Pure Barre Jacksonville Beach
Carrie Rezabek Dorr dedicated the first years of her life to professionally dancing and choreographing at events across the country. To keep her long, lean dancer's muscles in peak condition, she devoted her spare time to learning more about fitness in general and Pilates in particular. Carrie had the inspired notion to integrate these practices into her deeply ingrained training regimen, and she founded her first studio in 2001.
Her signature barre workouts allow students to steady themselves on a ballet barre while performing invigorating sequences of isometric exercises, which tone muscles throughout the legs, core, and arms. These sequences alternate between strength-building exercises and deep, restorative stretches, taking care to avoid unnecessary joint stress by eschewing any bouncing, jumping, or belly flopping. Although instructors may play uplifting music throughout each class, the workouts typically require a yoga-like focus as students constantly monitor and adjust their form and technique.
Beginning in 2001 as a small fitness operation, Pure Barre has since blossomed into a widely acclaimed, widely publicized approach to exercise with a nationwide following. Each 55-minute Pure Barre class is broken into four sections (arms, seat, thighs, and abs) and set to customized music that rotates each week. The high-intensity, low-impact routines change frequently, keeping workouts challenging and fun. Dedicated participants of the method often see significant results in as little as three–four weeks.
