Raising the Barre

Pure Barre is Celebrating 4 Years! To say "Thank You" to their community, Pure Barre is offering the best package deal ever! A "Forever Rate" of $135 billed monthly via automatic draft. This is a fantastic deal and only available for a limited amount of time.


Local Owner, Physical Therapist & Fitness Expert, Ami Seier brought Pure Barre to the area 4 years ago. With fitness as her passion, Ami searched for years to discover what she thought would be the best possible fitness program to bring home to the Triangle to help women improve their lives and found the answer in Pure Barre. A safe and effective, 55 minute class targeting arms, hips, seat, thighs, and abs. The entire class is non-jarring on the joints making it ideal for cross training or a daily exercise regimen.


For the past four years, Ami has enjoyed fulfilling her dream and seeing the way Pure Barre has created a community of support for women as a way to transform their lives and bodies from women just starting an active lifestyle to athletes looking for ways to improve strength and performance while providing a mind-body connection through well deserved time to recharge your mind away from the rigors of daily life.


Pure Barre continues to bring a great workout to the area through intensively trained teachers. All Pure Barre teachers have strong fitness backgrounds and with a combined love of exercise and clients benefit from the energy and passion the team brings.


Pure Barre would like to say Thank you for a wonderful four years and the team looks forward to seeing you at Pure Barre - Raleigh/North Hills, Cary/Park West Village or North Raleigh/Falls Pointe.

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
