Katie Conger has a passion for encouraging and motivating women through the pure barre technique. Born and raised in the Midwest, Katie grew up with a very diverse and active lifestyle. Dance was her love from an early age. Beginning at age four, Katie grew in her dancing ability and began performing group and solo competitions. Katie was a five-sport athlete in high school including; cross-country, basketball, track and field, softball and dance team. She excelled on the track, which helped land her a D1 scholarship at Samford University in Birmingham, AL.
Katie took her first pure barre class October 2008 in Lexington, KY. After that initial class, her approach to exercise forever changed. The technique, designed to safely and effectively change the body, was exactly what she had been looking for. A year later, she joined the Pure Barre Birmingham team as they launched a studio in January 2010. Becoming a teacher was a natural fit and drive for her. Being able to challenge and motivate women daily with the pure barre technique was not only challenging but also rewarding. It was here in Birmingham that she was able to be apart of a dynamic and inspiring group of instructors that set their goals high for positively impacting every client who walks through the door. In February 2011, she helped launch Pure Barre Huntsville. As the operations manager, she was able to lead the instructor team and market the business, while continuing to develop relationships with remarkable women in North Alabama. With an opportunity to return to her Midwest roots, Katie is excited and grateful to bring Pure Barre to the women of the Kansas City area.
