New barre fitness studio opens this spring on Stittsville Main

Barre Fitness - Inside Out Studio

Ottawa’s iNSiDE Out STUDiO barre plans to open their second location on Stittsville Main Street in mid-April.

The studio will be located at 1261 Stittsville Main in the same plaza as Villanova Dental and 4 Season Pool & Spa, located in a space formerly home to Hallmark.

Owners Janine & Greg Charron have been on Wellington West near Island Park Drive for the past three years.  Janine says they’ve been looking at expansion into Kanata/Stittsville for a while.

“We knew for sure that’s where our second location would be: – Kanata or Stittsville area,” she says. “Stittsville just has such a cute feel.  It’s a beautiful little community. Orleans is the next place we want to go.”

“The goal is mid-April, barring any construction delays,” she says. “We’re getting skylights put in so the guys haven’t been able to get on the roof because of the snow.”

Charron says that Barre-based fitness is common the U.S. but has been slow to expand into Canada. She says her facility was the first in Ottawa to offer the program, described on their web site as “a unique, intelligent fitness that creates a long, lean, toned physique with the use of targeted body-sculpting movements”, promoting good alignment and posture and building core strength.
