Pure Barre Destin is owned and operated by local Ashley Singleton, who also owns the Pure Barre studio in Santa Rosa Beach at the WaterColor Crossing shopping center. A graduate of University of Kentucky, Singleton earned a degree in Corporate Communications and Business. While living in Lexington, she was introduced to Pure Barre and was instantly hooked. A loyal visitor to the Santa Rosa Beach area since the age of seven, Singleton moved to the area shortly after college to study with a practitioner of Traditional Chinese Medicine to further explore the field of alternative medicine and living. In August of 2010, Singleton introduced the area to Pure Barre by opening the WaterColor location. After tremendous success in the 30A area, Singleton decided to expand into the heart of Destin.

The new Pure Barre location in Destin is located across from the Destin Commons in the Best Buy shopping center. Classes take place seven days a week, a various times throughout the day from early morning, lunch and evening. All classes are the same level as the technique was designed to work for people at all levels of fitness. The positions and movements are basic. It's how deep clients work that makes the difference. All Pure Barre classes consistently change music and move to keep each class fresh and exciting.
