A Workout You'll Love
A group fitness class like Les Mills BodyPump feels more like fun than a workout. You're surrounded by your gym buddies, workout out to the latest motivational beats and on your way to a sleeker physique. What's not to love about that!
The Rep Effect
BodyPump features what's knows as the 'Rep Effect', a proven formula to develop lean, athletic muscle. Increasing this muscle mass will help your body to burn more calories, therefore reducing your waistline.
"I love Edinburgh BodyPump classes. I can tell I've had a really good toning session, and I've noticed an improvement in my upper body and glutes." (Village Gym BodyPump Fan)
Tone and Trim
If you're hitting the treadmill or cross trainer in a bid to lose weight, you'll certainly torch calories, though it will take longer to see physical changes.
As our BodyPump class works the whole body, you'll see a visible change in your physique, with righter abs, more toned arms and a trimmer waist. Once you see the weight loss results, you'll be more motivated to keep at it.
"My abs are finally showing! Once you've lost that top layer of body fat, the toning exercises from BodyPump really start to show through. I do cardio and strength sessions in the gym to burn cals and BodyPump to tone up the flabby bits!" (Village Gym BodyPump Fan)
Up Your Cardio Game
By increasing your cardio fitness, you strengthen your body's stamina, allowing you to workout for longer and at a higher intensity. The harder you work, the more fat you'll torch.
The intensive exercises in our BodyPump classes, combined with repetitive movements will get your heart pumping, improving your endurance and maximising weight loss results.
"I used to keel over after a thirty minute fitness class! Since I've started doing regular BodyPump sessions, I can tell I'm much fitter. I can breathe better, and work out for longer, so I'm burning more calories in one thirty minute session than I did before." (Village Gym BodyPump Fan)
Max the Metabolism
Resistance training with weights is a great calorie burner and excellent way to build muscle. As muscles repair from the workouts your body’s metabolism is increased. This means that calories are burned by BodyPump at an increased rate long after you finish your Body Pump class.
With increased muscle mass, you'll use more energy, resulting in a greater rate of weight loss.
