The Bar Method™ Craze Uses a Ballet Bar to Reshape the Body
The Bar Method™ began in 2004 with three studios. By 2007, five more opened. Now, twenty-one facilities around the country are open or under construction with eleven more in planning stages. On November 15, 2008, The Bar Method™ San Diego joins other franchisees in Chicago, San Franciscos Bay Area, New Jersey, Los Angeles, New York, Texas, and Colorado.
Unlike aerobics and cross-training techniques of former decades, The Bar Method™ goes beyond offering a healthy heart, greater flexibility, and a stronger core by combining the muscle-shaping principles of isometrics, the body-elongating practice of dance conditioning, the science of physical therapy and the intense pace of interval training into a powerful exercise format that quickly and safely slims and elongates muscles. The Bar Method™ actually reshapes the entire body by creating carved muscles, lifted seats, flatter abs, highly defined arms, and long, lean thighs muscles.
The Bar Method™ has become a significant and growing player both at local and national level. The New York Times Style Section wrote, Bar Butt has entered the local dialect, EXTRA called it The best of the best when it comes to star workouts , The San Francisco Chronicle wrote, The Bar is the new Pilates, and Glamour Magazine dubbed it, The Hollywood exercise trend of the moment.† People Magazines 2008 cover article on Drew Barrymores new body explained, Barrymore has become a devout follower of the ballet-influenced Bar Method that helped her shed almost fifteen pounds. Other celebrities who have attended classes include Eve, Tori Spelling, Alicia Silverstone, the Olsen twins, Kyra Sedgwick, Julia Ormond, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus.
