About Our Studio.

The Bar Method Fairfield is the 76th studio in the country, and the first in Connecticut! It’s also the first location to be co-owned by a team of sisters, Bridget McBride and Caitlin Giambalvo.

Bridget began her career with the Bar Method in 2008 when she began teaching in Hermosa Beach, CA. After a short time she knew she wanted to be a studio owner, so she quit her job as a TV host to fulfill her new dream. Getting her sister on board was a no-brainer, as they both grew up as health-conscious fitness buffs.

Caitlin’s love affair with Bar occurred after taking just one of Bridget’s classes–she was instantly hooked and didn’t hesitate when her sister informed her of her studio plans. She jumped at the chance to quit her corporate job for such a rewarding and unique career opportunity.  Plus–it involved Bridget moving back to their hometown to do it, which was a win-win in her book.

Both women are mothers, and are eager to grow their family while cultivating a business that they are so passionate about. Their staff is made up of strong, beautiful and highly-trained women who are very knowledgable about the human anatomy and keeping clients safe while performing challenging low-impact exercises. They may look pretty…but they’ll work your seat off!

“We consider ourselves a family. A family that likes to work out…a lot!”
