All I can say is… Yowsers! I attended Body Pump class over lunch at 24-hr fitness and all I can say is, WOW! I laughed, I cried, and then I cried some more. What a tough class but clearly one that is gonna make me tough. I really want that cool curvy line between my triceps and biceps but that may take a lot of effort. Body Pump is all about strength and endurance and involves weight lifting in an aerobic setting. There’s a lot of equipment and it’s fast paced but I left there with my arms twitching. So much so that I couldn’t hold my iPhone in my right arm driving back to the office without it shaking.
I would recommend body pump but start with the philosophy of LESS IS MORE. This means start with lighter weights and work your way up. Pump it up and get fit in 2011!
