About the STUDIO
The Bar Method Honolulu 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 Moiliili, next to the Humane Society and conveniently right off H1. We have a beautiful, spa-like facility with classes every day of the week. There is a small parking lot, metered parking on the street and a parking garage off University Ave (Puck’s Alley). Our staff -- who we consider ‘ohana -- and community are there to support you.

About the Owners
Elaina Olson discovered The Bar Method while living in American Samoa. She ordered a Bar Method DVD and after the first class she was hooked. She then moved to the Bay Area and began working for The Bar Method HQ, learning all she could from the two co-founders before opening her own studio on island. A dancer and athlete growing up, Elaina loves how The Bar Method combines strength training with fun choreography to deliver a fun and effective full body workout. The Bar Method is also inspired and driven by community - not competition - which has created a magical ‘ohana feel at the studio.
Steph Gambetta’s love affair with the The Bar Method began in 2015 when her dear friend encouraged her to join in a class. Growing up an athlete and falling in love with running at a young age, Steph was used to pushing her body, but as she got older she realized her body was craving balance. The Bar Method brought balance, grace, strength, and a fitness community into her life. A lifelong passion for health and wellness and a degree from the Institute of Integrated Nutrition, Stephanie has found the perfect home and loves being able to inspire other to change their lives.
