About the studio
The Bar Method Holmdel 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 Holmdel opened its doors in January 2019. In addition to a beautiful and spacious studio room, we provide a locker room with beauty bar, a coffee and tea station, towel service and a retail boutique for workout apparel and accessories. We are open for business 7 days a week with a variety of classes in the early mornings, afternoons, and evenings.

About the owner
Chrissy Valerio was introduced to The Bar Method in January 2008 when she took her first class. Being a busy mother of two young girls, she was in search of an efficient and effective full body workout. Instantly falling in love with the mindful exercises and the immediate changes she saw in her own body, Chrissy wanted to share this empowerment with everyone she could. Being a lifelong advocate of physical fitness, her passion and love for The Bar Method gave her the motivation to open the doors to the Shrewsbury studio in September 2008. After 10 years, she couldn't be more excited to share The Bar Method with the Holmdel community!
