“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 325 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

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.

Pure Barre is a perfect storm of things that I love that make me feel my best! It's a culmination of exercise, positive attitudes, friendships and support.

— Emileigh W.

I love that it's a physical workout that anyone can do, 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 have seen results in as little at ten classes. Not only do I feel stronger, but I have lost a solid 1/2 inch all around my body (calves, thighs, waist, hips and arms)!

— Lisa P.

Being an athlete my whole life, I have trained in a multitude of ways: cross training, weight lifting, long distance running, and yoga, but I have never seen results as drastically and as quickly as I have with Pure Barre.

— Cat O.

The full hour of concentrating on myself and my body is like mindful meditation.  I forget all the stresses of everyday life, and when I leave I am refreshed and ready for the day!  I also love the re-shaping of my body.

— Nicki B.

I’m a working mom with 3 kids at home. It’s hard to get to class. It takes a great deal of arranging schedules. But as other Pure Barre addicts will say…it is SO worth it!

— Kate A.

“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.”

— Nikole

Pure Barre has been a life changer. It truly has made me a stronger person physically and mentally.

— Shelly

Being a nursing student is busy, stressful, and exhausting. I have found with Pure Barre that this hour of my day energizes, conditions, and relieves me on a daily basis. Couldn't imagine life without it!

— Maggie

My daughter and I discovered Pure Barre and have been hooked ever since! We love being fit and healthy and exercising together. It has been great bonding time for us. We love the vibrant music, instructors and the entire challenge!

Two words for Pure Barre:  curiously addictive.  I plan my week around my Pure Barre classes.  It keeps me grounded, focused and less stressed.

— Rebecca

As a new mom, my weekly tucking sessions have made a huge improvement in my post baby body. I weigh less than I did before I was pregnant! And for the first time in a long time, I actually love my bathing suit body.

With a combination of great eating habits and a love for running, I used Pure Barre to prepare for my wedding and never looked better!
