Lift, tone, burn. That familiar motto has taken the exercise world by storm, similar to an epidemic that just cannot be contained. Pure Barre is not only one of the most popular ways to tone down, but, it takes its fans and followers one step forward to embrace their way of life. The classes are always intense, every muscle in the body is pushed to its furthest extreme, and yet, you finish each workout in a state of euphoria.
Plenty has been happening at ‘The Barre’ during the month of August. As more Pure Barre studios open across the nation, and make their way into Canada, competition between studios has become even fiercer and things are really heating up. Now is the time to head to the nearest Pure Barre studio to try out the toning and to participate in the 2nd Annual Pure Give Challenge. Each studio accepts the challenge and raises funding for the charity that they feel most passionate about. From August 3 through August 31, 2015, the Giving Campaign has created an even greater reason to head ‘To the Barre.’ The fundraising is currently underway and heading into the home stretch.
In one of the locations in the South, in Boynton Beach, Florida, the Pure Barre studio welcomes new students, intermediates and advanced and invites them to step into a totally different lifestyle where feeling and looking your very best is a number one priority. The staff of Pure Barre Boynton Beach is inspiring its members to not only stretch and tone, but, to give whatever amount is coming from the heart, to NEDA (National Eating Disorders Association). Just in the United States alone, 20 million women and 10 million men suffer from a clinically significant eating disorder at some time in their life, including anorexia nervosa, bulimia nervosa, binge eating disorder, or an eating disorder not otherwise specified. The scope and severity of eating disorders are often misunderstood. Eating disorders are serious illnesses, not lifestyle choices. It has been proven that anorexia has the highest mortality rate of any mental illness. In a national survey, four out of ten people reported that they either suffered or have known someone who has suffered from an eating disorder. There is a significant lack of funding to combat eating disorders and their devastating consequences. As a result, too many individuals and families are left feeling helpless, hopeless and frightened.With increased awareness. these serious illnesses can be tackled and early intervention and improved access to treatment is readily available. NEDA provides programs and services to give families the support they need to find answers for these life-threatening illnesses.
Wherever you may travel to, whatever section of the nation that you call home, you are sure to find a Pure Barre location nearby. At a time of the year when giving and getting is the most important, right up there with tone and burn, make your exercise routine meaningful for the month of August.
