If you’ve ever taken a barre class, you’ll know it sure isn’t easy. Pure Barre is a low-impact full body workout made up of a series of small repetitive moves that cause muscles to shake (weird, but it’s what you actually want to happen). It’s a fusion of traditional ballet, Pilates and yoga that utilises 2 or 3-pound weights, a small ball, exercise bands and a mounted barre. It’s unlike any workout I’ve ever done, and the results have been immediate for me and everyone I’ve dragged to class. Because my schedule was pretty open, I decided to really get into my fitness during the month of February. I set myself the challenge of attending 28 classes in 28 days and while I had to double up a few times, I managed to achieve my goal.
