While en route to meet trainer Ryan Anthony at an Equinox gym in New York City, my anxiety sky rockets. We’re about to embark on a three-week quest together: Anthony has been tasked with “fixing” my lifelong lack of derriere, somehow sculpting a “C” curve where there has always been a stubborn “I,” just with exercise—and in only six sessions.
But it’s not Anthony’s ability that has me uneasy; this is a man who is known as “The Glutes Whisperer.” I expect that anyone who has taken ownership of such a label has to be a hard-ass (both figuratively and literally, of course).
In every hour-long session, Anthony usually put me through three circuits of three moves each. A few of the exercises required heavier gym equipment, but several of them only used bodyweight, a kettlebell, or some dumbbells. Try some of our favorites, demonstrated below. (And a bonus: You might notice that your thighs are firmer and more toned as well. Go with it.)
