BBM Motivation

BBM Motivation – AKA Buttabean Motivation – has been operating across Auckland since 2014, helping people achieve their personal health, fitness, and life goals. It is run by people with lived experience in changing their mindsets and turning their lives around.

BBM Motivation operates two free gyms in South Auckland and West Auckland, and a gym in Tokoroa. Classes run across the week, and include From The Couch (FTC), boxing, bodyweight HIT, circuit classes for mums and bubs, Konga dance, and Ura Fitness. There are also walking groups and the Trust Stadium stairs challenge. Classes are free, and can be booked online on the MindBody app.

In Auckland, BBM Motivation operates the BBM Foodshare for people who need it. This is supported by businesses and organisations who generously donate products and money to fill the boxes and keep this initiative going.

BBM Motivation also runs a social supermarket in Tokoroa alongside the gym, and a community kitchen in South Auckland which prepares and regularly provides healthy, affordable food for local people.

In addition to life-changing courses like the 12-week Attitude & Fit programme, designed to uplift and upskill people to get into employment or education, BBM offers an employment service. All of BBM’s key people have come through our bootcamps and initiatives. We help diamonds polish their shine.

“What we do at BBM works because we’ve walked this path ourselves. Every journey starts with the first step. Just start. You won’t regret it.” – Dave Letele

What people have said

I've always loved the atmosphere of BBM and the sense of belonging. I cant fault anything about BBM! it needs to be everywhere.


It is the best thing for my mental health and when I’m in a good headspace then I can give the best of me to those around me. You owe it to yourself! Starting weight with BBM – 113kgs Current weight – 77kgs


I enjoyed being motivated, inspired and challenged, not being left alone, having team encouragement and looking forward to see the team members every week.


The BBM program saved my life. It is more than a weight loss program, this program is life changing! It has been the best thing I've done.
