Learn how to fine-tune the Bar Method technique and understand what keeps everyone coming back time and again.

Get your blood flowing during warm-up:

Jen W. prepares you for the rest of class by kicking it off with 2nd position biceps curls, 5 full range pushups, followed by 20 pulses and wraps it up with reverse pushups.

  • Tones and strengthens your shoulders, biceps and triceps.
  • Works your core muscles.
  • Narrows your upper arm for a sculpted, slender look.
  • Burn calories during thigh:

    You will test the power of your thighs with two consecutive sets of thigh-work: start with your feet in a narrow V stance and then finish in a wide stance with your heels raised.

    Benefits:

  • Toned, slimmer thighs.
  • Substantial caloric burn-off.
  • Leaner body overall.
  • Lift your glutes with fold-over:

    Maggie will help raise your heart rate and lift your seat in this effective exercise for your glutes.

    Benefits:

  • Burns lots of calories.
  • Increases your stamina.
  • Head to the floor for curl, back dancing and final stretch:
