How to Boost Your Results at The Bar Method

November 12, 2019

If you’ve found yourself here, you likely know some of the main benefits you can expect from The Bar Method classes: lean muscles, increased flexibility, better posture, greater body awareness (just to name a few). In addition to staying consistent with your exercise routine and taking class 3-5 times a week, what else can you do to boost these benefits? We believe that small changes can have a big impact, just like the small movements you see in our signature technique! Keep reading for a few small changes you can make to boost your results at The Bar Method.

Try a New Class Format

At The Bar Method, most studios offer 5 class formats, each with its own unique benefits. In Bar Method class, you will follow our classic interval format of strength followed by stretch, resulting in long, lean muscles. Experience a more intense strength training workout in our Bar Strength classes which will result in a deeper mind-body connection. If you are looking for a fast-paced class that will spike your heart rate, then sign up for a Bar Method Cardio Class. Bar Flow classes will also get you sweaty by dynamically stretching the body in flows that are paired with strength exercises. In Bar Restore, you will push yourself in barre work. This is followed by some deep floor stretching that will help to help to relax the body and calm the mind. Challenge yourself by trying out a new class offering or two to truly feel the unique benefits of what barre has to offer!

Raise Your Hand

Our Bar Method Instructors are expert, educated, magical unicorns! Every Bar Method Instructor goes through over 6 months of training, focusing on body anatomy, exercise safety, and more! Use our Instructors as a tool to get the results you are looking for! Do you have questions on a specific exercise? Pull your Instructor aside after class and share your question. Nothing makes our Teachers happier than seeing their students succeed, so don’t be shy & start to feed off their knowledge as much as you can.

Recovery= Results

There is a stigma in the fitness industry that you need to do more to get results- more workouts, more cardio, more dieting. Let us tell you, this is not the case. In order to achieve results, you must let your body rest & recover. Listen to your body and give it the rest and recovery it needs. Think about what changes you can make to get adequate sleep the night before you take class. Simple changes such as unplugging from your phone 30 minutes early, starting your family’s winding down routine earlier, or having a cup of chamomile tea before bed can make a big impact on your sleep.

Take the Challenge

Ask any seasoned client who has been with us for 5+ years and they will all agree on one thing…The Bar Method never gets easier. In our studio room, there is no such thing as perfection. We are constantly challenged in our path to mastery, especially when our instructors provide us with a challenge in class. Just when you think you can’t get through one more “little up and little down” your instructor challenges your mind and body to raise your arm in diamond thigh. Taking these challenges will not only strengthen your mind and body, but boost all of the results you are seeking during your time with us.

Like we preach in class, small movements make a BIG impact. Are you ready to make a few of these small changes to boost your results? Get started and sign up for your next class here.
