OK, the title “NOTHING Makes You Feel Better than a BODY PUMP™ Workout” may’ve been a tiny bit misleading – because I can actually think of one thing that feels better… But the feeling you have after you’ve lifted weights for an hour in a BODY PUMP™ class and worked all your major muscles is simply incredible.
It shapes and tones your muscles using low weights and high repetitions. In fact, during a 60-minute class, you do about 800 reps of various exercises!
I’ve done BODY PUMP™ once a week for about eight years now — since the classes were first offered at my health club — and still love the way it makes me feel.
After a session, all muscles have been worked hard, and you’ve cooled down and done some relaxing stretching…. it’s a real high. (I admit, though, on days when I’m not feeling as strong as usual, I occasionally think during class, “How much longer?” — but not very often!)
If you haven’t taken a class and have the opportunity, give it a try. It’s addicting.
