OULA Fitness

OULA Fitness® is a high-energy, calorie burning, crazy-fun dance workout to Top 40s hits.  Classes are one epic hour of sweat, joy and total inspiration.  OULA is Dancemania for the Soul.

Our mission is to inspire and empower people from all phases and stages of life to live to their fullest.  We believe in connection rather than competition, fierce self-love, and not taking ourselves too seriously.  We make fitness fun and give even the most gym-shy person a home in fitness.

OULA classes feel like part living room dance party, part therapy session… all with your best friends, whether you’ve known them for minutes or years.   OULA knows that every person wants and has a deep desire to feel and be connected.  It is in connection that we are seen, heard, felt, loved.  The place of connection is where trust is built and freedom is allowed.  It is here in the individual that creativity, confidence and growth expand.  OULA is connection, with self and others.  OULA is community.

OULA was started in 2010 by Helena-native and graduate of the University of Montana, Kali Lindner.  During the past four years, the company has grown to over 100 instructors in 3 countries.  2015 is already shaping up to be a big year with trainings in Minneapolis through a partnership with the YMCA and Denver, our first retreat in Baja, Mexico this spring, a growing community of dancers taking our classes online and an invitation to present at a fitness convention in Chicago this fall.  Kali was the recipient of the 2014 Leadership Award through Global Women’s Summits, and OULA has been selected by Google to be part of their online marketing mentorship program for companies they identify with great growth potential.
