Violet Zaki has clear instruction and is easy to follow. Program starts with kickboxing cardio and finishes up with standard (squats/lunges) toning for the lower body. The scenery, set on a beach, is nice. Nothing too innovative with this program, just proven staple exercises.

Work your rear view in a variety of ways....

"This 45 minute workout is led by Violet Zaki, she is joined by two female exercisers, one who shows beginning or low impact modifications. They are exercising on a beach with the ocean just behind them. All you need is a pair of 2-5 lb weights and a mat if you don't have carpet.

This workout is split up into sections, kickboxing where you will do front, back and roundhouse kicks, then you will grab your weights and do some squats and various lunges (front, rear and side some adding leg lifts). Then there is a dance inspired section where you will do plies, standing leg lifts to the side, rear and diagonal in various tempos, finally you will do some yoga poses such as downward facing dog, 3 point pose, chair pose and tree pose.

You finish out on the floor where you will do a very brief bridgework segment before going into the cooldown and stretch. There is also a brief bonus routine that Violet leads all by herself.

This isn't a bad routine, it has a nice variety although some of the moves seemed a bit uncomfortable to me. Such as the side lunges into leg lifts, which could be modified into a 4 count move rather than adding the leg lift. Also during the kickboxing segment the roundhouse kicks are performed quite fast as they do 3 kicks in a row, I modified this and did 2 knee lifts and 1 roundhouse kick instead which felt more comfortable. Violet Zaki is a black belt in martial arts and has good form and can execute these well, but not all of us are as experienced as she is.

This workout is beginner/intermediate level, although I wouldn't recommend for complete beginners as there are some tricky moves in here that one can injure themselves doing if they do it incorrectly. There isn't any instruction on most of the moves, they just go right into it. For those more experienced, this workout isn't very challenging but is nice for something a little different. Violet Zaki does a good job in this video, plus she has a set of abs that I wouldn't mind having either. Overall I give this one three and half stars."
Wished there were more reviews before I purchased....

"Unfortunately, I went off of the one review that was listed here alone when making the decision to buy this DVD. Big mistake. Best Butt Fast offers a variety of exercise moves, all targeted to shape your butt and thigh areas, but when I purchased this I wasn't aware that there was a kickboxing section right after the warm up (I have bad knees and therefore can't stand kickboxing), nor did I realize the yoga component at the end was as lengthy as it was - it takes up almost 20 minutes of this 45 minute workout, and I am not a big yoga fan either.

Overall it is a decent DVD, but I will likely stick with my stability ball workouts and only do various sections of this DVD if that, as the standing floor work is KILLER, and what I'd initially hoped I would find on this DVD when I bought it. I've read the reviews for Self's Sleek and Slim Fast and will be trying that out. Best Butt Fast is somewhat decent, I will likely give it some time to see if I can get into the yoga piece - otherwise, I guess I can always re-sell it on e-Bay."
Very good workout!

"This was a challenging and effective lower body toning workout lead by a good instructor. I liked the variety of exercises and the yoga component at the end. This is a good 40 minute lower body routine to put in a monthly rotation. I would consider it to be intermediate level"
