About the STUDIO
The Bar Method Pasadena 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 studio is located in the Mills shopping alley between Delacey Ave and Fair Oaks Ave. Our loft-style second floor location is in a charming historic building adjacent to the Edwin Mills restaurant. We are across from the Burke Williams Spa and directly above the Art Gallery. Parking is located a half block in either direction at the Delacey and Schoolhouse parking structures

Liz Gayed is a LA native. An academic at heart, she accelerated through school to earn a Ph.D. in Clinical Psychology at age 22 then spent ten years in clinical practice. Liz discovered The Bar Method in 2004 and was instantly addicted to the deep muscle burn, rapid changes in her body, and the stress relief benefits that the class provided. She began taking class nearly every day, driving to West LA with her best friend Kate for five years before deciding to bring this phenomenal workout to Pasadena. She loves being a part of this positive community focused on health, wellness, and fitness!
Kate Kuo has lived in the Pasadena nearly all her life and there is nowhere else she'd rather call home. After graduating university at the age of 18, she began a ten year career in real estate. She became a Bar Method student in 2004, making the commute from Pasadena to West LA with her best friend (and now Bar Method co-owner) Liz. Never much one for "exercise" in the traditional sense, Kate found an effective workout she actually enjoyed in The Bar Method.
