BBG Bay Area / Sweat SF Meetup February

meetuppic-1A lot of people ask what BBG stands for, especially those who are new to the workout or have never heard of it before. And while the workout is intended to stand for “bikini body guide,” I really think it stands for BADASS BABES & GUYS! Because over 100 of us got together, killed our workout, and fostered a great sense of community that only burpees and a whole lot of sweat can bring!

The workout was held again at the beautiful Bay Club gymnasium, and we had so much fun with a circuit workout that included push-ups, burpees, squats, mountain climbers, and a whole lot of fun!

The day’s workout was created by Mickaela Roxas of Plants and Planks, and she took the best of Kayla Itsines’ exercises from her Sweat app, and compiled them into a full body workout. We had a great time working out together!

Special thank you to Women’s Best for sponsoring protein powder, shakers, and goodies (cookies, chocolates, wafers, BCAA’s, protein creme, and  more) for our attendees! They generously provided all of this workout fuel for 100 attendees to keep us motivated and going strong! Their protein powder and BCAA’s are the only supplements I am currently taking, and I would recommend them for everyone! We are so grateful to have them as a sponsor, and I’m so happy that our attendees got to try the products.

Also thank you to Bay Club San Francisco for their generous hospitality. For those of you who haven’t tried out the club and are local to the SF Bay Area, you totally should! It’s currently my gym (I’m a member) – and I would love to work out with you there! Also, you can join our Facebook group here, where you can download a free 3-day pass to try out the gym. The gym amenities are beautiful, including a luxurious locker room, weight room, multiple cardio rooms, as well as yoga and pilates!

Also thank you to Elizabeth Griffin for being our official event photographer! Here are some of the photos from the event! Click here for the full album!

Also thank you to Jeremy Wong of Where’s the Film Productions for the amazing video footage!

Peace, love and burpees,

Sweat San Francisco Holiday Meetup

I love our San Francisco fitness community! It’s an amazing thing when a group of women come together not only to sweat, but to forge friendships and build community. When we first started, we had a small gathering of 25 women interested in fitness, and now, we have over 1,000 women in our Facebook group!

This holiday season, we hosted a group fitness meetup sponsored by the Bay Club San Francisco in their indoor gymnasium. This beautiful gym is home to everything you need for a killer workout including a state-of-the-art weight room, basketball courts, squash and racquetball courts, yoga, pilates, and even an area where you can take a cycling class with your own bicycle. I recently joined this gym, and I am so proud to host our group here as well as call this my fitness home.

I had such blast co-leading this workout with my fearless team members Mickey, Brooke, Maddie, and Jeanette, and Wendy! We made the most out of this beautiful space with a killer yet fun workout! We did superman planks, jump lunges, squats, drop push-ups, burpees, and more (full workout at the bottom of this post)!

Everyone pushed themselves hard, and did an amazing job. We were so impressed that over 100 people in the Bay Area brought their A-game and killed their workout! And not only did we sweat, but we had fun, forged new friendships and got reacquainted with old ones.

We have the most amazing community, and we are so grateful to be a part of such an amazing crew. Thank you to all of our friends who came out to sweat, and we hope to meet new faces at the next one!

We also couldn’t have done it without our sponsors. We only support brands that we truly love working with, and couldn’t have asked for a better lineup! THANK YOU to everyone below for all of your support!
