Owner and teacher at BarreU in Coeur d’Alene’s midtown, Jenny Wiglesworth offers 19 years of experience and is thrilled to be a part of the Coeur d’Alene fitness community. Nationally and internationally trained, she offers the knowledge from 19 years of a variety of class formats to bring her clients the best total-body workout.
“BarreU is the exclusive, premier Barre studio in the Coeur d’Alene area,” says Jenny. “We not only pride ourselves in the strength and length that comes from our one-of-a-kind workouts, but we are also a community that encourages health and change. I am delighted to call Coeur d’Alene home and welcome you to meet me at BarreU.”
What is Barre? It is a length and strength workout incorporating dance exercise, yoga and Pilates. The high-intensity, calorie-burning yet low-impact 55-minute total-body workout works every muscle in your body. The workout focuses on lifting your “seat” (behind), lengthening your legs and toning the abdominals. In addition, Barre offers an encouraging and positive culture.
At BarreU, every workout is the perfect combination of mind-body intention and high-intensity strength. Designed for all ages and fitness levels, it is the workout you have been looking for. “Once you come to a BarreU Coeur d’Alene class, you will never go back,” states Jenny.
What differentiates BarreU from other businesses, she says, is their “3 Bs: the barre workout and the way we do it, helping women find their beauty from the inside out and bring it to the community.”
August marked BarreU’s third anniversary
“I couldn't have done this without my husband and my family. We moved from Portland and started this with the belief that something really great was going to happen within those walls,” states Jenny. “My husband is my rock. He supports me, thick and thin. He is not only there financially and emotionally, but he physically helped remodel the entire space. He also supports me by attending events, passing out flyers and being the stay-at-home-dad when I am teaching or hosting events.”
Her parents, sister, brother-in-law and in-laws have all been supportive of her vision and help in many ways, including watching Jenny’s two children.
Jenny also credits her incredible BarreU team for helping to create a successful business: Barre instructors Emily Plummer, Sarah Croy and Jessi Astlund; Hannah, Cortney and Ashley who oversee the facility’s childcare; and Jen Miller for her innovative ideas for BarreU’s social media. “They are my tribe, my support and the reason BarreU continues to grow,” Jenny says.
In addition, they hold a monthly pop-up, where BarreU partners with a local business, together raising money for the Union Gospel Mission. Past partners have been Slate Creek, Strada, Fine Brewed, The Wellness Bar, Rumour Boutique and Coeur d’Alene Marine Sports.
“We have now lived in the area for a little over three years and really have fallen in love with this amazing town—mostly because of the people within it,” Jenny says.
When it comes to what she finds most rewarding about her business and the work she does, Jenny says it’s the people who come into BarreU: “The women who come into my door looking for a fitness routine to get them into shape but gain friends and new respect for themselves.”
