Fireside Chat with Sadie Lincoln, Owner of barre3


Part of CREW Portland's mission is to help advance the careers of women through education and leadership training. Please join us December 14, as we hear from two successful female leaders in the Portland Community, Sadie Lincoln, founder of barre3 as she's interviewed by our Chapter President, Trish Nixon, managing principal, LRS Architects.


After 20+ years in the corporate fitness industry, Sadie and Chris Lincoln broke out on their own to create barre3 - a unique fitness experience that balances exercise, nutrition, and community. In 2008, they opened their flagship barre3 studio in beautiful Portland, OR. Today, barre3 has grown to 130 studios around the country, and an online community of thousands with workouts viewed in 98 countries; and a thriving digital magazine. The barre3 mission has always remained the same: to make the world a happier, healthier place. Come join us for a fireside chat with CREW Portland's President, Trish Nixon, while she talks with Sadie about the journey of growing a worldwide company and fitness phenomenon.
