I finally got to try Barry's Bootcamp during my last visit to New York, the much-talked-about fitness studio that mixes strength training with treadmill intervals. The high-intensity workout kicked my butt, and I loved how much the instructor mixed things up — going back and forth between the treadmill and strength-training floor kept me from getting bored. It also kept me from giving up — the moment I wanted to quit, it was time for a switch!
With studios all over the world, I've been crossing my fingers that Barry's would make its way to San Francisco, and that time has come. The dust is almost gone from construction, and the SF studio is slated to open later this month. You can bet that I'll be one the first students in class.
