New and Emerging Business of the Year: Pure Barre
Pure Barre opened its doors in the Old Mill District in June 2014. The Bend studio, owned by local resident Erin Anderson, was the first studio of its kind to open in the state of Oregon. Anderson was passionate about the Purre Barre workout and her results and wanted nothing more than to inspire the community of Bend and share her love with everyone.
Pure Barre is a total body workout that utilizes the ballet barre to perform small, isometric movements.
“The first nine months of business have been filled with getting to know the amazing people in Central Oregon, partnering with local businesses and organizations and learning more about who our clients are and what they love most about Pure Barre,” the nomination form states. “We realize the community we live, work and play in is dedicated to a healthy life – and we are proud to contribute to this way of living.”
