Pure Barre Charlotte: Casie Petty

Tell us a little bit about Pure Barre Charlotte.

We first opened almost eight years ago in Myers Park! We are a 50 minute workout focusing on toning and lengthening the muscles. We also just started a new 50 minute cardio class called Empower.IMG_8478

Many first-timers are scared of barre classes. What should a first-timer expect at Pure Barre Charlotte and what would you tell them to calm any first time nerves?

Just to have fun! Don’t take your first class to seriously. Every client is in there to get a good workout and to support each other. Just relax and the teachers guide you though the rest.

What makes Pure Barre Charlotte different from other workout classes?

We encourage you to do what you can! We never want to push anyone to hard so that they have a bad experience. We want to create a comfortable environment and support system for the clients to only grow stronger.

Your studio feels like coming home once you start coming. Tell us how you all make this happen.

We care about the clients well-being mentally and physically so I think that puts people at ease. Also, since we’ve been around for 8 years, we’ve created a special community of friends.

Your instructors are top notch. How do you think their training, focus, & energy contributes to client’s overall experience and results?

First of all, they love what they do and they love the clients! I think once you have that everything falls in place.

What exciting things are in store for Pure Barre Charlotte in 2018 and how are you helping clients crush their 2018 fitness goals?

Our cardio class (Empower) is only getting stronger and better, and there will be a new class released in late 2018! The clients should look for some new and fun challenges ahead as well as some fun client bonding events.

What’s your favorite workout gear?

I love any type of high waisted workout pant. The 7/8 length are my favorite! Throw on a sweatshirt and cute scarf and then you are ready to go after PB!

Favorite way to unwind?

At night once the kids are to bed, I pour a glass of wine and turn on The Crown.

Favorite song and/or artist to on your PB playlist?

My go to is always Pitbull!
