S&B co-founders Madelaine O’Connell, Janie Gaughan and Sarah Warner all share a serious passion for working out. Janie and Sarah both work in the digital advertising industry and met in 2011 where they became fast friends and workout partners. The duo later befriended Madelaine while taking her class at the Bari studio.
Janie, Sarah, and Madelaine know that there are plenty of other ambitious women out there who love (and need) a good sweat. S&B was born to connect them and provide access to great workouts and new perspectives on balancing fitness, work, and life!
