Carolyn Williams

Owner of The Bar Method

Carolyn Williams is the owner of The Bar Method Vancouver and The Bar Method West Vancouver. Growing up in San Francisco, Carolyn was always interested in fitness but after graduating from UCLA chose to pursue a career in fashion, becoming a buyer for some of the biggest brands in North America. While foraying into the fashion world, Carolyn kept up her fitness regime, running, training and participating in numerous marathons and eventually a duathlon. She attended her first Bar Method class in the Bay Area and quickly became a devotee. In 2008 Carolyn was recruited by Lululemon to act as their Senior Buyer, making the big move from sunny California to Vancouver. She soon realized how much she missed her favourite workout. Identifying a gap in the market, Carolyn decided to embark on the process of opening a Bar Method studio in Vancouver and begin a very personal and impassioned journey. Teaching classes in her garage has grown into teaching and running two studios in Vancouver, first in Yaletown in 2010 and more recently in West Vancouver. Both studios have a devoted following of fitness gurus, professionals, celebrities and influencers.
