2018 Small Business of the Year: LaBarre Studios

LaBarre Studios The Silicon Valley Organization

Lisa Alberino opened labarre studios in December of 2016 in the historic Bank of Italy building on the Alameda.

Opening a fitness boutique in a 92 year old building was no small feat but Lisa and her team took on these challenges with determination and positivity.

Their mission was always to bring a professional and affordable barre studio to San Jose, but also to find a way to positively impact the area and its residents.

Lisa and her team have provided free clothing in the winter months for the community, raised money for schools and medical research and even caroled for those who needed a smile during the holidays.

From a business perspective, Lisa shared that they are almost at a breakeven point after being open for just 8 months!
