We are ready for you!
We offer interactive classes online, outside and in studio. We require masks to be worn in all common areas of the studio. While working out, you are strategically spaced from other attendees with your sanitized props and can remove your masks. We are committed to providing you with an all around safe workout.
About the studio
The Bar Method Tampa - Westshore 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.
Our studio features a light-filled, open space with tall ceilings, 2 workout studios and a large locker room with 3 showers. We are located in Westshore, near International Plaza with many surrounding upscale dining options. There are plenty of free parking spaces both in the front of our studio and in surrounding parking garages. We are open 7 days a week.
