Allie Marszalek has been active through sports and exercise throughout most of her life. Her training in combat sports began in childhood, as Allie was a student at the J.H. Kim Tae Kwon Do institute for over ten years. She received her black belt from their Boston location in 2010. After this, she trained in boxing technique at the Nonantum Boxing Club in Newton, MA on and off during 2012. It was around this time that Allie found her Yoga mat through elective credit classes during college. Allie has since practiced both Yoga and Barre regularly at Shanti Yoga (formally...

When I was hired to be a teacher at the Lotte Berk Method there were three things they were clear on. 1) The duration of your training depends on you - you will be trained like an athlete and you will be sore like one too, 2) Your training does not guarantee you will teach classes, 3) Dedication to the task is not an option. So, after agreeing to all of that and my new salary (yes, you received a salary to train), I was ready to begin. Not everyone at the Lotte Berk Method was trained privately, but I was....

Today one of my friends sent me an article. A great article actually with great insight about a clients first barre class. It has inspired me to TRY to remember mine. My first barre class was at the Lotte Berk Method in the summer of 1999. I had just graduated from college and moved to Manhattan to fulfill all my dreams (what I didn't realize it was this job that would do that). I was nervous and hadn't danced in months, so I wasn't sure I was physically prepared to take class, but literally thought all the walking I've added since...

When you do our videos on our website do you play music? Or are you one of our BarSculpt (barre) teachers? Have you been utilizing the Playlists we've added to our League portion of the website. If so.. some extra instruction is needed on HOW to use or make a playlist for BarSculpt classes. We want to start with something upbeat. The first song should be three and half to four minutes and will get you from the cardio boost through front body. The Second song (also upbeat) will take you all the way through reverse push ups (aka tricep dips)....

Should I do BarSculpt to lose weight? This question is hard to answer. There are many reasons why one should workout while trying to lose weight. Also HOW much weight has a big effect on the answer as well. If weight loss is your goal, BarSculpt alone will not be your magic answer. Absolutely moving is an important piece to weight loss, but it is ONLY part of the complicated puzzle. So as an easy answer, NO! That truly is a hard answer to write, mainly because I have seen many clients be very successful with BarSculpt as a major...

First, you may have noticed that we have made a change to our class terminology in our retail area. You will no longer see the words 'drop in' associated with any of our class purchase options. You will instead find 'Single BarSculpt/Mat Class' and 'Single Reformer Class.' This is in an effort to create a more clear path from purchase to practice. Meaning, we are encouraging you to sign up in advance for your classes. This not only guarantees you a spot in class, but makes you more likely to attend, encourages others to attend, and makes your arrival to class smoother....
