Bodybar Fitness Fort Worth Delivers High-intensity, Low-impact Workouts

By Marina Jokic

With locations in Dallas, Plano, Fort Worth, and Southlake in Texas, Bodybar Fitness raises the bar on traditional Pilates workouts. At Bodybar Fort Worth, owner Kamille McCollum has designed multiple formats that accommodate every experience level. Although Bodybar workouts are considered high intensity, they are still very much accessible to the average person. For those wanting to improve their muscle strength and flexibility without building bulk, Bodybar Fort Worth is the place to visit.

"By engaging in light cardio to start your class, you will burn stored fat throughout the workout as the remainder of our training focuses on building lean, long, strong physiques that are balanced, athletic, and real," McCollum said.

The Pilates-inspired high-intensity classes at Bodybar use the Allegro II Reformer, the latest technology in the field. With each class limited to 12 participants, Bodybar sessions use quick bursts to intensify fitness results, unlike traditional Pilates. The primary goal is to stimulate the cardiovascular systems while expending each muscle group one at a time. Cardio is followed by time-tested Pilates movements and holds to build strong, lean muscle.

"We believe that small group training is the best way to work out because you benefit from a lot of attention from the instructors and the camaraderie that comes from working out with others," McCollum said.

Established in 2016, the Fort Worth location is known for its closely knit community of athletes. Trainers at Bodybar are accepting of all fitness levels and backgrounds and devoted to helping students reach their goals. Even within one class, a workout can be specifically tailored to fit the needs and abilities of an individual without holding back the rest of the group. McCollum, herself a parent, knows very well the challenges of raising a family while staying fit. There are many specialized and short exercises for new mothers and those with unforgiving schedules that pack the most punch in a limited amount of time.

With twelve different classes, Bodybar offers truly diverse total body workouts. The Reformer is their signature class, focusing on stamina, lean muscle, balance, and flexibility. If you are completely new to Pilates, McCollum recommends the slower-paced Bodybar Basics that focuses on form and technique. A faster-paced class, the Reformer Jump uses the jump board for an added cardio element that gets your heart going with minimum impact on your knees. Other workouts include the restorative Stretch and Release, Lower Body Burn, and Abs and Arms.

"We take pride in the family-like feel of our studio and strive to create a warm and inviting atmosphere for everyone," McCollum said. "[The] favorite thing about my job is the people I meet and the relationships I have been able to build with our clients."
