Owners and instructors receive in-person training to help them develop and hone their teaching skills. After the studio opens, we conduct regular conference calls, distribute frequent teaching notes, and provide additional coaching through on-site visits. All owners are invited to attend the annual Bar Method conference where owners come together with the Headquarters team to share, network, support, and inspire one another.

Our program includes initial training, post training, ongoing evaluations and workshops to continually refine teaching skills. It begins with three days of initial training in Woodbury, MN followed by 3-6 months of post training in your home location with the support of an assigned trainer. Studio owners serve as mentors for their own instructors and are instrumental in creating a close knit family of dedicated Bar Method instructors nationwide.
