Pure Barre TriBeCa/Financial District

Five-Class Pack

Retail Value: $167 | Starting Bid: $65

Looking to try a new workout class? How about one that offers a full-body workout in less than an hour that also aims to “block out life” during the session? Sounds like Pure Barre could be for you…
In less than an hour you will achieve a full-body workout concentrating on the areas women struggle with the most: hips, thighs, seat, abdominals and arms. The Pure Barre technique is low-impact, protecting your joints by avoiding any bouncing or jumping. Each strength section of the workout is followed by a stretching section in order to create long, lean muscles without bulk. The technique works to defy gravity by tapering everything in and lifting it up! The concentration involved while taking Pure Barre allows you to block "life" out during class, creating the mental benefit similarly obtained by the practice of yoga or meditation. A transformed body and a clear head in under an hour—it doesn't get much better than this.
