About Jenn Maturo of Barre by Jenn
Jenn fell in love with barre while living abroad in London. At first barre was simply the reminder of her adolescent love for ballet but it wasn’t long before she discovered how significantly barre changed her postpartum body in a way unlike any other exercise. After that, she found herself easily taking 6 classes a week and was presented with the opportunity to train as an instructor. Unfortunately, however, teaching was put on the back burner when Jenn’s third pregnancy brought with it some strict bedrest and her family moved back to the US. It wasn’t until she was faced with the opportunity to train with her #1 fitness role model that Jenn signed up for training and her journey as a teacher truly began. Although Jenn initially questioned her ability to become an instructor (and a decent one at that) as a full-time mother of three, she found support in the amazing Jenn Phelan and Meg Fitzgerald—both barre instructors and working mothers—and pursued her dream to teach. Jenn received her barre certification at North End Yoga in 2018. Jenn has been teaching ever since and you can now find her toning and sculpting booties all over the South Shore. Jenn is known for her tough but effective barre classes and sweat dripping cardio barre workouts.
