So this past week I had the pleasure of visiting another class of one of my favorite instructors. Carrie Dent is her name and on this occasion I visited Lifestyle Family Fitness and participated in Carrie's BODY COMBAT class. Now Body Combat is another Les Mills class. All that means is it is a choreographed workout set to music. If you did not take the time to watch the video I will tell you like I said in the video - THIS would be my favorite class if I were regularly taking classes. WHY you might ask? Because first it is some serious calorie burning with all the fast punching and kicking going on - AND I love that stuff. I LOVE the punching and kicking and jumping in the kicks and ENERGY in the class. GREAT music, great energy, hanging with others liking it too and well what more could you ask for.
Carrie is a well rounded intructor who has been in fitness a VERY long time and well she is pretty much certified to do everything. Check out her accomplishments below:
- President - Forever Strong Fitness personal and small group training
- Pilates mat
- Body Pump
- Body Combat
- Cycle certified
If your a local and are interested in trying one of Carrie's classes she can be reached through her website listed above. Make sure to check out one of her classes or maybe do some individual or group training classes with her:)
One of the reasons I am a BIG proponent of group classes is because I have personally had such great experiences myself with them. After diligently getting my cardio in on the treadmill, bike, elliptical or some other cardio machine it has been very refreshing to go to a group class and participate with others in that kind of setting and BURN some serious calories. I mean when was the last time you got on the treadmill and stayed on for 55 min and burned 7oo+ calories?
If you are a social person and can't stand getting on cardio machines then maybe, just maybe a cardio fitness class is for you. If you have the chance check out my review page here as I have reviewed a few different cardio classes available. I am sure there is something for YOU in there. SO get out there and try something new and who knows you might find a class that you love. Make some new friends and lose some bodyfat HAVING FUN! YAY 🙂
