Re: Body combat/ Body pump classes

Apparently it's not just a UK thing...I'm from Canada and we have Goodlife clubs that offer Body Combat and Body Pump. I love, love the Body Pump class. I take it about 3-4 times a week and have noticed definite improvement in overall tone and strength. I find it the easiest and most effective way to get my strength training done. It's really energetic and motivating - so it's not very easy to quit! Can't say anything for the Body Combat class - it's not very popular at my gym. Hope that helps...

Re: Body combat/ Body pump classes

oh cool, i think i'll give body pump a go this week then. i usually wear wrist weights when i go to regular aerobics, so it should be a good step up from that. i'm off to body combat this evening, i'll let you know what its like

Re: Body combat/ Body pump classes

well, i wasn't overly impressed with body combat. it was enjoyable though, and was a nice change to normal aerobics classes. theres lots of kicks and punches etc, which were fun. i just didn't feel like the work out was that hard, it seemed as if we were cooling down way to early, and in the conditioning part of the class the number of reps we did was pretty small. i imagine it'd be a really good class for those just starting out with excercies, but i would have preferred abit more intensity (especially for the fee they charge! abit extortionate in my view.) good class for general maintenance of fitness i imagine, but runnings free and probably works you out harder!

Re: Body combat/ Body pump classes

well good to know anyhow - i suppose that's why it's not popular at my gym! i think i remember taking it a few years ago, and not really enjoying myself.
they charge fees for classes at your gym? i don't think i could afford working out if they did at my gym...
