This month, Les Mills announced the arrival of BODYCOMBAT™ reinvented – a re-imagined, re-worked and re-released program that has been part of the Les Mills family since 1999. Undefeated for 20 years, BODYCOMBAT™ has constantly reinvented itself with science in its corner and to this day, remains the world’s top martial arts-inspired training program. After 81 releases,

BODYCOMBAT’s™ latest re-launch fulfills both martial arts and cardio genres, offering a full body workout with low impact moves that also provides incredible core conditioning suiting everyone from beginners to advanced.
The new program not only works your legs, tones your arms, back and shoulders and provides phenomenal core training, it also destroys calories, develops coordination, agility and speed, and leaves all who take part feeling empowered as they punch and kick their way to fitness.
The latest verison of BODYCOMBAT™ features a scientifically-backed combo of empowering and effective martial arts moves. Centered around instructors that motivate and amazing music, the workout is also based on the science of Cardio Peak Training, which involves maintaining your heart rate at an aerobic training base (between 60 and 80 percent of your maximum heart rate) with interspersed peaks of intensity (pushing you to 85 to 90 per cent of your max). This specific blend of steady-state and high-intensity builds cardio endurance, and also drives the transformative fat-burning effects associated with high-intensity interval training.
⦁ You can expect to burn around 740 calories* during a 55-minute BODYCOMBAT™ workout. You’ll also build cardio fitness, tone and shape the arms, back and shoulders, train your legs and condition your core.
⦁ BODYCOMBAT™ features moves from Karate, Taekwondo, Boxing, Muay Thai, Capoeira and Kung Fu. But don’t fret, you don’t need any martial arts experience – during the warm up you’ll be coached through all the different movements. You can expect to power through invigorating sets of hooks, jabs and uppercuts, and there are plenty of kicks and high knees too. You’ll also benefit from functional training moves such as lunges, squats and push ups.
⦁ Every minute around the world over 100 people are participating in a BODYCOMBAT™ class!
⦁ In BODYCOMBAT™ there are options to suit every ability and your instructor will coach you through all the moves.
⦁ For awesome results the team at Les Mills recommend you do BODYCOMBAT™ two to three times a week.
