Beach Body: Brazil Butt Lift DVD Workout Review

When I saw this commercial come across the television, I was captivated!  This workout was definitely calling my name for all the right reasons.  I have a big ol booty and this workout is marketing to have a nice tush!  My friends in the room with me had joked about me getting this, even though I think they were slightly serious as well.  I laughed with them, but in the back of my mine I kind of wanted to purchase this DVD set.  As the days went on, I kept wondering about this workout and how I should really start to do more than just run every day because clearly my butt wasn’t getting any smaller from that!  I had a mix of emotions like happy, sad, and kind of embarrassed as the title of this workout is kind of silly.  Was this another marketing scam?  Or is this a legit workout DVD that might actually help tone down this booty?
Within a couple of weeks I decided to bite the bullet and just order it.  I mean it’s not like it would hurt anything just to try it!


Leandro Carvalho is the instructor of these DVD’s and he is a trainer for many super models.  The workouts are a combination of Brazilian dance, cardio, and toning moves.  They focus on sculpting your lower-body by targeting the 3 main muscle groups in your booty.  Besides workouts for your tush, thighs, and legs, there are workouts for your arms and stomach as well.

My Opinion of Beach Body’s: Brazil Butt Lift Workout Program

Overall I think this is an awesome DVD circuit.  I picked out my body type and followed the routine they suggested.  And whewwww!  To be honest, I couldn’t even finish the full workout the first week without having to stop and take a breather in between.  When I am working out, I find that as a positive because I like to be able to feel the change in my body and feel the gross sweat dripping down my face.  Many of these videos are filled with lots of cardio while still targeting the areas of your body it is intended to.
I definitely do recommend this DVD workout series!  Specially if you are trying to get in or back into the workout game!  These DVD’s and the additional products they send you definitely kept me motivated.  Today, I still incorporate each workout into my weekly routine.
You will also need to purchase your own set of light hand weights, ankle weights, and a yoga mat for better comfort.  These are all optional items, but it definitely helps to challenge you and help you become stronger and more toned!


  • There is not a huge selection of workouts, I write this as a pro and con for a reason (see con reason).  Even though the selection is small, I started to learn the routine of the videos which helped them become easier after a few weeks and I didn’t find myself stumbling over my two feet.
  • The workouts are definitely challenging and left me feeling amazing after each workout.
  • The book they provide breaks the workout routines into body type, which I think is extremely important as we all don’t have weight in the same area, so this helps to target areas.
  • The book also has a spot to enter in start measurements and end measurements, to help track the progress!
  • The provided “health cards” are super beneficial to provide good tips.
  • They provide healthy recipes to help you get a start on a new eating habits.


  • There is not a huge selection of workouts, so I found myself repeating the instructor because I know every word he would say.
  • Too much marketing on the DVD’s for their other products that they are promoting.
