‘Life, Liberty and the Pursuit of Happiness’ – these powerful words are uniquely and undeniably American. This American Dreams series features ordinary people with extraordinary stories of success and advice for making the most of your dreams. It reiterates the importance of shop local + share local, a part of our culture that makes Central Arkansas unique.
Full Out Barre is bringing the best of soul and sweat together.
With a mission + strategy to help clients become their FULL OUT BEST, the Full Out Barre specialized program guides clients through an inspirational, high energy fitness experience that benefits the body and soul. Signature FOB classes combine popular barre lengthening exercises with high intensity interval training for maximum caloric burn. Classes can be adapted for all fitness levels cleared to exercise and are choreographed to fun and motivating music.
Master instructor and creator, Catherine Thorpe, brings nearly two decades of teaching and training experience to the studio – infused with a sense of community + FUN. Her approach to fitness combines a unique opportunity for Full Out Barre to change you – body and soul.
Catherine’s tenure as an NFL cheerleader, dance coach and dance instructor is a testament to her tenacity and enthusiasm, and Full Out Barre feels more like an inclusive, tribal cheer session than a work out.
The first Arkansas-born fitness brand to obtain AFAA, ACE and NASM accreditation, Full Out Barre holds classes in Shuffles/Ballet II, and has an affiliate program for other dance studios interested in earning extra income by hosting a FOB.
Their flagship location boasts five studios for a variety of classes along with training equipment for participants. The space also features dance floors constructed with springs to reduce impact. With a wide range of class times and options, there is something for everyone.
