Barry’s Bootcamp: taking HIIT training to a whole new level.
High-intensity interval training (HIIT) has increased in popularity over the years because of the great results people get both physically and mentally. It involves short bursts of intense effort followed by short rest periods. Ideal for anyone wanting to increase their energy, burn fat or get fit efficiently.
And soon you’ll be able to try out a new type of HIIT training in Australia called Barry’s Bootcamp, known to increase your metabolic rate by up to 15%! The Surry Hills gym in Sydney will be the first to open this Saturday 15 September.
Since 1998 Barry’s Bootcamp has grown to over 50 gyms across the globe and is a massive hit among celebrities like the Kardashians, the Beckhams, and Jake Gillenhall, supermodels like Nina Agdal, and anyone keen to have bodies just like them.
With their intense 55-minute interval training sessions known to burn up to 1000 calories, it’s an extremely effective workout. While also increasing your resting metabolic rate to burn fat after your workout, it reduces blood pressure, elevates mood and is incredibly time efficient.
Which is why people are willing to pay upwards of $60 a week for this type of training! Barry’s Bootcamp takes the benefits of HIIT training to a whole new level. Everything they do is backed by scientific research and their trainers are highly skilled and specifically trained for optimal workouts, so you get the biggest bang for your buck.
For instance, their signature red rooms are red for a reason. According to the journal Science, red has been shown to increase mental focus. It’s no surprise then, that Barry’s red rooms are repeatedly touted by members as helping them “to get in the zone”, “be present”, and “in the moment”. According to John A Bargh, a psychology professor at Yale University, “our associations with red influence what we think and do without our awareness” - associations such as passion and danger, enhance metabolism, increase heart rate and improved concentration and endurance. Other studies have also linked increased physical performance with the colour red.
For your chance to experience the Red Room, the physical results and the improved mood, you can now sign up for their new Surry Hills studio. Traditionally, classes have been known to sell out within minutes of the schedule being released, so if you’d like to be one of the first to try them next weekend you can sign up for a class here. Word is they'll also be two more opening in Sydney later this month. While a Melbourne studio will be opening at the beginning of 2019 next year.
