Hi Loves!

All I have to say is WOW, when I heard that I was voted Boston's most motivating instructor via Class Pass for the 2nd year in a row, I was SHOCKED! This means the world to me because it's coming from my students, who are seriously the best and have given me so much support and motivation to be the best I can be this past year! I am so thankful for this award, and I'm more excited than ever to crush it in 2017! :)

My mini BBB photoshoot during my vaca in Aruba! 2017! January 10 2017

Hi Loves!

I had such a great time last week in Aruba, it was the best way to ring in the New Year! I went with my boyfriend, my sister and her husband, and our 2 best friends. We stayed on Palm Beach and it was absolute perfection! My sister got married in Aruba last May, and we fell in love with her wedding photographers! Liz insisted that we set up a photoshoot with them while we were there, and I am so glad we did! We had a blast!

If you are planning on getting married in Aruba, I HIGHLY recommend Crooze Photography (@crooze.photography.aruba), they are the sweetest couple ever and incredibly talented! We love you Cassandra & Marc, can't wait for you to do my wedding some day! haha :)


Here are some of the pics from the shoot! 

XOXO,
Kelly

My Advice On How to Keep the Holiday Weight off in Boston Common Mag! November 10 2016

Boston Fitness Experts on How to Stay Healthy During the Holidays

By Jessica Bowne | November 7, 2016 | Lifestyle

Now that Thanksgiving is looming in the near future and holiday party invites are flowing in, it has become harder to say no to extra calories. You know the story: an extra cocktail with clients, a second (ok third) helping of stuffing with family, and late night Turkey Day leftovers turn into a wardrobe hangover come January. We spoke with five fitness experts on how to stay active and healthy while still enjoying the season. READ MORE HERE.


 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 


October oBBBsessions! November 02 2016

Hi Loves!

People ask me all the time what my favorite things are whether it be food, beauty, or clothing related - so I decided to start a "Monthly oBBBsessions" on my blog! :)

 

----

The foods I am loving right now and eat about 2-3x a week:

I am loving the "Spicy Hunan bowl" at Whole Foods. It's a light and healthy version of ramen noodles, LOADED with every vegetable under the sun & SO spicy! 

And, I have been eating tons of mangos lately, i've always loved them but right now the obsession is REAL. I always have a carton of them in my fridge & they are bomb with cayenne pepper on top.

My signature item of clothing at the moment:

100% cropped baggy sweatshirts that I cut myself, lace bralettes under everything, and my new BBB's that are launching in December (so warm, and perfect for fall/winter!) 

Must have beauty product this month:

1.) Tea Tree oil - it has saved my skin! I love mixing it with cleansing water and creating a toner with it. I cleanse my face first then use a cotton pad to apply it all over my face.

2.) L'Oreal charcoal mask! This is the best drugstore mask I have ever used! It literally acts as a vacuum for your blackheads (disgusting but you totally get what I'm saying haha) You need it in your life!

3.) Urban Decay "All Nighter" foundation from Sephora. It lasts forever and gives the best full coverage without making your skin look too "cakey" or matte. Looks great in pictures too!!

My favorite TV show this month:

"The Voice" & "Chrisley Knows Best" (I watch very little TV, but these are my go to's because they always get me in a good mood!)

Favorite song in the month of October:

If you know me I get obsessed with music pretty easy, but these are my top 3:

"Call on Me" Ryan Riback Remix

"Don't Wanna Know" Maroon 5

"Dancing On My Own" Tiesto Remix

 

What are your favorites?! Comment Below!


XOXO!

So please come join us, at the amazing Seaport World Trade Center rooftop in Boston! I will be teaching my signature Booty By Brabants class (for all ages/fitness levels) and the insanely talented DJ Pup Dawg from JAMN 94.5 will be DJing my class! It's going to be one giant dance party on the best rooftop in Boston!

Also, can't forget about our friend Dion Lewis of the New England Patriots who will be our emcee for the event.... I am 100% making him do some booty pops during my class. 

After class there will be a cash bar, raffles with amazing prizes, a huge Booty By Brabants trunk show, and music so you can stay and celebrate with us!

As you can see I am SO excited about this, and SO proud of my family and the Bigelow's for working together to make this happen!

Booty By Brabants Takes Over North End Greenway! June 28 2016

Hi Loves!

I just wanted to share a few photos from the awesome event I did last week at the North End Greenway! Pilates With Purpose reached out to me about a month ago and asked if I wanted to teach a Booty By Brabants class for them to raise money for the American Heart Association! I love anything for a good cause & I had never done an outside bootcamp before, so I was SO excited! It was completely surreal to me to have over 350 people show up and take my class, I swear I thought I was dreaming the entire time! Teaching is my passion, and seeing girls smile and have fun while they do my workout means EVERYTHING to me! I can't thank you enough for coming and supporting us, we can't wait to do another event soon!

Check out the pictures below!

