Is Booty Maxx Worth A Try?
Problematic.Inexpensive, compact, and nifty-looking—but flimsy, according to customer reviews. There are other resistance band systems on the market, just as compact, at reasonable prices, but far more durable and offering the versatility to really work your whole body, not just your glutes. Points for including a workout video and reminding folks that diet comes into play along with exercise, but really not worth the purchase.

Word on the Street about Booty Maxx
Because this product is readily available on Amazon, there were plenty of customer reviews to read through. Though not overly expensive, the product received an overall mediocre score from its buying customers—2.9 out of 5 stars—which is not convincing when looking to invest your money.

Like these purchasing customers, the main complaints centered on the fact that the product was cheaply made and not sturdy enough to last long term. Many people felt the board would not even hold their weight, let alone last long enough for them to get a decent workout in, and the upright pole gave no support at all. Because of the structure of the board—which does not allow you to increase the resistance level, and the band supplied is a lightweight beginner level—you will be kicking your leg back for quite some time to really feel a burn. 30 minutes per workout is the consensus for actual results, but the Booty Maxx may not last you through a workout.
Also noted was the fact the company does not clearly specify that Booty Maxx has a maximum weight limitation of 220 pounds (100 Kilograms).
While I like the fact that Booty Maxx is trying to promote better health overall, offering a workout DVD and nutritional guide along with the board, the problem lies in the actual durability in the product you are buying, as many of the resistance bands are snapping on customers. A lot of people were left wondering if they should just purchase resistance bands by themselves and be done with the hassle of Booty Maxx.
Booty Maxx is a body-sculpting device available for purchase on both infomercials and websites like Amazon. It is best known for its “As Seen On TV” commercials, where you will see a woman standing on a board, holding a handle, kicking her leg to the side and behind with a resistance band attached to her ankle. Tekno Products, which produces this strength resistance product, offers a 30-day money back guarantee on their product if you are not satisfied with its effectiveness.

The Science (or Lack Thereof) Behind Booty Maxx
Resistance training is based on the principle that muscles of the body will work to overcome a resistance force when they are required to do so. When you do resistance training repeatedly and consistently, your muscles become stronger.
Resistance training has always been recommended to tone and shape muscles, as well as burn fat overall and help in weight management. Muscle groups can be targeted with resistance training; fat loss cannot. But the fact you’re moving your body in the first place is going to burn calories, and hopefully burning enough of them the fat goes as well. So the science behind Booty Max is sound. It does target mostly the gluteus muscles (bottom, tush), quadriceps, and calf muscles, but those same exercises can aid in hip movement and leg strength. It offers a resistance band in the handle to work upper body as well, but the main target is those glutes.
