If you want to go to the best of San Francisco’s specialized high-end workout spots, head to Barry’s Bootcamp in SOMA.
A boutique fitness craze has recently taken San Francisco by storm, and if you want to go to the best of the specialized high-end workout spots, you should head to Barry’s Bootcamp in SOMA. Owner Adam Shane is a wildly friendly guy who has spent the last year creating a welcoming community at Barry’s. Not only is Shane super nice, he and his staff are also a good-looking and well-toned crew. The workout here is 55 minutes of high-intensity interval training; you’ll start either on the treadmill or on the floor (with weights) and alternate back and forth between the two areas. It’s an intense and difficult routine, but the dark club-like lighting, fun dance music and energetic instructors shouting positive encouragement all help you survive—and hopefully thrive—during the workout. It’s definitely a masochistic and expensive endeavor (each class is $30), but if you can afford it, your body and brain will thank you. You really do feel fitter after even one of Barry’s sweat sessions.
