“Many small businesses in Northern Colorado have shuttered their doors. They were never able to bounce back after the devastation of lost business during the COVID19 pandemic,” says Meghan Gonzales, owner of Pure Barre Fort Collins. “We’ve poured our blood, sweat, and tears into the studio. We consistently paid our employees and took other jobs and loans to keep the studio afloat. We even sold our house this year. We will do what it takes for our Pure Barre community and my own family. Closing is not an option.”

The Barreathon is a community celebration and local businesses have stepped up to sponsor various hours throughout the event, contributing to the success and recovery of Pure Barre Fort Collins.  In the spirit of community collaboration, DJ Seeker will perform during the late-night hours to keep the energy high and to add a vibrant and energetic atmosphere to the event. The 24-hour schedule will consist of consecutive barre classes, each hosted by expert instructors. Participants can sign up for the free classes on the Pure Barre website or mobile app. 

“We hope by being vulnerable and sharing our story, the community will rally for this fantastic opportunity and fun event,” says Gonzales. “The Barreathon is for everyone, from seasoned Pure Barre enthusiasts to newcomers, to experience the benefits of barre workouts while supporting a local business in need.”
