Amy O’Connell, a Colorado native, is a competitive runner – from 10k’s to 100 mile races in the Rocky Mountains and Alps – she loves pushing past her limits. She has a love for all things fitness and discovered barre as a way to build strength, prevent injury and improve her running performance. When Amy was pregnant with her son, she discovered her passion for barre went beyond running – barre offers something for the athlete in all of us – and the results are incredible. She loves helping others achieve their fitness goals and realizing that anything is possible. With her partner Sarah, opening the Barre Forte studio in LoHi is a dream come true and she is very excited to show people how they can meet their best.
Sarah Brittenham, a Colorado native, grew up with a love of athletics and the outdoors. In college she developed a passion for running, and all things fitness. After moving to Denver she was able to combine her love of running and the outdoors and became an avid trail runner, competing in ultra races of all distances, including the Leadville Trail 100. She took her first Barre class in 2009, and immediately fell in love. It was the perfect workout, changing her body in a way no other workout had, while keeping her injury free. During her first visit to a Barre Forte studio she knew she had found something special; a kick ass workout, and an amazing community of women pushing each other to meet their best. She is thrilled to be opening Barre Forte LoHi with her friend Amy and can’t wait to tuck and tone with you all!
