The Bar Method’s signature technique is the fastest and most efficient way to reshape the entire body. Precise isometric exercises keep students’ working “in the muscle” followed by active and passive stretching to lengthen and elongate the area just worked. The result is a graceful, strong dancer-like body, included sculpted arms, flat abs, a lifted seat and elongated thighs, as well as improved posture and body alignment.
The fast pace of the class spikes the heart rate at different intervals to burn calories not just in the classroom, but long after. Students see remarkable results within just a few weeks.
The Bar Method Holmdel will be giving away:
One month of unlimited classes (valued at $220!)

This holiday season, ditch all the stuff, and give the gift of experience! Goldfish Swim School Manalapan and Goldfish Swim School Middletown are offering a limited number of holiday gift packages that include swim lessons and other bonus items. Swim lessons provide essential skills and confidence that last a lifetime. Kids learn safety skills while having fun, making friends, building confidence and learning life lessons. Kids love Goldfish’s fun, tropical environment and 90 degree pools. Parents get the peace of mind knowing that their loved ones are accomplishing an essential life skill based on our proven curriculum. There’s no better gift than that!
A Safer Summer Starts Now!
Swimming is a sport that requires consistency to see progress. By starting in January, kids can see results in time for pool and beach season in June (or that spring break we are already looking forward to). Plus, each child learns new skills differently and at his/her own pace so starting in the winter is the best way to ensure progress by summer. Indoor swimming is a great (and warm) winter activity for kids and parents. Especially in one of Goldfish’s 90 degree pools! There’s scientific evidence that play based learning is the optimal way for kids to learn. The Goldfish Science of SwimPlay® curriculum provides a strong foundation for intellectual and emotional growth, creativity, problem solving and more!
It’s Always Warm at Goldfish!
Goldfish’s warm and inviting swim environment is open all year long and ready to teach your youngsters to swim or tune up their skills– especially nice during these dreary winter months.
Goldfish Swim School Manalapan and Middletown Holiday packages:
TWO Holiday package options:
$109. Enroll in 1 month of group lessons, and get waived annual membership fee, 2 Family Swim passes, goggles and a Bubbles board book OR a $5 Snack Shack credit. Value: $160.
