The full client experience at Barry’s Bootcamp UWS was very good, achieving our Fit Guide 4-star award.

“The whole club felt unified in design, style, and energy.”
What To Expect From A Barry’s Bootcamp Session
Try a session in the famous ‘red room’ and you’ll see it’s so much more than treadmill running and weights. The red light, the pumping music, and the strong presence of the instructors all come together to create one of the most memorable experiences in fitness.
Offering both 50 and 60-minute sessions, a typical Barry’s class involves coach-led treadmill running alternating with dumbbell and bodyweight strength work on “the floor”.
Each day’s strength work has a different focus, with some days serving up ‘Full Body’ strength and others focusing on specific areas such as ‘Chest, Back and Abs’ and ‘Abs and Ass’. For those that prefer strength work, Barry’s offers the ‘double floor’ option, which skips the treadmill and doubles up on the weights.
The Reception Service
During our pre-visit call, the reception staff did a good job of answering our queries and getting us excited about the visit. The arrival and departure process and interactions were also strong. Asking us more questions would have helped improve the service, especially when we were enquiring about the packages.
The Class Experience
Barry’s Bootcamp Upper West Side received The Fit Guide 4-Star Class Experience Award, making it one of New York's stand-out offerings.
Our evaluators found the coach’s energy to be infectious and motivating. She did a great job of working the room, helping on form and connecting with as many people as she could. Whilst it was a little difficult to follow at times, it was clear to see why the workout has become so popular.
