Dancing has always been Brittney Mooney's passion, and growing up, she hopped from jazz to ballet to tap classes. When Mooney moved to New York City two years ago, she wanted to find something other than dance class that could provide her with a full body workout while still combining dance moves with challenging cardio. Enter ((305)) Fitness. Mooney loved the crazy energy of ((305))'s classes, and she approached founder Sadie Kurzban and offered to help her expand the business. That's how this Virginia native found herself closer to home in D.C., teaching as a master instructor at ((305)) Fitness's new outpost at BodySmith gym on 14th Street.
Mooney is a graduate of NYU's prestigious accelerated nursing program. As a nurse, she is interested in the human body and the holistic experience of a workout, which she applies to each class she teaches. Mooney's lifetime goal is to fuse her passion for both fitness and medicine. She is a Registered Nurse in the state of New York and Virginia and an accredited CPR/lifesaver professional by the American Heart Association. —Kate Friedman
