 years and we have 2 children: Rome (7) and Livy Sue (5).

Beckie has always led a very active lifestyle. However, even through 4 half marathon trainings and working out countless hours in gyms, she never found the types of results she has found with Barre Amped.

“To be honest, before my first class I didn’t even know what Barre was. Once the music and class started, I was hooked. Only after a few classes I could tell a difference. I felt stronger, more flexible, and more core strength. Even better than that, was the mind body connection that I felt. I am very passionate about barre and was blown away at how effective it is. I only wish I had discovered it earlier in my life.”

Beckie can’t wait to get to the Barre. Whether it’s her day to teach or not. You will find her in a class every single day. ‘It’s more than just a class..we are a family.”

Beckie is certified in All Level 1 & 2 formats as well as Bootcamp, Tabata and Band Sculpt. She is also a 200 hour certified yoga instructor. Her certifications include: yoga back, prenatal yoga, aromatherapy & restorative. She loves the burn and challenge that each class offers.

When she is not at the Barre, she can be found piddling in photography, playing fixer upper, shopping, or traveling {and she often finds barre studios in different areas of the country to drop in and visit.}

She is married to her wonderful husband Rick of 28 years. She has 5 children and 4 grandchildren.
