What is BBG and how does it work?

Changing lives since 2012, the guide includes a fitness and nutrition plan that spans 3 months. Meanwhile, the 28-minute workouts are broken down into arms and abs, legs and full body, so the focus is on a different muscle group every day. The combination of weight training and cardio plus meal plan makes the program super effective. We also love that BBG doesn’t eliminate foods and instead encourages healthier choices through recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, desserts and even snacks.


What makes it even more amazing?

BBG, through the simplicity of its workouts and its ability to be modified, is a woman’s introduction to fitness. It’s for the woman who wants to give her battles a good fight; she could be fighting obesity or overcoming an eating disorder, building strength or getting a bikini body. And throughout your journey, there’s a group of women, a sisterhood through the BBG community, to encourage you to train harder, run faster and just be the best version of yourself you can be.
