1 Barry’s Bootcamp BostonBarry's Bootcamp Boston
One of the best ways to quickly kick your holiday body into shape is with Barry’s Bootcamp. An hour long class here focuses on specific areas each day. For example, on Mondays, the class is all about arms and abs while on Wednesdays, you will be working your chest, back and abs. Cardiovascular treadmill routines for up to 30 minutes comprise half the class while the rest of the hour is spent using free weights, resistance bands, medicine balls and other fitness equipment, all while the music keeps you pumping.

If indoor cycling seems a little more your speed, Flywheel Sports has just the class for you. Each class is as competitive as you want it to be so you can vie for the title in a 30-, 45- or 60-second race or just simply sit back and enjoy the ride. For 45 minutes, you can pedal your heart out in stadium style seating and view your results directly from your seat.
