About the owner
Courtney McCurdy discovered The Bar Method in 2008 while living in San Diego and working in property management. Growing up running competitively, discipline and strength were always a large part of her life. Courtney loves how The Bar Method incorporates interval training and stretching that leaves you stronger, leaner and more flexible. After becoming an instructor in 2010, she opened the Carmel Mountain studio in 2011. Courtney enjoys being part of the fitness community and helping clients achieve their goals. When not in the studio, you’ll find her spending time with her husband and five children.

Your spot in class is not guaranteed until you confirm.
