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.
