About the studio
The Bar Method Madison 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.
Our loft-like studio is set in one of Madison's award-winning buildings with ample free parking. The studio's front desk and teaching team are the proud recipients of Madison's 2015, 2016 and 2017 people's choice "Extra Mile" award for exemplary customer service and 2018 Distinguished Service Award. We warmly welcome all fitness levels (ages 13+) to join the fun.

About the owner
Not unlike many of her clients, The Bar Method changed Gina Striffler's life for the better. After 14 yrs in a high-travel corporate job, Gina left to strike a better balance for her career and family. In doing so, she opened the doors to a studio that is known for contagious positivity, exceptional client service, limitless community outreach and devoted clients who she and her reputable staff go the extra mile for each day. More than any other aspect of the business, Gina loves to teach the classes! It is a privilege for her to witness physical and emotional transformations right before her eyes. To Gina, it is not a job...it is a calling, one that spans far beyond just an exercise class.
