Going home was never quite like this.

“It’s just a family atmosphere,” explained brad Rogers, who with his wife, Tracie, own The BAR School of Athletic Fitness.

“We have a ton of fun with people and everyone knows everyone else, so we have a huge social network, “Rogers added.

That’s part of the reason that The BAR School of Athletic Fitness has been named the “Best Mom and Pop” establishment in the Ahwatukee Foothills for the second consecutive year.

“We’re a family-type place and this shows that,” Rogers explained. “We have people who come in and hang out just because their friends are here. It takes them away from everyday life and our staff wants to make sure that coming in is the best part of their day.”

The BAR has a large middle school program that is just not for athletes and their hybrid program for adult has become a big hit over the past year.

It involves an unorthodox circuit of exercises that include flipping huge truck tires, wielding sledge hammers against tires, swinging on a 40-pound rope or kettle bell training.

“Hybrid has become a cult and we’re getting tremendous results,” Rogers said.

It’s all part, unconventional as it can be, of getting and staying in shape.

“We enjoy helping people achieve want they want,” Rogers added. “At other gyms it’s all about numbers. But we want to make that everyone that comes in gets results and build on that life-changing experience.”

The Rogers also keep in touch with a monthly newsletter and do cross-marketing promotions with other local businesses.

“We take a ton of pride in what we do,” Rogers added. “We consider the Mom and Pop award a great honor and more of a community-type of award more than just an exercise award.”
