    I love it and found it super challenging. I am a dancer though and I thought it really contained zero dance at all. However, it was a great workout. I do think it’ll end up just being a trend though.

    I love it! I go to Cardio Barre (local Los Angeles chain, virtually the same as Bar Method) and I’ve been going 4 times a week for about a year now. There is no sign of it losing it’s popularity, at least here in LA. 

    I was a dancer growing up, so the moves are familiar to me. And I like that it’s a super strong cardio workout too!

    I like the DVD, i cant afford the classes. so expensive!  But if I could andit were convenient to my schedule and location, I would totally do this instead of the gym.

    Are you talking about the bar method or some other branded chain? I’m absolutely obsessed with bar method and it’s actually a long term goal of mine to own a studio! I think it will be around for a long time. But your area will influence how popular it is. I took classes when I lived in LA, but where I’m currently living, people would just laugh at the rates. Since you’re just talking about teaching for someone else and not investing anything, I would totally go for it!

    As a former dancer, and a current dance teacher, I love this idea! I wish there was a studio nearby my house. Just lik eevery other method of exercise, using a barre won’t be for everyone, but there is definitely a following that will like it!

    Whoa whoa whoa whoa!

    How am I just hearing about this?!

    I did ballet for years.  I’ve done a few personal training sessions and classes, and they all comment on the fact that they can see the ballet whenever I work out. I like the classes I do now (muscle confusion, zumba, etc), but I’ve really missed dance.

    This would be PERFECT for me!  I now have to look it up!

    I love barre! It’s definitely part of my long term fitness plan. I started with Core Fusion in LA, they have studios in a few major cities and was spoiled rotten by them, they are by far the best! I’m currently doing barre at a studio in the twin cities (where I live now) and its no where near as challenging as core fusion. Luckily we are moving back to either ny or la in a few years, both have core fusion studios. It’s totally worth it for me- its the only thing I’ve been able to stick with and have lost an enormous amount of weight, plus I’ve toned!

    @maplemag:  Awesome!  Unfortunately I’m near Hartford, but I have a bunch of friends in that area.  I might have to go visit!!

    Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention!  I’m pumped!

    Bar Method is great, but the one in Boston is so expensive.  I went there for 4 months before I had to quit due to cost and moving.  I wish there were more locations and it was cheaper.  My body was awesome due to bar method though.

    i’m currently doing pure barre but did dailey method before that. i like that i don’t feel like dying afterwards. the music can be good, i’ve lost some weight. i look better, my ass is bigger in a good way.

    i don’t like the fact that only those with $$$$ can afford it and the girls all kind of look from a certain walk of life. i stick out like a sore thumb :p i’ve only been able to go because of intro deals or groupon-like offers.

    bar classes have been in my area for years (at least 5+ yrs as far as I can gather).  There are new ones popping up now so its on the rise.

    I opened this thread thinking it was going to have something to do with Wilkes-Barre.

    I think it’ll be long-term because of all of the former dancers who would love it. If there was a studio near my house, I’d join!
