Become a Barre Teacher | ABT Official Online Barre CertificationIt was always hard for me to thoroughly enjoy working out until I discovered Barre. The very first barre workout I took was the Ballet Body DVD. The workout was challenging, yet doable for me, and I couldn’t believe how fast my body responded to the exercises. I was never one to have a “toned” or “sculpted” look until I did the barre workout regularly. I became more interested in taking barre classes in my home town (and finally felt confident enough to venture out) so I visited my local gym and started taking barre classes there.
It didn’t take long for me to realize how obsessed I had become with barre. My barre teacher at the time approached me and asked if I had ever considered teaching a class or too, since I loved it so much. That thought hadn’t crossed my mind until that moment. Then I had my “aha” moment. I knew that teaching barre was my calling and that I should follow my heart doing what I truly love. I was so excited to start this journey in becoming a certified barre instructor, but didn’t know how to make it a reality. I met with my barre teacher to get some advice from her (she’s an incredible instructor.) She recommended me to get barre certified by American Barre Technique, that’s who she got certified by, and said I will be able to teach as soon as I complete their online barre teacher training course.
As soon as I got home from our meeting I enrolled with American Barre Technique right away. The online barre certification was perfect for me, I was able to complete it in my spare time and at my own pace. I got barre certified fairly quickly and got hired immediately at the gym. I invited my friends and family to start taking my classes and they all got hooked on barre! Fast forward to now, my barre classes are always packed and I’m still loving the workout and its body benefits. I followed my heart and now I get to do what I love every day. If you haven’t taken the leap of faith I suggest doing it. This is your life, you’ve only got one so live it the way you’ve dreamed.
