Students Feel Strong + Confident at The Bar Method Montclair
The Bar Method Montclair opened in July 2011. In June 2019, current owner and instructor, Jenna Smith bought the studio and continues to teach classes and manage the day-to-day operations alongside incredible support staff and a team of 15 instructors who help students strengthen their bodies and minds.
Not only do classes at The Bar Method aim to reshape your entire body, but it allows you to channel your inner strength and leave the class feeling strong, confident, and poised. Highly-trained instructors customize the physical therapy-based exercises to ensure they are safe and effective for any age and every body — including modifications for pregnant women and students with injuries. The staff and community support each student from the moment they walk through the door.
For two decades, The Bar Method has been building stronger bodies with challenging barre workouts that infuse power into every movement. Each exercise is meticulously designed to transform your body through high-repetition, low-impact resistance training. With integrated elements of Pilates, yoga, and other strength training workouts fused into a ballet-inspired barre workout, you will experience unthinkable flexibility, total-body definition, and metabolism-boosting endurance that lasts long after class.
“This is not just another barre workout — we barre differently and that’s a good thing. The interval format of each class is designed to elevate your heart rate while building cardiovascular and muscle endurance,” Jenna told The Montclair Girl. “While each barre class is unique, you can always count on a personal training experience within a high-energy group fitness environment.”
Your Body, Your Barre Workout
No two classes are alike at The Bar Method, and it’s in that unpredictable variety where transformation happens. Class formats vary in duration, design, and experience so be sure to check out the variety of classes before choosing. Along with a large workout studio, The Bar Method provides a comfortable lounge area and coffee bar, a full locker room, and beauty bar. Towel service is provided and metered parking is available.
“The best part of owning and teaching a class at The Bar Method Montclair is being able to create a strong sense of community among our clients. I go to work every day looking forward to surrounding myself with people who have become my extended family. We all truly love what we do and enjoy being together as a community,” Jenna said. “Our instructors and support staff work hard to empower everyone who walks through the door and help them transform their bodies and minds from the inside out.”
The Bar Method exists to equip and empower people of any age, body type, and ability to pursue the strongest, healthiest version of themselves. The instructors do this through highly-efficient, total-body workouts that build both physical and mental strength which are essential to living your best life.
