A recently-opened Polaris gym wants to raise the barre on your fitness this year.

Pure Barre, the largest barre franchise in North America, opened its doors in Columbus on January 9 at 1513 Gemini Place.

The new studio will offer members a low-impact, total-body workout using a ballet barre and small pulsing movements to strengthen and tone. Each Pure Barre class is designed as an intense workout that improves endurance, flexibility, and balance. 

Pure Barre Polaris is owned and operated by Amanda and Nathan Bradish, who both graduated from Ohio State University and have lived in Columbus for almost 10 years.

“Barre is a low impact, high intensity workout that is safe on joints while also toning and strengthening your muscles,” said Amanda. “Any age and fitness level can benefit from barre because of its low impact. I’ve been waiting for Pure Barre to finally come to the Polaris area, so I’m excited to combine my passions and be the one to bring it to the neighborhood.”

To give the Columbus community an opportunity to become familiar with the Pure Barre experience, the studio will celebrate its opening with free classes on Feb. 22-23.

Pure Barre Polaris is open daily. The studio can be reached online at www.purebarre.com or by phone at 614-787-5559.
