Barry’s Bootcamp

Join the Barry’s Bootcamp “Run It” team as we run this year’s Bay to Breakers event (it’s only 7.5 miles) on Sunday May 18th.  Run It team captains Tommy Tessier and Chris Reid will be leading the charge!!  We are all going to meet at Barry’s flagship location on King Street between 3rd and 4th at 7am and head over to the starting line together.  The $80.00 fee covers event registration ($64) and costumes!

Barry’s will be providing everyone with fun costumes so we can make a statement to show everyone what we’ve got!  In addition, our team has a little side bet going with the Fitbit team about who can run this the fastest.  If we win, we will get fitbits (type to be determined), if they win, they get Barry’s classes so let’s get this kicked into high gear people!

Simply buy a ticket with this link and we will see you at Barry’s to get “costumed up”!

Erica Stenz was kind enough to model our costumes (wristbands, headbands and socks).

P.S. – wear your Barry’s shirt/tank or buy one that morning!

Barry’s Bootcamp shows real life success

Mike Janetakos is walking success story for Barry’s Bootcamp and how it has literally changed his life! Here he talks about his first experience with Barry’s Boot camp

“I was a month and a half into my weight loss journey and starting to get bored from my workouts when I saw a sign go up for Barry’s Bootcamp in Boston. I walked by the building every day, wondering what it was and when it was opening. Finally, at the end of September, I signed up for classes not knowing what to expect (other than a few video clips online). I was looking for something challenging, yet engaging (can you tell I am in HR?). My first class was with Noah and I thought I was going to collapse. I remember thinking, “What the hell did I get myself into for 30 classes?!” I left the class barely able to walk! I was not prepared for that kind of intensity. I went back the following week after a 6 day break and haven’t looked back since”

How his experience has change his life

“What I love most about the classes is that they are always different. The treadmill and floor sessions constantly challenge you. When I first started, I could only do 4-6 pushups in 1 minute. Now I can do 34! My plank before was only about 6 seconds — now about 45 seconds. I could barely sprint at a 7.0 when I started and now I can do 30-35 second sprints at a 12.5 without holding to the treadmill in most cases. These changes continue to drive me to succeed. Diamond push-ups were my pitfall. I could not even do one at the beginning. Now I can do about 7 diamond push-ups in about minute. It’s a work in progress, but a huge leap for me!

Barry’s Bootcamp Boston has become a positive addiction in my life. I enjoy seeing all of the friendly staff every time I visit and love talking to all of the bootcampers I have become friendly with. I look forward to the continued challenges and changes to my body in the journey ahead.

I am excited about my appearance for the first time in many years. What satisfies me most and keeps me engaged, is the progress I have made and how people have noticed the success. My parents are thrilled at how far I have come and are happy that I am on a path of improving my health and wellness. My peers at Barry’s have also noticed. People I have never had conversations with have come up to me and said, “Wow! You look great! What a change!” When a complete stranger says this, it makes me feel good and makes me want to keep going even more.”

Ryan Sasson

Thanks for the feedback Mike! I think everyone loves to read about such a huge success like yours and how this can only make you and your life better!
