The bar method in West Vancouver has been open for one year and is located at 1760 Marine Drive. It is the second bar method in Canada (other location is 837 Beatty) and this form of exercise has already swept across the US and is gaining momentum in Canada.
However, with no advertising how in its first year does the West Vancouver location already have 500+ members? Simple...because it works and no form of advertising is as strong as word-of-mouth.
Studio Manager Danielle Dembicki and Instructor/Events Coordinator Emily Goodrich informed me that the bar method is a one hour class which has the same consistent flow each time. It is a "total body workout that combines isometrics, interval training, dance conditioning and sports rehabilitation to quickly and safely burn fat and carve muscle."
The class is high intensity with no impact, goes from head to toe with specific stretches in between each exercise that will work muscles to total exhaustion.
The bar method is for all fitness levels (beginner to high level athletes) as well as it is great for pregnant women. Besides better overall health, you will notice after only a month of consistent classes a more toned physique, reduced body fat, flatter abs, improved posture, increased stamina, a lifted seat and defined hamstrings.
The age range of this studio is anywhere from 13 to 70 years old, however, the main core of members are females in the 35-45 range. Variety is the spice of life and I am going to attend a class next week and will look to incorporate it into my weekly fitness program. I encourage you to attend a class and perhaps go with a friend...Emily and Danielle will take great care of you!
