Have you been dying to watch your boyfriend, best guy friend, or father put on some spandex and sweat it out at a Pure Barre class? Well then, now's your chance. The Union Square studio will be offering a special $40 "couples rate" on Sunday at 1:30pm. Their email asks: "Do you think the men in your life can handle Pure Barre? Bring your sweeties and guy friends to see if they can keep up with lifting, toning and burning."
Just make sure you explain ahead of time that Pure Barre's use of the word "tuck"—the signature move of lining your shoulders with your hips and tilting your hips back ever so slightly—isn't what they think it means. Sign up below.
