Menchu thrives on being a performer. There's nothing more gratifying for her than to see people with a smile on their faces after her performance. Since she was a child, Menchu loved participating in different activities such as dancing, singing, and anything that involved performing. She has even been in TV commercials! Her active lifestyle continued through to high school, but this time Menchu wanted a challenge of a different kind which led to her joining the Taekwondo Varsity Team. With rigid training and willingness, she proved to herself that nothing beats dedication. And her quest for new challenges hasn't stopped since. In college, she was on the cheerleading team for 6 years of tossing, breaking and turning - a wonderful experience for her to satisfy her thirst for performing. It was also around that time when she started training in Group Execrise classes, prompting another realisation that one should love what they do in order to achieve what they want. Menchu hasn't stopped feeling good about inspiring people that way and helping them understand how amazing hard work can make them feel. With three children, Menchu is even more adamant about maintaining her physical fitness - "I have to be a role model for the people who look up to me and to be an inspiration to everyone. I'm not only doing this for myself, but also for my family and especially my participants. This is my passion and I just love what I do."

Get the best of both worlds by doing the Pilates Barre class. This class is a fusion of the Barre technique and traditional Pilates strength and cardio exercises. Set to upbeat music, this class will provide high energy interval peaks to drive a sweat-induced, continual fat burning class. Central to the workout are resistance exercises on and off the bar which are athletically based to shape and tone the body. Pilates props are also incorporated to provide a comprehensive total body workout that results in muscles being worked to the point of fatigue for that all-important caloric burn. You will leave feeling re-energized, knowing how to safely regress and progress exercises. Come and join in the fun and experience a full body BARRE workout.
