Famous for its 55-minute workouts and worldwide following, Barry's Bootcamp has become a fitness heavyweight since first setting up shop in West Hollywood back in 1998 — and now it's bringing its studios to Australia.

From tomorrow, September 15, Sydneysiders will be able to put themselves through Barry's high-intensity interval training sessions in Surry Hills. It'll be the company's first Aussie studio, but not its last — Barry's will launch its flagship Martin Place studio this October, and in early 2019 it will launch another yet-to-be-revealed Sydney CBD spot and its first Melbourne location.

If you're a gym junkie, celebrity obsessive or just familiar with the term "Barry's body", then you'll have heard of Barry's. Already active in 18 cities around the globe — including Los Angeles, New York, Milan, London and Dubai — it's claimed that the studio's sessions burn over 4000 kilojoules. That's thanks to a regimented program that incorporates 25 minutes of treadmill work, 25 minutes of strength and conditioning with free weights and resistance bands, and then a five-minute cool-down. The focus of each class changes daily across Barry's weekly schedule, with each session targeting a different muscle group.

As extra motivation, Barry's classes are held in high-energy red rooms, complete with mood lighting and the kind of music you're more likely to hear in a nightclub. Adding to the vibe, each location features its own bar serving up locally designed shakes and smoothies — and patrons will also be able to buy workout outfits onsite.

As expected, the world-renowned bootcamp class comes with hefty price tag — $36 a pop. You could, alternatively, purchase a 50-class pack for $1550, which works out at $31 a class.

Find Barry's Bootcamp at 66-72 Reservoir Street, Surry Hills from Saturday, September 15. Open 5am–8pm Mon–Fri, 7am–3pm Sat and 8am–3pm Sun.
