  • What is the difference between LES MILLS STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT and BODYPUMP?

Both workouts are based on science-backed strength training theories. BODYPUMP focuses on high repetitions with lighter weights. The format and moves are set to work to the beat of the music.

LES MILLS STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT is progressive strength training, meaning each workout focuses on a specific training protocol for building strength over the 12 workouts. This ranges from Foundational Strength, to Hypertrophy, to Pure Strength, while the structure and feel is very different to BODYPUMP. The music is there to provide great workout tracks without moving to the beat. Instead, LES MILLS STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT uses Time Under Tension, as well as rep-ranges depending on the prescribed protocol of the workout.

  • What are the benefits of buying the LES MILLS STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT full set?

By designing safe and science-backed strength workouts that are bang-on-trend, we’ve taken the guess work out of programming, coaching and music. LES MILLS STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT is researched and trialed to deliver strength gains, while building confidence and knowledge of how to lift weights.

The pre-programming of the 12-workout full set ensures a consistent experience for participants and makes it easy to follow. A certified LES MILLS STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT Coach has the time and skills to focus on the individuals needs of the participants, instead of focusing on making up a workout

  • What is the planned lifespan of LES MILLS STRENGTH DEVELOPMENT?

A minimum of two years and once we test with customers, this feedback will help shape what this will look like for other Gen-Fit Training workouts.
