Located just a stone’s throw away from the Coolidge Corner T-stop, green line regulars know that PureBarre Brookline is a gem for those looking for a good sweat outside of the city limits.

RUNDOWN

WORKOUT

This class was like an all-out barre Bootcamp in the best way possible. Be ready to move. Fast. And be ready to tuck. A whole lot.

For those that love barre, you’ll get a little bit of everything in this class. The arm routines are killer – we loved the combo of resistance bands + hand weights for the added burn. Don’t think you can go putting the resistance band too far out of reach after arms though, it was later used around our legs to challenge our core, thigh & hip strength. Pure Barre sure gets props for loving its props!

INSTRUCTOR

Lindsay flat out tuck-ered us out. We can’t remember the last class that we did quite that many tucks. We loved the fast-paced nature of her class. With quick transitions back-and-forth between the barre and mat, you’d think it would be hard to keep up at times, but not with Lindsay at the helm. She delivered well-timed instructions that kept our packed class one step ahead at all times.

Lindsay was tough, but she was equally upbeat & technical with her instructions and demonstrations. While Lindsay wasn’t as hands-on with corrections as some other instructors, the class was packed and she definitely did her best to make her rounds. If you’re looking for a challenge and a great burn, Lindsay won’t let you down.

SPACE

With natural sunlight flowing in from the floor to ceiling windows of the street-level studio, it’s hard not to feel a warm welcome. The front end of the Pure Barre space offers seating and cubbies to store your belongings. Both are limited in space, which makes it a little cumbersome in the winter with coats and boots. Luckily spring is almost here, so that’s a non-issue. Perhaps the limited seating is a marketing ploy to encourage you to shop their ample wall of apparel – it almost worked on us.

Before entering the studio room, we passed by the barres of fame (Ok, it’s not really called that, but you get the idea). For those that hit their 100th, 250th or even 500th class, their signature makes in onto the barre for the respective milestone club — and rightfully so! While the actual studio unfortunately doesn’t have windows, it made up for it with 360 degrees worth of mirrors so you can always keep an eye on form, and chic chandelier decor.
