Why I Barre: Jackie

We asked and you delivered! This month we will be sharing #WhyIBarre stories from Pure Barre enthusiasts all over the country. Want to share your story? Record a 15 second video in your studio and upload it to Instagram using #WhyIBarre for a chance to win a month of classes at the studio of your choice!

I am a partner in a law firm with an equally ambitious lawyer husband. We have two beautiful young children – ages one and three – and we value spending as much time as possible with our kids despite our busy schedules. That leaves very little time to work out, and despite putting in hours at the gym and on the treadmill, I just wasn’t seeing results.

My best friend from college came to visit me a month ago and she looked better than she had when we were 20! I asked her what her secret was and she said Pure Barre! At that moment, we literally walked to the closest studio and I signed up for the New Client Special. Four weeks and 20 classes later and not only am I hooked, but I have a body that I would have died for before I had children!  I love the camaraderie in the studio, the skill of the teachers, and the great music, but I can’t lie that the best part about Pure Barre is looking in the mirror!

My entire body is changed. My pants fit more snugly, my arms and shoulders are channeling Michelle Obama, and even that awful post-baby tummy that people swear you NEVER lose is going away.

My advice for someone just consider Pure Barre is to get a 10 class pack and go five days a week for two weeks. You can’t judge anything after one class, but I promise if you put in that time you will see results!
