Elizabeth ganey, Instructor


Elizabeth is new to FOB but is ready to bring the energy.  She is up for anything but what she loves the most is supporting and loving on people.  Her booty rivals JLo and Kim K.


Brittany Ransom, lead instuctor

As a 72712 native, raising my 3 boys in Bentonville with my East Coast husband is

completely surreal.


I’ve always been an athlete, but after years of competitive running, reoccurring injuries, eating disorders and a really unhealthy view of my Body, I turned to yoga. Over time, yoga helped to heal my body physically, while changing the Stories in my head that told me I wasn’t skinny enough, fit enough, etc. 

Yoga was my first experience in moving my body in a way that made me feel joy over punishment. Movement became therapy.


In 2013 we moved to Dallas, I quit my job as a social worker and completed my 200hr RYT. I haven’t looked back since.

Nothing energizes me more than being in a room full of women who all want to feel good in their own skin.

I’ve been a yoga instructor, a barre instructor, a Boutique studio owner, and now I’m ready to do what I love— teach!

I attended my first FOB class in Little Rock and was immediately HOOKED. There is nothing like it. You won’t find a more accepting and encouraging studio anywhere In this country.


As an enneagram 7, I almost never say no to new adventure, and I can’t wait to go on this one with you!

I am SO excited to see FOB change the lives and hearts of Northwest Arkansas women, and cannot believe I get to be part of such an incredible team!

I invite you to “come as you are, and stay as long as you need.” *dm me for an iced coffee or wine date*


katherine thorpe, Instructor

Hi! I'm Katherine Thorpe, yes, there are two of us!  I was first introduced to Full Out Barre by, you guessed it, my sister-in-love, Catherine. I saw it come to fruition nearly first-hand and when it opened in NWA, I was more than elated to join as a founding member!  

I've always found a way to move my body whether it be swimming laps as a lifeguard during college, on the tennis courts as a newly wed, running in my neighborhood or through YouTube videos during Covid.  When I'm not Full Out Barre-ing you will find me spending time with my husband, taking care of my household and 4 busy kids in our Bentonville community! 

What I love about Full Out Barre is how fitness and fun truly come together as one.  You will not find a more inclusive, comprehensive, safe or enjoyable workout and community than Full Out Barre.  Live Full Out with us!

Originally from Virginia, I married my Coastie husband , we had twin baby girls in Virginia, moved to Alaska & had our baby boy, finished up our college degrees, left the Coast Guard life & moved to Arkansas for the Walmart life, had our final baby girl, & I’ve now been homeschooling for nearly a decade! Somehow we have (2) 14-year-old girls starting high school, an 11-year-old boy starting middle school, & a 7-year-old starting 2nd grade! Time really does fly when you’re having fun!! We absolutely love life here in NWA!

Unlike most other staff members here at FOB, I’ve never been a workout enthusiast. I didn’t understand how to approach working out in a positive way & how to honor my body right where I was at. Enter FOB. The mission is one I quickly fell in love with & was excited to get behind! So now, getting to be the studio manager at a place I genuinely adore getting to be a part of, well, it’s pretty special! The community is unmatched & I’m so excited to get to know each smiling face that comes through our door!


ellyn piatt, Instructor


I attended the University Of Central Arkansas studying Nutrition. With a background in competitive dance, Dietetics seemed to be the perfect fit for my active self. Post graduation, I honestly didn't love the hospital life. I wanted to help others prevent toxic lifestyles in a different environment. I had seen and struggled myself with Orthorexia throughout my early 20's and realized it's best to take on a health journey with a support family instead of alone. Finding the Full Of Barre community really changed the meaning of "being skinny" for me. Why be small, when you can be a bigger version of yourself? Being a FOB instructor gives me the opportunity to share my passion for wellness to those who are ready to show up for themselves.

