“For over a decade, I’ve watched Pure Barre change bodies across the nation. The best part is that not only does it change bodies, it changes lives.”

- Carrie Rezabek Dorr - Pure Barre Founder

one tiny idea, endless possibilities

Pure Barre is the largest, most established barre franchise in the nation, with more than 375 studios across the country, and more opening every month. Pure Barre is a total body workout that utilizes the ballet barre to perform small, isometric movements, which burn fat, sculpt muscles and create long, lean physiques.

Pure Barre was founded by dancer, choreographer and fitness guru Carrie Rezabek Dorr. Carrie opened her first studio in the basement of an office building in Birmingham, MI in 2001. With no initial clients, staff, signage or even a bathroom, the concept took off as clients were amazed by the results they saw from the workout.

In July of 2009, Pure Barre became a franchise and has exploded in popularity, due to its extremely effective technique (which transforms the shape of a woman’s body in record-breaking time); friendly, high-energy atmosphere; and fun, motivating music.

Pure Barre is more than just a workout; it’s a lifestyle. At Pure Barre, women share a sense of community, in which they are inspired and empowered by each others' fitness and lifestyle goals. In addition to classes, Pure Barre also offers DVDs, equipment and exercise apparel.

Client Testimonials

My advice to someone who is new to Pure Barre is to not doubt yourself. Jump in sticky socks first and go for it! You will be so amazed at how quickly your body changes and adapts.

— Madeleine H.

I quickly found that Pure Barre was a complete workout that I couldn’t wait to go back to day after day. With the addition of the Platform class, my Pure Barre studio offers everything I need in my workout.

— Lisa D.

I have seen improvements in my strength and I believe Pure Barre is the reason I am a strong person physically and emotionally.

— Tara. S.

My best advice is to not see Pure Barre as just a workout, see it as a community of motivated ladies (and gentlemen). For the first time in my life, I will feel confident enough to wear a bikini this summer!

— Capri H.

I have completed half marathons and triathlons, and never has my body responded like it has to Pure Barre in such a short amount of time. In a short 3 months, I lost 9.5 pounds and I’m at a weight I haven’t been in 20 years!

— Cindy H.

Pure Barre is an incredible workout where you are offered individualized support and a positive environment. I love how I was able to use every muscle group in just one class!!

— Kaitlyn F.

I love the results, the music, the awesome teachers, the cute clothes, and the friends I've made in the studio. Pure Barre is the whole experience, and I love it!

— Kelly P.

I felt strong, sassy and beautiful on my wedding day. I’m so grateful for Pure Barre helping me get there!

— Brittany P.

I like that at Pure Barre you workout with people of all fitness levels side by side, yet you are all pushed to your limit. Your competition is you, but your motivation comes from those around you.

— Carol S.

As a student with a tight budget, I was motivated to stick to my financial commitment to Pure Barre and tried to go to class 3-4 times a week that first month. Now I go 5 times a week and get FOMO (fear of missing out) if I don’t!

— Erin C.

I love that even after 9 months of classes, I am still challenged and classes are never boring! Now matter how stressful my day is, during the 55 minutes of class I can set everything aside and focus on myself.

— Brittany S.

There is often a stereotype associated with barre exercises and Pure Barre shatters that stereotype. It does not matter your age, body type or athletic ability - any Pure Barre studio you walk into wants you to be there.

— Lauren A.

Pure Barre is for everyone. You don’t need to be in shape to start, you just need to be willing to try. Have an open mind and your body will do the rest.

— Corey P.

Pure Barre has helped me get in shape, tone up, get stronger, and be more confident. It has been the first workout I like - I miss it when I don't go!

— Lauren D.

Pure Barre helped me stay fit throughout my pregnancy, have a smooth and easy delivery, and has helped me bounce back after having my beautiful daughter! It helps me stay sane, happy, and loving myself!

— Courtney R.

Pure barre has done amazing things for my body (and most importantly) my mind and spirit during a very stressful year. I'm so thankful to have found Pure Barre!

— Anna B.

Pure Barre truly teaches one to honor one’s body, and to be amazed by all it can do.

— Lindsay F.

Pure Barre is always changing and it’s always a challenge. Whereas going to the gym or running can get monotonous, Pure Barre never is.

— Brandilyn S.

My entire body has changed. My pants fit more snugly and that awful post-baby tummy that people swear you never  lose is going away.

— Jackie W.

My time is limited and valuable - Pure Barre gives me an intense full body workout in 55 minutes!

— Erin K.

I love that it's a physical workout but anyone can do it, regardless of age or activity level or body type. Most importantly, it's 55 minutes to myself, where I can focus only on me and know that I'm starting my day on a positive note.

— Allison K.

I've run 2 marathons and my body looks and feels stronger after 10 Pure Barre classes than it did after my first or second marathon.

— Jessie G.

My body is more toned than it has ever been--my arms, abs, thighs, and seat have all been tightened and lifted. I have also made amazing strides in my flexibility and balance.

— Bridget B.

I have seen inches melt away. I see my waist again and love the sculpting in my arms and legs. I am stronger and have more stamina. The workout never gets easier, and I am proud when I can finish a workout.

— Candice A.
