Toast of the Town | Sadie Lincoln

An interview with Sadie Lincoln | Founder of barre3

Why She's the Toast of the Town

Sadie Lincoln is an inspiration. I first met the founder of fitness franchise barre3 at the Create and Cultivate conference in LA. Her story was so powerful I had wished we’d had more time to spend together. Fortunately, this summer I had that chance when a weekend getaway brought me to Portland.

I met Sadie and her team at their community studio. There she shared more about the founding story of barre3, her aspirations as an entrepreneur, and her dreams for the future.

Sadie Lincoln is a renowned wellness expert, media personality, and founder of barre3. From her flagship studio in Portland, Oregon, Sadie has created a unique style of whole-health fitness classes combining the disciplines of ballet barre work, Pilates and yoga. Her modern approach offers serious results, accessible programs and inspiration for balanced living. Barre3’s worldwide franchise locations and Online Workouts have attracted A-list celebrities, major publications such as Self, Fitness and In Style and everyday moms – just like Sadie.

Sadie began teaching group exercise 20 years ago while attending UCLA. She was awarded a Graduate Assistantship from the College of William & Mary, where she developed and ran the group fitness program while earning her master’s degree in higher education administration.

Prior to branching out on her own, Sadie spent 10 years at 24 Hour Fitness serving in a variety of roles, including running the group exercise program and developing global sales, marketing and brand communications strategy. Working directly with the founder and CEO, she helped grow the company into the largest chain of health clubs worldwide.

Today, Sadie is thrilled to own her company while raising her two kids alongside her husband and business partner Chris. –
