Epic workouts set to fun beats, an incredible girl squad, shiny new equipment and a whole lot of good vibes… our fitness experts the BUF Girls are so excited to open the doors to their brand new BUF Girls Studio in Bondi this week - and our Black Thunders were there to celebrate their open day over the weekend!
Here are 5 reasons we think you need to try this studio stat - and why the experience will be different to anything else you’ve ever tried 🎉
Hint; if you don’t live in Bondi, you can still use this list as a guideline to help you find a group workout experience near you that ticks all the right boxes 😉
1. It’s a FUN workout concept, with DJ-mixed, curated playlists & some classes completely matched to the beat!
Great tunes make for a great workout, so the girls worked with two incredible fitness DJs to curate seriously cool playlists for your sessions, each of them with a different feel. Strength workout? Expect a fierce girl-power playlist. Cardio sesh? Beats-driven house mixes coming your way! Toning sets on your mat with ankle weights and booty bands? Hellloooo pop ballads. There are even two classes on the timetable – BUF G.I.R.L.S. and ABCC – that are completely set to a beat, so you’ll follow an instructor through every squat, crunch and star-jump to a completely choreographed workout experience (don’t, worry, no dancing 😉). Workouts and mixes are updated monthly, so you’ll always have a fresh mix and experience to look forward to, but also just enough time to learn and rock each current set!
2. A mix of 50-minute and super effective 30-minute sessions
If you want to level up, not burn out, this is important! The girls have structured the studio timetable to include a range of classes that are sure to fit in with your busy schedule and make sure you’re not overdoing any one kind of training. The female body responds best to variety, so they’ve planned things meticulously to help you curate your workout experience and plan an amazing week of feel-good sessions.
3. Women training women – the girls know what you really need!
BUF stands for Beautiful friendships, Unstoppable bodies, Fearless minds – three things the training team behind the new studio believe help women live their best lives. And after working exclusively with women for almost a decade, guess what they’ve learned? For women to be at their happiest and get the best results possible they need connection, fun and balance, and to be able to shift the kind of exercise they’re doing at various times of the month for optimal hormonal and mood balance. That’s why there’s a mix of classes, from high intensity options, to low-impact strength work, some longer classes and some shorter, and of course those uplifting to-the-beat sessions for when you need a full-body toning experience and a mood boost.
4. It’s all sweat, no tears – an uplifting (not competitive) experience
The BUF Girls don’t believe in spamming you with other peoples’ before and after photos, because comparison truly is the thief of joy. They’re not going to yell and scream at you at 6am, because that’s not conducive to having a good time and encouraging you to stay consistent. This is one studio where you’ll always be welcomed with a smile and the girls will know your name and all about your passions, because they believe you matter deeply and love getting to know you. They want you to feel fit and healthy, not judged.
5. The studio looks and feels so different to a regular gym
This studio was custom-designed by the highly sought after graphic artists at Neverland Studio (find them on instagram @neverlandstudio). It’s such a fresh feel, clean but colourful, a welcoming space with lots of little details and affirmations scattered throughout, designed to feel inviting and warm.
