Stay in the Loop


Another fitness chain is setting up shop in the North Loop neighborhood.

Los Angeles-based Barry’s Bootcamp will open a new location at 701 Washington Avenue N in early 2020. The new location will be located on the ground floor of the Loose-Wiles building in a space at the back of the building that fronts N 7th Avenue. The space most recently was home to offices before it was vacated early last year.

If you’re not familiar with Barry’s Bootcamp, we’ll take a moment to fill you in.

Barry’s Bootcamp is the original high intensity interval workout. Those who work out at Barry’s Bootcamp can burn 1000+ calories during one of their 50-60-minute sessions. The sessions are instructor led and include cardio and weight training. Barry’s physical workout room is called the “Red Room” and its filled with red lights, beat driven music and an intense energy. Designed by DXU Architects, Minneapolis’ Barry’s Bootcamp will feature ample space for fitness classes, women’s and men’s locker rooms and a large lobby that will also have a Fuel Bar. The Fuel Bar operates as Barry’s “health and wellness hub” and will serve customized shakes, with most shakes being priced in the $9 to $11 range, along with grab and go items.

The North Loop location will be the Barry’s Bootcamp’s first Minnesota location. Currently there are over 50 Barry Bootcamp locations spread across 14 states and nine different countries. The company is currently in an expansion mode with a significant number of new locations in the works. At the moment the closest Barry’s Bootcamp location to Minneapolis is located in Chicago.

Barry’s Bootcamp is one of the latest fitness chains to open in the North Loop. In 2018 Farrell’s Extreme Bodyshaping opened on the ground floor of Variant and this past spring Basecamp Fitness opened on the ground floor of Maverick. Next year New York City-based Soul Cycle will also open a location in Minneapolis, however the exact location has yet to be announced… but don’t worry, we’re working on it.

Barry’s Bootcamp will be located at 701 Washington Avenue N in Suite 100 and is anticipated to open in early 2020