XOXO,

Kelly

Hi My Loves!

So excited to share with you some of my favorite shots from a photoshoot last week in Miami! I have always been obsessed with one pieces and thought now is the perfect time to create my own.

I can not wait to show you everything VERY soon! :)

Here are some photos from the shoot & behind the scenes, hope you enjoy!

XOXO,

Kelly

  • Make sure to order your BBB leggings a minimum of 30 days in advance. Delivery time will take 2-4 weeks depending on the order.

I am super excited about this, especially since my sister is getting married in May and we will all be on the beach in Aruba rocking our BBB leggings! :)

All About "The Perfect Set" February 11 2016 2 Comments

Introducing my new obsession...

Usually when I create something for BBB it's because I NEED it in my wardrobe and I can't find it anywhere or it's not the material I want. I was looking for an amazing pair of black high waisted leggings that felt like spanx and I couldn't find ones I liked! So I decided to make my own... Introducing "The Perfect Set" aka my new obsession! (side note: If you don't know me, I use the word obsessed way to often...but it's because I genuinely love something and that's how I show my excitement!)

I truly love this product, and I swear by the fabric! It is one size fits most, I tested the pants on 10 different body types and 9 out of 10 fit perfectly!  The sports bra is lined with a nude mesh, it is very form fitting with a great stretch ( I would say it comfortably fits sizes XS-M, I promise I will make bigger sizes soon! ) I love working out in a matching set, it is an easy outfit and you can mix and match the pieces with so many different things! 

Thank you all for your support, I can't believe we sold out in the first hour of the set launch! We are now restocked in black & grey! Pictures are greatly appreciated, tag your BBB outfits with the hashtags #BBBleggings #TheBBBset #BootybyBrabants :)

Love You All!
XOXO,

Kelly B

Most Moving Instructors of 2015!!! January 14 2016

Meet the Most Moving Instructors of 2015: East Coast!

Written by Class Pass

20151222_Instructor-Superlatives-Winner-Post_r5

We asked, you told us. These are the most inspiring instructors in your city. 

Discovering new classes and workouts may be beneficial for your body, but a studio’s staff can do wonders for your attitude. When you feel like you can’t push through another set of burpees or hold another plank, it’s often the motivating words of your instructor that makes you try a little harder. 

We asked you to tell us about the instructors who made you move in 2015, and you had so many positive, inspiring comments about the men and women who made you want to come back to class again and again. Across 36 cities and four countries, we’re excited to announce the Most Moving Instructors of 2015. Read More Here!

---- 

My mission in life has always been to inspire and motivate people to be confident, happy, and feel beautiful in their own skin. So this seriously means the world to me!

Shout out to my amazing BBB ladies, I love you all and appreciate your support so much! XOXO

UsTrendy Trend Setter of the Week: Kelly Brabants August 05 2015

I grew up dancing since I was three years old and have always loved fitness and working out. It was at Equinox (where I started as a personal trainer) that I knew I wanted to do this for the rest of my life. Helping people and making them feel good about themselves is the best part of my job. Starting Booty By Brabants was a way to impact and reach multiple women at once. I wanted the class to be authentic and really show my passion and personality. The class was inspired by my Brazilian background and the beauty of a woman’s curves; embracing what you have and being proud to show it off. Read the interview

Posterior Motives January 15 2015

When personal trainer Kelly Brabants launched her eponymous fitness and lifestyle brand Booty by Brabants last year, the North Easton native found herself teaching the class of her dreams—in workout gear she hated.

“A lot of the activewear on the market just didn’t have the stretch I needed,” recalls Brabants, whose trademarked rump-roasting cardio class blends Brazilian dance, classical ballet and kickboxing. “I’d have clients stop in the middle of a squat to pull up their pants or take a break because they had a huge wedgie. Nobody likes it, but that’s what’s available.”

Local Fitness Instructor Is Launching a Leggings Line January 15 2015

The trend of celebrating the booty in pop culture continues to be in full force, but if you want a butt like a Brazilian supermodel, you’re going to have to put in work. Fortunately, here in Boston, we have Kelly Brabants, a.k.a. the booty maker (just made that up). She’s been teaching her cult-favorite Booty by Brabants classes for more than a year at The Wave at the Seaport Hotel and at the Club by George Foreman III.

Cool New Class: Booty By Brabants November 05 2014

The brainchild behind the new class talks about her inspiration.

Squats are one of the best exercises you can do for overall health, and with Brazilian supermodels making the booty workout famous, Boston’s own Brazilian beauty decided to take what she knows about dance and bring it to the fitness-loving masses.

Kelly Brabants, the woman behind the appropriately titled, Booty by Brabants, was taking dance classes before she could even walk. The Easton-native danced in New York City and Los Angeles before returning to Boston as few years ago. She became a certified personal trainer and group fitness instructor and teaches everything from dance to kickboxing.
