The Burpee World Tour

POPsters! So yesterday on Facebook, I told you guys that for the longest time, I wanted to do a workout around the world. Originally, I thought I’d be able to travel and actually do moves in different places, but REALISTICALLY this isn’t gonna happen anytime soon!

So I thought…why don’t we all make a video together? Yeah! How fun would that be? We could all be in a video together!!!

Check out this Where the Hell is Matt video below. It is so cool. Matt actually travels the world – but in our video it will be each one of us contributing a our own scene.

So what move are we doing? BURPEES <–that’s right. I said it. Burpees. We shall now universally show our love for them. Click here to see the video on how to do a burpee.

How many? 1 burpee! With our without pushup, your choice.

Where: A famous landmark in your city, state, or country! Or maybe a unique location.

Directions: Setup camera to capture scene and RUN IN AS FAST AS YOU CAN on one side of cam, do 1 really good burpee, then RUN OUT AS FAST AS YOU CAN on the other side of cam. If you don’t want to run, you can dance in, tumble in, skip in, whatever, be creative!!! Be crazy!!

How many landmarks can you do? As many as you can!

How many people can be in the video? As many as you want! Or just you.

Purpose: To show where all our POPsters are from and to finally be in a workout video together!

Do you talk? No, just be happy! Be crazy!!!!

Where do you submit the video? Email blogilates@gmail.com with your video clip. Tell me your name and the location where you are and/or the landmark’s name.

Submission due date: I want to start the submissions today Dec 1, 2011 and have the video up by Jan 7, 2012. If you can also try to get burpee shots while celebrating New Year’s in front of fireworks, this would make for an amazing ending!!!

Let me know if you have any questions!!! I’m really really really pumped!!! Can’t wait to see all of us together in one video.

Now tell me in the comments, which country are you from and which landmark are you thinking of doing?

    Is it too late to submit a video for this? I live in Heidelberg, Germany and could do a burpee somewhere at the castle or down along the river with the castle in the background.

  3. Lynna says:

    Well I’m from Barbados (it’s an island in the Caribbean). I’m not sure where I should do this but I would love to be apart of this. Does the video quality matter? Im using a digital camera, it does a pretty good video but not as good as one of those movie-like cameras.

    1. Ginger Noisette says:

      Wow I’d like to live there! I’ll use my phone camera:) Love from Istanbul:)

  14. Ann-Kathrin says:

  15. Sara says:

    Well… I guess I’ll be the only one with the arabian touch:D I’m from Egypt so I guess the pyramids?? or I might do it in front of some place new wut do u think?? and the pyramids are too far away from where i live 🙁

    1. Saim says:

  18. Sevil says:

    1. Scott says:

      I liked the Capelet II. I would like it a hundreds time if FB allwos. What makes me feel beautiful wow thats tough. Well, theres a wholes series of feelings that makes me feel beautiful First, sweating makes me feel beautiful. Not to gross you out, i mean sweating during an intense exercising session. Gosh, i love sweat dropping down my hair, my face, my clothes. Then, that feeling you get when you step into that cold shower. Cold water, hot sweaty body, the ultimate testament to a sizzling physique! And finally, the act of peeling a banana and chopping up any fruit I can find and blending it with yoghurt for the best after-work-0ut smoothie. That filling sensation as that cold delicious smoothie travels down my throat. I can already feel the antioxidants and nutrients rejuvenating inside me.That is the feeling of beauty!!

  19. Janice says:

    hollywood sign!!! 😀

  20. Alvi says:

    Right now, I’m working in Poltava, Ukraine and will try to do a video in front of one of our monuments here. And then I’ll be back in Sacramento/Irvine for xmas, so I’ll try to do another one or both somewhere there..

  21. Victoria says:

    Hello !!! 🙂 I’m Nigerian and Im gonna do a burpee near a landmark in Lagos , so we can throw some tropical-ness into the mix 🙂

  22. Bindi says:

    oooh, this is so fun. i live in Kuching, Borneo side of Malaysia. Kuching is also called “cat city” so maybe a burpee infront of one of the kitchy cat statues or if i go to the jungle one day….

  23. Kajsa Österling says:

    Oh man! This is going to be so much fuuuun!!! 🙂
    But I have only one little problem… I don’t know any landmarks out here.
    Well, there is some, but like in the other end of Sweden 🙂

  25. Brenee says:

    Great idea!!! I love it! See we’re not so different; we all like to to be happy and do a little dance, or burpee, all over the world! haha I’m in Oklahoma, so maybe some scenery of wild horse reserve, or sunset with the rocky ridges……hmm, on it!

    1. blogilates says:

      NICE!! looking fwd to it!

  26. Ni Ni says:

      1. Ni Ni says:

        yes, myanmar is a beautiful place, you should visit!!

  27. Chelsea says:

    I don’t think I can get to any famous landmarks in Texas in that short of time :(! I can make a video though!

    1. Annica says:

      Where in Texas are you from?

  28. Cari Garvey says:

    Somewhere in Chicago! maybe on the glass over look at the SEARS TOWER!! Its totally creepy and scary and not sure If Becky and I can pull it off buy sure going to try!

    1. Amber says:

      such a good idea. I’m thinking about the bean, or water fountain by the art museum. 🙂

      1. Becky Hepinstall says:

        As much as I’d love to, I’m not sure if they’ll allow us to jump in the glass boxes at the Sears Tower…or if there’s enough room?? The Bean is a good one, so is Buckingham Fountain (or maybe not, is it turned off for the season?), I was also thinking of the spot near the Planetarium that overlooks the lake and the city. Maybe and El stop as the train is going by? Navy Pier…on the steps of the Field Museum…in front of the lions outside the art museum…INSIDE the Shedd Aquarium?!

  29. Victoria says:

    Hey Cassie ,

    Im from Nigeria 🙂 , woop woop , and the Landmark will be Victoria Garden city in Lagos 🙂 , Which is a landmark in its own right , the burpee shall be done in the gardens right in front of the sea front 🙂
