Exercise keeps the body in peak condition, which explains the marbleized ThighMaster lying next to Michelangelo's David. Enjoy an anatomical Renaissance with today's Groupon: for $35, you get three classes at Pure Barre in Denver and Lone Tree (a $69 value).
Pure Barre, highlighted on Fox 31 and in the Denver Post, sprung from the mind of former choreographer Carrie Rezabek Dorr, who formulated a series of low-impact movements to comprise a fun, fat-burning, full-body workout. Students who have never danced before can leap into the ballet barre’s highly focused routines that slim girth and hips and fortify abdominal walls against attacks by armies of gingerbread men. Each one-hour class alternates between low-impact strength-training and stretching sessions to craft lean, robust muscles and shield joints from injury. The schedule, like a Victorian novel about a cockney chimney sweep and the queen’s monocle model training for a marathon, brims with various classes that run seven days a week beginning as early as 6 a.m. and as late as 6:30 p.m.
Though Pure Barre sometimes features a discounted price online, this Groupon still offers the best deal available.
Beginning in 2001 as a small fitness operation in the basement of an office building, Pure Barre has since blossomed into a widely acclaimed, widely publicized approach to exercise with a nationwide following. Dancer, choreographer, and fitness buff Carrie Rezabek Dorr founded Pure Barre more than a decade ago in Birmingham, MI. Since then, Carrie has traveled around the country, hopping from gym to gym demonstrating the innovative program that draws techniques from ballet. Much like angering a witch with a penchant for frog spells, performing the Pure Barre technique can be a fast and effective way to transform your body. Motivating music slices through the 60-minute workouts, each of which utilizes a ballet barre and small isometric movements designed to burn fat and tone muscles.
