Body Pump

BODYPUMP™ is the original barbell class that strengthens your entire body. This 60-minute workout challenges all your major muscle groups by using the best weight-room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls. Great music, awesome instructors and your choice of weight inspire you to get the results you came for – and fast! Like all the LES MILLS™ programs, a new BODYPUMP™ class is released every three months with new music and choreography. The Benefits are : Burn up to 600 calories per class for fat loss Improve your strength Improve your general fitness Shape and tone your muscles Improve your bone density (helps ward off osteoporosis) Come away feeling strong and confident BODYPUMP™ is designed to improve strength and endurance in the major muscle groups and, in doing so, burn calories. We use carefully chosen music tracks to guide you through the class with maximum effect. The usual length of each class is 60 minutes. A typical class consists of : BODYPUMP™ begins with a warm-up to get your body moving, using light weights only. Your instructor will then guide you through the main part of the workout, focussing on each of the major muscle groups, including your chest, back, shoulders, and abdominals. We’ve got all the important muscles covered, and we guarantee you’ll be feeling the burn by the time you’re on to the cool down. Lastly, down tempo music will accompany you while you stretch your muscles out to finish the workout and help reduce the risk of muscle soreness or injury. I have experienced that not a lot of guys go to these classes as they feel it would be too easy. Let me tell you from personal experience this "body pump ain't no joke", it is harder than doing your regular sets in the gym, I challenge you to go to a pump class and lift less weight than the instructor but complete the class.
