I LOVE this studio. Barre has always been a bit intimidating to me, and to anyone else who feels that way, I'd say, set those feelings aside and get to Pure Barre Old Town. Such a great workout - athletic, addictive, fast-paced, and always challenging. The instructors are fantastic - they are the reason I walk to a location that's farther from my place than other barre options. They push you, encourage you and ensure you're in the best possible form to benefit from the workout. And it works! I've been a life long fitness and running junkie, but with these classes I've seen real changes in my body, and been able to make progress in my other workouts.
This Xsport is in an extremely convenient location. There is free parking, it is next to a Whole Foods, and right off of Ashland. It operates 24 hours a day so that anyone can work out there. There are HDTV's everywhere, brand new equipment, and several rooms full of different workout equipment. The only con on this gym is that during peak hours it can be extremely difficult to find the machine you want. It is best to go in the morning, early afternoon, or late night in order to have little trouble finding a machine. I generally go around 5PM and by the time I leave it is slammed. Otherwise, the place is very nice.
