BBS Summer Challenge is B-A-C-K!!!

Blog - SummerChallenge2

It's BAAAACK! Can't wait a second longer? Register HERE.

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.

30 in 30 Challenge

30in30 - Blog

It's Challenge time again, and this one is the toughest one yet! Take 30 classes in 30 days - yep, you read that right! Starting on January 23, take a class every day until February 22. Do that and we'll enter you into the prize draw, with our BIGGEST GRAND PRIZE ever...

ONE FREE YEAR OF BARRE!!!

Plus, there will be lots of other fun goodies from local business' up for grabs.

We know how tough taking class every single day can be, schedule-wise, so doubles will count (two classes in one day), however, your second class can not be booked in advance, it will be a drop-in only on a first come, first served basis. Thanks for your consideration here!

We find Challenges a great way to motivate, set goals and inspire ourselves and others. We hope this goes without saying, but your health and well-being is our number one priority. Please listen to your body, know your limits, and if you need to take a day or two off, DO IT! We'll be here when you get back. :)

Just like the Tuck for Turkey Challenge, you can Pulse your way to more points. Use BBS Pulse in class to earn points for extra entries into the draw. 

How you earn points:

By staying in the optimal heart rate zones for the majority of class. BBS Pulse is all about tracking where your heart rate is during class. Ideally, you are spending the majority of class in zones 3 and 4, which are the aerobic and anaerobic zones. To learn more about the heart rate zones, read this.

For every minute of class, we will award you with points! The number of points is up to you, based on which heart rate zone you're in. Check it out:

Zone 1 (green) = 1 point/minute
Zone 2 (light grey) = 5 points/minute
Zone 3 (teal) = 15 points/minute
Zone 4 (dark grey) = 15 points/minute
Zone 5 (pink) = 10 points/minute

To give you an idea, imagine you're in a Press class and you spend 5 minutes in zone 1, 12 minutes in zone 2, 15 minutes in zone 3, 12 minutes in zone 4 and 6 minutes in zone 5. We won't bore you with the math, but you just Pulsed your way to 530 points, in only one class!

What the points mean:

14,000 points = 1 extra entry
16,000 points = 2 extra entries
18,000 points = 3 extra entries
20,000+ points = 4 extra entries

We'll be posting your point totals halfway through the Challenge, on the boards, so make sure you check where you're at!

Here's to the new year, the same awesome you and to setting goals and crushing them! 

Only a few spots left in the 30 in 30 Challenge! Sign up here

You've Got This!

Blog - SummerChallenge

You're almost halfway there! We see you barre babes showing up. Even when it's sunny, even when it's pouring, even when we know sometimes Netflix & Chill sounds like a much better idea. But you show up and you work hard and you make us proud. We've been seeing your posts on Instagram, watching you share pics and quotes that amp you up. We can't tell you enough just how much this delights us. We love being a part of this challenge with you. We love being included in the goals you set for yourself this summer. We love having you as a member of our #tribe.

With just over 3 weeks left in the BBS Summer Challenge, we are here to cheer you on, encourage you on days when you're just not feeling it and motivate you to pulse just that little bit deeper. We know you can. We know you will. We know you've got this.

Don't forget to check out the BBS Bucket List, just in case you need an extra check mark one of these days.

Here's to the final weeks of the Challenge and, more importantly, here's to you #BBSTribe!

Happy Summer BBS Tribe!

With the first day of this sunny season behind us, we can’t help but think of all the fun we’re going to have this summer. From backyard BBQs to river floats, camping trips and sidewalk chalk masterpieces, we love it all. We know that, with all the fun things planned, working out can sometimes take a back burner during the warmer months. The crew at BBS has put together something fun and motivating that will help keep us all on track. That’s right bellas, it’s challenge time!

Welcome to the BBS Summer Challenge! Running from July 20 to August 31. The challenge is simple: take 20 classes in 6 weeks. 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!

Complete 20 classes in the Challenge time frame and you will be entered into the draw for one of the many sweet prizes we have up for grabs! We don’t want to spoil all the surprises, but let’s just say we’ve heard rumours about a private barre party and a juice cleanse from Cru. Shhh!

Now that you are amped up and ready to take part in the BBS Summer Challenge, what do you have to do? Register now, right here.

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.
