Bar Method Leawood
Owner Instructor Hoddy Potter comes to the Kansas City Area after teaching in Bar Method's founders Burr Leonard and Carl Diehl's flagship studio in San Francisco. A native of San Francisco, Hoddy graduated from the College of William and Mary and moved to her home town to enter law school. She practiced law at a national top 20 law firm with an emphasis in intellectual property and employment and law for six years.
In 2003, Hoddy discovered the Bar Method. She quickly became addicted to the Bar Method's effective results and loved the welcoming community that Bar Method created for her. After one year of being a client, she began working in the studio and in 2006 was asked co-founder Carl Diehl to train as an instructor with Burr Leonard, creator and co-founder. Hoddy began taught classes, while maintaining a full time career as an attorney. She had her first son in the winter of 2008 and credits the Bar Method for getting back in fighting form in less than a month. In 2010, Hoddy was approached by Leonard to star in and lead the Bar Method's Pregnancy Workout DVD. Reviewers have raved that "it's safe, effective, and the instructor makes it really fun for mom and baby." Hoddy gave birth to twins two months after shooting the DVD. Hoddy, her husband, and her three young children moved back to her husband's home state of Kansas. She is thrilled to bring the Bar Method technique to the Kansas City Area to change bodies one lifted seat at a time and loves the amazing impact Bar Method has had thus far!
