Brittany Ransom, lead instuctor
As a 72712 native, raising my 3 boys in Bentonville with my East Coast husband is
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!
KARI LEWIS, STUDIO MANAGER
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!
