I took a class with my baby sister and loved every minute of it. I work out 4-5 times per week with weight training and spin classes etc. and I have been an athlete all my life. So I love finding new workouts that challenge me. What's so cool about Bar Method is that it really pushes muscle endurance. No matter how in shape you think you are Bar Method pushes that limit and helps you find new levels of sore.
I'm an avid runner who always felt that while running keeps me healthy, it doesn't sculpt my body the way I'd like. Bar Method is my go-to cross-training workout to see results that same day. It challenges me and builds strength in muscles I didn't know I had. The teachers are fantastic too.
I danced when I was younger, and I love pilates now, so The Bar Method was a great fit for me. It is a full body workout in 1 hour. The movements look like they should be so easy, but you soon learn exactly how hard core this workout actually is! And results come quickly. I can feel my body get leaner, longer and stronger with each class!

I enjoy trying out all types of fitness classes as my mind and my body seem to often get bored easily if I find myself doing the same repetitions over and over without changes or progression--this is NOT the case with The Bar Method. When I tried Bar Method for the first time, I craved more and more because I found each class each day was so different even though the principals of the class structure remained the same. The teachers are all incredibly friendly and most importantly, watchful of all of their clients to ensure that proper form and alignment is being observed throughout all of the intervals being performed. I have tried a few different barre-based exercise programs based on affordability at the time, but The Bar Method is by far the best program/method/workout out there. The exercise sequencing pushes me to exhaustion and is followed immediately by blissful stretches to stretch the exact muscles that were just worked--all while focusing on the breath to pull in my abdominals throughout the class and correct posture (something I have not found emphasized elsewhere). I encourage anyone who is looking for something new to add to their workout repertoire to try out The Bar Method. If you are looking for a new body and great workout in an incredible learning atmosphere, you'll be hooked.
If the classes are more than your budget can handle, the DVDs are great supplements that move along with the same class structure just a little bit of a slower pace.

Every instructor is wonderful and each have taught me something new. I've had gym memberships, been to yoga classes and have never, ever, stuck with anything for 30 days straight. The introductory offer is amazing and it got me committed to exercising and in turn I feel so much better and I'm ready to sign up for more! the classes are amazingly FUN, hard, but difficult in a way that makes me stronger, hotter, and really proud of myself. Just show up at least 3 times a week and be ready to feel like a million bucks! Forget new clothes, I want a newly improved body!!

Every second of this class is amazing. Creating that long, lean body from head to toe with a lifted seat. I have been to a million types of classes, and this is by far my favorite! All of the instructors are truly amazing! Sign up for the 1 month unlimited for $100 and go as much as you can and I guarantee you will be hooked.

I've been a serious addict since just before Labor Day 2008. Not only did I shed the 18 post-wedding lbs I managed to gain, but I found muscles I didn't even know I had!! Never in my life have I stayed motivated or been obsessed with any kind of exercise. Bar Method is truly LIFE-CHANGING. It will absolutely transform your body, which I appreciate every day, but it has also done a serious make-over number on my mind and spirit as well!! I just had my 30th b-day this week and no longer fear my 40th & 50th, I look forward to having many more fabulous toned armed, tight tushie'd decades to come. The best one-word description I can think of is INSPIRING. Come get some, you won't regret it.

I was skeptical at first; I've been to yoga, done weights, pilates, etc., and have never felt so good and soar the next day. You are literally shaking trying to hold the positions, feeling the burn trying to do the last sit up. The next day you feel it! The instructors are really nice and patient. The only drawback is that if you are on a tight budget the classes are a little more costly than other types of classes/workouts, but worth it !! They do have ""community"" classes every once in a while, and that is a treat :)
