I signed up for the opening introductory offer of 2 weeks free. You could only sign up one day at a time, which made it difficult to get a slot when you wanted it. The exercise class takes place in one room with treadmills, rowers and a small space for strength training. The orange lighting made it difficult to see things well. I didn't like that half the workout was spent on the treadmill with the instructor telling you when to move in and out of heart zones -honestly I can do that on my own. The second half, you transition from the rower to the floor, which was difficult due to trying to slip out of the shoe guards and trying not to bump into the person next to you. The exercises on the floor were displayed on a large screen and there are just too many people in the class for the instructor to really be able to help you with form. I liked the idea of having your heart zone clearly displayed on the large screens, but that was pretty much all I liked. For the monthly price, I would rather join a high end gym and get much more fitness options. Or buy a Garmin and monitor your heart zones.
I have been going to Dora for 4 weeks now and I already see great improvement. It has been over 4 years since my last work out, so I was in bad shape. I got easily winded playing with my children. I have never had a personal trainer before, but am very happy to have been referred to Dora. A good friend said time spent with Dora was life changing for her! She could not have been more correct. After 1 session Dora identified all of areas of weakness. Diet being the big one. I barely survived my first workout. So, before my second work out she sent me a suggested meal plan. She understands we are creatures of habit so she tailored a meal plan to fit my life style. It worked perfectly. The second workout I ate her suggested meal, and made it through the entire session. I can feel myself getting stronger with each workout. Dora is a blessing, and a life changer!!!!!! Happy to have been referred to her.
I have been training with Teddy for 3 weeks only and I have noticed improved posture, and better skin! Teddy is dedicated to her craft and her clients. She is my “Nudge” : emails and texts me to remind me to eat more protein and water. She treats the whole person! We all have different goals and levels of skill and abilities, and she uses her knowledge of medicine and strength training to make each of us strong inside and out. When she met me, she told me, 80% of your problem is diet. So I got more than I bargained for! She is my nutritionist, my strength trainer, my life coach, all wrapped up in one smart, sweet woman!! She earns every penny…never met such a contentious and dedicated expert!!! Had trainers before, but this one, is truly one of a kind!!
I LOVE this studio. Barre has always been a bit intimidating to me, and to anyone else who feels that way, I'd say, set those feelings aside and get to Pure Barre Old Town. Such a great workout - athletic, addictive, fast-paced, and always challenging. The instructors are fantastic - they are the reason I walk to a location that's farther from my place than other barre options. They push you, encourage you and ensure you're in the best possible form to benefit from the workout. And it works! I've been a life long fitness and running junkie, but with these classes I've seen real changes in my body, and been able to make progress in my other workouts.
