Farmington — BODYBAR Pilates (BODYBAR), known for its use of core Pilates principles with a modern twist, will officially open on Aug. 16 in Farmington at 180 North Union Avenue at Station Park.

“I am more than eager to finally open our doors to the Farmington community,” said Van Emmerik, who joins the BODYBAR team with a robust background in sales, hospitality and an interest in health and wellness. “BODYBAR provides the opportunity to truly create a close-knit community, in addition to offering a high-quality workout anyone can do. We welcome everyone to stop by during our grand opening events to say “cheers” with us!”
