In an ideal world, we could address our drill sergeants by first name and go out dancing with them on weekends. You can accomplish a little of both with today’s Groupon: for $25, you get three classes at Barry’s Bootcamp fitness studios, plus a waived intro fee, for a total value of $65. The Boot Camp offers more classes than a Dickens novel and each session melts hundreds of calories per cadet. Your Groupon is good at both LA locations.
The eponymous Barry Jay has revolutionized Southern California fitness with his energizing, first-name-basis exercise soldiering. His program achieves the long-elusive dream of a funkier army by combining drill sergeant-style motivation with dance party fun. Barry's one-hour workout distills the most effective exercise techniques into a no-nonsense combination of 30 minutes of cardio and 30 minutes of strength training, including weightlifting and military exercises. It’s like having a hyperactive yet ultra-efficient personal trainer or developing an extraordinarily high metabolism for chiseled sexiness. Barry oversees a platoon of like-minded instructors who add their training and energy to the program that Barry’s been perfecting for 10 years.
Those attractive results, unsurprisingly, have attracted some of Hollywood’s most attractive attractors, including Jessica Alba, Taye Diggs, Jennifer Lopez, Jake Gyllenhaal, Ali Larter, Christina Applegate, Kim Kardashian, David Sutcliffe, and many more—including the owner of these arms of steel. Those interested in weight loss should know that Biggest Loser fitness gurus Bob Harper (a former Barry’s instructor) and Jillian Michaels have been sending the show’s hopefuls to Barry for years. You can get two Groupons per person or multiples as gifts, so draft some soldier friends and get ready to make that Greek statue in your garden feel self-conscious about its body.
