MEMBER SPOTLIGHT: BARRE3 SCOTTSDALE
barre3 Scottsdale is a full-body functional workout studio combining strength conditioning, cardio, and mindfulness. In terms of movement, think of the fundamentals of ballet, the strengthening of pilates, and the stretching of yoga.
The heart-pumping classes, encouraging instructors, and the inspiring community at barre3 Scottsdale help you to achieve physical results in your personal fitness journey. However, it is the emphasis they place on intentionally shifting the perspective of how your workouts make you look, to how they make you feel, that makes this special studio a beloved space to many in the Valley.

Whether you take a class in-studio, through live stream, or at one of their outdoor events, a barre3 workout is sure to leave you feeling stronger and more confident. Like the small and intensely focused exercises you do in a barre3 workout, this intention shift taps into the transformative potential of engagement at a deeper level, by putting mindfulness into movement.
We are thrilled to introduce you to barre 3 Scottsdale studio owner, Karie Johnson, who along with her team of instructors, is helping redefine what success in fitness means.
Karie brings passion and enthusiasm to everything she does. Whether it’s teaching, running the barre3 North Scottsdale studio, or raising her three kids alongside her husband and business partner, Adam, she believes in seeking a balance between work and life.
When she’s not in the studio you’ll find this former elementary school teacher and Phoenix native spending time with her family – hiking, and biking in the beautiful AZ weather.
