Les Mills fitness programs began in 1968, founded by a four-time Olympian, Les Mills Snr. He opened his first gym in Aukland, New Zealand and started cooking up innovative ways to motivate people to stay fit. He and his teammates soon came up with workouts driven by the sounds of modern music. Les Mills workouts are energetic, intense, and help to tone and get fit, fast. And they are an excellent way to tighten your body after weight loss.
Now decades later, Les Mills is an international group workout movement led by fitness leaders and intrustors, heralding the signature BODYPUMP workout formula, and others listed below. Which one of these will be your favorite to tighten your body after weight loss?
Les Mills BODYCOMBAT
Let’s start with my favorite Les Mills workout. Body Combat is a fiercely energetic mixed martial arts-inspired cardio workout that makes me feel like a fighter! I like to unleash this relentless attack on calories using constant movements through punches, kicks, elbows, and knees. My instructor said one-hour class provides more than 1000 squats and burns 737 calories! Unleash your inner warrior while you tone your entire body in Les Mills Body Combat.
Les Mills BODYATTACK
Body Attack is a newer high-energy fitness class from Les Mills provides moves that cater for beginners to total addicts. The workout combines athletic movements like running, lunging, and jumping with strength exercises such as push-ups and squats. Try the one-hour class and burn-up 675 calories!
Les Mills BODYJAM
If you’ve got rhythm then you’ll want to lose yourself in the Body Jam dance-inspired cardio workout. Each class combines the hottest new songs with the latest dance styles based on what’s trending in clubs. I’ve tried the class and learned I’ve got two left feet, at least when it comes to hip-hop. For those who can, grab a friend and dance away 530 calories!
Les Mills BODYPUMP
Body Pump is the original Les Mills resistance workout training that strengthens and tones your entire body through the use of barbells and weights. I’ve taken the class and it’s a good beginner workout, although there were one or two moves I could not do owing to my arm injury [Read My Arm Lift (brachioplasty) Complication Grew Serious]. That said, Les Mills claims Body Pump is scientifically proven to be the fastest way to lose body fat. You’ll do 800 reps in one class!
Les Mills CXWORX
Les Mills RPM
I’m not going to sugar-coat this: I hate cycling. But for those who enjoy stationary riding like you stole it, you can take on the indoor terrain with Les Mills RPM. With hills, flats, mountain peaks and time trials, you’ll tear-up 675 calories in just 45-minutes of interval riding. Reach for the athlete within and discover new heights as you release endorphins that’ll make you feel so good!
Tighten Your Body after Weight Loss
The bottom line is that, yes, you absolutely can exercise to tighten your body after weight loss. And Les Mills workouts are a really fun way to do that while you also burn calories and have fun! Whether you choose to go to the gym or use Les Mills instructional DVDs or OnDemand to workout at home, there is sure to be a Les Mills program that is right for you.
However terrific these exercises will tighten your body after weight loss, they won’t significantly tighten excess hanging skin. So if you’ve lost a massive amount of weight and have skin draping your body, then plastic surgery may be medically necessary. If so, the cost of your plastic surgery may be paid by your health insurance.
