A new Pure Barre workout studio is scheduled to open on Palmer Square in downtown Princeton this Friday, March 11. The studio is located at 31 Hulfish Street above Mediterra restaurant.
Pure Barre has expanded to more than 275 studios across the United States since it began offering franchises in 2009.
The full-body workout offered in Pure Barre studios is a 55-minute session the company says burns fat, lifts your seat, and tones your thighs, abs and arms using small isometric movements. The Pure Barre technique is low-impact, and works each muscle group to fatigue, then stretches the muscles back out to create long, lean physiques without bulk.
Pure Barre Princeton owner Jacqui Arce-Quinton recently moved to Princeton with her husband. She already was an avid Pure Barre fan, but was looking for a way to fulfill her entrepreneurial aspirations. Her husband, who is originally from Plainsboro, was already commuting to Princeton for work. The pair, college sweethearts who married about a year ago, decided a franchise opportunity was the answer and Princeton was the place.
“Not only did we chose Palmer Square because it’s the heart of town, but we decided to live here too,” Arce-Quinton said. “Princeton has been very welcoming and I’m so excited to share my passion for Pure Barre with the local area.”
In addition to more than 30 class offerings each week, the Palmer Square studio will also carry a line of activewear.
Pure Barre is offering a pre-opening special of 5 weeks unlimited classes for $100. Sign up by 11:59 p.m. Thursday night for the deal.
