Our story started years ago, when a childhood friend of Kayla’s put a ring on Gigi’s finger and brought us together. We have always found a connection through health and fitness, and joked about opening a barre studio together in the south coast. It seemed like it could be a great partnership, however the timing was not quite there, Kayla was just beginning a family and Gigi was living in Boston.


Fast forward, 5 years later and we found ourselves living minutes from downtown New Bedford. Kayla, has been addicted to barre fitness since her first class 10 years ago. She started teaching barre 7 years ago and her experience has allowed her to form her own unique style. Gigi, an avid class taker has always dreamed of being a fitness instructor and enjoys helping friends with marketing and sales consulting.


While not much has changed since our first conversation, we have one more shared passion, building something special to help transform our community of New Bedford.


 We are so delighted to be finally embarking on the journey to open The Barre, New Bedford’s first barre fitness studio! We opened September 5th and can't be more excited to see where this journey takes us.


We can't wait to meet you at The Barre!




Kayla and Gigi
