pure barre

Contrary to what my boyfriend thought when I said I was going to a Barre class – Pure Barre is not a class/beer or wine tasting located at a Bar. No, it’s a workout class that focuses on lifting and toning your body using a ballet barre and it is without a doubt the fastest and most effective way to change and shape your body.


I was lucky enough to be invited to a Saturday afternoon class at the new Pure Barre location on Newbury St. by Blog and Tweet Boston. While I had done a class or two last Spring at the Newton location, I was sure this class was going to kick my butt seeing how out of shape I am!

The Newbury location (which is located above a Starbucks – how perfect!) was so cute and I immediately felt at ease when greeted by the Pure Barre girls. I was excited to see some familiar bloggers at the class and meet some new ones. After a brief intro by Pure Barre, Jen (Boston bachelorette) and the other girls in the class, we kicked into high gear….

Just Kidding I was probably the worst kid in class…

Let me tell you, in the first 2 minutes, I could see why this class will change your body and your life. I mean, I was feeling it right away. Between the barre and mat sequences and the weights, it was 60 minutes of PURE strength and toning exercises. I could tell I would feel the burn right away and that it was going to be good! Even though I struggled a bit, the instructors were so nice and supportive! I loved the music they played as well, as it kept the energy of the room at a high.

As bikini season is creeping up, this is probably the best way to tone up and really enjoy working out! As effective as the class is, it is equally fun and I know you won’t regret visiting the girls at Pure Barre on Newbury!

A big thanks to Pure Barre BostonJen @BosBachelorette, Kerrie @UrbanGuide2Life and @BlogAndTweetBos for such a fit and fun afternoon!
