BUTI & The Babe: A Sexy Workout Story

Fitness

 

WHAT IS BUTI?

BUTI is a high-intensity workout that mixes yoga, plyometrics, conditioning and dance into a tasty Kool-Aid that you'll want to drink to reach new physique highs. It's turning average bodies into hard bodies and making MILF's out of new moms. What's not to love, right? But that's not all. The story isn't complete without the belle of the workout: Miss Bizzie.

 

WHO IS BIZZIE?

Bizzie Gold is the smart cookie behind BUTI (pictured below). As a former fitness competitor entering motherhood, she wanted to keep up with her personal fitness routine but found that she didn't have as much time to put into it with all the preparations for her baby. She was teaching traditional Hatha Yoga classes and began experimenting by adding various styles of dance, plyometrics, and conditioning to her classes. In her mind, it was saving time by putting everything she wanted to do into 1 workout. BOOM! The results--sleek, toned muscles--were amazing! She knew she was on to something. It was then that her vision for BUTI took off.

THE BUTI LOVE AFFAIR & WHY IT'S SEXY

Bizzie is turning her little fitness experiment into something bigger than just a class or a workout. It's a movement because it completely changes the way you work out, powering you with an ultra-sexy energy, and giving you more time to live your life instead of spending it at the gym. Bizzie calls it "the perfect workout" because afterwards it feels like you did 2 workouts in 1. She compares it to hitting both the gym and a yoga class. The main difference is that you must ditch the weights and commit to moving the "equipment" that God gave ya. And apparently that means lots of hip shaking, gyrating, bumpin' and grindin'... See for yourself below!

It doesn't matter how many babies you've had, according to Bizzie you can bounce back with BUTI and even achieve a better body than you had pre-pregnancy. Personally, I like the idea of making strangers think your kids are adopted because so many people assume that after you have kids your body can never be the same. BUTI is the way to prove them wrong, and better yet, to go about your life loving the skin you're in.

 

WANNA GET BUSY WITH BUTI? FOLLOW 1 RULE AND YOU'RE IN!

There's 1 critical rule that you must follow to join the BUTI community. You absolutely cannot hate on Gangster Rap. It's part of BUTI culture and that's that. Bizzie acknowledges the music and dance styles she uses in BUTI tend to have a bad reputation (veering on overtly sexual and aggressive) but she doesn't give a (bleep) because in her words "they are so much fun". She also says, "I get plenty of criticism...but that’s what kind of music makes me want to shake my hips.” Beyond Gangster Rap, BUTI playlists also include tracks from the genres of Electronica, Dubstep, Brazilian Funk Carioca, Reggaeton, Dub Reggae, House, and Soul. Ultimately, Bizzie just wants BUTI students to drop their egos and self-consciousness. That's how to make it a serious workout that's both mentally and physically liberating.

 

WHERE TO FIND BUTI

BUTI classes are available on the Big Island of Hawaii (where Bizzie first began "experimenting") and in Southern California. Classes in West Hollywood, Santa Monica and Laguna Beach are set to start in November 2011. All the details are available on the BUTI Fitness Website. If you take a class, please come back here to MizzFIT.com and leave a comment about your experience. Or if you're a Hawaiian fan, let us know how it's changed you!

 

HOW 2 TEACH BUTI

BUTI teacher training is set to launch in Los Angeles in December 2011 at the 3rd Street Dance Center in West Hollywood. From there, BUTI teacher training will be weaving it's way across the country. If you're a fitness instructor living in Denver, San Francisco or New York, be on the lookout because BUTI is headed your way in 2012.

Looks fun! I wish the class was offered in NY!

We will be offering a NYC BUTI training July 2012. Tell your favorite fitness instructor to sign-up or sign-up yourself! xoxo Bizzie (BUTI Founder)

BUTI has changed my life forever!!! I am 48 and have never looked and felt so good in all my life. I am a movement instructor of Yoga, Pilates and Gyrotonic and love this workout. I live on The Big Island and am one of BUTI's biggest fans. This workout has challenged me on many levels including body, mind and soul. This is a workout that I look forward to doing three sometimes four times a week. Come with an open mind and be ready to shake it like never before. Your hips and BUTI will never be the same again. Get ready to grind it, laugh, sweat and have a kick ass BUTI bumpin time! xoxo

BUTI is absolutely amazing! I have been shaking my tush for almost a month and my body has changed completely! As an ex waterpolo player and wrestler, I must say that BUTI has best combination of exercise for athletes. In approximately 12 days, I lost 5.5 lbs and 4% of my body fat (and still decreasing to this day). Not only am I losing weight, but my yoga practice improving to the max. Every class is a guaranteed butt kicking work out that will mold your body and mind forever. Mentally and physically, I feel like a million dollars! So, get ready for some serious booty popping :D

Hi Kelly,

I know! They're all the same woman---Bizzie Gold! Her body is sick to the max. Inspirational stuff. Don't you wish you could move like that (like Jagger...lol).

Just signed up for the Los Angeles teacher training! I've never tried the workout, but was sold just watching the YouTube videos! Not only does it look like a kick butt workout, but a class that you can have some fun in too....with some great music! I can't wait to teach BUTI in the OC!

MizzFIT October 23rd, 2011 12:40PM

Hi Nicole,

So glad I could help introduce you to something new. You don't know how good that makes me feel. I just hope one day I'll be able to take this class from you! You should definitely reach out to Bizzie Gold too. She is so sweet and cool. Thanks for leaving your comment!

