I am doing the Bar Method Workout at a studio near me. The class is One hour and 15 minutes. Does anyone know how many calories this would burn? Thanks - I am new to MFP

No way of knowing without wearing a HRM. Different people burn vastly different amounts doing the same exercises.

I do Bar Method as well and I enter 300 calories for a one hour workout. Burr Leonard, the founder of Bar Method, claims that the average one hour class will burn 200-500 calories depending on how hard you work and if you are in the correct form, so I just went with a number in the middle of that.

When I first started Bar Method I was skeptical about how many calories I was burning but after a couple of months I do believe it is a great calorie burner. In any case, it's a great total body workout and I'd far rather go to a Bar class than run on the treadmill or the elliptical.

Hope that helps!

i've been doing The bar Method & had no idea of how many calories I was burning. I work up quite a sweat so I knew I had to be burning a good amount. Glad I finally found out an estimate on the issue. :)

I log mine under calisthenics. I love barre workouts.

flowerforyou My daughter and I are starting the bar method super sculpting workout 1 DVD today. It laste 1hr. 20 mins. Depending on how intense & maintaining the tuck, is the calorie burn still 200 to 500 calories? It's way more intense than the bar method.

I did Super Sculpting I today. I'm 5'2" and 123 lbs. I have a Polar H7 HRM. I burned 318 calories. I haven't tried II yet. Change Your body is between 200 and 250 calories for me. Fluidity Bar Intermediate is 187 calories for 37 minutes.

I burn about 350 calories in a 60 minute studio class of Bar Method.

I wear a Garmin heart rate monitor. I'm 5'3 and about 134 pounds, and I have a fairly low resting heart rate. I burn about 200 calories in a 60 minute Bar Method class.

I do bar about 4 times per week and I log it as 400, but I'm up to doing all the modifications and I REALLY work hard. When I do level 2 I log 450.

I burn around 200 during a 60 minute class too. Have been wondering if I wasnt working hard enough. A little relieved to see i m not the only burning 200

I wear my heart rate monitor for bar. I'm 5'4 and currently 127lbs. I drip sweat in most classes and am shocked that many others don't. I burn between 350 cals / hr to 400 cals / hr in the beginner class and 400-450 cals / hr in the intermediate class (level 2). I already see results in less then a month. My butt looks rounder (and I have a tiny tush so this is awesome!) and my thighs are looking lean and mean. I'm going to keep taking Bar as long as I can afford it because it is pricey.

Why doesn't Fitness Pal have the Barre classes in their exercise selection? I'd also like to see calories for a beach walk.
