Our friends over at Pure Barre Newport Beach are celebrating their fourth anniversary on Saturday, March 2, from 7:15 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Not only do you have the chance to try out complementary classes every hour, but you also have the opportunity to enjoy ONEHOPE Wine champagne, juices by Ritual Wellness, free chair massages from Harmony Wellness Center, tasty bites from Greenleaf Chop Shop, 25 percent off boutique clothing and more. In preparation, we decided to take a look at the benefits of Pure Barre before we head over. Enjoy! Low impact A common excuse or complaint about workouts is the heavy impact on your joints. If you have bad knees, hips or wrists, Pure Barre is the ideal workout for your body because there is no jumping or bouncing to further aggravate your joints. Tones problem areas Pure Barre was developed by dancer, choreographer and fitness guru, Carrie Rezabek Dorr, and focuses on key problem areas for women: abdominals, hips, arms and bottoms. Using small, repetitive movements, Pure Barre tones up these areas that women often have difficulty with. It's great for moms too Getting back to pre-pregnancy shape can be difficult and frustrating. Pure Barre offers moms three months of unlimited classes at a special price to help you get your abs, hips, thighs and everything else back in shape. Become long AND lean After each section of class is finished, it is immediately followed by a stretching section for that muscle group to help you create long and lean muscle without the fear of bulking up, a common deterrent to working out regularly. Lower your stress A study released last year showed that listening to music every day can lower your stress! Pure Barre classes are driven by popular music so not only are you releasing happy exercise endorphins, but you are also letting go of your stress. Calorie burning Students can burn up to 500 calories in one class - enough said! Anyone can do it! Classes are designed to allow everyone to workout to their own pace and ability level. If you are brand new or a Pure Barre veteran, everyone is guaranteed an effective workout. So head over!
