LA's Favorite Bar Workout Celebrates the Start of Its Tenth Year in Los Angeles

LOS ANGELES, CA--(Marketwire - Jan 31, 2012) - With three thousand visits a week, Westsiders shake and sculpt at The Bar Method LA's ballet bar workout in what has become widely known as one of the most strenuous, productive exercise genres in America today. Bar Method arrived in LA on February 1, 2003, and since has become a household name spawning more than a dozen other Bar Method studios around the Southland. The workout stands out in its ability to precisely target difficult-to-reach muscles and to support its students according to their individual needs and goals. Teachers support, guide and encourage each student while maintaining a fast-paced flow that burns away fat, builds stamina and carves muscle.

The Bar Method inspires devotion among its students due to the incredibly effective workout it is. Celebrity students, many of whom have publicly praised The Bar Method and how it has transformed their figures, include: Drew Barrymore, Ricki Lake, Kelly Osbourne, Annabeth Gish, Eliza Dushku, Ginnifer Goodwin, Kyra Sedgwick, Jennifer Grey, Rick Fox, Anna Paquin, Lisa Rinna, Lucy Punch, Eve, and Denise Richards.

The Bar Method LA will be celebrating the start of its 10th year with a Client Appreciation Week and will be giving away prizes to one student in each of its 187 classes that take place February 1st through February 6, 2012.

Bringing the Bar Method LA community even closer together, most of the prizes have been provided by Bar Method LA clients or neighbors and include such items as a consultation with nutrition stylist Dana Kofsky, a $150 Gift Card from Pyrrha's jewelry line, cashmere gloves from 360SWEATER -- the newest creation from Leslie and Bruce Gifford, an $800 Beauty Bash at Benefit, a 2-hour massage at Meridian Day Spa, an Elaine Kim sheer long sleeved tee, a facial by skin care guru Linda Ross, or a gift certificate for a dozen cake pops -- from Bar Method LA teacher Beth Griffin's Sweet Life Kitchen.

The Bar Method LA is located in three convenient locations in West LA, West Hollywood, and at the Brentwood Town Center on the border of Santa Monica, giving Angelenos a wide choice of locations to attend. Nearby but separately owned Bar Methods in Palos Verdes, Hermosa Beach, Burbank, Pasadena, Santa Barbara, Long Beach, Agoura Hills, Marina del Rey, Newport Coast, Tustin, and the soon-to-open Silver Lake provide additional Bar Method studio options.

In addition to toning, strengthening, and creating "Bar Method Bodies" with sculpted arms, carved abs, and lifted seats, The Bar Method tones and strengthens its students' minds, providing them one hour of intense mind-body focus that quiets their brains and inspires their spirits.

The Bar Method was founded by Burr Leonard in 2001 and is headquartered in San Francisco. There are now 58 Bar Method studios around the U.S. and in Canada.
