About Our Studio

I graduated from Utah State University with a degree in Business. My first job out of college was a sales associate for Pitney Bowes in Phoenix, Arizona. I later worked for Creative Color in SLC as a sales person covering the territories of Utah, Idaho, and Washington. I loved working with people and the sales world suited me well. I began a family, and before I knew it had three beautiful daughters. I made a decision to leave the workforce after my first daughter was born. I took my first Bar Method class from Burr Leonard at the San Francisco Marina studio on June 28, 2008. Immediately, I was stunned by every aspect of fitness that was so flawlessly seamed together in this methodical 60 minute group fitness class. As I left class, I was invigorated, feeling stronger, longer, and moved with a renewed aura of confidence. I realized The Bar Method challenged my mind and my physical limits like never before. I wanted more. The only way to get more was to open a studio in Salt Lake City and share this miraculous workout with others. On December 19, 2011, I opened Utah’s first Bar Method studio at 1057 East 2100 South. I started with three instructors and 15 classes a week. Four years later, I have nine Bar Method instructors and 45 weekly classes, along with 8 front desk staff who joyfully work together to create a “life renewing experience” at The Bar Method for each client who walks through the door.
