Runtastic’s new app is all about that bass

runtastic butt trainer
Runtastic has already made a name for itself by offering a wide variety of targeted fitness apps, packing huge collections of guided workouts together that focus on a specific part of the body. The latest addition has Runtastic looking to get you in shape where the sun don’t shine.

Runtastic Butt Trainer is all about that bass. The app is designed to “help you lose weight, ditch the muffin top and develop that bikini body you’ve always wanted.” It consists of over 50 instructional butt workout videos that show you how to complete exercises that will get the glutes you’ve always wanted. A lifelike avatar named Angie serves as your guide to a better backside. (We aren’t sure why, but we feel a little weird about our virtual butt trainer having a name.)

Like all Runtastic apps, there is a fair amount of customization in play with Butt Trainer. There are three different levels of difficulty, and users can filter exercises that fit within their own personal fitness level. Pre-defined workouts aimed at different areas around the gluteus maximus make it easy to jump right in to a fully defined workout session. And they have been expertly titled, with names like “Rock Your Bottom,” “Runner’s Rear,” “Fanny on Fire,” and “Junk in the Trunk.”

The app is designed to serve those who don’t have immediate access to gym equipment, with workouts that can be completed anywhere — though we don’t recommend doing them just anywhere; Use some discretion. Likewise, just because you can share your butt workouts via Facebook, Twitter, and WhatsApp through the app does not mean you should berate your friends with how many squats you’ve done. You can track your progress on your own at Runtastic.com or by syncing to your MyFitnessPal account.

It’s clear that Butt Trainer is targeted mostly toward women with a female instructor and a focus on getting a “bikini booty,” but it can absolutely be used by guys as well. “You gotta have a great butt to get a great butt” is a phrase that we just totally made up but is probably true.

Runtastic Butt Trainer, the latest fitness app from Runtastic, is available to download today for Android and iOS devices. If you’re wondering if it works, I wrote this whole article while standing.
