About the STUDIO

The Bar Method San Francisco - Downtown 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 San Francisco - Downtown is located in the heart of the financial district and features two workout studios, a spacious lobby, back lounge area, and fully stocked women's and men's locker rooms. We are open 7 days a week with classes throughout the day. We validate parking in the Embarcadero Center garage.

About the

Hannah Goetz fell in love with The Bar Method in 2003 while living in San Francisco and working as a medical sales rep. In 2004 she trained to be an instructor with founder, Burr Leonard, and taught at the Marina studio. The incredible physical and mental transformation she saw in her students inspired her to pursue the dream of owning a studio. She partnered up with Heather Thompson and opened the doors to the Downtown San Francisco studio in 2008! When away from the studio, Hannah enjoys living the suburban life with her husband and 3 young children in sunny Orinda.

Heather Thompson fell in love with The Bar Method waaay back in 2001. The deal was sealed in her first Bar Method class taught by The Bar Method founder, Burr Leonard. In 2002, Heather was fortunate enough to join the second ever Bar Method training group in San Francisco. She taught for the Marina studio before and after work from her “regular job” until her love of The Bar Method lead to partnering with Hannah Goetz to open their very own studio in Downtown San Francisco in 2008.
