The Bar Method’s Next Chapter

You may have noticed something different today on The Bar Method’s website.  Today we are redefining our future.

When we think of The Bar Method, two words come to mind: strength and grace. It is the juxtaposition between these two qualities that defines who we are. We are strong and powerful, and at the same time poised and graceful.  These words perfectly summarize the essence of our brand and our community of clients, teachers and owners.  They speak to both the graceful outer strength of the long, lean sculpted muscles and the graceful inner strength of someone who is centered, composed and empowered.

We believe all women possess the drive to never give up. That women are fearless — constantly pushing boundaries and defying expectations.  Working for progress, not perfection.  Our workout is intense and challenging and as a result; it transforms your body to give you toned, sculpted muscles and makes you strong like never before.  At the same time you are left with a feeling of elegance and poise that makes you feel beautiful on the inside and out.

Today we reveal the true colors of our brand while reinforcing our authentic DNA and heritage as one of the pioneers in barre fitness.  The core of who we are is rooted in our relentless focus on the quality and consistency of The Bar Method technique and delivering a workout that is safe and effective for anyone and every unique body.  Our mission extends beyond the ballet barre, inspiring women (and men) to become the best versions of themselves.

Today we share our new website with you that brings to life our new brand and improved functionality, including a 14-day free trial for Bar Online.  We’ll continue to roll out the new look and feel across local studios and more in the coming months.

Here’s to the next chapter and celebrating the true meaning of graceful strength.

 

Blissed-Out Barre-istas: Before & After Pics

Not long ago, you may have seen a pretty creative picture gallery called “Tipsy Portrait Project” circulating the inter-web in which photographer Marcos Alberti photographed his subjects after 1, 2 and 3 glasses of wine. The result was pretty much what you’d imagine, with partygoers becoming exponentially flushed and jubilant as the series, and the pours, continued.

We at The Bar Method Atlanta decided to do our own less boozy, more barre-y version of the photo series. Keep in mind that we didn’t quite have the budget for a professional photographer, fancy lenses, and so on… but their post-barre glow shines through nonetheless.

Check out these beautiful, blissed-out barre-istas (a.k.a. loyal clients of The Bar Method Atlanta)…

Our “subjects” walked into class reeling from a rather cold, wet winter morning and walked out an hour later with an energetic buzz of emitting from deep within. And we’ll take that lasting, hangover-free “buzz” over one at the bar any day.

Lines We Love: Bamboo Juices

When we seek out products to feature in the retail shop at The Bar Method Atlanta, I’ll be the first to admit that we’re a bit picky. It can be a long process finding products we feel confident to stand behind and sell to the clients who trust us. But that obsession with quality over quantity is something I’m most proud of. Plus, there’s something so satisfying about seeking out and supporting brands that resonate with us, not only as smart consumers, but also on a heart level.

Bamboo Juices is one of those brands for me. I could go on and on with the reasons why- it’s organic, locally produced, tastes uh-maze-ing and so on, but here are four most interesting reasons Bamboo Juices is a line we love.

1. The brains behind Bamboo. Bamboo Juice CEO and founder, Kelley Sibley, did her homework in the creation of her brand. In fact, she spent 15 years studying anthropology and traveling the world to learn about the eating habits of people who live in “Blue Zones”. These are areas with high concentrations of people who live passed 100 years old. She uses the ingredients and combinations of foods found to be most beneficial to longevity in these areas, and then lovingly worked them into each of her juices and almond milk.

2. It’s chock full of micronutrients. Raw, cold-pressed juices pack a powerful punch of micronutrients, feeding us on a cellular level. But Bamboo Juices takes nutrition to the next level by using a Norwalk Juicer, basically the Bentley of hydraulic press juicers. This progressive production method has been proven to be most effective in retrieving nutritional enzymes from fibers of produce. And more nutrition density means a healthier you!

3. Unlike life, it’s simple. Bamboo uses no more than five ingredients in each juice or almond milk. Our body uses different enzymes to break down different ingredients. Using limited ingredients ensures that the body can complete digestion and also complete nutrient absorption. The flavors of each ingredient really come through in yummy combinations, like lemon-ginger-green apple and carrot-ginger-lime.

4. Our clients love them. And we love our clients! Sure, we initially pick the products we want to feature at The Bar Method Atlanta because the staff loves them but after that initial order has been placed, it’s our clients that have the last word. If we hear less-than-ideal feedback or if a product just isn’t selling, it will be short-lived.
