This is something that requires consistent efforts, dedication and proper guidance of a nutritionist or a diet expert. You simply cannot download a random diet plan from the internet or pick up a workout CD from Walmart with best ratings and follow it blindly, you need something that is going to push you towards achieving your goals in full potential – something a bit more substantial, something like Barry's Bootcamp.

What Makes Barry’s Bootcamp Different?
Barry’s Bootcamp is famous across the globe for its signature red lights and loud blaring music during the workout sessions. They usually provide earplugs for those who do not like very loud music but the thing is music with the lights together brings in so much more energy to the exercise floor. The instructors are super resourceful and have excellent motivating skills. They just never let you give up on yourself and your body. At Barry’s, they do not believe on ‘body envy’; they rather believe in making your body the best it ever can be. These traits are what makes them different than all other bootcamps in the world.
The workouts at Barry’s bootcamps are HIT, high intensity workouts. Each workout session consists of 60 minutes; high intensity cardio is done on the treadmill and combined with strength training. This combination is proven to work for weight loss while toning the body. It also guarantees that you only lose body fat during cardio session and not lean muscles. Barry’s also incorporates body exercises that speed up your metabolism rate, this way your body burns fat when you are not even working out.
Barry's Fuel Bar:
Your work out is only as effective as your nutrition!
Barry's boasts a fuel bar where bootcampers can pick up a healthy (and mind-blowingly delicious) post- workout protein shake to maximize their efforts in the gym. I always go there to get my smoothie, even when I'm not taking a class. ACAI Berry is one of my favorites.
