BODYPUMP™ is for anyone looking to get lean, toned and fit – fast. Using light to moderate weights with lots of repetition, BODYPUMP™ gives you a total body workout. It will burn up to 590 calories. Instructors will coach you through the scientifically proven moves and techniques pumping out encouragement, motivation and great music – helping you achieve much more than on your own! You’ll leave the class feeling challenged and motivated, ready to come back for more. Basic stepping, just like walking up and down stairs, is at the heart of BODYSTEP™ – a full-body cardio workout to really tone your butt and thighs.
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 produced every three months with new music and choreography.
You’ll use a step platform, a bar and a selection of weights to suit your fitness level. If you’re new to resistance training, or if you’re out of shape, you should start with light weights. After a few classes you’ll know how much weight is right for you. If you’re unsure, ask your instructor.
Get your body moving, using light weights only.
Use heavier weights in Squat moves that target the big muscle groups and burn lots of calories.
Lie back on the step to work the chest, shoulders and triceps.
Target the back, glutes and hamstrings with lifts and presses.
