BODYBALANCE™ is the Yoga, Tai Chi, Pilates workout that builds flexibility and strength and leaves you feeling centered and calm. Controlled breathing, concentration and a carefully structured series of stretches, moves and poses to music create a holistic workout that brings the body into a state of harmony and balance. Like all the LES MILLS™ programs, a new BODYBALANCE™ class is released every three months with new music and choreography. (For copyright reasons this program is known as BODYFLOW™ in the USA).
I’m not very coordinated on the dance floor so what’s this class like to follow for first timers?
Challenge Level: 3/10
Did you know that besides the fact that you will learn and get better at this class each time that part of our training as group fitness instructors is that we teach the easier options so where a class may be challenging we teach options during that part of the class so that if your still getting used to the class you can keep up at your own level so you don’t feel left out. A classic example is if we were doing a class where the new move was involving a little jump or hop there would usually be an option of a low impact such as walking the move through till you feel comfortable to try the harder level or in BODYPUMP you simply start with light weights and work up to more as you improve!
How fit do I have to be?
Fitness Level: 2/10
Did you know that one of the main benefits of Les Mills classes is that they are pre choreographed meaning that it is the same music, moves and class style for 3 months before changing so chances are if you didn’t get it the first time each class from there will only get better for you as you learn!
