Owners of a local fitness studio are preparing to welcome the Decatur community to meet them at the barre! From the same successful leadership team behind the Virginia Highland studio, Pure Barre Decatur will make its debut this spring. The new location is the latest and greatest franchise of Pure Barre, the largest, most established network of barre studios in the nation, headquartered in Spartanburg, S.C. 


Pure Barre Decatur is estimated to open on early April and will be located at 415 Church St., Decatur, Ga. 30030, and pre-opening specials are now available. The studio is owned by locals Ashley Goot and Katy Bayless Gibson, who have already established a reputation as an effective option for exercise in the Virginia Highland neighborhood. 


“Ashley and I feel very fortunate to have really connected with the Virginia Highland community, especially our clients, over the past year,” said co-owner, Katy Bayless Gibson. “We are really looking forward to continuing our business in Virginia Highland and bringing our expertise to Decatur. We love that it’s such a vibrant neighborhood with obvious personality and a craving for studios like ours that foster an encouraging, fun environment to get fit.”


The new location is currently running a New Client Pre-Opening Special for a limited time only. This special is $99 for five weeks of unlimited classes and available online now at www.purebarre.com/ga-decatur


The Pure Barre workout has exploded in popularity since its inception in 2001, with over 285 studios across the country currently and even more opening every week. In just 55 minutes, the barre-based workout utilizes small, isometric movements to target areas women struggle with most: hips, thighs, seat, abdominals and arms. Each section of the workout is immediately followed by stretching to create a long, lean and strong physique. The workout is low-impact and designed to work for people of all shapes, sizes and fitness levels. 


For optimal results, Pure Barre encourages clients to take at least three to four classes a week. Generally, members see results in as little as 10 classes! The Pure Barre workout has become more than a fitness craze, it is a lifestyle. Members enjoy being a part of a community that encourages and supports them in reaching personal goals, both inside and outside of the studio. 


Pure Barre Decatur will also be a fashion hub for fitness retail, including popular, long-lasting brands such as ALO, Beyond Yoga, Emi Jay, Knotty, Lily & Laura and BRK. In addition, Pure Barre Decatur will also carry Pure Barre branded Splits 59 apparel, an active line exclusively sold in Pure Barre studios.


Regular class packages range from a single class to six months unlimited, with various in between options. The studio will also offer special packages for both brides and new moms.
