Bar Method reshaped my body! I dropped 3 dress sizes and 1 pant size!
I’ve always had the exact opposite of a typical female “pear shaped” figure. Like the women on both sides of my family, I’m built with broad shoulders, a large chest and stomach, followed by narrow hips, and long, slender legs. We’re a family of olives walking around on toothpicks. I’ve learned to graciously accept my shape. That being said, I try to keep my body as lean and toned as possible.
When I joined The Bar Method, it seemed to me that the majority of the focus was on buns and thighs. I was more concerned about my mid-upper body, so wasn’t sure if Bar Method could help me reach my goals. Still, I stuck with it because I enjoyed the class and the instructors. In this time, I also made some big shifts to my diet by eliminating most sugars.
A year has passed, and I just borrowed a black tie dress from my extremely fit, model of a stepmom. I used to wear a size 14 dress because I was so broad in the chest and shoulders – now I wear a size 8. I can’t believe that The Bar Method so drastically reshaped my upper body! It feels great!
