Jen Leitch has lived in the Carolinas for most of her life and is thrilled to bring Pure Barre to the Lowcountry. She is a graduate of Clemson University in South Carolina, and spent several years as a successful Certified Public Accountant in Charlotte, NC before leaving the investment field to pursue her goal of making fitness her career. Fitness has always been a major part of her life, as she was trained in dancing and gymnastics from an early age and continued both throughout her college years. After leaving the business field, Jen became a Pilates instructor and taught Pilates and dance for several years in Charlotte. A busy and motivated mom of four, she began to seek out new and challenging forms of isometric exercise, discovered Pure Barre, and immediately became a devoted follower of The Technique. Once she took her first 55-minute class she discovered the most effective workout that she had ever experienced and was hooked. Shortly thereafter, she was asked to train as a Pure Barre teacher and began teaching at the Charlotte studio. She has been honored to be able to teach the Technique to others, and is excited to combine her love of dance, fitness and business experience. "Pure Barre has changed my body in ways that I didn't think possible, being a student and teacher of Pilates for so many years. The Technique has transformed my body and my life more than any other form of exercise has done and I am thrilled to bring Pure Barre to Charleston, SC."
