Fans of The Challenge will be able to work out with some of their favorite competitors from the show in a brand new partnership involving MTV and Barry’s!
A number of stars from MTV’s The Challenge: Double Agents will be part of special Challenge-themed workouts, which will run right up and into the premiere episode.
Here are more details of which Double Agents cast members will be leading the workouts and how to participate in them.
Barrys teaming up with MTV for Challenge-themed workouts
Based on Us Weekly’s exclusive report, the Challenge-themed workouts will come thanks to a partnership formed between MTV and Barry’s – the original strength and cardio interval fitness experience.
Barry’s, also known as The Best Workout in the World, is a strength and cardio interval fitness experience first founded in 1998. They offer fitness classes that alternate between weight workouts and treadmill running. Each day’s classes spotlights a different muscle group with the goal to reduce potential injuries while maximizing results.
There will be a total of seven workouts hosted on Barry’s first-ever digital platform called Barry’s At-Home. The first of them will come on Friday, December 4, with more arriving right up and into the Double Agents premiere on MTV.
Among The Challenge: Double Agents cast members who will be participating are fan-favorites Nany Gonzalez, Nelson Thomas, Tori Deal, and Cory Wharton, as well as rookie competitor Natalie Anderson.
Following some of the classes, fans will also get the opportunity to interact with The Challenge stars during Q&A sessions.
Of the competitors, Tori recently announced her breakup with Jordan Wiseley after the couple had been engaged for over a year. Cory’s workout will take place as the first episode of Season 36 is underway, so fans are likely to have many burning questions for him!
