Meet Meghann O’Leary of The PilatesBarre

Today we’d like to introduce you to Meghann O’Leary.

Meghann was born and raised in Ft. Lauderdale, FL and moved to Dallas, TX in pursuit of her business degree from Southern Methodist University (SMU).

Meghann’s true passion for fitness developed during her years at SMU, where she was exposed to numerous activities and exercises that would begin to transform her life.

Post-graduation, Meghann pursued a career in corporate marketing and recruiting, but after a couple of years, Meghann knew that the “spark” was missing and decided to follow her passion for fitness, specifically, Pilates.

Meghann completed the Stott Pilates training in Dallas, New York, and Miami.

Through her extensive, contemporary training, Meghann gained the critical knowledge to ensure proper form is achieved by all her clients. She has also learned how to create proper modifications to work around injuries and body constraints.

With her lifelong passion for Pilates, and after meeting Lauren, starting The PilatesBarre organically happened.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Growth! We are always looking at ways to expand within our daily class schedule and expanding our space in order to bring The PilatesBarre to new cities and clients.

The PilatesBarre – what should we know? What do you guys do best? What sets you apart from the competition?
At The PilatesBarre, you can expect 50-minutes of heart-pumping music, muscle-quivering, total body strengthening, lengthening and toning incorporating the new, exclusive BarreFormer. Our classes are largely based on the holistic principles of Pilates, but also emphasize the strength training and cardio elements found in other forms of exercise. Using The PilatesBarre method, The PilatesBarre in Dallas provides a unique exercise regimen.

The core of The PilatesBarre training method is the BarreFormer, which represents a significant evolution of the traditional Pilates Reformer.

The BarreFormer provides constant resistance and infinitely more exercise options than a traditional reformer; it allows the body to transition quickly and smoothly from one exercise to another to maintain an increased heart rate and keep the blood pumping.

All muscle groups, from large to small, are strengthened in a non-aggressive, low-impact manner making this workout as good for your muscles as it is for your joints. Your spine stays protected, your mind engaged, and your body pushed to its limits.

Under the guidance of your certified instructor, it is one of the safest ways to strengthen your muscles while reducing stress on the joints and connective tissues.

There’s nothing out there quite like it, and the incredible results prove it! The heart pumping, muscle-aching total body workout is tough, but fun and enjoyable!
