Many trainers have always been athletic, however, this is not the case for Barbara Arn. Weighing 200 pounds in high school Barbara had to work hard to gain strength and lose fat. She knows firsthand what it is like to try and make this commitment to health and fitness. During Barbara’s time in college studying Acting for Film and Television, she fell in love with fitness. Barbara began exploring various fields to learn different approaches to fitness including weight lifting, tai chi, stunt fighting, yoga, dance, and cheerleading. Gaining this wide knowledge base has given her the necessary skills to help clients with strength and mobility, in addition to her speciality in weight loss. Barbara's main goal is to inspire clients to look and feel their best, as well to gain confidence and skills in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
