Fitness sensation (or so my Facebook friends say) Barry’s Bootcamp is opening in Tribeca. Torly Kid‘s Carol Adams had tipped me to the rumor—she’s a Barry’s fan—and someone at the Chelsea outpost confirmed it. He said it would be opening in three months, but Barry’s PR folks said it’ll be more like “later this year”*—first they have to focus on a new Wainscott location (which
may or may not be a summer pop-up—I got confused might be seasonal). Anwyay! Barry’s Bootcamp will be at One York, the building at Sixth Avenue and Laight; you may know it better as the home of Maserati of Manhattan. The studio and a protein bar will be on the street level; below will be showers and lockers.
There are other bootcamps already operating in these parts. Barry’s Bootcamp, however, says it offers “an affordable, efficient and fun workout in a night club party environment that is nothing like the cliché boot camps”— Snap! Snap! Snap!—”found in every town.”
* UPDATE: They’re aiming for a September launch.
