Les Mills BODYCOMBAT is an 55 min exercise class that lets you punch and kick your way towards your fitness goals.
Not only is it a great whole-body workout for cardio fitness, but it’s also superb for burning fat, releasing stress and improving your coordination.
The BODYCOMBAT workout combines moves from Karate, Taekwondo, Boxing, Muay Thai and Kung Fu; but don’t worry, you won’t need any martial arts experience to enjoy all the benefits of BODYCOMBAT. The expert instructor will take you though each and every move beforehand, which will include hooks, jabs, upper cuts, kicks and high knees as well. The Programme will also include functional training moves like squats, push ups and lunges as well.
CARDIO, STAMINA AND CONDITIONING
BODYCOMBAT is comparable with running when it comes to improving your stamina, while the explosive elements, combined with the non-contact nature of the class means you’re unlikely to pick up any injuries, meaning you can work out harder, for longer without any lengthy lay-offs. Also, the workouts are split into timed intervals, helping you to maximise your heart and lung capacity.
BODYCOMBAT is the perfect way to help you relive that stress. It’s not the violent element that helps unleash that fury, but merely the power and the explosive nature of the exercise that helps relieve you of all the stresses of everyday life. Combine this with the natural endorphins that are released during exercise and the many-times-proven positive effects of exercise on general mental health and you’re sure to feel better in every way after a BODYCOMBAT session.
NO SPECIAL EQUIPMENT FOR BODYCOMBAT
Just make sure you’re wearing comfortable workout clothes that won’t restrict your movement in anyway and a sturdy pair of trainers. It’s also a good idea to bring a small towel, a water bottle and a yoga mat as there will be some floor work
