Bar Method Long Beach owners Andrea Davis and Joanna West are excited to start this new chapter in their lives as full-time Bar Method franchisees bringing The Bar Method lifestyle to the friendly, fitness minded Long Beach community. Andrea won her first class through a silent auction five years ago. She trained with founder Burr Leonard and master instructor/Burbank studio owner Joey Decker, and began teaching 3 1/2 years ago at the Los Angeles studios known for their celebrity clientele including Ricki Lake, Drew Barrymore, and Anna Paquin. Andrea prides herself on honing her leadership skills in the studio to give her students a workout experience that facilitates a connection to their body and encourages them to work at their personal edge.

Joanna took her first class nearly four years ago and trained with Burr this past May to become a certified instructor. Joanna describes taking class as her, "hour of pure me time where I strengthen my body, mind, and spirit." Inspired by her background in the medical field and personal experience of how The Bar Method positively impacts her life, Joanna now wants to share that knowledge and lifestyle with her new community.
