Meet Veronica and Marirose Weyand. This sister duo owns the Pure Barre studios in Scottsdale, Phoenix and Chandler. But don’t be fooled by their pretty exteriors. They’ve been teaching Pure Barre for 9 years, and their no-holds-barred barre class will kick your butt – literally! Those small isometric movements add up to a serious burn – and a tighter booty! Here the twosome talks their local fitness faves…

Favorite calorie-burner…
Veronica: Pure Barre is my absolute favorite calorie-burner! It’s the best 55 minutes that hits every muscle in the body! You’ll leave every class feeling longer, leaner and more energized – and it defines the tops of your legs and lifts your seat!

Marirose: Pure Barre! It’s the best workout for a woman’s body and delivers quick, insane results!

Favorite workout wear…
Veronica: I love Lululemon’s Wunder Under tights and sports bras! But I also LOVE Nordstrom’s new line Zella. It has great layering pieces.

Marirose: Love my Lululemon Wunder Unders. However, we just recently started carrying Beyond Yoga and their pants are amazing. Incredible quality!

Favorite fitness instructor…
Veronica: Obviously, my sister is my favorite Pure Barre instructor! But I also have to give a shout-out to my boxing coach, Brendan Joyce, from Irongloves Boxing Gym in Tempe. He’s a no-nonsense kind of guy who pushes me past my limits.

Marirose: Veronica Weyand. She kicks my butt every time I’m in her class. Her energy is contagious!

Favorite healthy restaurant…
Veronica: Elements at the Sanctuary Resort is my new favorite restaurant. My boyfriend surprised me with my birthday dinner on the back patio. We were able to watch the sunset while enjoying a delicious meal. I can’t wait to go back!

Marirose: True Food! They make the most incredible salads! I also love Chop Shop -they have the best juice bar!

Favorite spa treatment…
Veronica: I love to get my nails done by the one and only Rhonda Holt at Tangles Salon on Scottsdale Rd. And my weekly spray tan from Donna at Arizona Airbrush Studio in Old Town – they definitely give me the perfect glow!

Marirose: Getting my hair done by Alayna Card at the Parlour A Salon! She’s the most talented stylist I’ve ever met!
