The best workouts combine a variety of exercise styles, which is why nine out of 10 doctors recommend juggling hammers while riding a tandem bike through a swimming pool. Today's Groupon invites your physique to try a new kind of fusion exercise: for $20, you get two ballet-Pilates-weights classes at Pure Barre Boca Raton (a $46 value). With classes scheduled from morning until night, choose your own time to enjoy two classes.
Devised by Pure Barre founder Carrie Rezabek, these fusion classes will work your body in ways it's never been worked before by balancing the grace of dance with the exertion of lifting and the soothing stretching of stretching. Each 55 to 60-minute session loosens, strengthens, and lengthens the body through the perfect blend of the ballet barre, weight training, and limber Pilates. In the process, you'll tone your tush, thighs, hips, arms, and abs while burning fat efficiently and blocking out the invasive anxieties of the real world, such as the lingering dread that squirrels are evolving faster than us and will soon overtake us on the food chain.
No dance experience is required to get in on this new tri-flavored exercise. Long pants are recommended and socks are required, so no barefoot barre hanky-panky. Because the Pure Barre workout shuns any jumping or bouncing movement, you won't put any more stress on your already overworked and somewhat disgruntled joints. You might even hear them sing audible hallelujahs during your workout instead of their usual creaks and pops.
While there are few reviews for Pure Barre Boca Raton, the Pure Barre web site offers numerous testimonials from people who swear by the workout. Here’s a look at what they say:
- Since taking weekly classes at Pure Barre I have noticed far more definition in my muscles and have developed more of a leaner longer physique. – Jennifer H., Solana Beach, CA
- Now, when I hear an upbeat song on the radio, I tuck, tuck, and hold. While waiting for the copier to finish, I squeeze to the mid-line. And while waiting on the microwave, I do tricep dips. It has truly changed my life. ¬– Amy J., Lexington, KY
