About Us: Your Markham Groove Barre Fitness Trainers

Dayna Callaway – Director of Awesomeness 

I’ve been teaching group fitness since I left my full time marketing job in 2013.  In theory, I was supposed to be staying home with the 6 kids in my very Brady-bunch like family (yes, there are 6 kids!), but fitness became my escape.

I started at the YMCA in Markham with a “learn to teach group fitness course.” The first class I fell in love with was very old school step aerobics.  I quickly became a certification junkie, and started teaching hi-lo aerobics, bootcamps, muscle conditioning classes, yoga, and of course barre.

For me, barre has it all.  A workout that won’t kill the body, lots a room for creativity, and a beautiful blend of ballet and the best of yoga and Pilates.
