The Bar Method Shoot Takes Place at Avenue Six Studios in Van Nuys, California

Van Nuys, Ca (October 13, 2010) – Reel to Reel Productions recently shot all-new “The Bar Method� footage for their upcoming DVD release at Avenue Six Studios. Under Producer/Director Packy McFarland and Line Producer Ted Baker, The Bar Method™ workout DVD creates a uniquely lean, firm, sculpted body by combining the muscle-shaping principles of isometrics, the body-elongating practice of dance conditioning, the science of physical therapy and the intense pace of interval training into a powerful exercise format that quickly and safely reshapes and elongates muscles. Burr Leonard, a former journalist, has been practicing and improving on the exercises that now make up The Bar Method exercise system since 1991. Burr had been an avid Lotte Berk Method student since 1981 and had been teaching since 1991 when she was The Lotte Berk Method's sole licensee. In 1991 Burr and Carl Diehl, a lawyer, opened their first exercise studio in Greenwich, Connecticut. In 2000 they founded The Bar Method, Inc. and the next year opened their flagship studio in San Francisco. Since then they have built and franchised many Bar Method studios around the country and have produced two exercise dvds, the first in an ongoing series. They currently co-own The Bar Method™, Inc., The Bar Method™ Franchising Company, Inc., and with Beth DiMicco, The Bar Method™ Media, Inc.
