The Bar Effect

Get ready for a full-body burn! If you are looking for a serious toning workout, you must try a class at The Bar Effect. This total body workout lifts your booty, tones your thighs, legs, arms and flattens those beautiful abs. Utilizing the bar to perform small isometric movements set to music, The Bar Effect is the fastest, most effective, yet non-invasive way to change your body and see results fast.

Created with an Orthopedic background, each strength section of the workout is followed by a stretching section in order to elongate, lean muscle without bulk. It defies gravity by tapering everything in and lifting it up. The workout requires such focus that you block “life” out for the 55 minutes, allowing you to obtain the mental benefits achieved in yoga and pilates. The Bar Effect has amazing results in assisting with the rehabilitation of simple injuries to clients with spinal cord injuries.
