Tara is a teacher at Pure Barre Greensboro and a First Lieutenant in the National Guard. Read her inspirational story below.
“I wear combat boots and Pure Barre socks!
I began my service in the National Guard to allow myself the opportunity to serve my country while attending law school. I currently attend Elon University School of Law, and it has been during my law school education that I found Pure Barre Greensboro. My love for Pure Barre grew quickly, and before I knew it, I was heading to Spartanburg, SC to train to become a teacher. I have been teaching at Pure Barre Greensboro since the spring of 2015.
While balancing my school schedule and Pure Barre schedule, once a month I have to trade in my Pure Barre socks for my combat boots. Many clients are not aware that I am currently serving in the Army, but those that do express overwhelming support! I shyly admit whenever I am at drill or in the field for training that I miss LTBing and wish that I could slip on a pair of barre socks and teach a pop-up class to my soldiers.
Pure Barre has made me a well-rounded athlete. I have always been an active individual but it can be difficult to motivate yourself to head to the gym and change up your workout when you are working out by yourself. Pure Barre is always a challenging workout that allows me to push myself in a different way each class. I have seen improvements in my strength and I believe Pure Barre is the reason I am a strong person physically and emotionally.
I continue to serve in the Pennsylvania National Guard and have an expected graduation date from law school in May of 2017. Upon graduation, I hope to continue my service to the U.S. Army as a Captain in the Army JAG Corps.”
