Life is definitely better at the barre. Guys, you know I always want to share what I love. I have talked about yoga, cardio, trainers…and I think I found the perfect combination. If you are looking for a low-impact, group fitness workout that will lift your mood and your behind, Pure Barre is the place.
My close friend D introduced me to Pure Barre in Millburn/Short Hills and I had been completely dedicated for 2 months. I have been missing from PB these past 2 weeks though because…craziness (!!) and miss it BAD. PB is an incredible space, with motivating instructors who make you sweat and give you so much attention during class. I love how they go around and stop to correct my posture, I love the energy in the room and the music…instant mood changer!
The Pure Barre technique is high intensity but with very low impact, meaning you’ll get a great workout without putting excessive stress on your joints. They focus on very tiny isometric movements for the WHOLE body. I was sore and discovered muscles I never worked out before! Pure Barre is one of the fastest, most effective ways to change your shape. Clients typically see the best results when they take 3-4 classes per week. Classes are challenging but never leave you feeling defeated.
Busy moms, the class schedule is great. Management is always listening and adding classes to fit busy schedules (the app is the best!). I know this is something we can all appreciate.
When I heard that co-owners Melanie Colman and Molly D’Allesio are both busy working moms themselves, it gave me even more motivation to stick with it. A big supporter of local and women-owned businesses, their positive and encouraging attitude makes my visits to Pure Barre extra special. These women put you at ease. Strong, fit mommies are just like us! You can often hear Melanie and Molly share stories with other members about the demands of raising little people, balancing work and family and coming up with creative ideas to give members extra goals and challenges. We’re all busy, yet there we all are, at PB, becoming mentally and physically better for our families.
With over 300 studios nationwide, you have to try PB! Local friends…I’ll see you at the barre!
