Episode 22: Joey Gonzalez, CEO Barry's Bootcamp

Joey Gonzalez has what he likes to call a “CEO Cinderella story.” At first intimidated to walk through the doors of Barry’s Bootcamp soon after opening in the late 1990s, he was instantly hooked to how the popular boutique fitness class made him feel. Fast forward to the company’s 20-year anniversary this week,  and the once-student-turned-instructor now sits in the CEO seat, grateful for all of the #hurdlemoments that he’s overcome along the way. In episode 22, Gonzalez tells me how things have changed over the past two decades of Barry’s, his tricks to shifting fear into focus, and the essential advice he’d offer anyone who feels intimidated by starting fresh with their fitness routine.
