LesMills Bodystep

BODYSTEP is the energizing step workout that makes you feel liberated and alive. Using a height-adjustable step and simple movements on, over and around the step you get huge motivation from sing-a-long music and approachable instructors. Cardio blocks push fat burning systems into high gear followed by muscle conditioning tracks that shape and tone your body.

A Typical Class:

There are 12 music tracks in a BODYSTEP class, each with a specific exercise focus to create a full body workout.

1. Warm-up - Warm up your body with a series of simple aerobic moves.

2. Step Warm-up - Think of this track as ‘Step School’. It’s where you learn how to step correctly, as you continue to warm the body.
 
3. Step Orientation - In this track you will find the intensity gradually lifts as you increase your range of movement and add light propulsions.
 
4. Step Athletic - This is the first peak in the class. It’s time to lift the energy and your heart rate, break a sweat and climb higher with more athletic stepping exercises to improve cardio fitness.
 
5. Mixed Strength - Time to lower the step a level, ease back on the cardio and put bigger demands on the legs and glutes for lower body strength and toning.
 
6. Power Peak - Here you will power up and hit the second peak. We use intense stepping exercises and dynamic lateral movement to improve cardio and endurance fitness.
 
7. Step Recovery - This is where you will catch your breath with slower and more controlled stepping exercises to work on balance and stability. It’s also the time to focus on lower body toning and sculpting.
 
8. Party Step - Hit party mode, smile and have fun in this anything goes approach to stepping. Your instructor uses different themes and movement styles to create a party on a step.

9. Speed Step - A signature track for BODYSTEP. You’ll lower the step height, and move your feet faster for speed and agility training.
 
10. Peak - This is the third and final cardio peak where you have the option to really push it by raising the height of your step. This track is a physically challenging combination of dynamic propulsive exercises and strong lower moves. Give it all you’ve got and reap the rewards as you make it to the end.
 
11. Recovery/Pushups/Abdominals - Catch your breath and move to the floor for conditioning work for the upper body and abdominals.
 
12. Cool-down/Stretch - Stretch your muscles as you cool down. This completes the full body workout.
