Pure Barre

What is it?

Barre is a pilates-based group workout class that utilizes a ballet barre, weights, and resistance bands. At Pure Barre, you will never take the same class twice. Every studio uses the same ballet-influenced technique and class structure so you know what to expect when taking classes at other studios while traveling.

Classic

The equipment used in this moderately-paced class are 2lbs and 3lbs handheld weights, a tube, and a ball.

Empower

In this cardio-based class, a stepping stool, handheld weights, and wrist/ankle weights are used. Although Pure Barre provides all equipment, I like to use my 1lbs bone-colored Bala Bangles for wrist and ankle weights.

Reform

This is a resistance band focused class. There are two resistance bands used – short red tubes on the barre and long grey tubes on the baseboard – as well as sliders. This is a slower-paced class.

Why I Love Pure Barre

I’ve always loved pilates, but I wanted an extra challenge. This was the perfect advancement. And with my background in dance, the ballet-inspired movements make me feel back in my element.

There are modifications for everything such as using no equipment and doing push-ups on the barre instead of the floor. What makes Pure Barre great is that it’s for everyone at every stage of fitness – including when recovering from an injury and during pregnancy.

Lastly, I love that it’s a chain so I can take these classes where I travel to. And if I’m unable to make it to a studio, I can take an online class through Pure Barre Go.
