Pure Barre is on a mission to transform the abs, buns, and thighs of MetroWest, with a Brookline studio now open in Coolidge Corner, co-owned by Lauren Marett-Sherman of Pure Barre Boston and Rachel Roberts of Pure Barre Newton and Wellesley. The new space at 1333 Beacon Street resembles that of a typical studio from the brand, with mirrored walls, carpeted floor, and of course, a barre around the perimeter. The 55-minute long classes use isometric movements to create long, lean muscles—and as a new client special, beginners can enjoy one month of unlimited classes for just $100. Should you want to get decked out in official PB gear, a retail display lives in the lobby.
