Rated 5 out of 5 by Verified Reviewer Awesome workout!
I have been doing it for 7 weeks and the results are awesome! Even with Thanksgiving being in the way, I still lost about 5 lbs (I simply don't need to lose more) and got a great definition in my arms, legs, butt. I can wear mini skirts and mini dresses now and my legs look absolutely phenomenal - and my legs used to be a problem for me, I used to wear jeans all the time to hide them! My chief complain with this program is that none of my work pants fit me anymore, they just hang lose and I have to go shopping now to get a whole new wardrobe! :)

What a waste of money....the music is awful, that guy is sooo annoying and it is soo boring! Uhh what a joke. I have always been so impressed with beachbody programs but this is embarassing. I will be sticking with p90x and insanity. I just wanted a great program that could really focus on my lower body. :(

Rated 4 out of 5 by ntykty Targets my problem areas effectively
I was very overweight (borderline obese) about three years ago. I've been at my target weight for about two years. I'm female, 37 years old, 5'7-1/2" tall, and maintain my weight somewhere between 135 and 140 pounds. While I'm at my target weight, there are parts of my body I'm not particularly thrilled with, these were in order of most dissatisfying first: my butt, my upper thighs directly below my butt, and my tummy. After using BBL, my butt is no longer on my list of dissatisfying parts. Now, my tummy is number one on that list and I'm still working on the area of my upper thighs directly below my butt. BBL is helping with this. I am not fabulously fit and probably would not have been able to do the BBL workouts three years ago. I do the vast majority of the exercises at level two, and have since I got them. I passed the pencil test before I ever started the series. Still, I feel that BBL is the correct level of difficulty for me. Some of the workouts are quite lengthy because on most days two workouts are recommended. After I either fix my upper thigh issue or find that BBL is no longer helping me to make progress in that area, I will purchase something that focuses on my final problem area, my tummy. While working on my tummy, I intend to mix in some BBL so those problem areas don't come back to haunt me. I am satisfied with the product. The videos are a little tough to follow because of the changing views between beach scenes and indoor scenes, but I adapted relatively quickly. After doing the routines a few times, you figure out what's coming and what you're supposed to do. Leandro is a little goofy. However, the bottom line is that BBL works.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Katiusza I don't like this workout
I was very excited to start BBL and shape my lower body - this is what most women want to achieve. I didn't feel satisfied after BBL working out and Leonardo (trainer's) style is just not for me.
Although I see most exercises are focused on glutes. I believe it might bring results.
I regret I did not returned dvds right away. I was hoping I'd combine BBL with my favorite workouts but soon I found forcing myself to hit "play" button with BBL dvd in player.
I will be happy to sell it or exchange for P90X.

Rated 4 out of 5 by MtnGirl Great overall program
I liked this program - it was a little tough getting used to, but once you get through each video once and get the hang of his style and the moves, it's a great workout. It actually works. I used to have a nice "bum bum" until I had kids, I needed something to shape it back up and this did the trick. After only 2 weeks I started noticing results. It's a little too short (4 weeks) but you can run through it twice. It would be nice to have more videos to change things up a bit (there are only 5), I may purchase the deluxe to add different videos and continue but feel they should have just been included in the 1st round - I guess they are just wanting to make more money. Many people said he was off-beat and annoying and I almost didn't buy it because of that. But, it's really not as bad as they said and I kind of like them switching between the beach and the gym so the scenery changes and you don't get bored staring at the same people and the same room every day for a month or more. Many also said you can't see their legs to know what they're doing - that's not true. If you've never worked out to a video before, I guess you might get a little confused, but I think that would be hard. I would recommend it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by yogafitness Get Ready to Tighten Up
My sister gave me this video for my birthday last year. When I started I couldn't get through 13 minutes of Bum Bum, the signature workout. After a three weeks I was able to do all of it. You feel the effect immediately. Don't feel bad if you can't do everything. These programs all have modifiers you can follow until you can challenge yourself a little bit more.
I highly recommend this program for people who want to tighten up their legs and lift their butts. You will get it here. Plus I met Leandro and he is so lovely. He makes you want to work out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by tannia13 I never thought it could b as firm and lifted!!!!
I noticed a HUGE difference especially when trying on dresses and jeans! I love this workout....it met all my expectations and I got toned arms, legs, tighs and of course a real nice booty! The only problem I've always had is my abdominals.... I've even lost inches around my waist but can't seem to get rid of the belly?? I wish Leandro could create a workout just focusing on the abs and if it is just as effective as the butt lift, I'd definately buy it ASAP!!! :) Overall, an awesome workout and I've been doing it for 6 months...so glad I decided to try it!

Rated 1 out of 5 by Bec101 No secret...
Perhaps the DVD SET of 4 works well but this ONE DVD "secret weapon" is a joke. I am a graduate of P90X and so incredibly happy with that program and results. But this DVD falls short of variety, inspiration and fun. The poor girl in the DVD, though fit and adorable, looks bored and even confused by the lack of variety. Leandro's timing is off and the overall look of the filming is cheap and seems quickly made. It is probably a huge money-maker for the company and a loss out of my pocket. Sad to be disappointed.
