It’s easy to fit exercise into your life when you can bring the kids. Minors under 18 years of age are welcome. If minors are on the premises while guardians are in class, you must purchase a play lounge package. Reservations are highly recommended. Please reserve under your name and not your child’s name.

Lauren Melillo
Studio Owner

Lauren Melillo has a deep love for fitness from being a competitive athlete throughout her youth and teaching in the fitness industry for over a decade. It has always been one of her biggest passions. When Lauren took her first barre3 class she knew she had truly found her home. Barre3 was not only the heart pumping, body sculpting workout she loved, but it gave her so much more. It was the way she felt mentally after every class - more grounded, centered, and the feeling of pure happiness that had her hooked. The barre3 lifestyle has changed her life in so many amazing ways. Lauren is thrilled to bring barre3 to her Charlotte community with the love and support from her husband, Kevin, and their 3 kids: Kingsley, Tatum, and John.
