Brandis grew up dabbling in dance but fell in love with gymnastics at a young age. She competed for a few years competitively and coached a little after high school but quickly got caught up in the business of a full time job. When Brandis met her husband in 2010, they started traveling, going to concerts and festivals. It was then she realized she was out of shape and wanted to get back into a regular workout routine. After trying box gyms and at home workouts, she was struggling to stay committed. A friend had told her about Pure Barre and while driving home from breakfast one day, she saw Lawrence finally had a studio! A bit shy and nervous to try a group fitness class, she decided to jump in head first. It was love at first tuck! When the opportunity came to audition for an instructor role a few months later, she couldn't pass up the chance to share the workout that changed her life and her health. Brandis loves the challenge and discipline she gets from Pure Barre. Pure Barre not only pulled her out of her shell but gave her a new confidence and strength. She loves to get to know the PBL community and continue to expand her knowledge on the technique. Brandis loves music and will always turn the volume up to 11, especially in Empower!
