Ali on the Run Show Episode 130: Sadie Lincoln, Founder of Barre3

Date: March 27, 2019 at 7:41 pm- by Ali- Comment(s): 0

Numbers don’t mean anything when it comes to success.” —Sadie Lincoln

Sadie Lincoln is the co-founder and CEO of Barre3, the mega-popular boutique fitness brand that has more than 130 studios in the United States. On this episode, Sadie talks about being a “former hippie kid,” the unconventional way she was raised, and how that shaped her as a student and, eventually, an entrepreneur. She shares the story of how she discovered fitness in college, and how she went on to realize she was working out for all the wrong reasons, leading to burnout and a much-needed change of scenery. She shares her stories of resilience and grit, confidence and failure, and loneliness, connection, and community. She talks about what stresses her out, about why, despite having trained Madonna, she’s “not a celebrity trainer,” and her husband’s grand plan to sell everything they own and move to Portland, OR, with their two toddlers to “start fresh.”
