Dede Barbanti

I was a professional dancer, choreographer and competitor for over 15 years but left to start a family. After the birth of my 3rd child in January 2008 my weight sky rocketed to over 200 lbs. I was mortified! How could I let this happen, I didn't even recognize myself anymore. As an active...

Before finding BBX, I was bored with the cardio classes at my gym and had hit a plateau. I was working out nearly 7 days a week and the scale wouldn't budge. I went to one of the BBX launches and was hooked. BBX has totally taken my workouts to the next level. My cardiovascular endurance...

After I had my 3rd (and last!) kid, I was excited to get my body back but was dreading the whole "gym thing". It took me about 2 years to get close to my pre-pregnancy body after my second child, which was right before I became pregnant with #3! I learned of BBX from a friend, who...

In August 2007 I was diagnosed with Pre-Diabetes after years of struggling with my weight. With the help of diabetes medications and the diet my doctor put me on, I was able to lose 30+ pounds. But I was not "in-shape", I was just smaller and I knew I needed to find some form of...

I was a dancer for 12 years and never had a problem with my weight, never went to the gym, and ate whatever I wanted. I continued to never go to the gym and eat poorly even after I stopped taking dance classes. To make things worse I added 30 pounds during the course of culinary school to my...

After two children and not working out for years, I was the heaviest I have ever been in my entire life and knew it was time for a change. Dance and Cheer use to be a huge part of my life and I was searching for a workout platform that was as exciting and would keep me as interested the way...

Jaclyn E.

My name is Jaclyn E. and at the age of 31 I weighed the most I ever had in my lifetime, 270 pounds. I never dreamed I would get that heavy and quite frankly I never did anything about it. Sure I had two kids but the weight came on before and after as well. I was sad and depressed all the time...

I love BBX! I just want to give a big thank you to the BBX Team!! You are all awesome. I have not felt this energized, happy, good, and able to be happy with the reflection in the mirror in years. When I first started BBX back in January I was a bit skeptical but as the second week came around...

Like many women today, I’ve been struggling with weight issues most of my adult life. I tried every “diet”, weight loss program, cardio program, gym workout class, etc. All of these different programs would work, but only temporarily because once I achieved my goal, I would...

About a donut short of 240 pounds, I attended my first BBX class with Dede in Mission Viejo in March. I had a huge problem. There was the me that was - sad, overweight, unhappy, embarrassed and ashamed of myself. Then there was the me I wanted to be - healthy, happy, positive and confident in...

I have been a group fitness instructor for almost 10 years and thought I was in pretty good shape. I tried BBX and realized how wrong I was. I had hit a plateau, was exhausting myself with excessive, mindless cardio and wasn’t getting nearly enough resistance training (even though I was...

Maria O.

From the first time I tried BBX I was hooked. That says a lot considering I didn’t think I could make it through the first class. I was never a fan of working out and it showed. The weight that magically disappeared after the birth of my first and second child seemed to stay on after the...

BBX is the best form of exercise I have found. I can't even compare it to anything I've tried in the past. I have been on blood pressure medicine for 5 years, and my knees were bothering me so much, that I was afraid the classes may be too painful. But for those who had knee, back...

Tracie K.

I was hooked on BBX as soon as I tried it. I was so glad when I was told I was going to be part of the test group. The whole experience has changed my life. In the past, I had belonged to various gyms and found the routines boring and repetitive and as a result I would not stick with anything...

Yana E.

My inspiration to try BBX was that I was keeping losing weight on different ready-to-eat diets and gaining even more back. Even if I did have small weight loss successes, I wasn’t happy because my muscles were weak and my body just did not look at fit as I wanted. This time I decided to...

I have always struggled with my weight and more so after 2 kids. With the stress and pressure of juggling motherhood and a career I never had time or made the time to work out because I hated working out. I was tired of not taking care of myself and always beating myself up for not having the...

A friend of mine asked me if I wanted to try a new work out class with her. I have been an athletic trainer for 25 years and have seen so many different workouts come and go but am always looking for something new. Being my heaviest weight ever in my life and not finding the gym to work in my...

For most of my life I have been overweight. When I was out with friends I'd be happy but deep down I hated being the size that I was.  I hated that all my friends could share clothes but I was too big to fit into their clothes.  I was almost at 200 pounds, so I decided start going...

A former competitive swimmer, practicing twice a day, at times totaling up to 5 hours, I was able to consume a lot of food without gaining a pound! My senior year in college I called it quits but my eating habits stayed the same. As result, I gained my “Freshman Fifteen” and then...

Like many people, I had the same story with being overweight (my late teens and 20’s). I did manage to drop 60-plus pounds with Weight Watchers (over 30 years ago), and kept it off for many years by playing tennis, walking, spinning, and generally being active. I’ve never really...

Teri F.

I was heavy my entire adult life. I gained and accumulated weight after having each of my four children. I failed at every diet center program. I wasted time and money signing up for many gym memberships. In 2009, I stepped on the scale and realized that I was the heaviest I have ever been in my...

I had been overweight and unhappy with my body for a long time. I would lose small amounts of weigh by watching what I at but never added a consistent exercise routine. One day while looking at pictures on my computer my husband caught me deleting pictures of myself where I looked fat. He told...

When I started BBX, it was just before my birthday this year April 2012. I was working out, jogging and doing Zumba at the gym regularly until last Thanksgiving. However, I ended up having to get a 2nd foot surgery and was forced to stop everything. After finally returning and being able to work...

A year after having my youngest son, I realized I weighed 151 pounds and that was the heaviest I've ever been. I was tired of not feeling good, tired of buying size 12 clothes, and tired of not having enough energy to play with my...
