Meeting Friends at the Barre

This past weekend, I joined a few of my Days of Our Lives co-stars as we celebrated the grand opening of Cardio Barre Las Vegas, which was recently opened by Eric Martsolf and his wife, Lisa (you may recall a previous blog about their business). In addition to getting our butts kicked by Lisa in the workout, we also had a great time supporting our friends in their business venture and meeting some fabulous fans who came out to join in on the fun. And all of it helped raise funds for a great cause – Arrow Heart Adventure Camps

Started by my Days friends Arianne Zucker and Shawn Christian, Arrow Heart Adventure Camps is committed to enriching the lives of young teens through a challenging outdoor adventure. Through these camps, they inspire kids to want to make better choices, build character, confidence, credibility and critical thinking skills.

Friends pursuing dreams, people giving back and all of us exercising together … such a fun time!! For those who weren’t able to join us, I captured some of the event, including Shawn describing Arrow Heart, and I thought I’d share with you!

If you’re in Las Vegas, stop by and try a class at Cardio Barre, and in the meantime, check out the amazing work Shawn and Ari are doing with Arrow Heart!


  1. Thanks for being part of this Great Event. Enjoyed the most amazing road trip with friends, getting to see all of you, meeting new fans, sweating, learning about Shawn’s new charity and celebrating Lisa’s exciting new adventure and did I mention sweating?LOL
