Class Act: Bodypump

Some people like to go about strength training on their own, but others won't touch a barbell unless they have someone telling them how and why and when...


BODYPUMP is a barbell group class that strengthens your entire body. This 60-minute workout challenges all your major muscle groups by using weight-room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls (my favorites), all coordinated to music in a group setting. BODYPUMP is a great way to tone and build your muscles with instruction, but without having to hire a personal trainer. You’ll use a step platform, a bar and a set of weights. If you’re new to weight-resistance exercise or you’re out of shape, you should start with light weights and gradually build your resistance. This class is great for anyone who is intimidated (or just has no idea what they're doing) in the weight room or who wants to add a little variation to their boring routine.

BODYPUMP is offered at many gyms nationwide and you can find a class location near you by checking out LesMills.com.
