Bx Studio was born through years of self-discovery, exploring and countless hours of physical training.
Gasia’s journey through physical activity started young. With a strong focus on her health and staying in shape, she was part of the community track and field team until the age of 17. Shortly after, she discovered boxing, the ultimate cardio workout that engages the entire body, burns fat, all while having a fun and effective workout.

Eight years later, having moved to a new neighborhood in Montreal and still in search of new and different ways of physically challenging herself, she tried her first barre class, and instantly fell in love. Barre consists of muscle sculpting, core conditioning, and deep stretching, all while improving your mind-body connection. Unquestionably, boxing and barre became part of her fitness routine. After becoming a mother, and learning new ways to move her postpartum body, she discovered pilates.
“I couldn’t find what I was looking for, all under one roof, so I created it. Bx Studio is a place that is designed to empower its members and give them the results that they desire.
From the high-intensity aspect of boxing to low-impact toning of barre and pilates, we have created an ideal workout routine combining the best of both worlds.”

Challenge yourself, and come “Raise the Barre” on your physical health.
