Want a Great Butt? Be Prepared to Work Your Ass Off with the Booty Belt!
In the ‘90s, Suzanne Somers inspired Beauty Wonkette to try the Thighmaster. Today, Kate Hudson is working to convince Beauty Wonkette to give the Booty Belt a try.
Hudson, super-fit celebrity and face of Fabletics fitness, endorsed the $115 workout device on Instagram, saying it was her “new obsession.” The post has boosted sales of the product, and garnered more than 84K likes. But will we like it, too? There's only one way to find out. Marching off to place an order.....
One week later, The Booty Belt arrived, looking like something from an indiscreet adult toy store: a big black box with a pink graphic of a rear end and giant white “Booty Belt” decal. Inside the box are TRX bands in pink, grey and black, with Velcro strips, a black foam square with that same booty graphic and an instructional DVD.
After popping in the DVD, BW listens to muscly trainer Dominic Banks, who wears a black Booty Belt T tucked into jeans, talk about how the Belt “is a story about how strong the human spirit is when spaced with adversity. It’s my way of paying homage to my mom and all the women out there.”
Okay, now Beauty Wonkette is half-inspired, half-weirded out (honestly ALOT more weirded out than inspired). Time to just watch the instructional segment of the video.
It's easy enough to wrap the belt around one's waist and move the pink stretchy bands that are attached to the belt to the back as instructed. Attaching the foot straps to one's feet requires greater finesse, but not much...lol.
The DVD takes you through a series of workouts on your forearms: kick-ups, toe touches and kick-outs. Those work the glutes. Then you move to your back for various crunches, leg lifts and holds to work my core and quads.
The Booty Belt is no joke! After completing all of the “standard” exercises, as the pamphlet calls them, Beauty Wonkette, who is no slouch btw, is shaking, sweating and tired. Try it, but know that your glutes are going to be sore tomorrow (but that's probably a good thing, right?
