I have been going to Pure Barre for about two years now, and I have to say I really love it! One of the things I love about my Tapestry Park studio is that there are always fun events and outings like yesterday’s Pure Barre x Jumbo Shrimp pop up!
This event took our workout out of the studio and onto the Jacksonville Jumbo Shrimp’s outfield. It was hot and sweaty, but it felt great to workout before watching our Shrimp play ball. It made for the perfect girls night out!
For those of you who haven’t tried Pure Barre it is a low impact, total body workout that is ballet inspired. I’ll admit I was intimidated the first time I went (I am by no means a dancer), but the staff at Tapestry Park makes you feel so comfortable and walk you through what to expect. It’s always so fun to go workout with such a strong group of women. Each class brings a new challenge, and really gives you that girl power feeling!
I was always guilty of being kind of a cardio whore, and while I felt like I was in shape I had no real muscle definition. Pure Barre has definitely changed my body and my over all strength level (I’ve got mini guns now!). You can literally feel yourself getting stronger with each class, and it’s great feeling stronger ladies!! I still love my cardio, but now I incorporate Pure Barre classes along with my running for muscle toning.
After our workout, we relaxed with some adult beverages that we definitely earned, and enjoyed cheering on our Jumbo Shrimp! We even got to meet Scampi!!!!
It was definitely a successful event with my barre babes & the crustacean nation! Hope to see you at the next pop up!
