Below are my favorite items I keep in my gym bag at all times. As a personal trainer, I need to always prepared and ready to get my work on. Let’s dive in:

Jump Rope

One of my favorite forms of cardio! Can bring it with you anywhere you go and so many different ways to put it to use.

Powerbeats Wireless

Can’t get through a workout without some dope music! Whether you’re hitting a bag, sprints on a treadmill, or even a brisk walk around the city, a little rap will carry you to new heights


All you need is a carpet or hard wood floor and these bad boys can turn anything into a full body workout!

Hyperice Vyper 2.0

Top of the line vibrating foam roller that helps with recovery. I don’t go anywhere without it.


Rogue back Brave

Help relive pressure in my lower back when I’m doing power/ complex lifts.


Try you’re best to eat as clean and as often as you can (stay away from processed foods!)

If you’re looking to burn off some extra calories this winter and get into bikini/board shorts shape by summer, come see me at Barry’s Bootcamp! Fun, intense and effective!
