Total body workout
Using light to moderate weights with lots of repetition, BODYPUMP™ is a total body workout. Instructors will coach you through the scientifically proven moves and techniques pumping out encouragement, motivation, and great music. This program is based on “The Rep Effect,” a proven formula that exhausts muscles using light weights, while performing high repetitions; this is the secret to developing lean, athletic muscles. You will leave class with a feeling of accomplishment.
- Build strength
- Work all major muscles
- Improve bone health
- Burn up to 540 calories per class
What do I need for a BODYPUMP™ class?
All you need is comfortable workout clothes, supportive shoes, a drink bottle, and a sweat towel. During the class you’ll use a weight bar, weight plates, and a step. These will be supplied in the class.
How strong do I need to be?
BODYPUMP™ instructors provide options to suit everyone. It’s a good idea to start with really light weights or even just a bar. Start slowly with just one to two classes a week and build up from four or five tracks to a full class. You’ll find your fitness and strength improve over a number of sessions.
How often should I do a BODYPUMP™ 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.
Can I suggest a song?
Absolutely! Please visit the LES MILLS Suggest a Song page.
I’m pregnant. Can I still do BODYPUMP™?
Safety is our number one priority, so we recommend talking with your doctor or midwife who will advise you appropriately as they have the best knowledge of your medical history. Also, chat to your class instructor beforehand to let them know you’re pregnant. They’ll suggest some modifications for you throughout the class.
