BODYPUMP® is designed to transform your body by developing strength and endurance in major muscle groups and, in doing so, burn calories and tone your body. This is where THE REP EFFECT™ comes in – commanding 70-100 repetitions per body part, equaling about 800 movements in an average workout! We use specific music tracks to motivate you and push through the class with maximum effect, and like all the Les Mills programs, a new BODYPUMP® class is released every three months with new music and choreography.
A Typical Class
BODYPUMP® begins with a warm-up using light weights only, to get your body moving and slowly starts to introduce your muscles to the workout.
Your instructor will then guide you through the main workout, focusing on each of the major muscle groups, sculpting your legs, chest, back, shoulders, and abdominals. We’ve got all the important muscles covered, and we guarantee you’ll be feeling the burn.
Finally, down tempo music will accompany you while you cool down. Stretch your muscles to finish the workout and help reduce muscle soreness and assist your recovery.
How often should you take a class?
BODYPUMP will really challenge all of your major muscle groups so we recommend you do no more than two to three classes a week and make sure you have a day off in between. Add two to three cardio classes into the mix and you’ll shape and tone your body in no time.
