Les Mills PUMP will Pump You Up and Slim You Down

Pump up the sweat with Les Mills PUMP.

I’ve never been a huge fan of group fitness classes. I’m not entirely sure why, maybe because I’m a control freak and do what I want to do when I want to do it,  especially during my workouts. I have a short attention span, so maybe it’s not having the freedom to walk out of the room 10 minutes in to go lift some weights. I usually do yoga in a group class setting so I CAN’T walk out, without appearing rude at least, because I know I need the help with flexibility. The one class that can hold my attention though is Les Mills BODYPUMP because it incorporates my exact workout style.

I hate cardio, so I usually try to take minimal breaks and do full-body exercises while weight lifting to keep my heart rate up. Therefore, for the most part, my weight training can double as cardio. This is the exact set-up of a Les Mills PUMP workout: low weight, high reps to gain cardiovascular fitness while sculpting long, lean muscles.

Les Mills, who brought BODYPUMP to gyms around the world, has packaged up their popular fitness class, put the instructors and music onto seven workout DVDs, wrapped them up with a barbell, and are willing to send it all straight to your home, all so if you can’t—or won’t—make it to the gym, you can get the benefits and atmosphere of a BODYPUMP group class in your very own home. No excuses.

The Les Mills PUMP Program Includes:

  • 7 Les Mills PUMP DVDs
  • Padded barbell with two five-pound weight plates and two 10-pound weight plates
  • Fitness Guide
  • Get Lean Nutrition Guide
  • Measuring tape and tracker card

    I love Body Pump!! I saw an infomercial for this and was very tempted since I can’t get to the gym often during the summer (b/c of the kids) but the $199.00 price tag scared me off.

    This looks really exciting. I’ve taken a few body pump classes and I love the crap out of it, but its not easy for me to get there. So this would be a really good alternative.

    I’ve been told that a BodyPUMP class would be perfect for me, but it personally terrifies the bejesus out of me! Weights! At a fast pace?! Excuse me while I flee for my Spinfit.

    And, to be honest, I’d love to get this and give it a shot, but the $200 price tag (if they even ship[ped]) to the UK is enough to put me off trying it at home.

    Alas, I’ll need to wait until I’m a wee bit more fit to try it out in class.

    OK so now I have to go check this out at my gym. It scares me a little too and also about a 30 minute drive to the gym that has weekend classes, but all my online fitness friends are talking about it. I may hate it, but at least tried, right? Too expensive to “try” at home, so motivated to catch a class soon. Thanks for the review!

    I think you can get this without the barbell and it may be less expensive. I already have a barbell I would use. Maybe I’ll sub Jari Love DVDs!!!

    I was just on their website http://www.lesmillspump.com. You’re right, it is a bit of money, but I see that you could try it out for $14.95 and they give you free shipping. Yeah, I know, you still have to pay for it, but at least this way I get to try it before I commit. This article intrigued me and I’ve seen the infomercial several times. I’m inclined to try it. I work more than full time and I have a small child too. Who has time for the gym? I’m going to suspend my gym membership if I like it. That way I can justify the purchase.

    I was hesitant to spend the money at first, but after 1 week, I noticed a huge improvement in my upper body and even have been complimented on my legs recently. I attribute that to all the lunges and squats I do in my LM pump workouts. Great music and great that they start with the 20 minute DVD and slowly build up to 55 minutes. The Lean Eating Guide has some great ideas for fueling your body too.

    Ihave been doing body pump at my gym for over 14 years. My gym just went under new management and canceled my membership. I no longer will be going to that gym. I need to purchase this set. How/where can I order this???
