Barre fitness has something that other exercise forms don’t have - it originates from an art form (ballet), a place of creativity and discipline. That means that barre classes although physically challenging are not bound by a ridged set of movements but are expressions of the Instructors creativity. Recently, I have observed that our Barre Studio seems to attract women who display qualities of creativity and discipline expressed through an entrepreneurial spirit to make something wonderful …
Their creativity has led them all to start their own businesses and their tenacity and discipline (well exercised in Barre!) has made these dreams realities.
So without further delay, let us meet and be inspired by some of the Business Barre Babes that we are proud to have at the Aleenta BARRE Gold Coast Studio.
Meet Karrie – Founder of Mi Tierra Colombian Coffee
Hola Barre amigas, my name is Karime but you can call me Kari. I'm a Colombian chica, passionate coffee lover and business owner of Mi Tierra Colombian Coffee Shop. Over the last 8 years, I've acquired extensive knowledge in the coffee industry, from Colombia, London and Australia. I noticed there was many coffee shops offering Colombian coffee in Australia but none of them were owned by real Colombians. Therefore, I decided to bring to this amazing city a vibrant, happy coffee shop with a twist of latin. The name 'Mi Tierra' in Spanish relates to having a connection with somewhere that holds a special place in your heart, and for me and any coffee farmer that's the best way to describe our love for coffee. Come and say hola at our shop, and experience a little slice of South America on the Goldy!

Meet Heidi – Founder of Zuperkit – Travel kits for kids
We are a typical family who loves to travel. As we all know travelling with young kids can be quite challenging so I always looked for fun activity books for our daughter (Zara) to do when we were travelling. I found it time consuming to go to so many different stores to buy quality activity books that would keep Zara entertained. Then I thought, wouldn’t it be great to have an online store where you could go and buy travel activity packs for kids. This is how ZuperKit was born.
ZuperKit is the ultimate travel buddy for kids. ZuperKit travel packs are filled with fun, interactive activities to engage and stimulate children on any journey. People can either buy a ready-made kit for different age groups or they can ‘build their own’. Travelling with kids soon? Head to www.zuperkit.com.au
