Kat discovered The Bar Method in Boston in 2013 and has been an instructor since 2014. The combination of movement to music that is incorporated in every Bar Method class had Kat hooked. The workout not only delivered transformative physical results, but the internal strength and empowerment she gained inspired her to pursue opening a studio.
