Raise the Bar
Move over yoga, step aside pilates, for a new total-body-toning trend is emerging. Combining dance, yoga, isometrics and strength training, The Bar Method (barmethod.com) has raised the bar for all other fitness classes.
This budding exercise craze is trimming, tightening, sculpting, and stretching bodies across the country with controlled movements. As you watch your body transform, you will be thrilled to do away with copious exercise contraptions, finally get out of downward dog and instead simply grab a ballet barre or even a kitchen counter. But hold on for dear life, because your muscles will be trembling with exhaustion and after fifty repetitions you will only be able to lift your leg that one last time, out of sheer will. A few sessions later, you will begin to notice your butt lifting and your waist tightening.
Soon your body will be taut, your shape svelte, your confidence sky high, and you won't even need to utter 'om.'
