For over the past 20 years, we’ve celebrated the Valley’s best. From the top businesses and professionals to the people who make it all happen, Arizona Foothills Magazine’s annual Best of Our Valley contest recognizes Arizona’s crème de la crème across more than 400 categories. From the best doctors and best resort down to the best cup of coffee you can find around town, each Best of titleholder is chosen by those who know the city best – our readers.
Each week, we’ll be highlighting individual winners from Best of Our Valley 2018, who share their advice, insights and thoughts on what it means to be a part of this exclusive list.
The Best of spotlight is on Re-barre Studio, who claimed the Valley’s Best Barre Studio. Congrats, Re-barre Studio!
AFM: In a brief 2-3 sentences, please tell us a little bit about you!
Re-Barre Studio: One for all & all for Re-Barre! Re-Barre is ANYTHING but a one size and style fits all barre class. You won’t find choreographed routines here but rather a customized barre experience designed to accommodate your unique needs. You might just think of us as your local Barre-trend-ers! We aim to set the barre higher on what studio fitness classes should deliver. Our re-tooled, re-built and re-invented unique Barre style has earned rave reviews. We fuse interval training with weighted balls, 6 styles of resistance bands, gliders, mini-mats and more to create a barre experience unlike any other. We offer our signature Re-Barre classes, BUTI yoga, zumba and unparalleled customer service in a welcoming, personalized and fun environment.
AFM: What does it mean to you to be a Best of Our Valley winner?
Re-Barre Studio: We take great pride in delivering not only great fun classes but a great customer experience from the moment you walk in our doors. As a small locally owned business to achieve recognition for what we do from our clients & peers truly means the world to us!
AFM: What’s your favorite part about being the Best of Our Valley’s Best Barre Studio?
Re-Barre Studio: Our team getting recognized for their hard work & dedication means everything to us!
AFM: What advice would you give to others to be the “best” in your field?
Re-Barre Studio: Overdeliver on customer service. Fall in love with your customer more than your product. Provide solutions & a unique experience for them that they can’t find anywhere else. Be agile enough to adapt to change!
AFM: Have you seen any benefits as a result of being a BOOV winner?
Re-Barre Studio: Yes! First-timers mention the award frequently & say our reputation along with rave reviews helped them find us.
AFM: How do you put your “best” foot forward every day?
Re-Barre Studio: Setting an intention to serve others. First thing in the morning listen to a motivating speaker. Getting your mind in the right place is the most important thing you can do to start your day. Love Tony Robbins, Wayne Dwyer to name a few. No phones nor news for at least 30 minutes upon rising.
