Santa Monica, CA (PRWEB) November 12, 2013 - Nearly 13 years after founder Richard Giorla came up with the Cardio Barre® concept, the franchise is finally hitting the Westside thanks to Managing Partners Lauren Faretta and Tamara Hakim.
Cardio Barre is a high energy no impact exercise class combines barre work and light weights to transform bodies and empower minds. Essential to the workout are toning and resistance exercises for the buttocks, legs, torso and arms to sculpt muscles and elongate the appearance of your body through continual fat burning motion. No kicking, no punching, no jumping up and down, just exercises that lengthen and strengthen your muscles.
Both being Cardio Barre enthusiasts, Lauren and Tamara hope to transform the bodies and lives of Santa Monicans with the workout that people are calling a muscle-sculpting sensation. The ladies believe in the method so much that they fought for four years to get their franchise open.
"We stuck through an extremely challenging process for 4 years to get Cardio Barre Santa Monica up and running. We had every door shut in our face and many people told us to give up. Yet we persisted and followed our instincts. When you want something and work hard to get it, it is then when you see the miracle come to life. That is exactly what Cardio Barre represents," says Lauren of their journey.
Tamara has seen the positive effects of the workout through 8 years of Cardio Barre experience and says she can’t wait to transform and unite the community. "Cardio Barre has really given me the opportunity to change lives. I’ve seen people gain so much confidence and strength (both mental and physical) in just the first few weeks of our opening. I’m so thankful and excited to share this workout with Santa Monica!"
Cardio Barre Santa Monica is now open and offering classes 7 days a week. Classes range from Intro to Advanced and a full schedule can be viewed on the studio’s website at http://cardiobarre.com/studios/santa-monica-ca/.
