Zooey Deschanel Takes Pure Barre Classes to Get Ready for Her Wedding

Zooey Deschanel Bellies Up to the Barre

Bride-to-be Zooey Deschanel has been dancing it up lately. Seems she likes tripping the light fantastic so much, she's using ballet-inspired workouts to prepare for her wedding.

Sources told the New York Post that the actress has been taking back-to-back classes at Pure Barre in LA. Similar the Bar Method and Physique 57, the workout combines elements of ballet, Pilates, and weight training. The 55-minute classes are said to burn fat as well tone the arms, abs, and help "lift the seat."

Zooey is engaged to the lead singer of Death Cab For Cutie, Ben Gibbard, and their wedding is planned for some time this Fall.

It's nice to know even adorable Zooey has to work out to get in shape for her wedding. Though I have such a big girl crush on her, I may show up at this wedding and try to break it up Graduate-style.

I love Zooey. She is so pretty and cute - loved her in 500 Days of Summer. Always thought she was naturally thin as well. The Pure Barr class sounds fun.

Whoa, Pure Barre looks amazing! I <3 dance workouts so much - I wish there were a studio near me! (In the meantime, I think I need the DVD!)

it sounds so extreme to do back-to-back classes, but then i realized that nearly all of my ballet classes are 1 1/2 hours anyway, so I suppose it isn't that much longer.. dance is my exercise of choice too, I love seeing it get some press.
