Gain strength, lean and toned muscles, get fit!
BodyPump is the original barbell class that shapes, tones and strengthens your entire body. This 60-minute addictive workout challenges all of your major muscle groups by using the best weight-room exercises such as squats, presses, lifts and curls.
The key to BodyPump is THE REP EFFECT™, a breakthrough in fitness training, focusing on high repetition movements with low weight loads. This will help you achieve strength and introduce lean body muscle conditioning without creating bulk. With the latest chart topping music, highly trained instructors and your choice of weight, get the results you are looking for - and fast!
A TYPICAL CLASS
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, equalling about 800 movements in an average workout! We use specific music tracks to motivate you and push through the class with maximum effect.
A typical class runs like this:
1. 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.
2. 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.
3. 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.
Like all the Les Mills programmes, a new BodyPump class is released every three months with new music and choreography.

WHAT YOU NEED TO BRING WITH YOU
Wear whatever you feel comfortable in and whatever allows for ease of movement in exercises like squats, lunges and overhead presses.
Apart from that, bring a water bottle and towel - BODYPUMP is thirsty, sweaty work!
LEVEL OF FITNESS
Because you determine the level of weights you are using, BodyPump is suitable for all fitness levels.
Men and women, old hands and newcomers can do the class together as everyone can work at their own level.
Eventually as you get stronger you'll begin to increase your weight to ensure that your muscles are continually challenged.
