About Our Studio.

The Bar Method DC is in the heart of DC – conveniently located in Chinatown between Gallery Place and Metro Center.  Kate Arnold opened the studio in June 2011.  The studio has 20 certified instructors and offers 80 classes a week.  The studio has two exercise rooms and a locker room with two showers.  We provide towels, locks, and basic toiletries.

Our instructors, all former Bar Method students, train for several months prior to certification so that we can provide a safe and effective workout for our clients.   We are happy to offer exercise modifications for students who need them.

We offer Mixed classes that are suitable for clients of all levels, including new clients and advanced students.  Our Level One classes are more basic and are great for new students or for clients who want to learn more about form and alignment.  Our Level Two classes provide a faster-moving class with advanced exercises for students who have taken more than 20 classes.


“We consider ourselves a family. A family that likes to work out…a lot!”