You are definitely my source for all the up 'n' coming fitness class formats and brands! Oooh...and BTW...I am now the Southern California Wholesale Representative and Brand Ambassador for Blake Brody In-Studio Footwear. Super excited! LOVE her footwear line!

Candis Stansell October 30th, 2011 11:40AM

I live on the Big Island and have been very eager for Biz to unveil this amazing workout to the world!! It's going to be huge!! I have been doing Buti for a year now and I can honestly say that this is the first time I have ever stuck to a workout routine. This intense yet fun program makes me feel sexy and love my curvy body. After having 2 kids, I sometimes found it difficult to stay on top of my workout. Buti is an hour and a half of squats, lunges, push ups, dancing, buti-shaking and stretching. I have never enjoyed exercising so much and I look forward to starting my day with this all inclusive workout. Love love love you Bizzie and I thank you forever for your huge influence and belief in me! Yay Buti!! ;)

MizzFIT November 2nd, 2011 9:08AM

Hi Nicole!

Congrats. Wish I had known that a few weeks ago when I was emailing Blake Brody's PR peeps because I wanted to feature their footwear on a morning show. But got no response back :( I will contact you from now on! Thank you for the very sweet compliment and I'm so happy to have your 2 cents on my site! Love what you have to say!

Hi Candis,

Wow, this is so sweet and it sounds like you've really benefited from this work out. I love to hear personal accounts like yours and I'm so happy that you've shared your experience here because I think it gives other women out there faith that this workout can do the same for them. I'm just waiting for classes to hit NYC and really hope Bizzie will keep us posted as to when they do. Thanks again for sharing this comment with me!

Nicole November 3rd, 2011 9:47AM

You can totally contact me in the future regarding the Blake Brody footwear line…I’d be happy to help in any way I can. And I’ll provide you with my feedback from the BUTI teacher training. I’m sure it’ll be awesome!

MizzFIT November 3rd, 2011 3:18PM

Hi Nicole,

Thank you so much and please let them know I had reached out to them with no response. I will definitely make sure to contact you next time I need some info. And yes, pls keep me in the loop re:buti and say hi to bizzie for me when you meet her!

Alohas, I am from the Big Isle and have been taking Bizzies class since my second child, 2 years ago. I stepped into her class and my journey is forever changed. I am teaching it on the Big island now and will be headed to the teacher training in L.A. as well. This class empowers women to really push their own bodies limits but at the same time, enjoying what gifts we have been given, our mama hips. This class leaves everyone with confidence, feeling sexy and suprised in their own strengths. Bizzie is truly an inspiration and will be across the globe...love you seasta and am so proud of the woman you are!

MizzFIT November 17th, 2011 8:28PM

Hi Jennifer,

Wow, so many people have such incredible things to say about Bizzie. It's impressive and such a good sign for those who plan to do the teacher training for BUTI. I'm curious what kind of music you use to teach your classes? The same gangster rap as Bizzie, lol? Would love to hear how your classes are similar or slightly different than her format. Thanks so much for sharing your experience and kind words. Wishing I was in the Big Island right now doing Buti. Maybe someday soon!

Those girls are very gorgeous and their yoga mix up style is amazing indeed. I think girls loving such sexy workout story pretty much. Thanks

Christine July 19th, 2012 5:35PM

Is the a workout video that can be purchased for those of us who don't live in big cities?

MizzFIT July 20th, 2012 8:44AM

Hi Christine,

There's no workout video YET that I know of but it appears as it Bizzie has created online classes that you can access here:

http://www.butifitness.com/online-classes

And the best part is that you get a 7 day trial! So definitely check it out and come back and tell me how you liked it so that other people can either sign up or steer clear. Don't forget to let us know!

Thanks for visiting MizzFIT.com! You rock!

I love the idea of this workout! It seems like a ton of fun and I would love to give it a try. Is it possibly coming to Texas soon? And if not, are there other workouts that have the same basic idea?

MizzFIT July 23rd, 2012 7:14AM

Hi Ann,

I haven't YET seen another workout like this one. But I will definitely keep my eyes open. I think the person to best answer the question about whether it's coming to Texas anytime soon is Bizzie Gold herself. I'd look her up on Facebook or go to the BUTI Fan Page here and see what she has to say: http://www.facebook.com/butifitness

I've also already personally reached out to her to let her know that you inquired about classes...

All I can say is that i hope BUTI finds you in Texas soon so that you can get your buti-shakin' grind on ;)

Thanks for leaving a comment and for visiting MizzFIT.com!

xoxo,

When does it arrive in Australia :-)

Bizzie Gold August 22nd, 2012 8:58PM

We had a lot of requests to bring BUTI to Australia. Expect to see a teacher training in multiple Aussie cities by January 2013

Sammy July 26th, 2013 4:52AM

Hi... I'm 6 months pregnant, 5'2 and have already put on 30 lbs :(. I actually started to put weight on months before I became pregnant and have not worked out in over 2 yrs. I saw Bizzie promote her video today on a talk show and interested. My dr. told me not to do anything my body is not used to and to walk a lot. After delivery do you think this video can help me get my strength and shape back??

MizzFIT July 29th, 2013 7:53PM

Hi Sammy!

Absolutely! Just take it slow and give yourself a few weeks to recover after giving birth. Bizzie actually created the workout after having her first child so I truly believe it's a workout that can help any woman post-pregnancy. Let me know how it works out for you once you give it a go!

xoxo,
