Francine grew up in Lakeland, FL and graduated from Florida State. Until last year she and her husband lived in Washington DC with their three boys, and they returned to Lakeland to be closer to family. A fitness fanatic and runner since college, Francine discovered Pure Barre after the birth of her third son as a way to recover her strength and gain flexibility. She loves the Pure Barre community, and that it's a comprehensive, full-body workout that encourages strength and health over size and external appearance. She's excited to help introduce Lakeland to Pure Barre and the mind-body healing it offers.
