Deanna has called Birmingham home for the majority of her life. She is a motivated mother of three boys (23, 21, 18) and exudes a passion for life that has driven her to great success in a variety of personal and professional endeavors. Deanna now strives to apply that energetic focus toward creating a studio environment that empowers women to reach their fullest potential. Once she stepped into her first Pure Barre class and experienced the intense burn and shaky sensation that inevitably follows the 55-minute series, she realized her concept of exercise transformed. She has always been very active in the athletic community as an avid tennis competitor on a local and state level. She has also participated in running groups and various exercise classes, but her first Pure Barre encounter captivated her attention in a whole new way. Deanna not only saw almost instant results in her body, she was drawn to the energy and camaraderie that the studio atmosphere provides. Her enthusiasm for the exercise inspired her to become a Pure Barre instructor. She has been teaching in the Birmingham studio since March 2010 and has seen incredible changes in women’s lives including her own because of the Technique.
Deanna desires to help others reach their lifestyle goals through physical activity and believes that Pure Barre offers one of the best programs for achieving optimal results both physically and mentally. She is excited about sharing the Technique with other women and believes owning and operating a Pure Barre studio helps to merge her love for fitness and encouraging others into a fulfilling career.
