Pure Barre Tulsa
Pure Barre's first-ever class was held in a basement with no clients, signs, or even a bathroom. Little more than a pipe dream beneath pipes, it nevertheless endured, thanks to the passion of founder Carrie Rezabek Dorr. Her drive, and the quality of the workout, led the business to grow to more than 130 locations worldwide, including the recently founded Tulsa location.
Megan, co-owner of the Tulsa branch, says she and a friend discovered the class in Dallas, then turned to the workout's DVDs for more. Soon they noticed their bodies changing while enjoying the workout's energetic music and decided they wanted to share the ballet-inspired exercises with their community.
After the first two weeks of being open, they knew they'd made a positive impact when a client popped in to say: "I have been working out with a personal trainer for over two months with little results, [yet] I have been taking Purre Barre for two weeks and have lost three inches and six pounds." With clients of all ages and fitness levels participating, Megan and her team hope they can help other clients reach their fitness goals, too.
