MANHATTAN – The Upper East Side fitness community is gaining a state of the art Barry’s Bootcamp on East 86th street between Second and Third Avenue– across the street from Fairway. As this will be the second Barry’s Bootcamp in the neighborhood, the first location is located in Lenox Hill on Second Avenue between East 63rd and 64th street, this studio will serve primarily the Carnegie Hill and Yorkville residents.

While construction is still underway– you can see workers throughout the space on any given day– and the exterior signage went up today, not much information has been released on Barry’s website.

However, Upper East Site has learned the Bootcamp will open next month, in January, though a firm grand opening date hasn’t been set.

Here’s what to expect in the new Barry’s location.

What is Barry’s Bootcamp 

Barry’s Bootcamp is an all-encompassing workout that lasts anywhere from 45 minutes to an hour. Workouts combine high-intensity interval training (HIIT), strength training, and cardio in one session. 

The workouts occur in the named ‘red room’ where dimmed red lights, pump-up music, and various pieces of equipment (bikes, treadmills, free weights, and more) are prepped at each station.
