Lift, tone, burn is the motto for an exten-sion of a fitness craze being brought toBurlingame by Peninsula native AlyssaBothman this weekend.Pure Barre, which targets the hips,thighs, seat, abdominals and arms, com-bines dance techniques and fitness elementsfor a full-body workout concentrating onthe areas women struggle with the most.Clients utilize a ballet barre to performsmall isometric movements. Bothmantaught at Pure Barre in New York, then relo-cated to the Bay Area and brought Pure Barrewith her. “It’s important to take care of the bodyand live a healthy lifestyle,” said Bothman,who is the new studio’s owner and manager.“The workout satisfies me physically and ittargets the right areas all in an hour. You canalways make one hour a day for yourself andyou leave feeling accomplished.”Before teaching, Bothman began as aclient at Pure Barre, more than two years agoin New York City at the same time that shewas pursing professional dance. She saysshe herself participates on barre classes, asa student, seven days a week. Since movingback to California, she has taught in theMarina District in San Francisco, MarinCounty, Palo Alto and Los Altos. “My whole family is here,” she said.“They pulled me back home.”Doing contemporary dancing withAmalgamate Dance Company in New York,Bothman said it was an interesting transi-tion from college into the real world. Shelearned that dance is a short-lived career.“Dance wore me out,” she said. “It waspartly New York and partly that dancing is alot about who you know and I didn’t havemuch of a network in New York. It was diffi-cult to navigate and it took a toll on me. Ididn’t have anybody to lean on.”Bothman said she feels like she is exactlywhere she is supposed to be now though andis happy with the positive environmentshe’s found at Pure Barre.Bothman, who graduated from Santa ClaraUniversity in 2011 with degrees in financeand dance, is from Los Gatos. “I’ve always wanted to use that businesssense and creative side to me,” saidBothman, who lives in San Francisco.She also plans to teach at the studio aswell since she enjoys it so much.“What I love about teaching is theclients,” she said. “The workout suits alltypes of people. I taught a class with an 18-year-old and a 70-year-old. Clients seeresults after 10 classes and it’s amazing tosee the transformation.”The classes are community builders andshe feels very much part of the lives of herclients, Bothman said. “The best compliment is a client saying itwas the best hour of their day,” she said.Pure Barre, which first started in the base-ment of an office building in Birmingham,Mich. in 2001, became a franchise in 2009and has four studios in California.Burlingame will be the fifth when it opensthis coming Saturday.There are six all-new instructors, includ-ing Bothman’s older sister Ashton, at thestudio, plus Bothman. The Burlingamespace is about 2,200 square feet total, withthe studio taking up about 1,000 square feet.The location on Chapin Avenue is idealsince it is close enough to downtown forconvenience, but also a bit hidden andincludes a parking garage at the back,Bothman said. The studio is located at 1440 Chapin Ave.,Suite 100. To sign up for an introductorypre-opening deal of five weeks of classes for$100 visit purebarre.com/ca-burlingame.There is also limited space for free classeson Saturday, the studio’s opening day.
