About Our Northfield Barre Studio

The Bar Method Northfield 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 barre 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.

Voted Best Workout for all Barre Studios! The Bar Method Northfield is located in the heart of The North Shore. Whether you are an experienced barre star or brand new to barre workouts, we look forward to welcoming you to our barre classes!

About the owner

Catherine James introduced barre fitness to Chicago (from San Francisco) in 2008 and has been transforming bodies and minds ever since. Within her role at Bar Method, she has trained hundreds of barre teachers across the United States, and at the five barre studios in Chicago that she has owned. She is most connected with the method when teaching others, something she’s been doing every day since 2002. She is thrilled to open a new barre studio in her home community where she is raising her son. A native of university town Oxford, Ohio, Catherine earned her B.S. from Vanderbilt University and M.S.W. from Tulane University.
