Rachel became a certified Barre-Om instructor in the winter of 2016. Moving back to central Ohio 2014, she had tried many different ways to try to stay in shape, and eventually found Pai. She loved Pai from her first visit for the feeling of community and the variety of classes offered. She decided to try barre, and, by her first class, she was hooked. As an athlete for most of her life, including cheering at the University of Dayton, she loved the challenge that the barre-Om method presented, as well as the focus on rhythm and music.
Rachel attended the University of Dayton for undergrad and went to the University of Findlay to obtain her Master’s in Physician Assistant Studies. As a PA, she sees the impact that exercise and fitness have on all aspects of health and wellness.
In her spare time, she enjoys traveling, attending sporting events, and spending time with her family.

PAI Barre offers Barre-OM(™) classes for its PAI Barre program. Barre-OM™ is a method that was developed by barre instructor/trainer Rachel Wilson. The method uses small isometric movements to work muscles until complete exhaustion and also incorporates orthopedic stretching to lengthen muscles. Barre-OM™ incorporates aspects of pilates, ballet, and yoga to help students achieve a dancer’s physique. Barre-OM™ creates long and lean muscles, whittles away the waistline, and tones arms, abdominals, thighs, and glutes.
This sixty-minute class is a low-impact high-intensity class that includes a combination of ballet, pilates, and yoga. These classes are designed to target different muscle groups including arms, thighs, seat, and abdominals through small, controlled, isometric movements. Clients will work their muscles until fatigue and then stretch and lengthen the muscles. Classes will incorporate strengthening and lengthening exercises and will incorporate breathing techniques in an effort to improve core strength and endurance.
The ballet barre is used for support and light weights, resistance bands, and fitness balls are incorporated into the workout to strengthen and sculpt the muscles. Students will overload their muscles until the point of fatigue, and then stretch and lengthen muscles in order to create a long and lean physique.
