Katie Houlahan, Xtend Barre Floreats’ co-owner and Instructor. Katie has always had a passion for health, fitness and nutrition – from a young age she has always made sure she regularly exercises and eats well. She grew up practicing many types of dance including ballet, tap, contemporary, jazz, Spanish, hip hop and cheerleading. After high school Katie stopped dancing to concentrate on her University degree and after graduating with a Bachelor of Commerce entered the workforce pursing a career in corporate recruitment – which is where she met her co-owner and best friend Kristel Maltese. Katie needed a change from the corporate world so decided to open her own professional Spray Tanning business, which she has been running for the past 3 years.
Katie discovered Xtend Barre in 2012 and she immediately became addicted. Since her first class she hasn’t gone more than a week without attending an Xtend Barre class. Katie loves the way Xtend has sculpted her muscles and the strength and flexibility it has given her. Her love for the Xtend Barre workout made her decision to open a new studio easy.
