LES MILLS BODYATTACK™
BODYATTACK™ is a simple, high-intensity group exercise-to-music class that’s fully optioned to cater for all fitness levels. You’ll experience high-energy sports training moves for cardiovascular fitness, along with upper and lower body conditioning exercises for building strength.
So describe a typical class.
BODYATTACK™ is designed around a 55-minute two-peak format with 11 music tracks. Each track has a different exercise focus to challenge your cardio fitness and stamina.
The focus in the opening track is on big, simple aerobic moves to get the body warm.
This track will take you through an increasing range of moves and footstrikes, preparing the body for the aerobic action ahead.
Step up the intensity and range of movement and get into your personal training 'zone' ahead of the peak track to follow.
This is where the class hits its first intensity peak, putting the body under load through quick-fire plyometric exercises often used in sports training.
Upper body conditioning
Time to bring the heart rate down and recover, as well as building strength. The focus here is on shoulders, chest, triceps and core conditioning work for toning and shaping the upper body.
Loosen up again with some free and patterned running and get the legs ready to fire again.
It's now time to test your speed and agility with a big mix of moves and have fun with some class interaction.
Challenge your cardio systems with a series of work-recovery blocks.
The final peak where you dig deep and push through powerful moves for maximum effort. Enjoy the group dynamic at the heart of BODYATTACK™.
Lower body conditioning
Time to recover the heart rate while conditioning the lower body for great shape, condition and tone.
Congratulations, you made it. Time to recover and stretch.
What do i need to bring?
Make sure you have a good pair of shoes for foot stability. Dress in comfortable clothes and bring along a towel and water bottle.
How Fit do I need to be?
BODYATTACK™ is for everyone with moderate fitness levels. Because the moves are simple you don’t need to be especially well co-ordinated.
How often should I take a class?
Classes are best done with a rest day between them. For best results try and attend three BODYATTACK™ classes a week.
