Policies.

Reservations & Waitlist

  • While walk-ins are welcome, we highly recommend reserving classes online in order to guarantee your spot in class. Reservations can be made up to 7 days in advance.

  • Classes fill up quickly, but spaces often open up 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, you will receive an email and mobile phone text notification that you’ve been added to that class. Please reply to either the text or the email immediately letting us know whether you can attend or not. If you do not respond at all, we will assume that you are attending the class. If you do not attend or if you late cancel, our standard cancellation policy will apply. If you had signed up for multiple wait lists on the same day, you are responsible for removing yourself from them once you are confirmed for the class you plan to attend.
  • When you arrive at the studio, please check in at the front desk. Reservations will be honored until 5 minutes after the scheduled class time. If you do not arrive on time, your reservation may be given away to someone on the wait list.
  • Cancellations & No-shows

    • If you cannot attend class, please cancel your class online or call the studio on time per the cancellation windows below in order to avoid being charged a fee.
    • If you are using a Gilt City package or New Client Special, a no-show will result in a $20 fee and a late cancellation will result in a $10 fee. We will waive the first late cancel on introductory packages. We do not waive any no-shows. If you are using a 10 class pack, a no-show will result in losing one class from your package and for late cancellations there is a $10 fee. If you are using a membership package such as Club Bar, your account will be charged $20 for a no-show and $10 for a late cancellation after your monthly complimentary late cancel.
    • Cancellation windows:
      • All classes beginning before 9am: Reservations must be cancelled at least 12 hours in advance.
      • Weekend classes: Reservations must be cancelled at least 12 hours in advance.
      • All other classes: Reservations must be cancelled at least 2 hours in advance.

    Late Arrival to Class

    • First time students may not enter a class late. Arriving 10 minutes early is highly recommended.
    • Returning students may enter an ongoing class up to, but not after, 10 minutes into class.
    • Upon entering class, lift your knees 40 times to warm up before joining in.

    Class Attire

    • Please wear exercise pants that cover the knees, a top that covers the midriff, and socks that cover the entire foot (no toeless socks please!).
    • Students may bring their own socks from home, or purchase socks with sticky grips at the studio.

    Studio Etiquette

    • If you arrive for class late, please lift your legs 40 times before joining the class.

    Pregnant Clients

    • New and continuing pregnant clients must provide a doctor’s note that gives them permission to take strengthening and stretching classes. This note MUST be brought in prior to your first class if you are new to the Bar Method. If you are an existing client, please bring this note in as soon as you know you are pregnant. Please inform your teacher you are pregnant prior to class time.
    • We recommend that pregnant clients new to the Bar Method take the at-home Bar Method Pregnancy online class several times before taking class at our studio and consult with an instructor about modifications prior to taking class at the studio.
    • We provide modifications that allow the exercises to be performed comfortably throughout pregnancy. Consult with an instructor regarding these modifications.

    Age Restrictions

    • The minimum age requirement is 14 years old.
    • Clients under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

    Illness & Injuries
