  • When: Grand Opening – September 17th and 18th from 8:00 AM to 2:00 PM EST.
  • Why: The Bar Method is the pioneer in the growing barre-based exercise programs with safe, fun, hour-long workouts that use isometric exercises to strengthen and tone all major muscle groups, followed by periods of stretching to elongate, lengthen and align the body. It was developed under the guidance of physical therapists to reshape muscles, burn body fat and improve posture.

    The Bar Method Darien is the first studio owned and operated by Meehan and Trepanier. Centrally located, the new studio offers a spa like aesthetic with several amenities including a coffee and bar lounge, outdoor seating for warmer months and both male and female locker rooms.
  • Who: The Bar Method, founded by Burr Leonard in 2001, is an industry leader in the rapidly growing barre-based fitness niche. Bar Method classes are built on the body-elongating practice of dance conditioning, the science of physical therapy and the pace of interval training, making it the most targeted and effective body-sculpting workout. Bar Method franchisees, all certified teachers, were attracted to the Bar Method’s high-quality, safe workout, excellent teacher-training program, unparalleled franchisee support, and strong brand identity. Bar Method clients are drawn to the effectiveness and safety of the innovative workout, excellent teaching quality and outstanding customer service.

“The Bar Method program is highly effective in sculpting bodies and creating stronger individuals; it is proof that minimal, yet concentrated movements, drive results,” said Meehan. “The Bar Method is the perfect place to build your physical and mental strength, and we are so excited to open our doors to the Darien community.” 

“Coming from two very different professions, Lara and I fell in love with The Bar Method and have been teaching side by side for the past five years; opening our first studio together is literally a dream come true,” said Trepanier. “We were fortunate enough to learn directly Burr Leonard (The Bar Method’s founder) – who began her journey in Fairfield County, CT – and are so excited to bring the experience full circle.”
