    Just wondering if anyone does Body Pump? I started about 6 months ago and love it. I used to hate doing weights in the gym, but find it really easy to do in a class with other people and music!

    Has anyone tried it?

    There have beena few threads recently about 'toning' legs, stomachs etc. I would recommend this as a really good and fun way to 'tone' everywhere!!

    (Apologies if this has been discussed before, but I searched and couldn't find anything)

    weights are great if done properly. I do weights with a mate and it's great having someone to cheer you on! (and that rhymes far too much...)

    never heard of it - will check it out though
    I think it was 'invented' by an Australian company, who made a number of different classes - all called body (something). I have tried Body Combat as well. I would not recommend this class unless you're really co-ordinated (which I'm not!!). Laughed a lot during the hour, but made a bit of an idiot of myself.

    Anyway, I think Body Pump calsses are quite widespread now. Hope you give it a go and enjoy it

    If you like doing weights anyway you might enjoy a Body Pump class. Funky music and the instructor watches to make sure you're doing everything properly. I also find it much easier to have people around me who are also suffering, makes the whole weights experience much easier to bear!!

    lol. it does sound pretty poor really but seeing the bicep boys winge in agony is probably worth it.

    i like my bbing hard and simple. I train at a place called Thor's Gynasium. It's basically a garage on an industrial estate in the Midlands. Pretty damn hardcore. I think training hard with guys who share a similar drive to get big is definitely am incentive, but only to a backdrop of clanging iron and American Cheese Rock. mmmmmm. going down now actually.

    Obviously if you're really into training with weights, it probably won't be your thing - or as you put it "pretty poor".

    Anyway, it was more of a suggestion to people who don't want to go in for hardcore weight training, but would like to gain some strength, and 'tone' their bodies. I'm not after massive muscles (I am a girl and want to look pretty, not masculine )

    lol- no offence. i can't say i'd particularly fancy the muscle bound female.

    I don't think they have Body Jam classes in my gym, but if they involve dance and co-ordination they're probably not for me anyway. I am traumatised by the body combat class I did, which involved doing a flying kick thing towards the mirror, about 10 times in a row. Really embarrasing when everyine else has landed and you're still way up in the air...on your own...so everyone can see you look like an idiot in the mirror...10 times over
