“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 - PB Founder and Chief Concept Officer

one tiny idea, endless possibilities

Pure Barre is the largest, most established barre franchise in the nation, with more than 200 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, Carrie successfully grew Pure Barre into the dynamic company it is today.

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 other’s fitness and lifestyle goals. In addition to classes, Pure Barre also offers DVDs, equipment and exercise apparel.

Client Testimonials

“I have made forever friends in my sticky socks and will always credit Pure Barre as the catalyst that "lifted" me into a brand new life.

— Stacy

“I really love the way Pure Barre has positively affected my self-image. I’ve watched Pure Barre bring women together who are all striving for the same goal. I love that age/size/shape doesn't matter when you're at the barre. There is a reason it’s sweeping the nation: it's because it really works, and it's fun!”

— Allison

"I started Pure Barre when I began training for my third half marathon. With my previous training's, I often suffered from knee pain and shin splints. By consistently doing Pure Barre, I was hoping that the seat, leg, and core work would make me a stronger runner. I was pleasantly surprised by how quickly I started to notice a difference in my running! Now, I can't imagine running without Pure Barre.”
