About Us

About Body of Bloomington:

Welcome to Body of Bloomington, affectionately known to us as “Body”. Body opened in 2013 when its founder, Tara Braucht, noticed a need for change in our community’s fitness offerings. She wanted workouts based on correct form, alignment and core engagement, and to provide fun new formats such as Pole Dance, Barre, and PiYo. In 2020, she sold the studio to longtime employee, Ky Overfelt, who is excited to uphold the reputation and family-feel of this wonderful studio.

Body of Bloomington specializes in making fitness fun, personal, and something you look forward to everyday. We offer a variety of different classes including Pole Dance and Fitness, Barre, Pilates, Yoga, Suspension, HIIT, Body Sculpt, PiYo, and more to keep you motivated to keep coming back to class! We are a community where our staff- and even other clients- get to know you and help you motivated to meet your fitness goals. We are not a gym or a cookie cutter workout place- we are a welcoming, personal atmosphere where make each visit to us enjoyable and fun, but most importantly, making sure YOU are getting the best workout YOU can. Our classes are smaller with only 7-15 people and our talented instructors modify moves so each guest gets the best workout for them. Each instructor has their own style and structure they bring to their class and no two teacher’s workouts are the same to consistently change up your workout routine, challenge different muscles groups and keep it fun and effective. We offer annual memberships with unlimited classes of all class types for $135 a month, which most clients get the best results and a much lower rate per class with this option, or you can always buy a punch card for several classes or drop in for one class.

We also offer classes for kids, including our popular CircusKids class.

Our classes:

All classes  can be modified to meet the most challenging fitness needs to the most beginner. Moves are shown with several modifications to increase or decrease your workout. We also have smaller classes to ensure our hands on approach to individually challenging and modified personal instruction.

If you’re looking for more specific information regarding our classes, please visit the class descriptions link on our website.


Before Class:

One of the things we hear most is “I am nervous” or “I haven’t worked out in awhile”. Don’t be nervous- and we are glad to have you! We are here for you and to make your experience as comfortable as possible whether it is your first time to Body or your 100th. You will be greeted by a staff member or me, the owner, at the front desk to check you in before class and your workout area will be preset with whatever you need for that particular class. You can leave your belongings in the cubbies at the front of the studio. There are two bathrooms to change in and if you are coming over your lunch break, etc, you are more than welcome to hang your clothes in the bathroom during class. Please always remove your shoes before changing.


What to bring:

We provide mats, blocks, weights, or whatever you will need for your workout. We also have a water station to re-fill your bottle at any time.


What our client’s say about Body:

I am so happy to be a member of such an amazing place. Tara and her staff make everybody feel so welcome, they provide workouts for all fitness levels and make working out fun. I look forward to attending all of my classes rather than dreading them. Bloomington is lucky to have a place like this. 

-Maureen Hassleman (client since March 2014)

If it wasn’t for Body of Bloomington opening last year I have no idea where I would be with my fitness. I absolutely love the uniqueness of the classes and how every instructor is different! Pole fit is by far my favorite class and it has helped improve my strength and confidence in myself and encourages me to continue trying new things. There is no question that I will continue going to Body of Bloomington as long as I am able to and I highly suggest everyone should at least try one class! 

-Alison Correll (client since November 2013)

Body of Bloomington is AWESOME!!! Tara is a fantastic instructor – she makes the classes both challenging and fun. I look forward to attending her barre class every week (sometimes twice if I’m lucky). 

Roslyn Radee (client since November 2013)

Every week I look forward to my classes at Body!  Being a working mom with two little ones I love working out on my lunch break or right after work.  The variety to classes and times fit perfect with schedule.  The classes are great and also a lot of fun.  I LOVE Body of Bloomington and have seen such great results from all the amazing classes!

-Brooke Grieder (client since November 2013)

Body of Bloomington has been a blessing in disguise. I’ve been a member at several other gyms in town and the atmosphere and customer service rank right up there with the best! The instructors are very knowledgeable and make you feel very comfortable. If you’re looking for a change of pace from high intensity workouts to a place that will leave you feeling relaxed and invigorated, then Body of Bloomington should be your choice.

Amy Matich (client since March 2014)

Body of Bloomington not only gives you a great workout, but it is a  fun and inviting place to go.  Tara is very professional, talented and makes extra effort to get to know her clients personally.   She makes you feel welcome regardless of fitness level and always strives to meet the needs of her customers.  I have nothing but positive to say about Tara and Body of Bloomington!

Jackie Foster (client since March 2014)

I started attending classes at Body of Bloomington in November of 2013 after being introduced to Pilates by a friend, and being frustrated by my current workout routine of cardio/weights in my basement.   I was worried about walking away from the cardio, but I started attending barre and pilates classes at Body about 5 times a week, with occasional cardio.  The changes in my body over the past year have been great, with no changes in my diet – I’m now leaner and more toned and STRONGER!   I started adding yoga in, which has helped with flexibility and relaxation.  I highly recommend Body to anyone wants to try something fun and different.  On top of that, I have made great friends in the instructors and other patrons!  There are many fitness options in town (I have tried several of them) and Body is my favorite.  I truly look forward to every workout!

Kate Warren (our first member when we opened in November 2013)

Body of Bloomington has provided a rare opportunity in this community. Not only has it employed the very best instructor’s in the area, it offers a warm, welcoming environment for patrons to feel comfortable. People walk through the doors of Body of Bloomington not knowing what to expect. They leave feeling good about themselves and what they have accomplished. All levels of fitness are encouraged to participate and relationships are built between the clients, the instructors, and the owner Tara. Every class is filled with fun, encouragement, and hard work allowing the guests to receive more than just a workout, but an inviting, challenging experience!
