What is that? Glad you asked!
Pure Barre is a 55 minute workout that uses small isometric movements to lengthen & tone the body without bulking. Sorta think of a cross between yoga & pilates then add a ballet barre for support!
Each Pure Barre class begins with a warm-up in the center of the room, on the floor, and then standing with light weights to work those arm muscles. We’ll then move to the barre to work your thighs and your seat. After the seat work, you’ll do a series of ab exercises, followed by a cool down. While the flow of class is always the same, we are always changing the music and exercises, so you never experience the same class twice! | Pure Barre
The Pure Barre technique is a unique way to build strength, endurance and tone your muscles in a safe, low impact manner through the use of small focused movements. Strong toned arms, thighs, abs and seat are just a few of the areas that clients see the biggest change from Pure Barre. Lean muscle definition coupled with improved flexibility, posture and coordination help to create a strong yet graceful barre body. | Pure Barre
I started taking Pure Barre almost two years ago, because I was training for my first half-marathon & needed to cross train. Plus my sister-in-law recently started taking too & was looking incredible after having her first baby. So ok, I'll give it a try.
Y'all. I fell in love.
PB helped a ton with my core strength & gave my arms a bit of a tone, which is hard for runners sometimes.
I am the least coordinated person & thought I'd have a hard time with my lack of dance background, but that was far from the truth. Every class is different & that makes going multiple times in the week fun! I got bored with the classes at my other gym & stopped going, but with PB I'm constantly challenged & that keeps me engaged.
*And I must add that instructors are AWESOME & encourage you throughout your fitness journey.
...now for the punchline.
A bride & her squad walk into a Barre...and receive the best workout!
On Saturday, January 28th, a private class was held for bride-to-be, Abby & a few of her bridesmaids.
"Pure Barre was an experience like no other! I enjoyed the atmosphere as well as the structure of the class. I also couldn't walk for 3 days after, which is the sign of a killer workout! So much fun with some of my amazing bridesmaids!"
Not only can I take your wedding photos, but I can help you get in shape for your wedding day too! That's right. I am not only a wedding photographer, but a certified Pure Barre instructor! Eeeek!
Pure Barre has given me a sense of confidence that I never knew I had. And I actually get excited to workout! *Ha most days ;) - I cannot wait to share my love of PB with everyone who walks through our studio doors.
Come lift-tone-burn with me at the Barre soon! More information on the Mobile studio here! *But if you don't live in the Mobile area, don't you fret! There are studios all over the country!
