If you think Pure Barre is for skinny white girls who are all dancers and can point their toes like ballerinas, you’re not wrong. However, you can still benefit greatly from this class. I learned about this method about a year ago from my friends and said “What’s barray?” I tossed it aside as another fad workout.
Lately, I have been having a bit of pain in my left knee and have had to lay off squatting and running. In search for something else inspiring to do I tried out Pure Barre in Princeton. I just completed my 4th class and I’m hooked!
I love the way Barre uses small isometric movements to spot tone your triceps, abs, inner and outer hip flexers and booty without any impact on your joints. It also really helps me with my flexibility and posture – forcing me to stop hyper extending in my hips (many women are prone to this). I love that the workout gets deep in to my muscles making them shake and burn with fatigue. BUT you are not left sore and in pain the next day. It’s fun to see how the tiniest movements can have a huge impact on my body in such a short amount of time.
I don’t know how long I’ll be ‘hooked’ on Pure Barre, one drawback is that the classes are relatively expensive, about $27 per class. I bought a unlimited 1 month pass for $100 so for now, I’m going as much as I can.
If you’re looking for something new to try, try Pure Barre!
