About the STUDIO

The Bar Method Ridgewood 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 Ridgewood is open everyday from 5am - 9pm and offers over 60 hour-long classes a week that range from beginner to advanced, along with 45-minute Express classes. Our beautiful studio features two spacious workout rooms, a locker room with showers, towel service and luxury spa products, keyed lockers, retail boutique and childcare. Everything you need to focus on YOU!

About the

Carolyn Loh started her Bar Method journey in 2008 when she took her first class in Summit, NJ. Immediately hooked, she became determined to bring The Bar Method closer to home in Northern NJ. After 25 years as a children’s book illustrator and graphic designer, she made a sharp career change in 2010, co-founding a Bar Method studio in Englewood, NJ. Two years later she opened The Bar Method Ridgewood. Carolyn is known for her fun, challenging classes. “I teach the class I want to take,” she says. “My goal is for my students to leave every class knowing they gave 100%."

Melissa Ferrigno took her first class in 2010 in Englewood. “Until Bar Method, I had never found any sport or workout that I liked enough to stick with,” she recalls. “This was the first workout I’d ever tried that made me want to come back and do it again.” A former hedge fund analyst, Melissa was searching for a new business opportunity that fit her outgoing personality and healthy lifestyle. Just days after her first class, Melissa told her instructor, Carolyn Loh, that she wanted to become part of The Bar Method. In April 2011, Melissa and Carolyn launched The Bar Method Ridgewood.
