Brazil Butt Lift is a popular fitness program developed by Leandro Carvalho and Beachbody. Carvalho, a native of Brazil, has offered his personal training services to supermodels including Alessandra Ambrosio.

Before developing Brazil Butt Lift (a program that New York Magazine named “Best Fitness Class”), Carvalho introduced two other Beachbody fitness programs: Brazilian Body Surf (aquatic training) and Brazilian Groove, a Brazilian music-infused cardio dance program. Carvalho’s new program is becoming one of the most popular and critically acclaimed butt-specific fitness programs in the world.

Brazil Butt Lift combines Brazilian cardio with effective butt sculpting techniques in order to lift, tone and firm the buttocks, hips and thighs. The program itself, delivered on three DVDs, is set to vibrant music and includes high energy instruction from Carvalho himself.

Brazil Butt Lift includes other materials beyond the DVDs, such as meal plans and workout calendars, to help you achieve your specific weight loss and buttocks sculpting goals.

While Brazil Butt Lift focuses on toning, sculpting and lifting the buttocks and surrounding areas, the workouts include plenty of activity that will contribute to your cardiovascular and overall physical health.

Once you become comfortable with the program, you may choose to purchase the Brazil Butt Lift Deluxe upgrade, which includes two additional DVDs containing an additional cardio workout, a standing abs workout and an upper cuts workout designed to tone and shape your arms. If your primary goal is to simply whip your buttocks and thighs into shape, the standard Brazil Butt Lift weight loss program should suffice.

Pros

    • Offers realistic results in only 6 days.
    • Contributes to total body fitness, not just the buttocks.
    • Relatively inexpensive.
    • Includes meal plans.
    • Customizable for various body types and fitness levels.
    • Improves cardiovascular health.
    • High-energy pacing with lively instructor and upbeat music.

Cons

    • Requires some support equipment.
    • Only includes three workout DVDs.

Intent of Fitness Program

The intent of Brazil Butt Lift is obvious in its name: to lift, sculpt, tone, firm and round the buttocks, regardless of how your butt is currently shaped and sized. Brazil Butt Lift also contributes to total body fitness thanks to its Brazilian cardio workouts, which are designed to drop inches off of your waist, thighs, hips and abs. You’ll complete Brazil Butt Lift by following along with the workout DVDs, which comprise seven different routines that can be used in different combinations in accordance with the included workout calendars. The workouts are as follows:

  • Basics – 20 minutes – A basic overview of the program, including suggestions for maintaining the proper form and the unique Brazilian moves and techniques you’ll use during Brazil Butt Lift.
  • Bum Bum – 35 minutes – A combination of aggressive butt-sculpting moves and fast-paced Brazilian cardio, this workout is specifically designed to target your “boom boom.”
  • Bum Bum Rapido – 10 minutes – A shortened version of the longer Bum Bum routine which covers the basics in a schedule-friendly workout.
  • High and Tight – 35 minutes – A routine using ankle weights and stretch bands to reduce, shape and elevate the buttocks.
  • Sculpt – 50 minutes – An extended full body workout that tightens, tones and sculpts the muscles of your upper and lower body.
  • Cardio Axe – 30 minutes – A fat-burning cardio workout based on Brazilian dance music.
  • Tummy Tuck – 20 minutes – Floor exercises and aerobic moves designed to flatten and firm your abs.

When you purchase Brazil Butt Lift, you’ll receive the following materials:

  • 7 workouts on 3 DVDs
  • Booty Makeover Guide (including customized workout calendars)
  • Fat-Burning Foods (customizable meal plans with Brazilian recipes)
  • TriAngle Training Workout Cards (quick, portable overviews of the moves and exercises)
  • Measurement Tracker Card (with a tape measure for tracking your weight loss progress in inches)
  • 6-Day Slimdown Plan (an abbreviated workout plan used by supermodels before photo shoots)
  • Strength Band (a resistance band used for lower-body sculpting exercises)
  • Bum Bum Rapido Workout (a 10 minute bonus workout targeting the buttocks)

Primary Areas Worked

Brazil Butt Lift works by targeting the gluteal muscles of the buttocks, including the gluteus maximum, gluteus medius and gluteus minimus. The program refers to this as TriAngle Training. Instead of focusing on a single motion (as would be the case with a stair climber or other exercise machine), Brazil Butt Lift works your buttocks from multiple angles. This results in a round, lifted butt that’s achievable regardless of your current body type.

Brazil Butt Lift’s TriAngle Training also causes weight loss in the thighs, hips and waist, mostly due to the aerobic activity involved in many of the exercises. The Tummy Tuck workout targets the abs and core. All of the included cardio workouts contribute to total body fitness and cardiovascular health, making the program an excellent stepping stone for those who wish to target their buttocks, thighs and waist and improve their overall cardiovascular health before preparing for a more rigorous and aggressive fitness program.

