You've been biting your nails since we announced a Barry's Bootcamp opening in Midtown and we finally have an update for you. The studio, known best for its grinding interval training workouts (it's been dubbed "The Best Workout in the World") and mysteriously good looking trainers, will be opening on November 7th just in time for you to trim down for the holidays (or just counteract that massive Thanksgiving meal you're set to devour).
"With the success and excitement of the Miami Beach location, opening in Midtown is the logical next step," says Derek DeGrazio, Partner and Lead Instructor, plus one of our Hottest Trainer contestants this year. This opening signals a crawl; About two months ago, Barry's announced it would be opening in Aventura, Miami's next fitness-obsessed neighborhood.
You can expect 20 custom Woodway treadmills, high quality exercise equipment like "booty bands" and weights, and plenty of delicious smoothies and protein shakes from Barry's Fuel Bar, which makes the gym one of the most gourmet in Miami. Plus, it's the only Barry's Bootcamp with an outdoor patio, where you can
secretly stare at all the hot trainers just chill after a grueling 60-minute workout.
