Chamber welcomes BarreX Fitness

SANDPOINT — The Greater Sandpoint Chamber of Commerce welcomed BarreX Fitness & Dance to the organization with a ribbon-cutting ceremony.

With over 30 years combined experience as a ballerina/dancer, performer, and elementary school teacher, Devyn Vaughan-Jolley decided to take these talents and open a barre studio in downtown Sandpoint.

As a loving wife, and mother of six, she was looking for a way to connect, help others, and stay healthy. She naturally turned back to her roots of dance and teaching. Taking her fitness to the next level, she became a certified group fitness instructor thru AFAA (Athletic & Fitness Association of America) and has been teaching barre for the last three years. She is trained and certified in 7-plus barre methods, four dance fitness formats, Tabata and more. Vaughan-Jolley continues her education regularly to stay current with the newest trends to be a well rounded fitness instructor.

Her passion of teaching over the years and witnessing participants achieve their health goals, as well as her own through Barre, led her to the decision to open BarreX Fitness & Dance.

“It has been a dream of mine to open my own studio, and it was my personal responsibility for the legacy I wanted to create,” Vaughan-Jolley said. “I envisioned BarreX to be a place to support, uplift and encourage others in their fitness journeys. I’m humbled and grateful for the opportunities I was given and this wouldn’t have been possible without my families support. I’m excited to share BarreX Fitness and Dance as the first Barre Studio in Sandpoint.”

The community is invited to join chamber officials in welcoming BarreX Fitness & Dance to the community. For more information on the services they offer visit them at 229 Pine Street or visit their website: www.barrexfitness.co
