About Our Studio.

The beautiful Santa Clara Studio opened in January of 2012.  It is located in the heart of Silicon Valley and is dedicated to providing the best, most intense barre-focused workout to all members of the South Bay Community.

Stephanie Cho and Leslie Searson co-own the studio and are proud to have been trained by the Bar Method founder Burr Leonard at the Bar Method flagship studio in San Francisco.

Stephanie has been a Bar Method devotee since 2006, and credits it with helping her get into the best shape of her life.  An avid exercise and fitness fan, she tried every fitness trend (dance, yoga, pilates, spinning, weights etc.) before becoming addicted to the Bar Method.  She appreciates the wholly engrossing nature, both physically and mentally, of the Bar Method and can genuinely attest to the fact that it never gets easier – which is a good thing!  She looks forward to encouraging (in a loving way, of course) her clients to challenge and push themselves to achieve their own fitness goals.

Leslie has been a long time fan of the method and has had first-hand experience at what it’s like to set fitness goals and actually see the results! Feeling & seeing all the wonderful benefits Bar Method had provided, lead her to open a studio where she could share her knowledge and help educate others. At the studio she brings with her a sense of calm, light-hearted and a helpful nature which lends itself to a fun and challenging class environment. She hopes to lead, and inspire her students to their own success through the Bar Method technique!

“We love how disciplined and dedicated our clients are.  They are why we love what we do!”
