About the STUDIO

The Bar Method Chicago - Gold Coast 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 the Gold Coast neighborhood at State and Delaware, close to shopping, restaurants and universities. There is plentiful metered street parking nearby in addition to many public parking garages. The Red Line is just two blocks south at Chicago Ave.