I love experiencing new ways to move my body and expand my mind. Movie, trip guides, and book recommendations are always welcome! Since leaving the medical world, I have had many jobs/skills added to my resume. Each adding on like super powers. Now a full-time merchant, I spend all my free time jumping into travel, hobbies and new experiences. My volleyball loving boyfriend, Reid, and I now call home NWA. He's the head volleyball coach for Springdale High and travels as a beach volleyball player; which takes us all over the US. We live with our two dogs, Lincoln Ross and Michelle Monica, who are along for the ride. I look forward to being a cheerleader to the growing FOB crew and encouraging the dancer heart in everyone who walks through the studio doors.


christine munson, Instructor


I first became introduced to FOB in Little Rock and immediately fell in love with it. The workouts and great community both brought so much joy to my life! I’m new to NWA, and are excited to be a part of both the FOB community and NWA. I love helping others become the best versions of themselves and am thrilled to do that through being an instructor at FOB!


Crazy adventures and trying new things are my thing! I also love mountain biking and hiking, but paddle boarding and kayaking are my true passion. I can’t wait to explore NWA.


holly trumbo, instuctor

I’m Holly. I’m a wife to Cass, a mother to Jude (6), Milo (3), and Gus (baby). I LOVE being a mom to this crazy crew and my number one goal is to raise these boys to be good humans who have a love for being active.


I have a degree in Health and Human Performance with a focus on Health Enhancement. I’ve been able to use what I learned in a variety of ways. From being a middle school PE teacher, to coaching group fitness classes, to currently coaching endurance athletes to meet their goals (whether that be their first 5k or a full Ironman triathlon).


I’ve always had a passion for fitness and challenging myself in new ways: whether cheerleading in college, spending summers water skiing or winters snowboarding, I have always been pretty active. As an adult, I started doing triathlons and I’ve completed two full Ironman triathlons, as well as a handful of half Ironmans. After having my second son, I kept injuring myself in workouts, so I decided that I needed to focus on strengthening my core and all those little accessory muscles that help protect from injury – and that’s when I started doing barre. What started out as a “bridge” to get back to my other workouts ended up becoming a permanent part of my training schedule.


I am so excited to be a part of the FOB family!


Hey!  I’m Kristen, wife to Barry and mama to 2 grown kids, Emily and Jake. 
Fitness has always been an important part of my life,from playing football with my brothers in the backyard to competitive swimming. And pretty much everything in between!
I graduated from the U of A with a B.S. in Early Childhood Education. Maybe someday I will combine my love of kiddos with my love of fitness!
Full Out Barre is so much more than just a “workout”.  It is energetic, challenging, uplifting, and most importantly, FUN!!  The community, the camaraderie, and the encouragement that comes with it is the icing on the cake!
I’m beyond thrilled that I get to fuse my love of music, movement, and encouraging others in such a safe and positive environment!
I feel honored to be a part of this amazing tribe!!



Hi, I’m Blakelea! I’m a Central Arkansas native but have called home to NWA since 2013. I’ve been married to my husband, Stephen, since 2014. Mom to two very energetic kids, Ellery (6) & Adler (4).
I quit my day job as a Respiratory Therapist in 2017 to become a stay at home mom. Having two young kids I found I needed an outlet, so turned to fitness. It was “me time”. As an active person before kids, I found it more difficult to bounce back..As most mom’s can agree. Most of my workout were done at home but I bounced around to a few places but never felt at home until Full Out Barre. From the first class I was hooked.

As an instructor, I want other women to feel the same welcoming atmosphere I did. Empowering women to feel confident in themselves and their bodies at every stage we go through!


lindsey fraser, INSTRUCTOR
Hi all! I’m Lindsey, wife to Sean and momma to my two beautiful girls, Harper and Hadley. Being just 14 months apart, they keep me on my toes. I jumped into fitness for the first time regularly when I became pregnant with my first in 2018. It became my outlet as a stay-at-home-mom.
Fast forward to 2020 when the Pandemic hit, and my world turned upside down. Having just been relocated to New Jersey for my husband’s job 3 weeks before the Pandemic hit, 2020 became the longest and loneliest year of my life. Fitness went out the window and my mental health took a hit. So, after a quick 14-month stent, we moved back home to NWA.
I jumped back into fitness and started my own Health and Wellness business. I’m now on a healthy living journey that has put me in the best shape of my life both mentally and physically.
My goal is to walk alongside you to help you find that for yourself. The incredible workouts and uplifting environment are what brought me to FOB, but it’s the community of women and endless support that make me proud to become an instructor and be a part of this one-of-a-kind tribe.
