BENTONVILLE STAFF

SHANNON MCMASTERS, STUDIO MANAGER

 

Fitness has always been a part of my life in some way since I was very young. I started in gymnastics when I was 6 and competed until I was a sophomore in high school. During that time, I played softball, volleyball, ran in track and was a cheerleader. Then once in high school I moved over to the dance team for the remaining of high school. I was a gymnastics instructor for 3 years, and in medical sales until I decided to get back into the fitness industry full time in 2018. I started as a Studio Manager at OrangeTheory Fitness in Fayetteville and moved on to Regional position for NWA until Covid changed my career path.
I am a dog momma to a rescue boy named Willie who will melt your heart!
I became a house mom for Kappa Sigma Fraternity at the U of A in August of 2018 and I live with about 100 boys and yes- I live in the house with them full time!

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*

Hi yall! I am SO excited and honored to get to be a part of the NWA FOB Tribe! From the moment I took my Full Out Barre class, I have been hooked! I craved the community of the studio while away at college and getting to the studio was a top priority for me when I came home for breaks. 

I grew up in Little Rock, moved to Fayetteville for college, and decided to call NWA home for good. I attended the University of Arkansas and graduated in 2018 with my Bachelors of Science in Childhood Education and in 2019 with my Master of Arts in Teaching. Now, I'm living my dream: hanging out with and teaching math to middle schoolers at Thaden School in Bentonville. I have a passion for helping and encouraging others. 

I'm excited for NWA to experience the magic of Full Out Barre. The self-love, positive energy, authenticity, and dancing to loud music is contagious. I can't wait to get to know you!

Hi! I grew up in a small town in Mid-Missouri and went to St. Louis to get my bachelors in Social Work. This is where I fell in love with barre workouts — and met my husband, Tom, who was attending Chiropractic school. In 2016, we moved to Bentonville to open our chiropractic office with a mission to make NWA one of the healthiest places to be! Since then I’ve taken on many hats — business owner, homemaker, volunteer, etc. but being a barre instructor has been a dream of mince since I took my first class circa 2012 and I can’t wait to encourage the Bentonville community inside the studio! Other than what lead me here, you should also know I love the Lord, whipping up a healthy meal in the kitchen, and if you want to be friends I’m always down for a hot latte and a long walk.

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.

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.

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!
