Tips on What to Wear to Pure Barre
On the first of April, I decided to try something new and went to my first Pure Barre class. As I walked into the studio I was greeted with smiles and warm hellos, which was such a relief. As I continue to try new things in the area interacting with friendly people makes it all the more fun.
How did I hear about Pure Barre?
I’ve been doing barre3 for over two years and wanted to see what other barre classes were like. Also, I’ve read posts on other bloggers sites (Oak+Oats & Shawna Leeann) and have always been intrigued to try it, but never gave it a try. When one of my friends from college announced she was opening up a location in West Des Moines, Iowa, I decided to finally see what all of the hype was about.
How was the first class?
After my first Pure Barre class, I’ve decided Pure Barre is no joke. I was advised by the instructor prior to class beginning that she was switching things up a bit today and that it would be harder than normal for the whole class. It was one of the harder workout classes in a studio that I’ve done and I’m glad I conquered it. Let’s be real here, the majority of my workouts are runs around the neighborhood, which means I’m not the strongest so Pure Barre might not be as hard for you as it was for me. Thankfully, Pure Barre classes are nowhere near as hard as high school sports practice was. Anyone who has had to carry medicine balls above their head while running the halls and stairs of the entire school would agree that Pure Barre is more fun.
Why do I workout?
I workout because I want to healthy. Working out for me is not about losing weight. It’s about getting fit and becoming stronger. I workout because I want to be better, a better wife, employee, friend, etc. Working out puts me in a better mood and helps me stay emotionally balanced. Also, the confidence I gain from conquering a hard workout is a great feeling.
Class Attire Essentials
To be prepared for your first Pure Barre class I highly recommend getting a pair of sticky socks or you’ll be slipping all over the place. Pure Barre studios are carpeted and they encourage you to wear sticky socks. The studios carry them so you can easily pick up a pair right before class begins.
