There are a myriad of different training styles out there, and they all offer different benefits. While some workouts will burn maximum calories in a short space of time, others build strength and lean muscle which enables you to sustainably burn calories for longer periods. Some workouts are simply designed to be fun – so you burn calories without even noticing.
During a BODYPUMP™ workout you’ll raise your heart rate and increase calorie burn, but more importantly you’ll strengthen, shape and tone your entire body. While people can burn up to 560 calories* during a 55-minute BODYPUMP workout, it’s the building of lean muscle mass that provides the long-term benefits. By building lean muscle mass you increase your body’s ability to effectively burn calories in the long term as the extra muscle will raise your metabolism.
BODYCOMBAT™ is a great way to build cardio fitness and burn calories while you shape and tone your entire body. People can burn up to 740 calories* during a 55-minute BODYCOMBAT workout. It provides an amazing core workout and will also tone your legs, arms, back and shoulders.
