For decades, the Marina Safeway —better known as the Dateway— has been one of San Francisco's notorious pickup spots; it was even memorialized in Armistead Maupin's Tales of City. Sure, those were the days before Tinder and Grindr and OKCupid and… you get the idea. But there's something quaint about searching for lettuce and love at the same time. Now, Barry's Bootcamp is giving San Francisco's fitness buffs a chance to apply the same breed of expediency to their workout routines. Yes, folks: Barry's has just announced Singles Night.
Granted, cruising the gym for hotties predates pushups, but your run-of-the-(tread)mill gym ogling requires a certain level of discretion. And who has time for that? Plus —as we've previously discussed— Barry's clients (and trainers) are a ridiculously attractive crew.
On Thursday, August 7, Barry's is setting aside the 6:40 pm class to let 40 hot singles find sweat and love (or lust) under the warm red studio lights. Think of it as the cardio version of the Tunnel of Love. To reserve your spot, call the studio at 415-546-3996.
And if August 7 doesn't work for you —or you want to squeeze in another sweat session before Singles Night— you can still join our free Racked Fit Club class at Barry's on July 29. To join, create a profile here, and send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line "Barry's Fit Club," and your name in the body.
