I Finally Went to Barry’s!

I can finally check one class off my Workout Bucket List! Yesterday I finally went to Barry’s Bootcamp! To say I loved this class would be an understatement. LOVE LOVE LOVE is more like it!

Barry's Bootcamp

Despite the hefty cost, $28 per class, I am going to try to make this a normal part of my workout routine. That is how much I loved it.

The class started on Barry’s awesome treadmills. These machines are like 1,000 times better than the ones I am used to running on at the gym. The class started with  a brief warm up jog followed by sprint/walk intervals with no incline then we tok it up a notch and completed sprint/walk intervals with an incline. I was already drenched with sweat and we were less than 15 minutes into class.

After the sprints we moved on to hill climbs. Usually my hill climbs are at a slow jogging (aka walking) pace but the Barry’s instructor, also named Emily, pushed us to run those hills. Then it was time for dynamic mode…I didn’t even know this was until the class.

Apparently some treadmills have this torturous mode call dynamic mode where you and only you have to make the belt move. I felt like I was doing mountain climbers but running at the same time…poor description, I know, I guess you just have to go to Barry’s to understand what I’m talking about.

The class I went to was focused on butt and legs so after our treadmill work was done it was time for endless squats and lunges. With weights. I used 15lb-ers and boy am I feeling it in my butt today! Best kind of pain.

If you couldn’t tell, I loved this class and I loved the instructor too (not just because we have the same name). She was encouraging yet tough and had great energy through the lunch-time class. I’m so excited I finally checked this class off my bucket list!
