For this version of Act-Fit Friday, I’m letting you in on all the fun that occurred with the latest Les Mills program release BODYCOMBAT 56.
***Before we get started, please stop by Kita’s blog and check out my guest post. Kita’s conversations on Fridays are one of the things I look forward to each week. Go see what happened with me and the Po Po!!!***
We just so happened to launch this release during the time that the 4th Holiday was approaching, so I opted to get in the spirit for 1 class and take a break from the standard official color of green.

Greetings PFL! As you know, I teach Les Mills BODYPUMP; the original barbell weight class that strengthens and tones the body. It’s an hour long class that works all the major muscle groups! I teach it twice a week and usually take it one other time from another instructor.
Every 3 months, the international company sends it’s instructors brand new choreography for every program that we teach. It is like CHRISTMAS year round. BODYPUMP 85 is the second release for 2013 and oh it definitely didn’t disappoint, so let’s jump right into it.
I love group fitness! That is not a secret. It can work wonders in the weight loss department with all the friendly faces in the room and the motivating instructors to cheer you along. One of my goals here at PFL is to inspire readers to stay active and get fit. Group fitness is one of many ways to do so. It just happens to be the way that I choose to stay in shape and it has become one of my passions as an adult. When blogging about fitness, I would like to connect with some like-minded people be it instructors or people who take classes and hopefully tempt some newbies to try a group fitness class. One of the new things here at PFL will be review of classes. So after teaching this new release 6 times, here we go with my first PFL review of Les Mills BODYCOMBAT 54.
Just in case you are unaware of what this class is, here is a typical intro you’d get from me if you came to visit. Continue reading →
