The class was your usual intense-as-hell, but hurts-so-good shenanigans. We began with speed and incline intervals on the treadmill for about 15 minutes. Next up was floor, we concentrated on biceps, triceps and shoulders and it burned! I was already a sweaty mess at this point, so I was having trouble just holding onto my weights.
Back to the treadmill. This next section is what Barry’s is all about, pushing you to the point of no return. It was about 10 minutes of sprint/recovery, but oh my god, I could barely stand when it was over. I managed to push it to 10.5 MPH for one of the 30 seconds sprints and I nearly collapsed face first on to the treadmill when it was over. I seriously don’t know how people run entire marathons at speeds faster than this.
We finished we leg work using the booty bands and called it a day. By the end, I was a Barry’s believer more than ever! This place will will kick your booty into shape! I’m going to have to splurge on more classes, especially closer to the wedding. While the class is nothing you couldn’t do on your own at the gym, there something about great instructors like Joey who push you so much further than you would ever go by yourself. This is what you can look forward to:
Afterwards I got to meet some of the awesome ladies who work at Women’s Health and Birchbox. They are so fun! I can’t even believe that some of them read my little blog. I feel so honored. After the killer workout, we could relax with manicures by the Color Club and some nice snacks by Barry’s new Fuel Bar, which just hit studios this month.
I grabbed my Birchbox and copy of Women’s Health on the way out!
I’ve given Birchbox subscriptions as gifts, so it was nice to have a box for myself. Look at all those goodies!
In other news, one of my favorite things to write about is good fitness deals, and I think I have one for you today!
4 classes for less than $5 each.
