Pure Barre Wellington held its grand opening Friday, Sept. 26, and owner Melissa Hirsch called the event a huge success.
Pure Barre Wellington is located at 11924 W. Forest Hill Blvd., Suite 22, in the Town Square shopping center. The store conducted raffles and promotions, and gave away prizes. Those visiting had lots of fun.
The event also gave clients a chance to socialize even more with teachers and other clients. A ribbon-cutting ceremony took place before the grand opening party, with Wellington Chamber of Commerce ambassadors and board members welcoming Hirsch and her business to the chamber.
According to Hirsch, Pure Barre is the fastest and most effective way to change the body, with some participants seeing results in as little as 10 classes. Pure Barre consists of a full body workout, combining the elements of Pilates and ballet.
The method, part of which was developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates, utilizes small isometric movements at the ballet barre, working the muscles to fatigue and immediately stretching them back out.
Pure Barre is great for strengthening and lengthening. The technique is also low impact; there is no jumping or bouncing, so it is safe and easy on the joints.
Hirsch has additional studios in West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens and Jupiter. When someone joins, as a member of one studio, he or she is a member of all four studios.
