:: March Madness Week 1 ::
If you’ve been following us on Instagram (which you should be, duh!) you know that this week we started our March Madness challenge. 4 studios in 4 weeks with a weekly recap for you babes to read every Friday! We’ll be doing work out studio tours to our favorite places in Orange County that you can find near you!
Now for the first studio. . .
. . .tuck & lift and tuck & lift.
Those are the words that will be ringing in your head while the Pure Barre instructors push and motivate you to lift, tone and burn during your 60 minute full body work out. After we took a week full of booty burnin’ classes (seriously, crawling up the stairs took a little extra effort this week) we are showing you a look into the Newport Beach Pure Barre location with a few sneak peak poses corrected by owner, Monica Pommier Grubin. We have been long time fans of Pure Barre because it gets us back to our roots of being in a studio working out our ex dancer bods without the leaps that, lets be honest, kills our old worn out joints that we danced on every day since we were toddlers.
What is Pure Barre?
-It is a full body work out that involves activating your core, arms, legs and seat (bootayyy) and gives you a dancer body without dancing. WHATTT!!???
-A 60 minute encouraging girl power work out with the best music playlists
-Not ballet. Although, you do use a ballet bar for balance when working on your legs & seat!
-If you were to mix pilates, light weight training/sculpting, yoga and ballet together it would be Pure Barre.
-They believe in the “shake zone.” This means that when your body begins to shake a little, your body is changing and getting stronger!
-Where? Newport, Irvine, Huntington, and Mission Viejo. There are also a lot of other studios in cities all around the country so check out if there’s one near you!
What you need:
-Socks (preferably grippy socks.) They can be purchased in store.
-Must wear pants because of the poses. . .you’ll be much more comfortable than in shorts anyways!!
-A smile and body ready to SHAKE & BURN!
-Bring a friend because we’ve discovered it’s soo much easier to get through a new work out with your friend next to you.
**PSA. . .this ^ picture was not edited, a weird shadow from Bree’s arm showed up lol. We like to keep things super raw and natural (besides the filter of course)
