For those of you that I’m foursquare friends with, it comes as no surprise to you that I’ve fallen in love with Pure Barre Westlake/Avon over the past 10 months or so. However, it may surprise some of you that are familiar with my rocky history with barre classes
Owner, Lori Standen, brought her love of barre to northeast Ohio and along with it she hired a group of talented staff in Avon. I personally have Lori, Maggie, Alice and Jenny to thank for burning me into shape leading up to our July nuptials. I purchased the Bride-To-Be package because I knew I’d be living in a bikini for almost 2 weeks in Maui!
What exactly is a barre workout?
In just 55 minutes, you will achieve a total body workout targeted at the areas of the body women struggle with most: seat, hips, thighs, abs, and arms. Each strength section of the workout is followed by a stretch section, which will help you achieve a long, lean, and strong physique.
I, for one, feel much stronger than I was a year ago, have more muscle definition and love how warm and welcoming everyone (instructors included) are in the studio.
Lori’s success has led her to opening a second location in downtown Rocky River less than one year after the ribbon-cutting at PB Westlake/Avon. (If there’s any confusion about the Westlake/Avon name – the studio was originally supposed to be in Westlake, but ended up in Avon.) Since I spend so much time in Rocky River, I know I’ll be frequenting the new space, but will have the luxury of using my classes in both studios – a rarity in boutique fitness locations.
Pure Barre Rocky River is slated to open on Friday, January 17, 2013. And I have quite the Pure Barre giveaway for you!
You can enter to be one of the three lucky winners by doing one or all of the following:
