Adding to the gym craze that's going on in Noho, Barry's Bootcamp is gearing up to open its third New York City studio in the neighborhood sometime this summer. Well & Good spoke with the gym's COO (and hottest trainer nominee) Joey Gonzalez, who called the area "healthy" and a "fitness corridor."
We called both the Chelsea and Tribeca studios to confirm the address, and the closest approximation we got was at Astor Place and Lafayette Street. There's also no exact date for when the location is slated to open.
Barry's is planning to maintain the integrity of the building, said Gonzalez. "It's a beautiful cast iron building, so we're going to try our best to embrace the architecture."
The Noho location will be about the same size as the Chelsea studio, with 25 treadmills and a spacious locker room. The Fuel Bar and retail area will be located just inside the front door, so passersby who aren't taking a class could come in for a smoothie or a pair of branded leggings.
Other gyms in the neighborhood include SoulCycle, David Barton Gym (which includes indoor cycling studio Cyc), Blink Fitness, two (and soon to be three) Crunch Gyms, New York Health and Racquet Club, and a slew of yoga studios such as Yoga Vida.
The chain is also planning to open a branch in Amagansett, which, along with the Hamptons location, brings the total number of NYC-area gyms to five.
