BodyPump - I kinda love it

Want to hear a story about Body Pump?  What is Body Pump you ask?  Well, lets start with that.  BodyPump is a group fitness class done using weights.


  • Improve your strength
  • Perform 70-100 repetitions per body part totaling up to 800 repetitions in a single workout
  • Improve your general fitness
  • Shape and tone your muscles
  • Protect your bones and joints from injury
  • Get into shape fast
  • Feel confident

 Years ago (before my children) I went to BodyPump classes regularly.  I LOVED them.  I actually took the 6 am classes before work and I am so NOT a morning person.  Well then I moved back to Indiana and at the time there were NO BodyPump classes anywhere near.  So sad.  Fast forward to just recently and I finally tried doing them again.

I was hooked just like the first time.  I don't know why I haven't done them before now.  I should note that I did like 4 Crossfit classes a few months ago and of course I almost died every time.   So after doing Crossfit (even for a short time) everything is easier.  I mean at least BodyPump doesn't make me want to puke most of the time.  I means sometimes the squat track can make me want to cry and lunges too but I haven't thrown up yet.

With BodyPump you work pretty much every muscle group and you lift weights and you do it to fun music.  You can go here to get a better idea of how it works.  I actually have started looking forward to this class.  I've been trying to go three times a week.  I'm sad when I miss.  Who am I?  I never used to look forward to exercise.

The weights are much lighter than regular weights but you can load up your bar if you are ready.  I am trying to make sure I get the moves done correctly before going heavier.  If you want to see some of the moves for the class check them out here.

If you haven't tried a BodyPump class I urge you to find one close and give it a shot!

P.S. I am not compensated in any way to tell you about this class.  I just love it that much.
