About Pure Barre:
Pure Barre is the fastest, most effective, yet safest way to change your body. In just 55 minutes you will achieve a full-body workout concentrating on the areas women struggle with the most: hips, thighs, seat, abdominals and arms. The Pure Barre technique is low-impact, protecting your joints by avoiding any bouncing or jumping. Each strength section of the workout is followed by a stretching section in order to create long, lean muscles without bulk. The technique works to defy gravity by tapering everything in and lifting it up.
Pure Barre offers a “First Week Free” package to brand new, local clients year round. Additionally, participants who take a minimum of three classes within their first week are offered a special $20 discount off of an “Intro Month” (normally $99).

About Pure Barre Columbia:
Pure Barre owners Addie Fairey and Anna Reynolds both came to Columbia after graduating from Clemson University, and opened their first Pure Barre studio on Greene Street in 2012. Addie and Anna saw tremendous value in the history, vibrancy, and unique quality of Five Points, and took advantage of the opportunity to become a part of the Five Points community, in the heart of the neighborhood. Owners Addie and Anna have seen such success in their Five Points location that they have also opened a studio in Irmo.
