Whole Foods Market in Palm Desert will be hosting a FREE fitness event featuring Pure Barre on Sunday, May 21st, 2017. Participants can shape up with this effective and popular exercise trend just in time for summer swimsuit season!

Fitness and Whole Foods Market go hand in hand. As the specialty market focuses on healthy food options, highlighting exercise seems natural. The relationship between Whole Foods Market and Pure Barre came from the desire to bring the community together in the name of health and wellness.

Whole Foods Market Palm Deserts Metro Marketing Field Team Leader, Christy Jeziorski, set out to search for a fitness studio to partner up with, which led her to Pure Barre in Palm Desert. “There are so many amazing spots out here, but when I came across Pure Barre, the relationship bloomed naturally,” said Jeziorski. The positive energy from Pure Barre owner, Nancy Meisler and managing instructor, Kylie Kolz, sealed the partnership. With other Whole Foods Markets embracing Pop-Up events with Pure Barre studios, Jeziorski knew that she was on the right track.


Pure Barre is a growing exercise trend. The technique incorporates the use of a ballet bar, to perform small isometric movements and hones in on key parts of the body. The results are said to be quick, the impact low and is formulated for all fitness levels.

The Whole Foods Market Pure Barre fitness event will take place at the store’s fabulous patio space. There are two classes offered, one at 8:30am and the other at 9:45am. The event will have energizing music to work out to and giveaways. As an added bonus, Pure Barre will be offering introductory membership specials to attendees who wish to continue their Pure Barre experience.

Participants are asked to bring a yoga mat, a work-out towel, sticky shoes and good energy. As space for the classes are limited, those interested are asked to sign up in advance. With summer just around the corner, trying out a new form of exercise at the Whole Foods Market Pure Barre fitness event is a great way to start to shape up!
