A Typical Class

Like all the Les Mills programmes, a new BODYJAM® class is produced every three months with new music and choreography. Each new class will be a different dance experience depending on what's current and hot. Think dance school. Loosen up and get ready to jam!
A typical class rolls like this

1

Your instructor will take you through a warm up with simple moves designed to work one body part at a time, from your shoulders, to your chest, to your hips.

2

You'll then move onto the rehearsal phase, where you will try some uncomplicated but ultra-fun dance combinations that follow the latest music and hottest dance trends. Each rehearsal phase is followed by a complete bust-out performance where you go crazy with the moves you've just learned. Following these you'll get to take a breather in the recovery phases.

3

The final groove down brings you to the end of the class, with plenty of stretching for your worked-out muscles.

Get Fit Together Research

In 2011 Dr Jinger Gottschall and Penn State University set out to prove that LES MILLSfitness programs work just as well as, if not better than, other exercise prescriptions. With the Get Fit Together research they did just that.

How often should you take a class?

BODYJAM® is for people of all levels of fitness, and we promise you'll get fitter doing this class regularly. Try two to three classes per week for ultimate dance cardio.

What you need to bring with you

To get the most enjoyment from BODYJAM® we recommend you wear loose, comfortable clothing for maximum movement. Check out the latest Reebok/Les Mills co-branded range, designed with each of our classes in mind.

For footwear, we suggest you wear shoes that allow for plenty of twisting and turning movement - normal running shoes aren't ideal for BODYJAM® so try cross-trainers for more support.

Apart from that bring a water bottle and towel - BODYJAM® will make you sweat!
