Pure Barre is a large franchise of over 200 studios across the country. It’s a workout that transforms the shape of a woman’s body with a combination of ballet dance moves, the toning of Pilates, and the relaxation of yoga in a 55 minute time frame. The Barre technique is low impact, so it’s easy on the joints with no jumping around. A dancer, choreographer, and fitness guru, Carrie Rezabek Dorr, founded pure Barre when she opened her first studio in 2001 in Birmingham, Michigan. In just a few years, Pure Barre became a popular franchise in July 2009. It’s not just a workout – it’s a lifestyle!
