Barry’s Bootcamp kicked off the boutique fitness trend way before group workouts were a thing—all the way back in 1998, the original Barry was whipping clients into shape at his treadmill-and-weight workout classes.
Since then, the Barry’s Bootcamp has expanded from one tiny studio in Weho to 27 locations across the globe—from New York to London to Miami. But it’s studio number 28 that’s really got fitness enthusiasts excited. Los Angeles, prepare yourself for Barry’s Bootcamp Venice.
The 8,000+ square foot Lincoln Boulevard location is one the fitness brand’s biggest, boasting two floors in an industrial-style building complete with the Barry’s Bootcamp Fuel Bar, a Barry’s clothing boutique, a GIF photo booth (really, the only piece of equipment you’ll ever need), and naturally men’s and women’s locker rooms decked with multiple showers and Malin + Goetz products.
But the most exciting thing about the new location isn’t the organic shampoo (although we’re all about that peppermint scent!)—it’s the “Stretch Lounge,” a designated area for clients to warm up or cool down before and after Barry’s hour-long classes. It’s such a genius idea, and so necessary. Most workout studios don’t have enough space for clients to stretch and wind down, which is necessary for preventing injuries. We’re looking forward to getting down with the foam roller after a particularly rough leg day.
Barry’s has also partnered with famed street artist, designer and Founder of the #WHATLIFTSYOU movement, Kelsey Montague to add her signature interactive street art to the side of the Venice studio. Beautiful and badass? Welcome to the new Barry’s Bootcamp!
