About the STUDIO

The Bar Method Oakland - Lakeshore 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 Oakland was opened in May 2013 by studio owners Audrey Mao and Chelsea Glavinovich McClure after the success of their Walnut Creek location. The studio offers two spacious workout rooms, childcare, and a large locker room. Members of the Oakland location are also invited to take class for no additional charge in Walnut Creek. We look forward to joining you in your transformation!

Audrey Mao

About the

Audrey discovered The Bar Method in 2004 while living in San Francisco and immediately knew this was a special offering that people would love. After meeting Chelsea, the two decided to partner up and open a location in the East Bay. After years of growing their team and meeting countless clients, Audrey has found that the most rewarding thing about The Bar Method has been to encompass not just an incredible workout that allows people to feel empowered, but also a strong community where staff and clients feel truly at home and have found friendships that will last a lifetime.

Chelsea Glavinovich McClure

Chelsea Glavinovich McClure discovered The Bar Method in 2003 while trying a competitor's classes. A self proclaimed fitness junkie who "tried it all," she was immediately blown away by the quality of instruction and effectiveness of the workout. Studio ownership has allowed Chelsea to marry her passion for details and boundless energy with her love of fitness, while meeting hundreds of incredible people along the way.