Program Length/Frequency

According to Beachbody, it’s possible to see noticeable results from Brazil Butt Lift within six days of starting the program, so long as you follow the included workout plans. However, the entire program lasts between 60 and 90 days depending on your goals and how you choose to customize the program.

The frequency with which you’ll work out when using Brazil Butt Lift will depend on your use of the Booty Blueprint included in the Booty Makeover Guide. You can customize your schedule based on your butt type and the amount of progress you wish to make.

The workouts themselves are relatively brief, ranging from roughly 30 minutes for the cario routines to 50 minutes for the sculpting exercises. All of the workouts can be completed from home, and none require access to gym equipment.

Effectiveness/Results of the Program

Actual user reviews of Brazil Butt Lift indicate that the program is highly effective and offers results within as little as a week of starting the routines. You can improve your results further by following the included meal plans and choosing a plan that best fits your current butt type. After 90 days of using the program, you should notice inches dropping off of your waist, hips, thighs and butt, though actual weight loss results will vary by individual.

The user reviews themselves highlight some of the important characteristics of the program:

  • After one month of Brazil Butt Lift, many users notice a reduction in cellulite.
  • Some of the moves are difficult at first but become easier upon repeat viewings.
  • The workouts are doable even for those who are significantly overweight.
  • The instruction provided by Leandro is clear and motivational.
  • Although the program is marketed primarily to women, plenty of men use Brazil Butt Lift with positive results as well.
  • The highly energized music is fun and helps with motivation, especially in the Cardio Axe workout video (which mostly involves dance).

Equipment/Space Requirements

While Brazil Butt Lift does not require any expensive gym equipment and comes with the resistance bands you’ll need to complete the workouts in the videos, you’ll need to supply some gear of your own in order to get the most out of the program. A yoga mat or gym mat will make the floor exercises more comfortable, and a pair of comfortable cross-training shoes is a must for the cardio and sculpting workouts. As you become more experienced with the program, you may find yourself looking for a strength band with more resistance than the one included in the package.

Brazil Butt Lift isn’t quite as aggressive as other Beachbody programs such as Turbo Fire and P90X, though some users will still find it worthwhile to utilize a heart rate monitor. Other necessary materials, such as a water bottle and absorbent towel, should already be at your disposal.

Physical Requirements

The Brazil Butt Lift fitness program is intended for virtually anyone seeking to tone their buttocks, hips and thighs, regardless of their current physical fitness. There’s no heavy lifting required, as most of the exercises suggested by the program involve fast-paced aerobic activity that even beginners can follow along with. Widget callback for site

Brazil Butt Lift can be customized and applied to virtually any buttocks type, including the following:

  • Pear shaped: Leandro recommends the Slim and Shape Plan, which rounds the buttocks and slims bulges while maintaining a naturally voluptuous shape.
  • Too flat: Leandro recommends the Lift and Shape Plan, which adds volume to the buttocks muscles and shapes and tones in order to achieve a fuller appearance.
  • Too big: Leandro recommends the Slim and Lift Plan, which allows you to burn fat and minimize bulges while reshaping and lifting your butt.
  • Combination of issues: Leandro recommends the Classic Program, a balanced workout routine that results in a firmer, toner and more shapely butt.

Support

Brazil Butt Lift is supported by Beachbody, the same company responsible for popular fitness programs including Turbo Fire, Insanity and P90X. As such, those who purchase the program receive full access to the Beachbody Message Boards in which program users and fitness experts are available to discuss their experiences and offer advice. You’ll also have access to the following customer support channels:

  • Live chat
  • Email web form
  • FAQ database
  • 24/7 free phone

Cost

The Brazil Butt Lift weight loss program costs three installment payments of $19.95, plus $12.95 for shipping and handling. If you’d prefer, you can make a single payment of $59.95 when checking out from the Beachbody store in order to complete your order. You can also upgrade to Expedited Shipping for $9.95, allowing you to receive the Brazil Butt Lift package in 2 to 4 business days.

If you’re not completely satisfied with the program, Beachbody will refund your entire purchase price (minus shipping and handling) up to 30 days from the time of your order.

Summary

Brazil Butt Lift is an ideal weight loss program for those who are mainly looking to improve the tone, shape and overall appearance of their butt, waist and thighs. Although the program does contribute to overall fitness, those seeking a more well-rounded total body workout program such as P90X or Turbo Fire many only use Brazil Butt Lift as a supplementary program. However, Brazil Butt Lift pulls no punches and reveals its intentions right in its title, and it’s an extremely effective program for its purpose.

Brazil Butt Lift is highly convenient because you can complete the workouts in your own home, and you can even use the included workout cards to do the exercises when you don’t have access to a TV and DVD player. The program requires no additional equipment beyond shoes, lightweight clothing and a mat, all of which you probably already own anyways.

The workouts included in Brazil Butt Lift are fast-paced, easy to follow and fun, which is important given the fact that the entire program is spread across only three DVDs. Brazil Butt Lift is a worthwhile investment for anyone looking to shape up their butt for beach season, and the 30 day refund policy reduces the risk of purchasing the program.
