LES MILLS BODYVIVE™
BODYVIVE™ is the latest exercise-to-music program from Les Mills.
It is a low-impact, 55-minute class, integrating:
- Aerobic exercise for heart fitness.
- Resistance training for strength and stability.
- Stretching and mobility work.
Using VIVE™ balls and VIVE™ tubes, you enjoy a varied workout that activates and empowers your body.
Like all Les Mills™ group fitness formulas, BODYVIVE™ combines the power of choreographed moves, inspiring music and motivating instructors. A new class is released every three months with new music and new choreography.
So describe a typical class
BODYVIVE™ consists of 12 working tracks, which provide a full-body workout where participants set their own pace.
Classes start with a simple warm-up and continue with alternating 'heart fitness' and 'functional strength' blocks, before a final block of core and restorative exercises.
The basic structure is fixed, but the moves and music will change when a new class is released every three months.
VIVE™ balls and VIVE™ tubes are used in some of the tracks because of the opportunities they offer to exercise the body in different ways, and at optional intensity levels.
Who's it for?
BODYVIVE™ is ideally suited to active adults in their 40s, 50s or 60s, who seek the motivation and benefits of low-impact group exercise that delivers results.
Who do I need to bring?
Bring water and a towel. Wear comfortable clothing - yes, a T-shirt and track pants are fine. Turn up with the desire to get active and have some fun.
Friends are highly recommended!
How fit do I need to be to do BODYVIVE™?
First-timers do not need to be fit - just physically active and able to move freely.
We recommend that people obtain the advice of a medical professional before starting any fitness regime.
How often should people do BODYVIVE™?
There is no prescribed frequency. Les Mills suggests three times a week, in conjunction with other physical activities.
What type of music is used, and why?
BODYVIVE™ is choreographed predominantly to popular, mainstream music from the 1960s and 1970s. The music is easy to listen to and familiar to BODYVIVE™ participants.
