When I spotted this video posted on Jezebel, I was curious to see what “Buti” meant. Bizzie Gold is evidently a fitness buff who’s loved cardio for a long time and decided to add elements of Zumba, twerking and yoga into a routine to get ladies fit by “Buti” shaking.

Bizzie did not invent or even re-invent the wheel. She took something Black women have been doing, even before the Twerk Team surfaced and made a class out of it, thus creating a business. Bizzie and her “Buti” class has been featured everywhere from Self to E! as a hot new fitness craze, but what about the young ladies who make up the Twerk Team?
The only place you can really find them is on their popular YouTube Channel and various hip-hop videos like Ludacris’ “How Low.” But you will not see the Twerk Team teaching a fitness class or featured on Access Hollywood in the same regard as Bizzie and her “Buti” videos. Maybe they have no desire to teach a class?
