working out because we love our bodies. not because we hate them.
The be.come project is a body-positive, I-can-do-it, go-on-and-love-yourself approach to boutique fitness in an accessible 25-minute routine. All you have to do is show up – anywhere, anytime. Each week, be.come participants receive a curated routine taught by Bethany that mimics an in-person class experience. #thisweeksroutine is designed to be done repetitively over the course of 7 days. Your body will become familiar with the flow and movement, gaining strength and confidence with each session. All you have to do is be.come.
a unique routine each week
The be.come project routines are a unique blend of the alignment of pilates, the lengthening of yoga and the musicality of dance. Each routine begins with a warm up, flows through the right side body, bridges to the left side and concludes with a high energy finish. The seamless transitions are structured to keep you engaged from beginning to end. aka: maximum effect, minimal time. aka: little time for hair fixing or phone checking.
“I wanted so badly to take part in the be.come project but I lacked so much self-esteem that I told myself I couldn’t possibly keep up with you. I threw myself into it and I cried when I finished, because I hadn’t finished anything in the last year and finally, I had. Everyday after work I couldn’t wait to roll out my yoga mat. For the first time in what feels like years, I am proud of myself. I have finally stuck with something and have seen how I’ve become stronger, and more confident.”—Sarra G.
repetition enhances sensation
Ever tried learning a new language? You are shown an apple, then you say apple, then you write apple, then you point to the apple. You do it over and over again until when you see an apple, you think manzana. When you be.come, you practice the same routine all week long. On session 1 you begin to learn it, by session 3 it starts to click and by session 5 you are soaring through the movements feeling them in a whole new way. Then next week comes and we start again. Honestly, it’s magic.
“My first two times doing the lunge series it didn’t really click, but boy, today it did!! I was able to crank up the music and follow along to the beat and not totally rely on your vocal cues!”—Sami R.
just 25 minutes
I’m not sure who these people are who have hours to spend at the gym everyday, but I’m not one of them. Give or take, each be.come routine is 25 minutes of active movement. If you don’t think you can get a good workout in 25 minutes, I can’t wait to blow your mind. Carefully crafted and smartly cued. Do it quick, do it right.
“Your cues were dead on and I so appreciated the step-by-step direction and guidance because when I listened…I felt it exactly where you said I would! And I have to say, that is AMAZING. I swear every other workout program I have tried in the past never lived up to its hype. YOU are a LIGHT!”—Stephanie D.
focus on how you feel
Most people think “I want to lose weight so I can feel good.” but what if that conversation shifted to “I want to feel good so I can lose weight”. The be.come project focuses on the feel good, because the weight loss will inevitably follow (and you won’t even have to beat yourself up about it.) Each time you open and close a routine, you’ll be asked a simple question, “how do you feel?” This gives you a beat to check in and examine how your daily movement affected your emotional state that day. Feeling good and losing weight no longer have to be mutually exclusive.
“Your workout brought me from ‘I hate myself’ to ‘I love myself, you can do this.’ I started the routine and broke down in tears – couldn’t even look at myself in the mirror without uttering the words ‘you’re worthless.’ But then something changed. I fell into the rhythm and I focused on only your voice and my breath. By the end I was smiling at myself in the mirror and kissing my shoulders during mountain climbers.”—Ashley D.
all levels welcome
Every rule has its exceptions, but overall be.come can be tailored to your level and modifications are always encouraged. All movements are zero-impact and because we use your body as the primary piece of equipment, you can choose to push yourself or modify, depending on the day. If you are able to lunge and plank (including modified planking) you can be.come. be.come is pregnancy friendly for those who aren’t high risk and were active pre-bun-in-the-oven.
“Your routine got me sweating and my muscles felt the burn. While I experience a little confusion at first, there is always this moment where my body just takes over and moves. It feels natural, fluid, and hard in all of the right ways.”—Kirsten B.
The beauty of everyone doing the same routine each week is that we are all in this together. Ask me a question and you’ll see the answers posted in #thisweeksroutine – a resource center where you’ll find tutorials, tips, and tricks on moves we’ll master each week. This is my way of bringing the studio to you. As your instructor, I’ll be present, engaged, and aware of what you are doing each day and week.
“When you said “I can do it, I can do it” at the end of the routine; I chimed in and started saying it too. I didn’t realize how powerful it is to say those words out loud!”—Abigail M.
