The first time I ever heard of Pure Barre, I was floating in a pool at more than 425 pounds. Miserable and pulling myself through the water, I listened as my fit neighbor talked about her new job as a teacher at Pure Barre. It sounded great, but I had only just started making lifestyle changes and I dismissed the idea of a ballet-inspired workout as something I’d never dream of doing. But the idea of Pure Barre still stuck with me…
After months of collecting every bit of courage I could muster (and after months of that fit teacher reassuring me that I could do it) I finally passed through the doors at Pure Barre St. Petersburg. With just one class, I knew that this was exactly what I needed. I felt my body changing, but more importantly, I felt the support to keep going. Every single instructor at Pure Barre St. Petersburg has motivated me and encouraged me to keep pushing myself. Each time I walk into the studio, I am reminded that I have an entire team of strong, amazing women who support me.
It’s not about the 200 pounds I’ve lost; my Pure Barre story is about the endless source of positivity I’ve found at the studio. Every class makes me shake, leaves me sweaty, and feeds my soul.
