Taking music from around the globe with tunes that cover every genre, the world’s leading instructors (and hottest dancers) have jammed together to come up with the ultimate dance-based workout, guaranteeing an uplifting and memorable experience every time.
Lasting 45 minutes to 1 hour, each BODYJAM ® class is a melting pot of movement, an irresistible mix of Latin, Funk, Groove, Caribbean, Jazz, Techno, Hip-Hop, Disco and Broadway-Jazz style moves.
Starting with a gentle introduction, track one – the warm-up – creates the party atmosphere in the studio environment and is designed to raise the body temperature, increase the ease of movement and get the party started. Track two takes you to a groove/funk state of mind, gradually increasing the heart rate and range of movements. Hips are definitely the emphasis of track three, as you get down and dirty to the rhythmic movements of some Salsa/Latin dance. Track four takes you to “Jenny’s block” as you are transported to the Bronx, walkin’ low, hangin’ tuff, attitude is a must for this hip-hop track. By track five heart rates are up and bodies are limber ready to be taken to the first peak in a cardio jam track. Whatever the feel of this track, you are guaranteed to start pushing your cardio fitness level. From this peak, track six pulls the mood back as you walk-the-walk in a funk/hip-hop recovery. Gyrate and groove with track sexy seven – Latin is back. Track eight – the grand finale – takes BODYJAM ® to the final peak. Disco is in da house – the last chance for participants to push their own limit to hit their own peak. It goes off with a bang. Track nine and party over, time to groove down, something slow, something funky, something to remember.
Each track has its own feel and style, captured perfectly in the movements. BODYJAM ® delivers what everyone wants from a challenging group fitness class – inspiration to achieve results. The simple, pre-choreographed nature of the programme makes it easy for all enthusiasts to improve coordination and achieve fitness goals. Each track builds in intensity and complexity by layering changes in moves throughout the workout. By the end of each track, you will be breaking a sweat, working hard and having fun. Every combination starts simple and progresses, showing you how to add those funky moves and arm-lines with ease, making you look like a master of the dance floor while still working out. Under the supervision of the instructor – the party host – the synergy of group fitness compels participants to achieve a volume of work that would be difficult to replicate on an individual basis. It is the host’s job to encourage everyone to feel the music and express themselves in ways they always wanted to but didn’t know how!
