  • Breaking Down The Barre at Pure Barre 04.02.13



    We love the amazing results Pure Barre workouts offer just as much as we love learning about the dozens of weight loss success stories from brides-to-be, new moms and the everyday girl (or guy) looking to tone, lose weight and gain strength and flexibility!

    With nearly three years in Seattle, Pure Barre has seen thousands of clients at their three area locations, many of whom are now working at advanced levels. But owner Sami Sweeney wanted to address her beginner students looking to better understand the workout, as well as those curious to try a barre class but who may be unsure of their fitness level and ability, and make them feel confident and excited about the workout.

    To remedy this Pure Barre is offering their second “Breaking Down The Barre” class on Saturday, April 20 at 3 p.m. at Pure Barre Queen Anne, after their first class sold out quickly.

    The class is free to attend and all guests must register in advance to hold their place. Sign up via email at queenanne@purebarre.com or call 206-535-8910.
