Body Pump

The world's fastest way to get in shape. There's a reason why Les Mills BODYPUMP® is the most popular Group Fitness programme in the world. It's a revolutionary weight training workout that strengthens, tones and defines every muscle in your body.

  • Improves body shape
  • Promotes muscle balance and good posture
  • Improves muscle strength and endurance
  • Increases lean muscle mass so you can burn more calories
  • Promotes muscle definition and tone
How can I be sure to do BODYPUMP® safely?

Your teacher is there to make sure you do everything correctly, but try to remember:

  • Good posture is the foundation of all exercise
  • Focus on learning the right technique at the beginning.
  • Work continuously at perfecting your technique.
  • Don't overdo the weights - start gradually increasing them after six weeks.
  • Perform the movements with control - smooth actions, not jerky.
  • Always keep your joints slightly bent, don't lock out.
  • Keep the working muscles focused, and stabilise the others.
  • Listen to your body, it will tell you if something is not right (some muscle pain is natural at first, especially if it's the same on both sides of your body. If you have pain down only one side or in the joints, check with the teacher. If the pain continues, see your doctor).
What Should I Bring?
  • Comfortable workout clothes
  • Gym shoes
  • Drink bottle and towel
How Often Should I Do BODYPUMP®?

Once you have done your first few classes of BODYPUMP® we recommend a maximum of two to three classes a week. Remember: your body needs recovery time between workouts and rest at least one day between classes.

Once you've started BODYPUMP® your nerves will soon get better at telling your muscles what to do. Your muscles adapt more slowly, but you'll notice strength gains as your body gets used to lifting weight. After about six weeks you should be feeling great, with growing strength and improved muscle tone.

Don't overdo it - if you start to increase the weights too quickly, you could get injured. Physical activity isn't a quick fix -it should become part of your lifestyle.
