Cool Change

When Sadie Lincoln and her husband, Chris, decided to start fitness company barre3, it was borne from a sense in which popular fitness models weren’t working for her, despite doing all the things and having all the stuff. Now with more than 175 locations in three countries, she is seeking to redefine fitness by helping people be “balanced in their body” and “empowered from within.”This is a podcast about change, so I sat down with Sadie to learn about how she thinks about it… it’s one of the core ideas she’s espoused in her business from Day 1.You can hear more about Sadie’s very unconventional early life and upbringing in podcasts like How I Built This and The Rich Roll Podcast, and I encourage you to do that. In our conversation, we park on a few key themes and insights to see what makes her such an inspirational leader to thousands of people.

The PurposeGirl Podcast Episode 106: Balanced in Body and Empowered from Within with Sadie Lincoln

The PurposeGirl Podcast: Empowering women to live their purpose with courage, joy, and fierce self-love.

When I first started PurposeGirl I started with the dream of creating a movement of women coming together in their power and shifting the world for the better. I’ve always been fascinated by movements of women that start organically, where women gather and take a stand for something together. My guest today has created such a movement, a movement that has been leading people to feel empowered in their minds and bodies. My guest today is Sadie Lincoln, the co-founder and CEO of barre3. In today’s episode of The PurposeGirl Podcast, Sadie talks about: Working out at home shortly after the birth of her first child and what she learned about listening to her own inner voice. The importance of paying attention to what she really needs, and the importance of building a company by paying attention to what people really need. The need to be intentional in defying the countless messages coming at us that attempt to disempower us around our bodies. How some member of the fitness community send exactly the wrong kinds of messages, and how barre3 is different. The emphasis on encouraging modifications at barre3, where members are taught many variations on poses and exercises so they can choose what to do based on what their bodies really need, thereby empowering them to choose for themselves. A new way of thinking about what it means to be a badass. What it means to be empowered from within. The impact of having been raised by a sisterhood of women. How the idea of belonging and community is core to barre3. The importance of having one’s business be driven by purpose. Getting clear on your distilled essence is the hardest thing you’ll do. The importance of self-awareness practices. Barre3 retreats You can learn more about and follow barre3 on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/barre3company), Twitter (https://twitter.com/barre3), and Instagram (https://www.instagram.com/barre3 and https://www.instagram.com/sadielincoln/).
