Now that Pure Barre is sculpting Downtowners, the Racked Fit Club-faved studio is raising the barre (sorry) for Valley fitness fiends. The ballet-inspired workout chain is bringing its 55-minute lifting and toning seshes to North Hollywood's Arts District this Friday, July 31st, making it PB's second SFV outpost.
In addition to offering the PB's signature head-to-toe workouts, the 1,250-square-foot space features a custom-built reclaimed wood and steel front desk, a retail wall featuring activewear from Splits 59, Alo Yoga, Barresocks, and Pure Barre, and Penta water. If you've yet to try the sweat sanctuary's bikini body-making classes—which feature "tiny isometric movements" that target arms, hips, thighs, abs, and tushes—the NoHo studio is offering a pre-opening special of unlimited classes for five weeks ($100); score it here and scope out the class sched here.
