Barre Hop - wear sneakers


This class is taught by:

Katie Hirleman

“There is a unique story to everyone who walks in our doors, and I love being a part of their journeys toward health.”
 
Katie’s sweet smile quickly turns to business in her tough, well planned sequences of working one body part to the next. With loud, fun music, her classes inspire each client to listen to their own bodies and push past their perceived comfort zones. She loves catering to the unique personalities and fitness levels of clients who each come to work their hardest, appreciating the community of support that brings it all together. Her biggest challenge yet? Motherhood: “It has exposed my weaknesses, my selfishness, my desire for controlling my own little world and challenged me to change for the better. We never know we can do something until we try - and we never become stronger unless we rise to the challenge.”

Francie Bradley

“No matter how blah I feel walking into the studio, within the first 5 minutes of class it’s as if my brain has been completely cleared of all negativity - Fusion is my therapy.”
 
“After having two kids I needed something to kick my body into gear, and I found it at Fusion,” she says, loving the opportunity every day to spread that same benefits to clients. Francie’s sense of humor creates a fun and confident environment to lead clients through challenging and creative sequences - she operates at top speed and enjoys motivating clients to push themselves harder than they think possible. “Not a day goes by that I leave the studio without having had a client impact my life in a positive way - Fusion is an adrenaline rush that sticks with you for the rest of the day.”

Sadie Durbin

“On our mats, we’re all working towards the same goal of improving ourselves so we can better contribute to our families, jobs and communities… it’s so much more than just a workout.”
 
A powerhouse not to be taken lightly, Sadie rocks our studios with her tough coaching and even tougher moves - but clients love a ‘Sadie class’ to strengthen more than just their bodies. “The passion, positivity, and clarity I gain from our studios is unmatchable and makes me thrive,” she says, “I couldn’t imagine my life without this community of women who support each other without judgment.” Following her son’s diagnosis of leukemia, she witnessed the full effect of such a supportive community - and knows our clients come to Fusion not only to get the best workout in KC, but as an addition to, and to gain encouragement for, their lives.
 
 

Alex Muesenfechter

“We live in a world that breeds such hostile competition among women - at Fusion, you find all of these amazing women that consistently build you up.”
 
Our own Ironman competitor, Alex has trained extensively in nutrition and endurance training and brings her love of challenging her own limits to clients at Fusion. Teaching regular classes as well as being involved in our Fusion Run program catering to long distance runners, Alex has the knowledge our clients need. She’s also passionate about educating the next generation, especially in city schools, about the importance of a healthy diet: “it benefits the entire community to ensure kids are offered their basic educational and nutritional needs.” As for her impressive Ironman experience - she plans to do another, craving more of the “self-discovery in realizing that I can push through my mental and physical challenges.”
This class is a blast as you hop back and forth between cardio sequences and toning moves at the barre. The muscle group focus is strategic to maximize your workout and to keep your mind and heart rate guessing all hour!
