About the STUDIO
The Bar Method Hoboken 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.
The Bar Method Hoboken is located in downtown Hoboken and features two workout studios, a spacious lounge area and an elegant locker room. We are open 7 days a week with classes throughout the day. Metered parking and various lots are available in the surrounding area.

About the Owners
Lucia Almeida-Oliveira discovered The Bar Method in 2009 in Summit, NJ while working as a womenswear buyer in NYC. Growing up practicing ballet, poise and grace have always been a part of her life. After each class, she felt empowered, taller, and more focused. She knew that she wanted to share these feelings with others and be part of The Bar Method community. She became an instructor in 2015 before opening up her studio in Hoboken, NJ. When she's not at the studio, you'll find Lucia rocking out at concerts and hanging out with her husband and two dogs, Angus & Troy.
Melissa Opsahl discovered The Bar Method with her sister in Soho in 2010. After just one class, The Bar Method's precise and structured workout had her hooked on an entirely new level. Melissa loves how the classes focus on the largest muscle groups of the body and finds it fascinating how such small movements create great muscle definition. She's lived in Hoboken for years and knew she had to bring this workout to the city. When Melissa isn't at the studio, you'll find her at local restaurants or parks with her dog, Charlie.
