Shape Trainer of the Month: Barry Ennis
About: Having trained from a young age to become a pro baseball player, Barry focused much of his training towards both strength and cardiovascular work, a path that eventually ended up with him doing Yoga. Over time he began to see the benefits in terms of both mental focus and core strength and after university, became a certified Vinyasa instructor in 2007, specifically assisting professional athletes, based in Los Angeles. Coaching a number of league teams, he eventually packed up and moved to India to complete a course in Vedanta philosophy, effectively the mental process behind pursuing success while maintaining peace of mind.
Barry finally moved to Dubai to teach a beach boot camp programme in JBR in 2011, however having heard about Flywheel, decided to go to New York to train at the original Flywheel centre in June 2012. Training with all the master instructors, Barry learned the Flywheel method, after which he returned to Dubai to open Flywheel in September 2012.
In his own words.. “Flywheel is a fitness experience like no other. Taking place in a dark room with amazing music, you have the ability to not only track your own performance and see yourself improve but also compete against other riders in the room if you choose. Instructors take music requests! Each class is guaranteed to be totally different from the one before.”
