BODYPUMP is the original barbell class that strengthens your entire body.

Give you a sense of achievement 


This 60 minute workout challenges all your major muscle groups by using the best weight-room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls. Great music, awesome instructors and your choice of weight inspire you to get the results you came for-and fast! 

Like all Les Mills programs, a new BODYPUMP class is produced every three months with new music and chorography.  

Describe a typical class

You’ll use a step platform, a bar and selection of weights. If your new to resistance training, or of you’re out of shape, you should start with light weights. After a few classes you’ll know how much weight is right for you. If you’re unsure, ask your instructor.

BODYPUMP Tips

Your instructor is there to make sure you do everything correctly, but try to remember:

Good posture is the foundation of all exercise-especially weight training.

Focus on learning the right technique at the beginning

Work continuously at perfecting your technique

Don’t overdo the weights-start gradually increasing them after four to six weeks.

Perform the movements with control-smooth actions, not jerky.

Always keep your joints slightly bent, don’t lock out.

Keep focused on the working muscles and stabilise the others.

Listen to your body-it will tell you if something is not right. 


What do I need to bring?

Comfortable workout gear, gym shoes, drinks bottle and towel and attitude! We supply everything else. 

How often should I do BODYPUMP?

We recommend tow to three classes a week. Your body needs recovery time between workouts so rest at least one day between classes.  

When will I notice results?

Once you’ve started BODYPUMP, your muscles will quickly adapt to this type of workout and you’ll notice strength gain as your body gets used to lifting weight. As your strength improves, you’ll start to see fat loss and improved muscle tone. 

Don’t over do it-if you start to increase the weights too quickly, you could suffer injury. Physical activity isn’t a quick fix- it should become part of your lifestyle.
