A Typical Class
Like all the Les Mills programs, a new BODYJAM® class is produced every three months with new music and choreography. Each new class will be a different dance experience depending on what’s current and hot. Think dance school. Loosen up and get ready to jam!
Your instructor will take you through a warm up with simple moves designed to work one body part at a time, from your shoulders, to your chest, to your hips.
You’ll then move onto the rehearsal phase, where you will try some uncomplicated but ultra-fun dance combinations that follow the latest music and hottest dance trends. Each rehearsal phase is followed by a complete bust-out performance where you go crazy with the moves you’ve just learned. Following these you’ll get to take a breather in the recovery phases.
The final groove down brings you to the end of the class, with plenty of stretching for your worked-out muscles.
How often should you take a class?
Why put a limit on fun? We say a BODYJAM class a day keeps the doctor away.
