Reservations & Policies
While walk-ins are welcome, we highly recommend reserving classes online in order to guarantee your spot in class. In order to reserve online you must have positive class credits (note: class packages can be purchased online). When you arrive at the studio, please check-in at the front desk so we know you have arrived and can ensure you have an enjoyable experience. Click here to schedule a class!
Classes fill up quickly, but spaces often open up regularly as clients reschedule. If you'd like to attend a class that is full, please put yourself on the waitlist. As soon as a spot opens up in class, you will receive an email notification. Please confirm you received the notification by following the steps:
Here is how you can confirm your spot online:
- Log into your account.
- Click on My Info.
- Click on My Schedule.
- My Schedule will list all the classes you are currently in as well as classes that you have been added to from the waitlist.
- Click on "Class Level" (ie, Mixed, Level 2) for the class that you can confirm
- In the Notes box within Visit Details, you can write "Confirmed". Then click Update.
- This will notify us that you are coming to class and we will mark you as confirmed.
Reminder: Being bumped off the waitlist into class means you are IN CLASS and therefore responsible for confirming or cancelling your spot. If you get into class from the waitlist with more than 60 minutes prior to class start and do not show up or cancel your reservation you will be charged. If you get into class from the waitlist and are already scheduled for another class in the same day, you will need to cancel your reservation for your other class within the 4-hour cancellation window; if you do not cancel, you will be charged for class. If you are moved off the waitlist less than 60 minutes before the start of class you will not be charged.
You may cancel your class reservation up to 4 hours prior to the start of class with no charge. All cancellations must be made online unless you absolutely cannot get to a computer to do so.
LATE CANCELLATION/NO SHOW PENALTIES
Clients with class packs will lose one class credit. Clients on unlimited packages (including the new client special) will be charged $15 per late cancel or no show.
If you would like to switch to a different class time within 4-hours of your reservation, you may do so without incurring a fee under the following condition:
WEEKDAYS ONLY: If you would like to move to another class time that same day AND the class you are LEAVING is NOT full, you can switch with no penalty providing that you call and speak with someone at the studio prior to the start of class.
WEEKENDS: Please note that ANY class switching on the weekend is subject to a fee.
If this is your first Bar Method class, please arrive 10-15 minutes early as there is no admittance for first-timers once class has started. First-timers will need to complete the new client form and hang from the stall bar prior to class.
Returning clients may enter up to 10 minutes after class has started, but please note that your spot may be taken by standby clients if you arrive late unless you call the studio and notify the front desk that you will be arriving within the 10 minute window. Late-comers must lift their knees 40 times prior to joining class. If class has been in session for more than 10 minutes, returning students will not be permitted to join. We strictly adhere to this policy for the safety of our clients.
Exercise pants to the knee or below (compression shorts must be worn underneath if pants are loose fitting), tops that cover midriff and waistband of pants, and socks that cover the entire foot. Socks must be on PRIOR to entering the studio and must stay covering the entire foot throughout class.
Cell phones are not allowed in the exercise studios during class.
Please do not chew gum in the studio during class.
Drinks other than water are not permitted in the studio. Water must be capped and in a container that is not glass.
The minimum age requirement is 14 years old. Clients between the ages of 14-18 must be accompanied by an adult.
New and continuing pregnant clients must provide a doctor's note that allows permission to take strengthening and stretching classes. We also have a form you can send to your doctor. Please inform your teacher you are pregnant prior to class time.
Pregnant clients new to the Bar Method must have previously taken a "bar-based" class or the at home Bar Method Pregnancy DVD a minimum of 5 times.
We have adopted several modifications that allow the exercises to be performed comfortably throughout the pregnancy. For more information about the Bar Method and pregnancy, click here!
If you have a heart condition, epilepsy, lupus, or severe sciatica, we require a doctors note on your first visit that allows you to take stretching and strengthening classes."
