working out because we love our bodies.
not because we hate them.
the be.come project is a body-neutral, 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, the be.come project 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 of the 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.
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 do the be.come project, you practice the same routine all week long, which can be incredibly beneficial for the mind and body. You’ll learn the moves faster and more efficiently so that by the end of seven days, the session morphs into meditation. And with two routines to choose from, honestly, it’s magic.
just 25 minutes
We’re not sure who these people are who have hours to spend at the gym everyday, but we’re not one of them. Give or take, each routine is 25 minutes of active movement. If you don’t think you can get a good workout in 25 minutes, we can’t wait to blow your mind. Carefully crafted and smartly cued. Efficiency at it’s finest.

At the be.come project, we don’t do before and after pictures. Why? BECAUSE THEY ARE BS. Health exists at every size. And what good is a “skinny” picture if you feel like crap? So instead, we focus on how we feel before and after every be.come session. Literally. In order to unlock / lock your routine, you’ll be prompted with the question “how am I feeling?” and a list of emotions to choose from. It’s pretty powerful stuff. In fact, the most chosen word before a routine is “tired” and the most chosen word after a routine is “strong”. BAM
all levels welcome
Every rule has its exceptions, but overall the be.come project can be tailored to your level and alternative options are always provided. All movements are zero-impact and because we use your body as the primary piece of equipment, you can choose to push yourself or pull back, depending on the day. If you are able to lunge (option to use a chair for support), plank (including kneeling planking) and safely get on and off the floor, you can be.come. We are pregnancy friendly for those who aren’t high risk and were active pre bun-in-the-oven. To learn more about be.coming for your body, check out our Can I Do It? page.
The beauty of everyone doing the same movements each week is that we are all in this together. After your new routine is released on Monday, you can submit questions about the positions and sequences performed. Each Wednesday, Bethany will post tutorials that not only answer your specific questions, but will also improve your overall form. This is our way of bringing the studio to you — no waitlist required.
