Group fitness classes are attended by millions of people each week in countries around the globe. One of the most recognized names in group fitness is Les Mills. Simply say the class name BODY PUMP and somebody somewhere will say they’ve tried it or at least heard of it.
For every one person who’s tried Les Mills classes there are hundreds who have not. Maybe they’ve held back due to fear of exercising in front of other people, perhaps the cost of a gym membership, or maybe it’s because they think it doesn’t work.
Whatever the reason, now there’s no excuse to trying Les Mills classes with the introduction of Les Mills PUMP and Les Mills COMBAT home versions of the BODY PUMP and BODY COMBA.
Home Workouts of Today Not Your Grandmas VHS Tapes
In home fitness has come a long way from the days of Richard Simmons and Jane Fonda. At one time home fitness videos were thought of as a cheesy way to get fit. Nowadays the home workout world has evolved into seriously intense programs used by average ordinary people to Hollywood celebs, famous musicians, and even pro athletes.
Since this is the case now it only makes sense that a well recognized and reputable company like Les Mills would want to expand their business to the in home exercise market. The most reliable company to help do that would be Beach body and voila their partnership is born.
