Yesterday evening we had another great Junior League opportunity. A member used her connections and we got a preview class at Pure Barre.
Here’s a description from their website:
Pure Barre is the fastest, most effective way to change the shape of your body. Using small isometric movements at the ballet barre set to motivating music, Pure Barre lifts your seat, tones your thighs, abs and arms and burns fat in record breaking time. Clients see results in just 10 classes, lose inches in weeks and have fun doing it!
I don’t know how fast one sees results, but we definitely got a great workout and had fun doing it.
Pure Barre technique is:
- Pure fun.
- Pure intensity.
- Pure…ly do-able without learning fancy footwork.
- Pure…ly adaptable to your fitness level and/or limitations.
- Pure…ly addictive. I want to go back!
Our class had women of varying degrees of fitness and flexibility, and the instructor kept an eye on each of us and assured our success. I have some pretty serious restrictions with my back, but I didn’t even need to modify anything in the particular class we had yesterday, nor did I even make the instructor aware of my plight. I do understand from my friend who is a new instructor that each instructor teaches a different routine, so once I’ve tried a few more, I’ll be better able to speak to how well it works for those of us with some limitations, but I already know there’s at least one well-suited to my needs. Given my experience and my candid discussion with my friend before I signed up, I am comfortable saying they are a friendly environment for most any special consideration.
Has anyone else tried the Pure Barre technique?
What’s up for the weekend?
