What You'll Get
The only thing that separates willowy professional dancers from willowy giant squids is the vertebrate skeleton. Obtain a physique you can flaunt in front of amazed cephalopods with today’s Groupon: for $22, new and existing clients get two one-hour classes (a $44 value) at The Bar Method. The Bar Method is an exercise superbreed, which combines the benefits of interval training, isometrics, dance principles, and physical therapy into one revolutionary routine. This Groupon is good at its Redmond Town Center location only.
While Pilates is corrective, The Bar Method is transformative—much like those cars that transform into miniature weasels. 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. This diverse and challenging workout gives you the long, lean muscles and elegant posture of a ballet dancer, all without the discomfort and inconvenience of being heckled by ballet hooligans.
The Bar Method has attracted a flock of celebrity clients, including Drew Barrymore, Zooey Deschanel, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kelly Osbourne, Anna Paquin, and local celebrity Josie Bisset. Because of its focus on stretching and lengthening, The Bar Method provides excellent practice for Gumby impersonators. Classes take place Mondays through Saturdays. Get this Groupon and discover a new, comprehensive system of exercise that will tone your limbs without leading to Hulk-shredded pants.
Must be at least 16 years of age. Customers between the ages of 16 and 18 must have a parent sign a release form at the studio.

The national lengthening-and-strengthening sensation has garnered a slew of press, with mentions in publications from 944 to People to Esquire, as well as local publications like The Woodinville Weekly and 425 magazine. Melrose Place star Josie Bissett makes The Bar Method part of her workout routine. The Bar Method’s Redmond location has received several great client testimonials and Yelpers give it a perfect five stars: > * …Burr Diehl…has been bottom feeding, so to speak. Her Bar Method workouts are so effective that the term “bar butt” is entering the local dialect… – Mary Tannen, New York Times Style > * By focusing on large muscle groups – thighs, glutes, and chest – the Bar Method helps raise metabolism more effectively than regimens that focus on smaller muscle groups. – Esquire > * It’s truly unlike any other exercise class I’ve taken because it combines the best of several disciplines in a novel way with the aim of sculpting and elongating the muscles to create lean, dancer-like bodies. – Deborah Stone, The Woodinville Weekly
