I’m Eoin, 33 years old from Ireland. I have been living in Barcelona for 2 years now.
When Jonnathan asked me to join him for a workout on a cold Saturday morning at Plaza Espanya in late 2017 I never would have imagined that we would be where we are today! I remember after an hour of squats, running up and down steps and crunches that I had experienced a really unique workout.
Booty Blast grew out of Jonnathan’s passion for fitness and giving back to the community and these are the pillars that we still carry through over a year later. We now have over 30 regular attendees who have not only challenged and pushed themselves to the limit but have created a fitness family.
What I love about Booty Blast is the energy everyone brings every Saturday morning. Whether they are first-timers, regular Blasters or coaches - for one hour each week we come together and laugh, sweat, dance and motivate each other to be bigger, stronger and better! It takes a special person to get out of bed at 9am on a cold Saturday morning but our family continues to grow each week!
Being a Booty Blast captain is an amazing feeling. I am surrounded by a family of incredible people from all different backgrounds united by our love for fitness. It is a truly great feeling to help people push themselves further to reach their fitness goals in such a beautiful location like Montjuic! Our aim as coaches is to create a fun, welcoming and supportive atmosphere. I have loved seeing the Booty Blast evolve and I am excited for the new projects Calizumos has planned for our community!

I used to be a competitive alpine skier for 15 years so sport has been basically part of my life since day 1. I cannot imagine a day without some kind of sport. When i finished my career i fell in love with more endurance sports, especially running. In march ‘19 i’ll run my first marathon. I enjoy being outdoors and being surrounded with family & friends.
Why Booty Blast?
We are not only people who like to workout we are also group of friends who share the passion for fitness & well-being. For me having the opportunity to give some of my knowledge and help & show people that they are able to achieve something amazing, is the best thing i can do. We do not leave anyone behind. We support, motivate and inspire each other.
I’m Jordi and I am 37 years old and I have been training since I was a kid. I have been going to the gym since the age of 18 and I try to keep a healthy, balanced diet.
I started going to the Booty Blast over a year ago, when I was invited by Eoin and Jonnathan. I find the workout the perfect compliment to to my gym training as it gives a full body cardio and functional training workout. Booty Blast is also the perfect opportunity to become part of a community from all over the world, which gave me the chance to meet new people and do new things as a team.
