About the STUDIO
The Bar Method Phoenix - Arcadia 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.
Arizona’s first Bar Method studio is located in Phoenix’s Arcadia Towne Center at 4730 East Indian School Road, Suite 207A. The beautiful 4,150 sq. foot facility opened in December 2016, and is the first studio for owner Elissa Scannell. In addition to a fully stocked locker room with private showers, The Bar Method Phoenix-Arcadia has a kids’ room with childcare available during select classes.

Elissa Scannell started her Bar Method journey as a client of the Washington, DC studio in 2013. Seeking a way to get back in shape after years working in politics and sitting in front of a computer, she was instantly hooked. She began teaching at the DC studio in 2014. A year later, when she decided it was time to rejoin her family in Arizona, she knew she had to bring The Bar Method with her. She loves helping people find the grace and strength she found in herself through The Bar Method. Elissa lives in Phoenix with her husband, who is also an instructor, and their two dogs, Lucy and Skylar.
