Nicole Strong, Studio Owner
Nicole is a Southern California native and active mother of 3. Sports and exercise have always been an important part of her life. She grew up playing water polo and doing competitive swimming from a young age. She graduated from BYU-Idaho in health sciences and later earned her ultrasound certificate. Being a mother and ultrasonographer she didn't have a lot of time for fitness and wanted to find something in under an hour that left her sore and feeling accomplished after every work out. When she found Xtend Barre she fell in love immediately. She was hooked on how it made her feel and how it changed her body. She is thrilled to introduce the first Xtend Barre to Utah Valley.

ROBYN LENKER - Instructor
Robyn grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada where she took ballet jazz nearly every day as well as cheerleading for her High School. Her professional career culminated when she danced and choreographed professionally as a member of the Utah Jazz Dance team. She taught ballet and jazz for five years until her first child was born. Robyn has always put a large emphasis on staying fit and active. As the mother of five busy children it has become more difficult to find a workout that would not only give desired results, but could also be done in a short period of time. After being introduced to Xtend Barre she knew after her first workout that she had discovered something special. "I love Xtend Barre because it has many of the aspects of ballet that I love but it can accommodate to any fitness level. I feel like it was designed specifically for me and I am so excited to share this amazing workout with others here in Utah."
