What are the benefits of BodyPump?
You will achieve muscle tone from BodyPump. A BodyPump class is a full-body barbell workout, that will burn calories, shape and tone your entire body, increase core strength and improve bone health.

With professional instructors and a whole class around you, as well as motivational music to work out along to, the BIG BodyPump ensures you not only enjoy your work out!
Your body will tone up as you gain muscle and as the fat drops off you will notice improved shape and definition around your body.
Who can do BodyPump?
Absolutely anyone can join the BIG BodyPump class. They would need to start on very light weights and increase steadily.
What can I expect from a Body Pump workout?
You will perform a 45 minute long workout with a class of people whilst timing repetitions to music. Your BIG BodyPump instructor will take you through a warm up with light weights initially to get you ready for the intense workout.
You then complete a muscle and cardio workout that is suitable intensity to individual needs using a barbell. Each of the major muscle groups are worked in turn including chest, back, shoulders and abdominals. This ensures maximum calorie burn and toning as it hits every area of your body.
The tempo of the music finally slows down as you perform a cool down and complete stretches to reduce muscle soreness and risk of injury.
