Barry’s Buddies Zach Martin and Becca Tobin Martin are well-known faces around Barry’s in Los Angeles. You may also recognize Becca’s face from a certain former FOX TV show called “Glee,” on which she played Kitty Wilde for two seasons.
The couple married this past December in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, in a ceremony officiated by Becca’s co-star, Jane Lynch. And although they began their Barry’s journeys in different cities, working out in the red room together has been one extra-curricular activity that’s brought them even closer.
We caught up with this newlywed husband and wife over one of their weekend workouts to chat about what keeps them coming back for more.
