About the studio

The Bar Method Bethesda is a boutique fitness studio offering barre classes for students of all levels. The signature method uses your own body weight, the ballet barre and a few props to create a transformative workout that results in long, lean sculpted muscles. Not only does it reshape your entire body, but it allows you to channel your inner strength and leave class feeling strong, confident and poised. Highly-trained instructors customize the exercises to ensure they are safe and effective for any age and every body, including modifications for pregnant women and students with injuries. Our staff and community are here to support you from the moment you walk through the door.

We are located in the heart of Bethesda - close to the Bethesda metro. Our studio features a gorgeous workout space and a locker room with toiletries. We are open 7 days a week. There is a Montgomery County parking garage on our block with $1 per hour parking, and free on weekends!

About the owner

Kate Arnold, owner of The Bar Method DC, Bethesda, and North Potomac, is a graduate of Duke Law School and The University of Chicago Booth School of Business. Kate discovered The Bar Method while living in Chicago and fell in love with it instantly. The Bar Method changed her outlook on health and fitness in addition to transforming her body. An immediate “addict” of The Bar Method, Kate opened the DC studio in 2011, because she couldn’t imagine living in a city where The Bar Method didn’t exist, and opened the Bethesda location in 2013.
