My home away from home. Killer workouts with the best teachers on the planet. Love the owner Amanda and the front desk staff is so friendly too. Clean facility and love all the new varied classes. Been a member for over a decade and can’t imagine my life without it.


I truly love the front desk lady and the instrutor. I appreciate her being cute and nice and her being professional and patient. I had a hard time doing some postures and maybe sometimes too confident about myself. She holds her tolerance and at times comes to correct me. That’s good. She didn’t ignore me or just let me do whatever. I appreciate that. Frontdesk Betty is a very sweet girl. She’s definitely your trustworthy front desk person that you can trust and rely on. Very sweet and easy to talk.


I've been a Downtown SF client since 2012 and an instructor since 2015. Words cannot describe how this studio, the technique, and the community have positively affected my life in so many ways, especially during the last 2 years as the world collectively experienced a pandemic.I was so impressed and beyond motivated to see how dedicated our clients were when we transitioned to virtual classes. Not very many gyms or boutique fitness studios were able to pivot so quickly to the virtual setting, and Bar Method Downtown SF did it with grace and immediacy. And now we are continuing to adjust to the changes of the fitness landscape by offering hybrid, virtual, and in-studio classes. If you are a lapsed client, come back! If you are a new client, stick with us. If you are a current client, keep taking.Update June 2023: The studio has amazing new formats that you should try! If you like yoga, take Bar Flow (barre and yoga fusion) and if you want more sweat, take Bar Cardio (high intensity cardio barre class). Bar Method has done incredible innovative work to bring new exciting classes to fit every client's fitness needs.


I am grateful for the online streaming classes from Bar Method Downtown, great accessibility and responsive to any issues. Very friendly and inclusive.


Bar Method San Francisco is fabulous. It's a beautiful studio. The classes are very challenging, the instructors are caring and committed and there is a real sense of community.


The staff is friendly. The instructors (Ana and Claire) are knowledgeable and caring. They keep an eye on you to make sure that you are doing the exercise in the right way and with the right posture. I have attended now 4 classes, and I feel stronger. I leave the class energized. A great way to start the day!


I love bar method! I have been a client since 2008, the workout continues to challenge and strengthen me. I was so impressed how Amanda and her team did not miss a beat as we entered into COVID by offering online and livestream classes, they didn't miss a beat. The instructors and staff are wonderful. Thank you Downtown Bar Method for the years of challenge, strength, support and shaking!


I've been going to the Bar Method Downtown studio for 3 years now and have enjoyed every class! Both in-person and virtual classes are great and the workout is always challenging in the best way. The instructors are very helpful and encouraging! I love these classes and this studio! Highly recommend!


I had a really lovely experience here today. It was my first time in and I was warmly welcomed and given a tour. The front office lady and the teacher were sweet and friendly. The space itself is bright and clean. The class was what you’d expect if you’ve done Bar Method before. Looking forward to returning in a few days.


I have been going to Bar Method Downtown for over 12 years. It never gets old, in fact I get cranky if I cannot attend a class. Its the perfect Mind Body workout that continues to challenge you. The teachers are amazing. Always energetic and motivating. The studio is clean and Staff friendly and helpful. During this current SIP, the owner Amanda launched live ZOOM classes so the clients could continue their workout routine and interact with other clients and the teachers.....its been an amazing break in the day for me while I work from home. Highly recommend!
