If you, like us, are getting inspired to give your workout routine a swift kick thanks to all of our Hottest Trainer contenders, you may want to gyrate over to the just-landed BUTIK studio in Santa Monica. Brought to you by A-list trainer Bizzie Gold (you may have spotted her on Kris Jenner's show), the new fitness spot promises to help bring your sexy back through a combo of tribal dance, yoga and plyometrics known as BUTI.
We recently had a chat with the unapologetically sexy trainer and BUTI founder—who's worked with Julia Roberts and Jennifer Love Hewitt—about her high-energy hip-circling, butt-bumping methods. "I wanted to bring this to Western women to help us get our power back and learn to be sexy as an expression of our power instead of trying to be sexy to get attention of men," she tells us. "Not to mention, tribal dance generally focuses on squatting positions with high energy movements—so nice bums are also in store."
Feelin' the groove and got the big bucks? Monthly memberships range from $850 to $2,500 and include four to six classes, personalized workout plans designed by Gold herself, two nutrition consultations, meal programs and more. Plus, members can get a total pantry revamp, hire their own personal chefs and more through the studio's health concierge service.
