Remake Your Body with the Bar Method
The Bar Method is an exercise program that elongates the muscles in your seat and thighs. After about 10 sessions, your legs will look longer, your abs will begin to pull themselves back under your rib cage, your shoulders, chest and arms will become lean and defined and your seat will begin to lift. The bar method will also burn away fat during the challenging and sometimes intense workout. It won’t be long and you’ll notice that your intramuscular fat will burn away revealing a new smoother, narrower and more defined body.
The Bar method exercises focus on non-impact, deep muscle, very precise movements that almost anyone can do. Just beware, because these exercises are very precise you WILL feel the burn and you’ll feel it quickly especially in the exercises that are targeting the thighs, hips and buttocks. The movements may be small, but the numerous repetitions yield fast results.
As you build endurance, you may want to repeat some of your favorite exercises to maximize results. You will do deep stretching after each set of exercises. This is important because it will help release the targeted muscle, build flexibility and elongate the muscle.

History of the Bar Method
The Bar Method was created by a German dancer, Lotte Berk. After sustaining a back injury, she created a workout incorporating both her ballet background with her rehabilitation therapy. She eventually opened a studio and began teaching her method to others, including Brooke Shields and Joan Collins.
The instructor, Burr Leonard, will show you how to achieve a healthier and more beautiful body for life. Burr is a former journalist with Forbes, Esquire and Adam smith’s Money World, she began studying the Lotte Berk Method in 1981 and later whet on to train and eventually teach at the Lotte Berk studio. In 1991, Burr opened her own studio in Greenwich, Connecticut teaching the Bar Method.
Equipment you will need for the Bar Method
The equipment you will need for the Bar Method exercises are two lightweight dumbbells weighing 3 to 5 lb., used for the Designer Sculpting workout; a strap (like a bathrobe belt), and a bar. If you don’t have a bar, a sturdy chair will work just fine. Two of the demonstrators on the video use a chair, just be sure it’s sturdy enough to support you as you do the exercises. You won’t be leaning on the bar or chair, it’s just for support as you work through the exercises.
