Dubbed ‘The Best Workout in the World’, Barry’s famous Bootcamp classes are renowned for their fast pace, pumping music and high energy. Their handsome trainers don’t go unnoticed either and with their combined years of training, and varied backgrounds, are a definite force to be reckoned with. Favoured by A-Listers and city workers alike, this international phenomenon is set to carry on growing and The Barry’s Boys will continue to make sweat sexy.

Connor Minney: Connor trained as a professional dancer at London Studio Centre, but soon realised that presenting and hosting was where he saw himself. After graduating, Connor pursued his love of fitness and swapped the jazz shoes for running shoes when he joined the team at Barry's Bootcamp. He now instructs the intense Barry's classes as well as presenting on the side. Food, Fitness and Fashion are Connor's passions; something he explores through his great Instagram. As he likes to say, 'Abs are made in two places, the kitchen and my classes! So follow Mr Minney on Instagram and get your ass to class!'
Sandy Macaskikl: Sandy grew up in the outdoors, playing any sport that has a ball. He qualified as a tennis coach, sub aqua instructor and football coach, all before turning 18, and has since trained supermodels, A-list celebrities, even special forces soldiers, to complete first-timers. Oh, and in case anyone tried to accuse him of slacking, he also spent four years covering elite sport for The Daily Telegraph and, briefly, The New York Times, before partnering with his brother James to bring Barry’s Bootcamp to London. Sandy’s classes are all about combining an eye for technique and movement that has been developed through years of professional tennis coaching with a hands-on teaching style and high-octane playlists. In addition to Barry's, he is an Elite trainer for Nike, you can also find him contributing on fitness subjects in the national press, in titles such as Elle, Women’s Fitness and Health & Fitness.
Jay Copley: Jay wants to live in a world where proteins shakes and gym memberships are free, McDonald's didn't exist and excessive sweating in the gym was deemed 'attractive'. As a former royal marine turned person trainer, Jay worked for some of London’s top personal training studios, before setting up his own PT business and joining the Barry's Bootcamp Team. He has built himself up as a key member at Barry’s, teaching sold out classes and events. He was later recognised by PUMA as an elite trainer and quickly singed to become a master trainer. When he’s not moulding the average bodies of London into lean athletes, you can find him in pretty much any gym in East London charging around with a pair of dumbbells in his hand, gangsta rap blaring into his ears...but all with a friendly smile on his face!
