The Tamarijn & Divi Aruba all-inclusive celebrated the opening of its new oceanfront fitness center this weekend with Boston fitness guru Kelly Brabants, as celebrity trainer.
Kelly brought her famous heart-pumping cardio workout to the new oceanfront gym, named one of the best hotel-gyms in the world, by FORBES magazine. She welcomed guess of all fitness levels, to her intense class Saturday morning, and later hosted a private meet, greet & mingle at the Beach Bar over mini smoothies, and fruit skewers.
Kelly’s visit to Aruba was documented by Boston Magazine, for publication later in the month, and as guest of Divi Resorts Aruba, she enjoyed dinner in the company of Managing Director Alex Nieuwmeyer, and GM Divi & Tamarijn Aruba All Inclusives Marin Bijl.
The balance of her trip to the island was dedicated to photography. Kelly shot a special pictorial featuring her BBB, Booty by Brabants line of bathing suits, fitness and lifestyle outfits here. She has been to Aruba many times, as a child, and growing up, and decided to use the island’s picturesque beaches as backdrops for her upcoming collection.
Kelly shares that Booty by Brabants, is inspired by her values of self-confidence, unrelenting dedication to health and fitness, and her Brazilian roots. Her BBB fashion line is manufactured in Rio de Janeiro, and has a distinctive and colorful look.
Having started her career as a trained dancer and certified personal trainer who taught professionally in some of America’s most prestigious gyms, Kelly says she recognized the need for a fitness experience based on an intense full-body strength, cardio work out, paired with super positive, feminine, and energetic vibes. She began innovating a class with these ideals in mind — and clients responded positively.
The new Divi Oceanfront Fitness Center features state of the art cardiovascular equipment and stunning ocean views from its second floor location above the beach bar and water sports center. Open from 6:30 am to 7:30 pm daily with personal trainer on hand every Tuesday to Sunday from 11:30 am to 7:30 pm.
