Washington is getting a slew of area Pure Barre studios with the recent opening of the company’s first-ever Bethesda location, followed by another in Alexandria next week.

Pure Barre opened in Bethesda on January 20 at 4930 Hampden Lane. Owners Katie Shearin and Marybeth Coleman will open a second location at 429 John Carlyle Street in Alexandria on February 3.

Pure Barre is a national franchise that first came to Washington in spring 2013 with locations in Fairfax and Dupont Circle. The 55-minute workouts involve isometric exercises performed at the barre—think pulsing squats—and on the mat that target the arms, core, and thighs.

The opening of the two studios will bring the number of Pure Barre studios in Washington to five (a Rockville location opened in early January). According to Pure Barre’s website, barre fiends can expect locations in Capitol Hill, McLean, and Reston in the near future.

Pure Barre Bethesda and Alexandria. 4930 Hampden La., Bethesda, 301-642-2864; 429 John Carlyle St., Alexandria, 703-303-8146. First class is $15.
