Pure Barre University Reopens today in U-District

Sami Sweeney, owner of Pure Barre fitness studios in Bellevue, Capitol Hill, Green Lake, Queen Anne and Redmond is reopening her first Seattle Pure Barre location today at a new location in Seattle’s University District. Pure Barre will open at 4552 11th Avenue N.E., Seattle, 98105, in the Bridges@11th apartment building with a regular class schedule starting today.

There will be an opening event on Saturday, April 23 from 8:00 am to 3:00 pm with snacks, refreshments and retail specials for new and current students to enjoy. Purchase new client special rate of $99 for 5 weeks of unlimited classes.


The new location will feature 1600 square feet of space for multiple daily classes with a capacity for 25 students per class. Students’ first class is complimentary, and free parking is available in the underground garage.

Pure Barre is a total body workout proven to target trouble areas. It works to lift the seat, tone thighs, abs, arms and burn fat in record-breaking time by fusing elements of ballet, Pilates and weights in a 55-minute intense session. Small isometric movements set to upbeat music make Pure Barre the fastest, most effective, yet safest way to change the body. Pure Barre’s workout is accessible for all ages and fitness levels because of its low impact, high results formula and students see results in just 10 classes.

“Since first opening in Seattle’s University District we have seen this neighborhood grow by leaps and bounds. We are thrilled to be reopening in a new building with a top-of-the-line studio for our loyal students and excited to welcome newcomers!” said Sweeney. “From students, new moms and brides, to men and those recovering from injuries, everyone can reap the benefits of this low-impact, full body workout with proven results.”

About Pure Barre

Sweeney opened Pure Barre in Seattle in June 2010, and was the first to bring the barre-based workouts to the city. In December 2010 she expanded to Bellevue, opened Queen Anne in September 2012, Capitol Hill in January 2014, Green Lake in September 2014 and Redmond in October 2014. With the dozens of weight loss success stories Pure Barre has helped locals achieve, it’s the perfect workout to get locals motivated and in shape for good.

Sweeney, a Pure Barre master teacher trainer for the Southern Central region of the United States, opened the first Washington-based Pure Barre in 2010 after wanting to bring the revolutionary technique to her Northwest roots. Pure Barre was created by dancer, choreographer and fitness guru, Carrie Dorr in 2001, when she opened her first studio in Michigan.

Pure Barre University is located at 4552 11th Avenue N.E., Seattle, WA 98105. For class schedules and packages visit purebarre.com/wa-seattle.
