DESCRIBE A TYPICAL CLASS
BODYATTACK™ is a 55-minute class with two aerobic sections to challenge your cardio fitness and stamina. Muscle conditioning will strengthen and tone your entire body.
The focus in the opening track is on big, simple aerobic moves to get the body warm.
2. MIXED IMPACT
This track will take you through an increasing range of moves and footstrikes, preparing the body for the aerobic action ahead.
Step up the intensity and range of motion and get into your personal training ‘zone’ ahead of the peak track to follow.
This is where the class hits its fi rst intensity peak, putting the body under load through quick-fire plyometric exercises often used in sports training.
5. UPPER BODY CONDITIONING
Time to bring the heart rate down, recover and build strength. The focus here is on shoulders, chest, triceps and core-conditioning work for toning and shaping the upper body.
Loosen up with some free and patterned running and lift your heart rate again.
Test your speed and agility with a big mix of sports-inspired moves and have fun with some class interaction.
Challenge your cardio system with a series of work-recovery blocks.
The final peak where you dig deep and push through powerful moves for maximum effort and fitness results.
10. LOWER BODY CONDITIONING
Strengthen and tone the lower body including the legs and abdominals.
Congratulations, you made it. Time to recover and stretch.
WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
A good pair of shoes for foot stability. Dress in comfortable clothes and bring a towel and water bottle.
HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?
BODYATTACK™ is for anyone who wants to get fit, stay fit and get fitter. There are low-impact options so you can enjoy the class regardless of your fitness level and the moves are simple so you don’t need to be especially well coordinated.
HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TAKE A CLASS?
Have a rest day between classes. For best results, try and attend three BODYATTACK™ classes a week.
