We've heard a lot of disparaging things about 2016, as we are nearly a week separated from it already! However, when reflecting back on the year our amazing studio has had we were just in awe. We came, we saw, we learned, we changed and we're entering 2017 as an evolved version of ourselves. Studio Poise is turning 5 in May and we have SO much goodness up our sleeves we can't wait to share. But, before we get to that, we are excited to share some highlights of our 2016! Thank you for spending the year with us, #poisenation. We can't wait to sweat, sparkle and smile together for another year!
*New classes were added and the packed waitlists showed you can't get enough of Box and Flow, Booty by Bradley, Barre Belles, Arm Candy, Body by Bradley, Poise Fire, Poise Gentle Flow, Poise n* Kick and of course The Bar(re) By Studio Poise!
*Old favorites returned including POUND, Nothin’ But Leg and Poiseboarde (but this time, our ladies take to the water for a killer SUP meets Poise workout!). We love having these classes back on the schedule and are super STOKED to team back up with SUP East Coast Style again this Summer to bring you even more and better Poiseboarde classes in Marblehead!
*We continued learning and refining our craft. Diana earned her 200-hour yoga training, Erica received her AFAA group fitness certification, and Danielle training majority of our staff in the world-famous Lotte Berk Method of Barre Fitness, as taught to her by barre-icons Fred Devito and Elisabeth Halfpapp!
*We had some KILLER pop up classes - High Heels Dance, Poised-Robics, Cardio Queens, Cardio Queens Duel, Poised & Relaxed (now a monthly Sunday occurence) and of course Danielle's new, killer, can't get anywhere else, Booty by Bradley and Body by Bradley workouts!
* We got Blacked Out at the Barre, (literally, at King's bar), we supported our men in Movember, and we donated to charities near and dear to us (MYL, Susan Komen, OneFund).
*The SP community transformed, celebrated our successes and supported each other through all of life's challenges. We watched people get engaged, married, pregnant, and become mothers! We watched bonds be created and women literally change their lives. The friendships formed here are truly like no other. Check out some of our personal favorite transformations:
*And on a personal note here at SP, 2016 ushered in marriages (Courtney Doucette!), engagements (Diana Davis and Claudia Mellini!), babies (Alycia Rose Quigley and Evelyn Kennedy White!), babies pending arrival (Danielle is expecting her second son in just 15 months from JJ's birth this March!) and new homes (Erica, Kelsey and Brittany all bought new homes this year!). Along with countless other milestones (like Erica’s Boston marathon completion) achieved as a group and a community. ❤
Please raise a glass and toast with us to an amazing year and a bright future.
Happy New Year, #poisenation!
