Hi there! How was your week? It has been a busy one in the Pure Barre studios! This week we are celebrating Pure Barre Durham's first birthday! It has been a full week of special events, lifting, toning and burning for me. I am so happy I had a hand in planning the fun!
On Monday we started the birthday week with free testers of cold pressed juices from Elements Juice. It's a local juicing company in Durham. They make AMAZING juices Check out their website here.
My favorite juice is the orange one for sure.
On Tuesday our neighbor Panera Bread brought bagels, spreads, pastries and coffee for our PB clients. I loved having the aroma of coffee around the studio. It woke me up the moment I walked into the studio.
On Wednesday we held a plank contest! At the end of every class we challenged those who were interested to hold a plank (with proper form) for as long as possible. All of the times were recorded and the winner received a Lululemon Tank Top!
Some of our plank stars are above and below here. The winning time was 7 minutes and 34 seconds!
On Thursday another one of our lovely neighbors, Juju brought delicious appetizers over for us to enjoy. Juju is a new Asian Tapas Restaurant, and a brother restaurant to Jujube, which is located in Chapel Hill. Both are delicious! Click here to check out Juju's website and menu, and here for Jujube!
We also had a Lululemon Trunk show on Thursday! Sonja (a friend of mine and front desk staff at our studio) is doing a lovely job modeling some of the new retail we have in stock.
Over the weekend we had two final special events. We partnered with MadeWell, a women's clothing store, for a shop night! Everyone who attended enjoyed a discount at the store that evening, and was entered for the door prize of a 5 class pack to our studios (retail value of $105) and a pair of Pure Barre sticky socks to wear for class! We had light appetizers and juices from Elements to sip while we shopped.
The highlight of the week for me was the Pure Barre 100 Club Class we hosted on Saturday afternoon.
We invited the Durham clients who have already reached 100 classes within the year that the studio has been open. Think about it for a second.. over 100 classes, (over 100 hours) in the Pure Barre Durham studio in less than a year! That is some serious dedication!
We invited the 100 clubbers to a private class just for them on Saturday afternoon with the velcro bands! This was the first time most of them had seen or even heard of the velcro bands, so it was pretty exciting!
Exciting in a challenging and slightly painful way..
Here is a picture of some of our 100 clubbers with Marissa after class. All smiles! They were thrilled to try the bands, and felt super special to have a private class just for them. This class was the highlight of my week.. no question about it.
The class and week was a huge success. It was great to have a reason to celebrate, get everyone together, and lift, tone and burn!
Have a great rest of your week! And stay warm!
