Cheryl West-Hicks

Movement became a big part of Cheryl’s life in her teens when she discovered ColorGuard (YouTube it!).  Dance warm ups quickly became a favorite part of rehearsal so much that she would spend hours choreographing her own for fun.  In her early 20s after spending some time performing with the Blue Knights in Denver, CO she came back to teach colorguard to various local groups and put those routines to good use.  She is still involved with the local WinterGuards and leading dance warmup is still one of her favorite parts of rehearsal.

As a pharmacist Cheryl sees first hand how physical activity can reduce the need for drug therapy and improve medical outcomes.

Finding Barre brought her love of moment and dedication to fitness together and quickly became her favorite workout.  She can’t wait to see others fall in love with the Xtend Barre workout and help them meet their fitness goals.

Hilary is excited to combine her love for dance and fitness with the Xtend Barre method. She will motivate and inspire you to keep reaching your goals, in her upbeat and enthusiastic classes.
