Obtain a physique you can flaunt in front of curious strangers with today’s Groupon. For $18, you’ll get two one-hour classes at The Bar Method, an exercise superbreed combining the benefits of interval training, isometrics, dance principles, and physical therapy into one revolutionary routine.
While Pilates is corrective, the Bar Method is transformative—much like those cars that transform into mech warriors. You’ll burn fat, sculpt muscles, refine your figure, and improve your strength and endurance. After a brief warm-up, you’ll tackle the upper body with weights and bar exercises. The workout continues with challenging lower-body positions and floor exercises designed to firm up your abs and glutes. Stretch and tone each muscle group, burning fat and gaining definition. This diverse and challenging workout gives you the long, lean muscles and elegant posture of a ballet dancer without the discomfort and inconvenience of wearing a tutu.
Because of its focus on stretching and lengthening, The Bar Method is also a great way for moms-to-be to reduce aches and swollen joints from pregnancy. This deal is good at the Bar Method studio located in the WaterStreet Plaza, which features locker rooms with full amenities and free parking. Classes take place Mondays through Saturdays. Get this Groupon and discover a new, comprehensive system of exercise that will tone you from head to toe.
Note: Wear comfortable clothing (yoga or dance wear) and socks.

The Bar Method
In 1959 German dancer Lotte Berk turned a back injury into the beginnings of a fitness phenomenon. Whether it was clairvoyant foresight, a prophesy spelled out in alphabet soup, or just plain stubbornness to dance her way through an injury no one knows, but her combination of ballet training and rehabilitative therapy formed the foundation of The Lotte Berk Method exercise studio. In 2001, after decades of running her own Lotte Berk studio, journalist and entrepreneur Burr Leonard teamed with a physical therapist to refine the movements of this workout to target specific muscles while reducing the impact on joints. The result became known as the Bar Method. Since the opening of Burr’s first studio, The Bar Method franchise has grown to 65 locations in 18 states across the United States and British Columbia, Canada. More than 80,000 students take these classes per month including celebrities Drew Barrymore, Ricki Lake and Anna Paquin.
