2. Pure Barre
Barre classes have become increasingly popular for those looking for lean muscles in those hard-to-tone places. Pure Barre is more than a workout: It’s a lifestyle. Disciples constantly shift total-body workouts that feature a ballet barre and small isometric movements; each burns fat and sculpts muscle. Things we love about Pure Barre: setting goals and the cool gear (neon-colored sticky socks!). Multiple locations, including 2130 P St. NW, 202.870.1799
