What Does The Barre Code represent?
The Barre Code logo intentionally features varied widths representing the individuality of women (all shapes and sizes) showing up as they are, standing together in pursuit of their own journey and supporting others along the way.
Meet your local Barre Code studio Owner and Master Trainer
In 2018, Jaci Gonzalez finally decided she was ready to join a women’s group fitness class and community. At that time, Jaci’s husband had been working out of the country for a couple of months; with a busy career and two little girls at home, she knew she needed to prioritize taking care of her mind and body in order take better care of others. She knew a group fitness class was exactly what she needed. The catch? She was a working mom that needed to be able to take her kids with her to any workout class she chose. That narrowed her options down to one place.
Her search revealed The Barre Code offered women’s group fitness classes along with a kid’s class—double win! After her first Barre class, she was hooked. The Barre Code became her routine and happy place after work. The studio provided a women’s group fitness class that offered different formats, was ever-changing, challenging and set in a positive and encouraging atmosphere, no matter someone’s fitness background. The environment was unlike anything she had ever experienced; one focusing on personal growth, knowing and accepting our differences that make us uniquely beautiful, and loving and supporting each other every single day. For the next year and a half, she couldn’t get enough of class or The Barre Code.
Then, in 2019, Jaci had an opportunity to open the Capitol Park studio located in downtown Tuscaloosa, Alabama. She realized her personal and career growth was a direct result of her time spent at The Barre Code. She knew without a doubt that opening The Barre Code Capitol Park was natural progression towards making a difference and supporting women in her community. With her family’s support and love behind her, she opened the doors on September 8, 2020. She can’t wait to watch our community grow!

We teach badass classes. We go beyond the barre with our all-in-one program: Barre, Bootcamp, and Brawl. Sweat under neon lights to music that drives you, and be led by the most passionate instructors in the industry.
We preach “Nothing to lose. Everything to gain.” We will never idolize slimming shapes or shrinking sizes. We are a safe space for every BODY.
We practice radical self-love. We show ourselves love through movement. We celebrate our unique abilities and strengths.
We work to let go of standards that do not serve us. We build a stronger society. We are a collective of women who accept the differences that make us beautiful, and together, strive for beauty that makes a difference.
Creating A Movement of Empowerment
Women face many challenges, and it is our goal to use The Barre Code platform to raise awareness about challenges and successes centered around body image, mental health, women’s health and wellness topics. We share stories of struggle and triumph to help others know they are not alone and offer a community of support by bringing ‘normalcy’ to issues women historically have faced alone or with shame.
As The Barre Code continues to grow, our vision grows stronger to continue to use our brand as a vehicle to positively impact the lives of individuals worldwide.
