Leandro Carvalho knows butts. And for a long time, thanks to his Brazil Butt Lift infomercial, the world knew it. Aside from commercials, I also voice long form commercials (aka infomercials) and was fortunate to have the opportunity to voice the show (anytime you get paid to say the word “booty” about 50 times and get paid, it’s a good day!) and was recently thinking what ever happened to Leandro Carvalho?
First, a little background on Leandro, according to the Beachbody website: Leandro is a fitness innovator who brings many influences from his native Brazil to his training techniques. His exercise techniques are so effective, top lingerie models rely on him to help lift their backsides without adding bulk to their thighs. Many of his success stories can also be seen on the runways of Paris, Milan, and New York. In the fashion world, Leandro is known as the supermodel’s secret to a perfect butt. Armed with an extensive dance résumé and a degree in physical therapy, Leandro launched his career in New York City, where he began working with legendary choreographer Merce Cunningham. Simultaneously, Leandro earned several personal training certificates and started to formulate his own unique approach to fitness. Over the years, Leandro has seen lots of success with his Brazilian-inspired programs, which include Brazilian Groove, a cardio dance class set to hot Brazilian music, and Brazilian Body Surf, the class that brought the latest aquatic training alternative to water lovers. His signature class, Brazil Butt Lift, was named “Best Fitness Class” by New York Magazine. Leandro and his fitness programs have been featured on numerous television shows. He’s a regular guest on WB11’s morning fitness segment, and his workout programs have been showcased in Marie Claire, Time Out, New York Magazine , New York Times, Elle, Health, and Vogue.
Since the success of Brazil Butt Lift, in 2019 Leandro and Beachbody launched YOUv2. As Beachbody says: “Get ready to party, sweat, and celebrate becoming the new you every time you press play. Expect to have lots of fun with feel-good party tunes, an incredible group of ladies of all shapes and sizes, and motivation from your biggest cheerleader and trainer, Leandro. With 4 cardio-dance routines and 2 body-sculpting workouts, Leandro teaches you easy-to-follow moves, step-by-step. And the best part? He picked songs that will make you want to move and groove to the new version of you.”
Whether it’s fitness or with recovery, Leandro is all about helping people. Follow him on Instagram for more updates.
