Sample a new kind of fusion exercise with today's side deal: for $25, you get three ballet-Pilates-weights classes at Pure Barre’s Chapel Hill or Raleigh locations (a $69 value). Classes are scheduled from morning until evening most days of the week. You must use all three classes included in this Groupon within one month of starting.
Devised by Pure Barre founder Carrie Rezabek, these fusion classes balance 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 a smooth 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 (many students see results after 10 classes) 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 top the food chain.
Because the Pure Barre workout shuns any jumping or bouncing movement, already-overworked and somewhat-disgruntled joints will be spared any further stress. Though no dance experience is required to get in on this tri-flavored exercise, socks are required.
Pure Barre was featured in Women's Health magazine. While there aren't any online reviews for the Chapel Hill or Raleigh locations of Pure Barre, Yelpers give the Costa Mesa, California, location an average of 4.5 stars.
- Those coveted results are what have inspired dance-infused fitness programs such as Pure Barre, the total-body workout that combines Pilates, yoga, and dance to target the body areas all women struggle with—core, hips, butt, and arms. – Jen Ator, Women's Health
- It's low impact, so I'm not hurting my knees, but it's still intense. The hour goes by super fast, and after a month, I am seeing results. – Dacy Y., Yelp
In 2001, dancer Carrie Rezabek Dorr invited exercisers to join her in ballet-based workouts. Held in the basement of an office building without a staff, a sign outside, or even a bathroom, Carrie transformed her small business into a national franchise with locations in 33 states. Her Pure Barre system helps sculpt long, lean muscles. Using a ballet barre and isometric movements, the exercisers drastically shape areas such as the abs, hips, arms, and butt.
