Barry Jay, co-founder of the hugely popular Barry’s Bootcamp, is a big believer in the power of surprise. His notoriously difficult classes toggle between cardio and strength training, but instead of doing endless reps in exactly the same stance, each set will have a slight twist to keep you interested and your body on high-alert. In true bootcamp style, the outspoken instructors are there to keep you moving at double-time. This West Hollywood location is where the BB empire began, and celebs still populate these classes, but if you’re looking for Kim Kardashian, who has been very vocal in her devotion, the Sherman Oaks location (14622 Ventura Blvd) is your best bet. No matter which of the studios you hit, expect lights and music at nightclub levels (lights: low; music: LOUD) that make those 5am classes feel like an after-party!
