Barre


This class is taught by:

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.
 
 

Britt Cali

Growing up being active was always part of Britt’s lifestyle. Running track and cross country in high school and continuing to work out in college, staying healthy was always a high priority to her. When she graduated from Mizzou in 2013 and moved home to Kansas City, she completed some half marathons and found Fusion. She was instantly hooked! Fusion toned muscles in a way that running just didn’t. That along with the people, the music, the energy at the studios kept Britt coming back for more. Working full time at her family’s business required Britt to find a workout that that was fast/effective and that’s exactly why she feels fusion is the best method there is in KC. Britt's classes are so fun you will get lost in the workout and have an amazing power hour!

A quote from Britt. "The main reason I love fusion so much is that even after being a client here for 4 + years, the classes STILL kick my butt. Every time. I have never left one fusion class and thought “oh that was easy.” That’s why I love this place. It’s constantly changing/challenging me to push past my comfort zone and still leaves my muscles sore, week after week. I truly feel Fusion has made me the best version of myself and I can’t wait to give that feeling back to clients as an instructor!"

Anne Lock

“There is an energy at Fusion that is unique to anywhere else I’ve been - people here want to succeed, and they want everyone else around them to succeed as well.”
 
Anne’s mellow presence quickly turns to work mode when the studio doors shut and the music blares. Her creative movements flow from one body part to the next, burning out muscle groups and spiking the heart rate quickly. “I love the clients here because a)they work harder than anywhere I’ve ever seen, and b)they come game for anything.” As a client she made sure to mix her classes and “never to get in a routine of just taking one style of class,” so as an instructor she knows the importance of changing it up from one hour to the next. “The culture here is unmatched - with all of us from the instructors to the clients being genuinely excited to be here - we get the job done each time.”

Brooke Degnan

“Fusion was the most challenging class I had ever taken - I truly believe this concept is the ultimate recipe for fitness success.”
 
Equipped with a deep understanding of the body from her years as a ballet dancer and fitness trainer, Brooke knows what it takes to make the transformations her clients desire. Whether it’s building cardio endurance or focusing on building stronger muscles, clients love her attention to form and pushing them to their max. “Fusion’s method is the answer for all of us - providing a solid emphasis on forming lean muscle, pure devotion to creating a strong core, and an upbeat, fast-paced class to maintain an elevated heart rate - you can’t go wrong.” Imitating her amazing form provides constant motivation to keep moving during class, and Brooke’s sense of humor makes the time move quickly throughout her hour-long, full body workouts.

Meghann Martens

“The motivation, support, and love of this Sweaty Sisterhood is truly palpable in every class.”

Meghann’s ballet background is obvious in her graceful movements - but a minute in one of her classes shows the other side of her, too - loud, strong, and motivating. From her vibrant music to her move combinations dedicated to toning and strengthening long, lean muscles, clients are led through a killer workout each time. “When I first came to Fusion, I had never felt such a full body workout and transformation from a class - not to mention the completely infectious energy radiating from the studio.” Meghann’s fitness knowledge and passion for teaching Fusion is apparent - she guarantees to provide clients with an hour to get the most out of each and every class she teaches.

 

Stephanie Eppler

“I love to watch a client that has walked into class looking tired, stressed and overwhelmed - leave with a new sense of self, positive attitude and feeling of accomplishment.”

Stephanie began dancing as a young girl - studying in a unique opportunity at age 16 began her professional career and lifelong love of ballet and fitness. Thriving on the structure, challenge and focus of being at the barre, Stephanie brings her engrained discipline to each class she teaches. “Fusion has been my happy place since the day I started after the birth of my second daughter - where I could come for an hour to challenge myself, accomplish a goal, and get away from outside pressures,” she says. Loving our intense, high energy style at Fusion as a client for years, she began as an instructor knowing each class is “so challenging you must be able to smile and laugh a bit while you’re doing it - very similar to my outlook on life.”

 

Shauna Pierce

“I love the contagious atmosphere of Fusion - everyone coming to work their bodies to the max!”
 
Shauna’s passion for leading a class full of clients stems from her years as a middle school teacher - helping people change their outlooks from negative to positive is what inspires her most. Shauna’s energy spreads throughout the room and she loves seeing clients’ everyday dedication to bettering themselves. From her killer music (she loves a good Throwback Thursday full of old school R&B) to her beautiful posture & form, Shauna’s classes will challenge your body and strengthen your confidence as you keep up with her creative moves.
 
 

Becca Parisi

“I love the fast paced, high intensity but very intentionally planned classes with no wasted time - the atmosphere is so fun and encouraging.”
 
A self-professed “cardio junkie,” Becca loves to bring the energy and get clients moving. “I like to jump in, get super sweaty, heart pounding, high intensity, energetic, fast paced, and “get it done” in one hour,” she says, and she’s not exaggerating. Clients love how her fitness fanatic side is rounded out with her positive attitude, always willing to stay and chat, sharing her continuing search for self acceptance and love that we are all searching for. “We aren’t defined by what we do (accomplishes or failures), by what we have or don’t have, or what others think about us. Fusion is full of encouragement to push ourselves further than we normally would - such a positive environment for challenge and growth!”
This high energy class creates a lean, firm, sculpted body. Our barre class is a combination of isolated muscle burnout and low-impact cardio. This effective combination is one of our original creations to shock your body!
