Pure Barre Savannah

Holy Hell.

I went to the 5:30pm class for Pure Barre last night and would of probably have rather run 20 miles. And I mean that in the best way possible.

That class kicked my ass. Literally. I tucked my tush and gyrated my hips until I felt like Shakira laying on a yoga mat.

After reading a bunch of healthy living bloggers and their LOVE for Pure Barre…. I was stoked when I saw it coming to Savannah a few months ago. Finally on Sunday night, when I was at Katie’s house enjoying some wine, we decided to take a chance at a class.

Our instructor was super nice and walked around to help us newbies with our posture and tucking. I was sweating like a long run on a summer day. But that didn’t sway me from gyrating.

To begin the class, you do a quick warm-up and then immediately start with the arms & abs. I never thought 2 lb weights would rock my world. But they did. And make no mistakes, I LOVE to find a workout that challenges me and makes me sore. And what girl wouldn’t want to say goodbye to arm flab!

Then we started into thighs…. I had somewhat of a hard time when we got to the barre portion, because with my weak knee, I have a hard time squatting and doing exercises from a low position. I was extremely thankful when the instructor said “last 30 seconds”. My muscles were shaking and sweat was pouring off my forehead.

After some barre work for our thighs, we worked our tushies. Let me tell you, I was not blessed like J.Lo but good grief… I feel like my ass was just risen up to the heavens. I LOVED the tush part of the workout. Hard, but you could immediately feel where you were working.

After some stretching at the end, we were done {and a collective sigh of relief… ahhhh}

And while I grumbled in my head throughout; “why do these 2 lb weights seem to weigh a ton?”, “am I THAT out of shape?” and “damn… maybe I’ll look like Jessica Biel if I keep this up”- I LOVED the program and class. I can totally see why they say that people see results in as little as ten classes.

So if you have a Pure Barre in  your area… go check it out! It would be great cross training for running. You can’t be a fabulous runner if your core isn’t strong!

** This review is my honest opinion. I paid for my own class and would do so again!**

  1. I purchased Living Social deal for 4 classes- I need to get there! You inspire me! Let me know when you are going back.
    Thanks for the review!

  2. I recognize your story from my first time Crossfit experience. I would love to try Pure Barre, but unfortunately we don’t have much to choose from in Rincon 🙁
    Keep up the good work VTBH!

  3. I got the Living Social deal too! I need to get in there soon too. I went and joined a friend one Friday for my first class… it’s a definitely a different type of workout. I love trying new things. Can’t wait to go back!
