Angela grew up south of Boston and was very active participating in sports before heading down to Clemson for college. Looking for a new way to stay active this is where her love for group fitness classes began. She was a regular in Clemson’s cycle, barre and dance fitness
classes, loving the community that fitness brought to her. After four years at Clemson she moved back to Boston and was looking for that same community.


Angela obtained her certifications in Ignite Cycle and Empower Barre at the end of 2020. You can find her teaching both Ignite and Barre classes at the studio when she’s not working as a Civil Engineer in Downtown Boston. Angela is always on the hunt for a good remix track and you’ll be sure to hear that in her classes.

When she’s not in the office or the studio you can find Angela “getting her steps in” around the Savin Hill neighborhood, trying new restaurants, and over planning for any upcoming trips!

After being inspired by a phenomenal instructor there, Alaina began to think about becoming an instructor herself.
