The best workouts combine a variety of exercise styles, which is why 9 out of 10 doctors recommend juggling hammers while riding a unicycle 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 at the Germantown location on Farmington Road (a $40 value).
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-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. With sessions scheduled from morning until night, you can enjoy your two classes on your own time.
No dance experience is required to get in on this new tri-flavored exercise. 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.
