I Work Out

Happy Friday! Excited that the weekend is here! A few weeks ago, I started taking Pure Barre, and it's safe to say that I'm obsessed. I've taken barre in the past but never committed to a lot of classes, but as of late, I've desperately been wanting to get my body back into the shape it once was. I love working out with a trainer, but that's not always feasible, so I knew I needed something engaging and instructor-lead. 

I ended up at Pure Barre on a whim last week - one of my gal friends couldn't go walking after work but I wanted to exercise so I thought I would give a class a try. Next thing you know, I'm signing up for the new client month of unlimited classes. I've been 4 times so far this week, and my body hates me so much in the beginning of the class but loves me at the end. I'll be sharing more on my Pure Barre experience in the next month or so, but today, I'm talking about athletic wear.

With Pure Barre, you have to wear leggings, which I honestly prefer over shorts anyway. While it's easy to toss on a t-shirt and call it a day, I always feel so much more confident in my workout when I like my workout wear - I know that sounds materialistic, but I honestly get a self confidence boost when I can see my muscles working and imagine how much better that cute tank or pair of leggings will look after I've stuck with my workout. On that same note, as much as I love Lululemon and the like, I just can't reason with spending over $100 on one pair of leggings when I'm already shelling out a pretty penny on my classes. So - all of the below are less than $50! Shop away.

Hope you enjoy your weekend & have a great Halloween!


  1. I loved pure barre and always let gary know that classes are a great gift!!! Love those workout leggings - they are so fun! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  2. I've been so intrigued by pure barre but haven't tried it out yet. Maybe once I'm out of the boot I'll track down a class!

  3. Love that first sports bra! So fun! I've taken three different kinds of barre classes and I like Barre3 more than Pure Barre. It just seems to me like I get more of a workout from Barre3 and I like that they focus on making sure you're doing it right. Glad to hear you're loving it though! <3, Pamela Sequins & Sea Breezes

  4. Love all of those picks!! I love wearing leggings during the winter to the gym.. Otherwise I just stick to capri length pants. Your leggings are really cool too. Cute workout clothes also help with staying motivated too. Thank you for sharing and I hope that you have a wonderful weekend! :-)

  5. Love how inexpensive all of these options are -- it's so hard to justify spending $100 on workout gear! I haven't tried Pure Barre yet but I really want to!

  8. I wish my gym had Pure Barre, I think it would be so fun! I need to get back in the gym & you're right, you feel so much more motivated to work harder when you like your active wear :)
