Why I Spend So Much Time At The Barre


"See you at the barre tonight?" That phrase can mean two different things depending on the spelling! I am not talking about your local watering hole- I am talking about this glorious thing called a barre workout. Barre workouts have risen in popularity over the last few years, and for good reason. The physical and mental benefits of barre are addicting and have created a cult-like following. I have been a client at Pure Barre River Oaks for 3 years now, and owe a lot to the team there for helping me to lift, tone, and burn!

Pure Barre is a collection of 45-50 minute fast, effective total body workouts.

In only 50 minutes you'll get the best of barre - long and lean muscle tone without the bulk.
