As I mentioned in Friday’s post, I am LOVING Pure Barre’s new Tone in 10 series of online workouts.
For $14.95, you have access for a year to six 10 minute online workouts that you can mix and match in order to customize your own Pure Barre workout.
What I love so far:
You can structure the workouts to fit your schedule. If you only have 10 minutes, do one workout. If you have more time, put together a fun combo!
While each workout is only 10 minutes, those 10 minutes are action-packed (in a non-impact way) with lifting, toning and burning.
I am really excited because some of the tougher Pure Barre exercises are featured in these workouts which are not in my other videos. I recall the moves from the Pure Barre class and boy do they burn.
Things I have noted:
There’s less stretching and more working in each 10 minute workout.
Not all of the 10 minute workouts have a warm up. This is important because I need to warm up before I begin. If I jump right into these Pure Barre workouts I get dizzy (I think it was the thighs & seat one the other morning that did it to me).
Not all of the 10 minute workouts have a stretching segment. I make sure to do the Pure Barre stretches I have memorized because it’s important as a cool down and for elongating the muscles.
These Pure Barre workouts are hard! Lisa and I emailed about it this week because we both do other Pure Barre workouts and couldn’t believe how challenging these workouts felt (at least at first). I have never really been sore from Pure Barre, even though it is always challenging yet for some reason, these 10 minute workouts definitely made me work a bit harder and had me feeling it the next day.
It’s only been a week of working with these six 10 minute videos but I really love the variety. I think I needed this slight change and I am happy with the wide collection I now have of Pure Barre workout options from home!

Moving on to the rest of my workouts from the week…
Monday – Pure Barre Tone in 10 workouts & 5 Miles
I started my morning with 2 back-to-back Pure Barre Tone in 10 workouts before heading out for an easy 5 mile run.
- Thighs & Seat
- Thighs & Abs
- Seat & Abs < – after my run. This video had a warm up which I didn’t need after my run but it was still good to do I guess.
Tuesday – Pure Barre Tone in 10 Arms & Seat & 7 Miles
I think I might feel a little sore in my legs from yesterday’s Pure Barre workouts!
I warmed up for my run with a quick 10 minutes of Pure Barre then headed to the treadmill for 4 miles and then 3 miles outside.
1 Mile – warm up (between 6.3 – 6.5)
3 Miles – alternating .50 mile @ 7.0/ .50 mile 7.5 – 8.0
3 Miles – @ 8:46 pace
Wednesday – Pure Barre Tone in 10 Workouts & 5 Miles
Okay, so, these Tone in 10 Workouts are killer! I was definitely sore from Monday and I am actually sweating during these short bursts of workouts.
Today’s Tone in 10 Combo:
- Full Body
- Thighs & Abs
- Back & Abs < – after my 5 mile easy run
Thursday – 8 Miles on the Treadmill
I had to run a little earlier than normal today so my entire run took place inside on the treadmill because I do not like running in the dark.
This was a GREAT run. I made sure to keep the first few miles easy (no faster than 7.0), even when I wanted to speed up, because I have learned that I tend to get a shin splint stiff foot feeling if I push too soon in the opening miles of a treadmill run.
The last 3 miles of this run were the fastest where I spent my time between 7.5 – 8.1.
Friday – Pure Barre Tone in 10 & 30 Minutes Elliptical
I started my morning with 3 Pure Barre workouts and stuck to my elliptical once a week cross training plan.
- Arms & Abs
- Seat & Abs
- Thighs & Seat
- Back & Abs < – after elliptical
Saturday – 14 Miles
Not my favorite long run but can’t really complain about anything in particular. It was 50 degrees!
