Congrats on 1,000 Classes, Selma!

Blog - Tribe Milestones

We are SO proud to give one of our Tribe members a BBS shout out and say CONGRATULATIONS on hitting the 1,000 class milestone! This is such a huge accomplishment! To put it into perspective, we have been open for just over 4 years - or 1,460 days - and they have walked through our door and taken class on 1,000 of them. WOW!

Congrats to Selma for your dedication to yourself, your fitness journey and the BBS Tribe. We are so lucky to have you and we are better because of you. You are a constant source of inspiration and motivation to the rest of our Tribe, each and every one of our instructors and front desk team.

We asked Selma what made her push for 1,000 classes and her response is really the reason we do what we do. She told us "it has never been the number for me and I have never counted my classes! What motivates me is the energy & strength I feel after each class!". Selma also mentioned that "the teachers are amazing and have inspired me to push myself to places I never ever thought I could go! There is nothing more beautiful than when you prove to yourself how strong you are!". We couldn't have said it better ourselves.

Our community partner, Total Skincare Centre, has generously gifted Selma with a complimentary 90 minute facial and gift basket. You earned it! A big thanks to TSC for helping us celebrate our Tribe and this incredible milestone.

XO,
BBS Team

The first day of summer has come and gone, the sun has been shining and you powerhouses have still been hitting the barre. You may remember from last year, and if not then you're in for a treat, the BBS Summer Challenge is back and better than before. 

Welcome to the BBS Summer Challenge! Running from July 24 to August 22. The challenge is simple: take 30 classes in 30 days. Miss a class or two? No problem! That’s where the BBS Bucket List comes in. There are 10 mini challenges on the Bucket List and you have 6 opportunities to redeem them as an extra “check” on the board. We’re kicking it old school and are using the honour system for these extra challenges. Complete one, let us know, show us a pic on social media if you have one and mark yourself off!

Successfully complete the challenge by August 22 and you will be entered into the draw for one of the many sweet prizes we have up for grabs! 

Now that you are amped up and ready to take part in the BBS Summer Challenge, what do you have to do? Register now, at the studio you frequent most often - that's where your name will be on the board (classes count at both studios). 

The Bucket List will be posted at both studios, but here’s a downloadable link in case you’d like to keep it handy for yourself.

Feel Good Half Naked

Our next post in the BBS Guest Blogger Series is here! The sun is out and there is no better time to start thinking of swimwear for all those weekend getaways, pool time, or summer vacations. While the struggle to find a proper fitting and fashionable suit is most definitely real, there is no way you should forgo a fun-filled summer due to the lack of a killer bikini or one piece. We’ve asked Lori Bacon, Swimco’s president and owner, for her top tips for getting it right and what trends are HOT for this season.

Q: So what would you say is the best way to get a “Swimsuit Body”?

L: I’d say just have a body, and put on a swimsuit! Every body is a swimsuit body. Toss any hang-ups you have aside, and get ready for fun. Swimwear is your passport to exciting times in and near the water.

Q: How do you find the right swim style?

L: Make sure whatever styles you look at will help give you confidence! If you love your legs, show them off! And if you prefer to minimize a certain area, there are options for that too. Then think if the suit is for a specific occasion, like a girls’ Vegas trip or going to the pool with your kids. Think of what you’re using the suit for, and then finding the right style will be an easy pick.

Q: How can you find a perfect fit?

L: Swimwear doesn’t fit like street clothes, so be ready to find your sizing different from other stores. Trying things on is a must. Also, a lot of people don’t realize you can get cup sized swimwear, so busty gals can still find fantastic, on-trend pieces that offer the proper amount of support. If you visit our stores, you’ll find the girls know swimwear inside and out. It makes the entire experience so much more enjoyable when you’re talking to someone who really cares about finding you that amazing fit.

Q: What trends are big for this summer?

L: High necklines are still a huge trend, and coming in even more silhouettes than ever. There are bikinis with cute cropped crochet like this style by Kenneth Cole Reaction, or if you prefer one pieces, you can get the look in a updated maillot with mesh by La Blanca. Speaking of one pieces, that’s a huge shift in trends this year. One pieces aren’t just for being covered up. Sexy one pieces with high leg lines, plunge necklines, lace up sides and strappy backs are the must-have pieces for summer. I love how they can double as a bodysuit too with shorts.
