The Bar Method Santa Barbara opened in La Cumbre Plaza in 2015. The Bar Method is a safe, fun, hour-long workout that uses isometric exercises to strengthen and tone the major muscle groups, followed by stretching to elongate and align the body. Based on ballet-dance conditioning, it was developed under the guidance of physical therapists to reshape muscles, burn body fat and improve posture. Students quickly see results regardless of fitness levels or experience. Owner Kendall Clark and her staff guide clients to achieve their fitness goals in a warm, supportive environment. The beautiful spacious studio includes amenities such as locker rooms with showers, towel service, babysitting, coffee/tea bar, free parking and an active wear boutique.
