Pure Barre’s 20 Class Challenge

shape 1 So true. No excuses.

Pure Barre 7

Well we are officially halfway through our 20 class challenge. The challenge is to complete 20 classes in the month of May. As of May 15 I have done 11 classes which means I am ahead of schedule! If I stick to my normal class scheduled days then I have the potential to complete 22 classes this month. I really don’t know if my legs can handle that.

shape 2 My poor legs hurt all the time!

Pure Barre is unlike any other workout I have ever done! It is so challenging but yet doesn’t look challenging at all. It is the smallest of movements that focus so strongly on those specific muscles (arms, butt, legs and abs) in which your mind body connection has to be strong.

I have become addicted. I look forward to going to class and giving it my all. I have noticed changes in my body and I think that is a huge motivation! My seat (butt) is lifted, my arms are sculpted and my stomach is looking flatter. I can’t wait to see the results after I complete all my classes this month. I plan to continue the 5/6 days a week into June so that I look even better for our summer trip to Kiawah. Maybe I will even get brave enough to post a picture of me in a bathing suit in June. I plan on looking like Gisele (Bundchen) haha

If this is a cookie, I really want to eat it. I can eat it while tucking if that makes it any better.

Mother/Daughter at the Barre!

Mom and I were the featured Mother/Daughter duo at Pure Barre yesterday. They will feature a Mother/Daughter for all of this week in honor of Mothers Day next Sunday!

From Pure Barre Dayton’s Facebook Page:

All week we are celebrating our Mothers by featuring a mother/daughter duo who come to lift.tone.burn together.

Meet Alex and Diane Tobey. They have been coming to Pure Barre Dayton since January. They take a few classes together a week and would take more together if their busy schedules allowed. They both love the way class makes them feel strong and energized. Pure Barre has become such a part of their lives that when they are in the same room with a lot of people, they just look at each other and say “tuck, and tuck”!

Thank you Diane and Alex for all of the positive energy you bring to the studio daily!

Thanks Pure Barre!

Working out can be addicting with Pure Barre

Pure Barre 7

I am not one to “have fun” while working out. I hate running, I get bored at the gym and I have no motivation besides trying to look ok in a swimsuit in the summer.

Well in January I discovered Pure Barre. It is a mix of Pilates, Yoga, Plyometrics and Ballet. It is all VERY small movements. So small an inch this way, an inch that way is all you are moving.

Pure Barre 1

I couldn’t walk after my first class and I still can’t walk even after doing it for close to 5 months now. Their moto is to LTB (Lift Tone Burn). This happens every class. You burn between 400-650 calories in a 60 minute class. Your body will shake but boy does it work. You see results after just ten classes. So you come into the room and grab your weights, ball and band. The warm up and Arm exercising is always the same. The different excerisies for your thighs, seat (butt) and abs is up to the instructor.

You start with your warm-up which will make you tired and can’t believe that you have 55 minutes left of class.

Pure Barre 3

You start with Arms. Such a good arm workout using your own weight (planks/push ups, etc) followed by different moves using 2 or 3 pound weights.

Next you move onto thighs. This KILLS me. You do 3 different thigh exercises and it is all tough! Your legs will shake and that is the point! Embrace your Shake!

Pure Barre 6

On to “seat” work..AKA your butt. Two excerises here (per class) and your butt is bound to look amazing! If someone was to walk into class, they would truly think we are not doing anything!

Pure Barre 9

Finally minutes of class are spend on ab work. You spend around 10 minutes on ab exercises. Your abs with shake and it will hurt but it is totally worth it!
