Thursday Training: Pure Barre DVD Review

It's officially been 8 weeks (the day before Eli was born) since I attended a Pure Barre class.  I keep signing up, but I keep canceling because something comes up.  On Tuesday, I decided to finally break out my Pure Barre: Mile High 1 DVD and give it a go.  

I cannot tell you how impressed with this DVD I was.  It was just like attending a Pure Barre class.  My arms and legs were shaking afterwards.  And my legs and booty were so sore the next day!  I promise it works! 
I wanted to share my thoughts with you about the DVD...

Pros:
*It's very similar to a studio Pure Barre class, minus the $20+ per class.
*You're done in less than 40 minutes.
*The instruction is incredible.  Carrie, the instructor and owner, does it with you as opposed to just telling you what to do like most DVDs.
*You can use a chair, your couch (what I did) or a countertop as your bar.

Cons:
*You need a ball for this one.
*It does not include the bicep arm workout, abs in round back or lifting of the seat at the very end of a studio class.

I cannot wait to get a couple more DVDs and rotate through them.  If I can't make the class, I know I can definitely squeeze in a quick DVD workout.

If you've wanted to try Pure Barre, give this DVD a try!

You used your couch as your bar?? How does that work? Are you just talking about holding it for balance? Hummm, maybe i should get a DVD! I cant afford the classes.

Thanks for sharing! I've been wanting to try out a Pure Barre class...but with two small kids, my time is limited. So,a dvd may be the way to go for me!

My friend does this DVD too and loves it!

Would this work for someone who has never been to a real class before or would I be lost?

This sounds great! I get so bored with workout DVD's though. I need more spice in my workout to keep me motivated. I think rotating DVD's would probably help.

I received my Pure Barre teacher certification in Texas. It's an AMAZING workout -- but it's definitely expensive! Since moving, I've registered at mybarre3.com - it's $15 a month and there are a whole bunch of virtual videos! I've definitely literally sweat a bucket with some of those workouts -- and they have 10, 20, 30, 60 minutes to chose from so you can always fit it in your schedule :)
