Justin Thomas-Sanchez, Les Mills International Master Trainer introduced us to BODYPUMP.
BODYPUMP just celebrated its 100th “release.” A new version of the workout is released every three months, so the program has been around for 25 years. BODYPUMP is the original barbell workout by global fitness leader Les Mills. It’s a high-repetition, low-weight resistance workout that tones the entire body. Participants can burn a ton of calories without doing an ounce of traditional cardio. Every day, more than one million people around the world participate in a BODYPUMP class. More than 3,300 gyms in the U.S. offer the program. The program has been around for so long because it delivers results. The music and moves change every three months to keep the workout fresh and engaging. That’s what keeps people coming back every week.
