Carmel Valley: New fitness business opens; Feb. 5 benefit to help baby in need

After recovering from a minor stroke episode, San Diego resident Amy Mewborn left her six-figure La Jolla finance career just nine months ago to pursue her newfound passion for fitness. More specifically, she fulfilled her dream of becoming an entrepreneur when she opened doors to Xtend Barre Carlsbad in May 2010, a fitness studio that offers a blend of dance, cardio and Pilates using the ballet barre techniques that are currently sweeping the nation.

Quickly growing to more than 700 clients, which consist of exercise enthusiasts, yogis, moms and brides-to-be, Mewborn jumped at the opportunity to sign a lease for a second 2,200-square-foot studio and retail space in Carmel Valley, which opened its doors on Jan. 10.

“I’m so thrilled to launch my second location in Carmel Valley,” says Mewborn. “It’s an opportune time as the neighborhood is still in the midst of developing, but what really draws me to this area is that it’s filled with people and business owners who understand the importance of building a community.”

To celebrate the opening, Mewborn will host a charity benefit to raise funds for a nonprofit cause that is near to her heart. On Feb. 5, from 6-9 p.m., Mewborn extends an invite to residents of Carmel Valley and the surrounding North County communities to attend “BURN for the Benefit”—a jam-packed charity event raising funds for “Team Angelina.”

Team Angelina is a non-profit organization, which benefits baby Angelina Repetti of North County, who was recently diagnosed with Stage 3 neuroblastoma cancer.

Xtend Barre Carmel Valley is located at 3422 Tripp Court, Suite C, San Diego, CA 92121; (858) 509-4807. For more information, please contact: (760) 213-6653, www.xtendbarrecarmelvalley.com.
