Well they are Les Mills Programs and they are awesome and life-changing. I definetly want anyone looking to lose weight, tone up, or just plain have fun and meet new people to click on this website and go into "Class Locator" and find classes near you. Click on the logo below for all the information!
It is great if there is a gym (like mine GoodLife Fitness) with classes you can get to and they are worth every penny and more...you get a great workout...they are very energized...the instructors are amazing and work you hard and motivate you to really great music, and you just have tons of fun! The classes fly by and you get wayyy more of a workout than walking on a treadmill or any other machine I can tell you that. Before you know it...you are addicted to them and hooked! They are truley above any other classes and can't even be compared (and trust me I have taken other classes before) So go on the site...check out The Programs and Go! I even previewed where they are in UAE already since I will be moving there sometime this year.
These are the class descriptions from the Les Mills website:
(Click on the picture and it will bring you to more about that particular class)
RPM™ is the indoor cycling workout where you ride to the rhythm of powerful music. Take on the terrain with your inspiring team coach who leads the pack through hills, flats, mountain peaks, time trials, and interval training. Discover your athlete within – sweat and burn to reach your endorphin high.
BODYATTACK™ is the sports-inspired cardio workout for building strength and stamina. This high-energy interval training class combines athletic aerobic movements with strength and stabilization exercises. Dynamic instructors and powerful music motivate everyone towards their fitness goals - from the weekend athlete to the hard-core competitor.
BODYCOMBAT™ is the empowering cardio workout where you are totally unleashed. This fiercely energetic program is inspired by martial arts and draws from a wide array of disciplines such as Karate, boxing, Taekwondo, Tai Chi and Muay Thai. Supported by driving music and powerful role model instructors strike, punch, kick and kata your way through calories to superior cardio fitness.
BODYPUMP™ is the original barbell class that strengthens your entire body. This 60-minute workout challenges all your major muscle groups by using the best weight-room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls. Great music, awesome instructors and your choice of weight inspire you to get the results you came for – and fast!
BODYSTEP™ is the energizing step workout that makes you feel liberated and alive. Using a height-adjustable step and simple movements on, over and around the step you get huge motivation from sing-a-long music and approachable instructors. Cardio blocks push fat burning systems into high gear followed by muscle conditioning tracks that shape and tone your body.
BODYFLOW™ is the Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centered and calm. Controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses to music create a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance.
RPM is my favorite...because it is hard..it is body and mind challenging...and it is really fun! I love the feeling after Track 5 when I know there are only 2 Tracks left, and then you really feel great after the class like you really accomplished something difficult. Bring a towel because you will sweat more than you ever sweat in your life!
Next up my faves are:
BodyAttack...BodyPump...BodyCombat...BodyStep...and I like BodyFlow but it is in a different category as it is a mix of Yoga, Pilates & Tai-Chi but you do sweat, it is just not as intense as the others, but it is really relaxing especially since they dim the lights. I am not into the dance ones like BodyJam, but I know a lot of girls that love it...I am just not into dancing but if you are it would be fun!
Hope everyone gets to enjoy classes like these :)
