At over 5,714 square feet, the studio will be located just steps away above the Dupont Circle metro station and in the heart of one of the most vibrant neighborhoods to live, work and play within the nation’s capital. The historical art deco building was designed by architect Mihran Mesrobian (whose work also includes Washington, D.C. landmarks such as The Hay-Adams, The Carlton Hotel and Wardman Tower). The studio will accommodate up to 53 participants, a lifestyle clothing boutique selling Barry’s original workout and athleisure apparel (including exclusive Washington, D.C. pieces); and signature Fuel Bar, serving Barry’s own recipes of healthy and energizing smoothies and snacks designed to help clients reach their goals. The location will also house a playful selfie wall to accommodate pre and post-workout photos. Additional amenities include full men’s and women’s locker rooms stocked with Oribe products.

“Washington, D.C is a fantastic (and fit!) city – we’ve been inundated with requests from people to open here. I can’t wait to watch the Barry’s community take shape and grow,” said Joey Gonzalez, CEO of Barry’s Bootcamp.

Barry’s Washington, D.C. is located at 1345 19th Street N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036. Classes at Barry’s Bootcamp Washington, D.C. cost $34 (class packages also available).

The Barry’s Bootcamp Experience: Barry’s is the original cardio & strength interval workout. Immersive & high energy, it’s the fastest & most fun way to get lean & hard! Nearly twenty years ago, the brand innovated group fitness by creating an efficient, immersive and transformative hour-long workout experience. Over 50,000 members of the Barry’s community visit the studios each week and use the brand’s signature method to burn fat, tone muscle and push themselves to reach their physical and mental potential. Today Barry’s is credited as the “best workout in the world!”

Founded in Los Angeles in 1998, Barry’s was conceived to make getting into the best shape of your life possible and fun! Barry’s signature method utilizes the most effective combination of High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) by incorporating 20-25 minutes of interval-based cardiovascular routines on treadmills with 20-25 minutes of strength training using free weights, resistance bands, and more. The workout is results driven–pushing participants to their physical and mental limits–and efficient. A 50-minute class incinerates fat, burns up to 1,000 calories, and releases stress.

Barry’s is a one-stop signature class to a leaner and harder body, and ends the frustration of trying to pack multiple cardio and strength training workouts into an overscheduled week. Additionally, the studio calendar is uniquely customized to focus on a different body part each day of the week, offering participants a complete, full body fitness regime. Barry’s promises that no class is ever the same so participants never plateau.

Barry’s classes are held in dim lit, red studios to motivating playlists. The room adds an element of excitement to the workout while enabling participants to dig deeper and lose themselves in the physical moment. Barry’s instructors coach and motivate the group to run and work harder than they ever thought possible. Working side by side as a community creates strong bonds between participants who inspire, support, and hold each other accountable inside and outside of the studio.

With over thirty locations worldwide, including studios in Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago, London and Dubai, Barry’s Bootcamp has established a cult-like following across the globe. Professional athletes, editors, captains of Industry, and A-list celebrities are all familiar faces amongst the Barry’s community.

Barry’s is also a popular lifestyle brand with its own performance and athleisure clothing line and Fuel Bar, serving signature smoothies and healthy snacks engineered to take the guess work out of post-workout recovery nutrition.

The Barry’s workout has innovated the fitness landscape by offering an efficient, effective, and transformative group fitness experience unlike any other.”
