Hey Hey! We are here with some fitness inspiration on a Wednesday. A portion of this post originally appeared on Brooklyn Active Mama as my very first guest post. I shared with you Why I Joined the Les Mills Instructor Tribe a few weeks ago. Now I am sharing a few specifics on why you should give the popular original barbell weight class BODYPUMP a shot!
10 REASONS WHY YOU SHOULD TRY LES MILLS BODYPUMP
- You BURN CALORIES!
- I’ve learned to appreciate a DIVERSE SELECTION OF MUSIC. When I was growing up, I only listened to gospel, rap, and R&B. Now I bob my head to everything in just about every store I go in because I recognize music for the masses.
The Pharmacist in me has to share the health benefit for ladies and their future. It decreases the risk of OSTEOPOROSIS (condition in which a decrease in the density of bones weakens the bones and can lead to fractures)! Sorry a little bit of medical gibberish here
- Laymen’s terms: – You have STRONG BONES!
- You get more TONED not Bulky.
- You get STRONGER.
- You get cardio benefits as well as the class is a full hour = BETTER ENDURANCE.
- INCREASED METABOLISM a major positive seeing as how women’s metabolism begins to decrease at age 20 by 2% each decade.
- Better POSTURE!
- ANYONE can do it at his or her own pace and weight selection.
- My favorite; It’s a GROUP EFFORT! Weights can be challenging and it’s motivating to do them with others while having an instructor guide you in safety and effective target ranges. Besides, who wants to finagle with the machines out on the floor?
