Cassie is a long distance runner since high school, and while she loved running, the high-impact nature of running had begun to take its toll on her. When she found barre, she fell in love with the challenge, but it also left her feeling like she wasn’t hurting her body. After two years of being a barre student, she trained with at tuck to become an instructor and join their team. She loves the community feel of the studio and the classes and likes that barre can be modified to each student’s level. During the day she works in marketing for a Philadelphia radio group and loves her dog Poppy every minute she gets. Follow her at @_basic_poppy.
