Fitness Gurus of 2014


There has been a fitness craze that’s swept across the nation, however this time it’s trendier with a focus on longevity rather than fitting into those size 0s. Here are BGF’s favs for fitness:



We love Massy and her little dance after her sets. Her buff bod keeps us inspired. She has a strong desire for self- improvement and always keeps it positive.



Who doesn’t love a firm booty? J. reminds us that strong is definitely the new sexy. Great lower body exercises and arm toning makes J. a fitness staple in 2014, can’t wait to see what 2015 offers.



Being in a relationship with Insanity caused me to take a break from Shaun T and his fitness shenanigans. Many people can attest to Shaun T’s body shredding exercises and his amazing workouts.

We are looking forward to a happy and healthy year with these three! Let's get and stay fit with them in 2015.
