About the STUDIO
The Bar Method Richmond 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.
We are located at the corner of Three Chopt Road and Patterson Ave in The Village Shopping Center next door to Toast and Escape Nail Salon. The Bar Method Richmond is a 4,000 sq ft high end barre fitness studio and athleisure boutique. We offer a private retail dressing room, complementary coffee and tea in our lounge area, a full locker room with private lockers, and on site childcare.

Nikki Davis’ barre journey started at age four at the ballet barre. Growing up dancing for almost 20 years, Nikki's passion for fitness and healthy living continued well into adulthood. After attending the University of Maryland and having her son she began teaching barre classes and found a passion for this form of fitness. She wanted to find something that was truly well developed; barre that was safe and sustainable for clients at ANY fitness level. After researching options she found The Bar Method and was immediately hooked. The combination of strength moves, stretching and overall attention to detail is unparalleled. She's excited to bring The Bar Method to Richmond!
