Grant grew up in the Pacific Northwest, where outdoor culture inspires active lifestyles. As a result, he began athletics at an early age. Through competitive figure skating, tennis and then dance, Grant quickly found a love for pursuing physical excellence and complex mental challenge to create the best in human form. After studying on scholarship at several of America’s prestigious dance training grounds, Grant went on to an 18 year career as a leading professional dancer. 

Grant was first introduced to the importance of cross training while at The School of American Ballet. Alongside his dance studies he participated in rigorous weight training programs, directed by former New York City Ballet Soloist Peter Frame. These programs instilled the value of enhancing performance and overall wellness through building a strong core and well balanced physique. Grant continued to supplement work in the dance studio, and as a dance teacher, with this type of training for many years. 

As Grant transitioned out of his performing career, he needed something intensely effective to fill the gap. Fortunately, he was introduced to Core Fusion Barre by Exhale co-founder Elisabeth Halfpapp. After just a few months of classes, Grant felt more in shape than he had while dancing. Realizing a new platform to share his passion for enhancing human form, Grant was inspired to pursue teacher training. After 200+ hours, Grant is both Barre Certified by Exhale and a Teacher for Exhale Spa.

Grant believes private or small group instruction can be an ideal way to explore new types of exercise and accomplish specific personal goals. He's passionate about exercise that fits into the demands of modern life while remaining aspirational and would love to help you reach your potential!
