For that barre loving friend or family member in your life, there’s no better gift than a Bar Method class pack. Barre is truly the gift that keeps on giving. Bar Method junkies, barre newbies and fitness lovers alike will love the gift of barre. You can find your local studio and contact them about gifting a class pack or purchasing a gift card for classes. Trust us, if they aren’t already, they’ll be OBSESSED and have you to thank! Win/win.

For the Busy Bee

That person that’s always on the go? We all know them and love them. For the busy barre bee in your life, we have the perfect fitness gift idea. A Bar Online subscription is the workout that can keep up with them, wherever life takes them next. Whether they (or you!) travel, prefer to workout at home, or are unable to join a studio, a Bar Online subscription is the solution. You can gift up to three months to a year at various price points or even an annual membership. Help that pal on the go take barre with them wherever they go.

Give the Gift of Equipment:

For that friend or family member that just prefers to stay at home to get their barre workout in, make sure they’re equipped with all the right gear! Help bring the barre studio to them with some of our amazing at-home barre accessories. From sliders to dumbbells, you can help create the barre in-studio experience right at home! While there’s nothing quite like being in a Bar Method studio, we get that you may not always be close to one.

  • Workout Ball: Our workout ball is used to zero in on areas like your inner thighs and seat, as well as our famous “pretzel with ball” exercise. It’s used in many barre classes, and it comes in white and black!
  • Freestanding Home Exercise Barre:  This portable and storable at home fitness barre is perfect for doing your favorite Bar Method exercises right from the comfort of your very own home.

Give the Gift of Beauty: 

For the Beauty Product Connoisseur

We all want to look our best both in and out of the studio. Not to mention, everyone deserves a moment or two of self-care no matter the time of year.

These are the perfect stocking stuffer and everyday essentials you don’t want your friends and family to miss out on.

For the Workout Warrior

A big part of anyone’s fitness journey is the discovery of supplements, but they’re not always easy on the wallet. An important part of barre recovery is fueling your body with the proper nutrients so you can keep showing up as your best barre self.

From protein powder to electrolyte powder, you can help fuel the fitness junkie in your life. You can check out all of our different fitness recovery products here.

If we can help you find the perfect gift idea for your barre friends and family and take some of the stress out of gift giving, then it’s a win for us! If you’re in need of any additional barre gifting ideas, talk to the front desk person at your local studio. They’ll have the 411 on all things retail and have some more suggestions based on sizing specifics, their personal favorites, and what other members in the studio are constantly reaching for.

No matter what, you can’t go wrong with giving the gift of a Bar Method class pack or Bar Online subscription. Plus, who doesn’t love the boost of confidence you get when heading to a barre class in a new workout fit? We hope this gift guide gave you all the inspo to give the best gifts this season and every occasion after.
