We had the good fortune of connecting with Alysia Grabiner and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Alysia, what do you attribute your success to?
The most important factor behind the success of the studios is all about mindset! My business partner Kat Adkins and I strongly believe in the power of hard work and a positive outlook. Owning 3 studios brings on constant challenges and you can’t let them get the best of you or slow you down. We hustle with a smile and when things come our way we stay calm, collected and figure out how to move forward. Most recently we have come to the biggest challenge of our career with being forced to shut down our studios due to Covid-19. We luckily were a few days ahead of it and already had a streaming page locked and loaded and we are working harder than we ever have to keep our community going on an online platform and it’s going really well. The challenge of keeping the studios going and our community connected during this time has been rewarding!

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Owning workout studios in Los Angeles is challenging. There is a lot of competition and you have to continue to innovate and lead your teams to excellence. We started with our first location, The Bar Method Studio City. Kat and I were clear in what we wanted to create before we opened our doors. Our expectations for our team, the vibe of our studio and the classes that we would deliver were specific. We wanted an encouraging space where everyone felt welcome and everyone cheered each other on. A true community. In Los Angeles, it’s easy to feel intimidated walking into a group fitness studio. We also hire the most wonderfully skilled teachers on the planet that have a passion and love for what they are doing. We went on to own The Bar Method Brentwood and then a 3rd location in West Los Angeles.

Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
We have to give thanks to the method that we represent. The Bar Method was created and founded by Burr Leonard who is an incredible inspiration to Kat and I. She has created a safe and highly effective workout method that we are proud to teach. Working alongside her and delivering the workout method that she created is an honor.
