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
