What got you started in this business?
I took my first Pure Barre class in Nashville and fell in love with the challenge of the workout, the welcoming atmosphere, and the results I began to see after just a couple of weeks. Pure Barre provided everything I had been looking for in a workout and I wanted to share that with other women. It’s such a unique workout and really targets all the right places!
When did you open the business?
We opened our first location in Germantown in 2010, our Memphis location in 2011 and just opened the Collierville location this past September. We started our first classes on September 22nd and had our Collierville Chamber of Commerce Ribbon Cutting on October 6th.
Tell us about your customers! Why do they come to you?
Pure Barre is the fastest, most effective way to transform your body and create long lean muscle. We have a wide variety in clientele because anyone can do it! It is low impact and our teachers are very hands-on to make sure you perform each exercise correctly to get the most out of your workout. Pure Barre creates an opportunity for women to escape their daily lives and have an hour to focus on themselves. A feeling of community develops within each studio, and many clients have become close friends!
What makes our town special to you and why is it a great place for your business?
I love the community of Collierville and the small town feel even though it has grown so much! The clients are loyal and supportive and you feel like everyone really wants to help you succeed. The biggest reward for me with Pure Barre is seeing it change each woman's confidence. I am excited to share that with our clients in Collierville!
Tell us about your story! Family, interests and hobbies:
I was born and raised in Memphis and love our city! I attended UT on a cheerleading scholarship and received my degree in Sports Management. I lived in Nashville for several years after graduating and that's where I discovered Pure Barre. I’ve been married to my high school sweetheart for 8 years and we have the most amazing 20 month old little boy Landon. I love spending time with my family and friends and I’m trying to soak up every second with Landon because it does go by so fast! I am a huge Tigers fan so you can frequently find me at basketball games. I’ve recently developed a passion for cooking and enjoy finding new healthy recipes to try.
What can participants expect in a Pure Barre class?
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!
The concentration involved while taking Pure Barre allows you to block "life" out for the hour, creating the mental benefits similarly obtained by the practice of yoga or meditation. A transformed body and a clear head in just one hour—it doesn't get much better than this!
