RITA JENKINS-WOLCOTT “The Barre Boss” – Rita has always been a mover. After earning her BFA in Dance, Performance and Choreography from The Ohio State University, she performed professionally in NYC. She had a long career as a Licensed Massage Therapist, before returning to the dance world – as a performer, teacher and choreographer. Rita’s passion for fitness, health and wellness was ignited when she discovered barre in 2009, receiving a national Barre certification in 2010. In January of 2012, she channeled her education, experience and passion into the creation of the BolderBARRE® method. She is a Certified Personal Trainer (NASM), and holds certifications in P90X (one of the first 50 in the world), PiYo LIVE, and Insanity fitness programs. Rita is grateful that her passion is her profession, and loves coaching women to challenge their comfort zones and grow stronger every day! She is the proud Mom of a successful, spirited entrepreneur and married to a very, very patient man.
