A new total body workout has hit Philadelphia and has gained popularity. The Pure Barre (pronounced Pure Bar) Technique boasts a workout that can deliver a dancer-like body, fast. Essentially, the workout is geared to zero in on a woman’s arms, abs, hips, and buttocks. The studio, located in Center City, recently opened and its classes are full. Channel 6 featured the Pure Barre Technique and the Philadelphia studio on its Healthcheck (Ali Gorman and Cheryl Mettendorf) series. See the sources below to view the video clip of the story.

Pure Barre Story
Carrie Rezabek is the dancer, choreographer, and fitness guru who created the Pure Barre Technique. Rezabek opened her first studio in 2001 in the basement of an office building in Birmingham, Michigan. With no signage, bathroom, or initial clients the original studio managed to outgrow the location and move to a new location. By 2006, the Pure Barre Technique began expanding and is now offered in studios nationwide.
What is the Pure Barre Technique?
The Pure Barre Technique incorporates the disciplines of ballet, Pilates, yoga, and light resistance work. It is a 55 minute long, full body workout that lifts, tones, and burns fat. Designed to be low-impact, the workout targets areas women struggle with and are the: arms, abs, hips, and buttocks. It is not an aerobic class but does elevate the heart rate. Because it is a low-impact workout, it is perceived as less intense; however, the workout is tougher than it looks.
Expected Results from the Workout
Clients can expect to see results after committing to 10 workouts by taking three to four Pure Barre classes per week (that should take approximately three weeks). Each class utilizes a: ballet barre, mat, and light resistance training. Rezabek designed the technique to be the most effective, fastest, yet safest way to get a dancer-like body.
Get a long, lean dancer-like body and start working out at the Philadelphia studio. Classes are quickly filling up, so sign up (and get in on the one of the specials) for Pure Barre classes before there is a waiting list.
