Movement is the beauty of the human body and exercising is the by product of that movement. The result is a body that is stable, strong and able to sustain the everyday functionality to perform activities of daily living and look amazing at the same time. My goal as personal trainer is to help my clients achieve all of these components and obtain a body that showcases the fruit of their efforts.
I know all too well how challenging it can be to lose weight and keep it off. I was a classic yo-yo dieter and a former potato chip addict and I only exercised when my pants were getting too tight and there was no room in the budget to go shopping for more clothes. I got tired of that madness. Plus, I needed to lower my cholesterol and just have more energy overall. So, I determined enough was enough and I came from behind the potato bag, addressed my emotional eating addiction and began to find exercises that I loved. The results were amazing and I never went back.
Since then, I have a earned several certifications so I can help my clients experience life free of unwanted weight while being aware of what they are eating. I am a Certified Personal Trainer, a Certified Nutrition Coach and a Certified Group Fitness Instructor.
With a full-scale gym approach, my fitness studio welcomes clients into an engaging and motivational environment encouraging them to work towards their fitness goals. Also, to complete the clients journey to living a balanced lifestyle, I provide nutritional coaching coupled with an exclusive online meal plan program that has proven results of success.

What I like most about working with Coach Shalynne, is the deeply rooted passion she has for seeing others become healthy & healed, not only did she fight that battle herself, but she’s reached out her hand to help others out of these struggles, I can think of no better soul to have the title ”Coach” (One who teaches and inspires) than Shalynne Barr !
I believe in communication. Without it we are lost in this life. There is no difference in the client-coach approach either. The first step to success with me is to have a conversation to get a better understanding of the clients past journey, what has worked, what hasn’t worked and what the goals are that they are going to be working towards. I would prefer for this conversation to not be done through texting. This conversation also gives the client a chance to ask questions about me and get to know me a little better.
Over 6 years in the fitness industry. As well as running my business I also teach out of a reputable gym.
As mentioned, I am a certified personal trainer, certified nutrition coach and certified group fitness instructor.
I do offer a new client package to begin that includes a combination of meal planning, personal training and nutrition coaching. Beyond that there is a pricing structure for a package of personal training hours as well as a subscription to the meal plan program
I began started to teach after I was given such a poor report from my doctor in regards to the snapshot of my health. I had high cholesterol. I was anemic. My white blood cell count was out of whack. There needed to be some changes. And fast! So I begin coaching myself and through that coaching I started to coach my friends and the love of that grew immensely. I started the educational process to seal the deal.
I have worked with clients from the ages of 23 to 72.
I am very active in the community and volunteer through my local Chamber. Recently, I named Ambassador of the Month. I was so proud of myself. And with that came greater exposure to the benefits of exercising.
My biggest piece of advice when looking for a coach to hire, is to make sure that the coach is truly interested in your best interest. Be sure also that the coach is able to relate to you on all levels of your journey.
1. Am I 100% ready to work hard and commit to my lifestyle change?
2. Am I willing to not be chained to my scale purely chasing numbers?
3. Will I trust my coach and the process that they will lead me through so I can see the results that I am looking for?
4. Do I love and value myself to give myself the very best?
