Work, Work, Work, Work, Work, Work – Review of Les Mills BODYPUMP 99

I am getting more and more last minute with learning the choreography for Les Mills BODYPUMP releases.  For BODYPUMP 99, I set my alarm 2 hours before my 8:30 a.m. class to wake up and learn the second half that I was responsible for teaching during the launch that day.   Needless to say, I  was super surprised that Rihanna was on the line up, so yeah, that’s the title of this review.  No doubt, BODYPUMP 99 will have you putting in the work, work, work, work, work, work the original barbell weight style!

Les Mills BODYPUMP 100 Contest: Prepping For the Greatest Launch Ever

Last week, Les Mills hosted a BODYPUMP 100 Competition!  BODYPUMP 100 is being filmed next month in New Zeland.  Any instructor up for it was charged with sharing a story to compete for the chance to travel to New Zealand and be part of the taping.  The taping is what over 100,000 instructors world-wide use in combination with choreographed notes to learn the release.  Super exciting stuff right?  Well, we had to share a story about our first/favorite BODYPUMP release in less than 250 words.  I am sharing mine here with you today and hopefully I’m a good contender 🙂 !  So how does one participate in a launch for such a special occasion?  Well, you do so globally on January 14th, 2017 with the rest of the tribe.   Let’s talk about how we can make it memorable…

A Review of Les Mills BODYPUMP 98 TECHNO

I am a Les Mills  BODYPUMP instructor that has been teaching for 4 & ½ years in the United States. I’ve been doing sporadic reviews on this blog since it’s inception in 2012. The purpose of my reviews are for one to share any thoughts and tips that I can come up with for those of you who land here regularly and two, to have an easy reminder of the tricky/tedious things to be aware of when I return to the releases when mixing on down the line.

I invite instructors near and far to leave any additional tips and thoughts in the comments sections, pin the picture above, & utilize these reviews the same as me!  Les Mills participants and readers of PFL I always invite you to read along as well and contribute any feedback you have that I have missed.
