A Typical Class
BODYVIVE® lets you choose just how hard you work. It's ideal for those new to Group Fitness, those returning to exercise or rehabilitating after an injury, pre and postnatal mothers, and active adults who want the benefits of improved cardio fitness, strength and flexibility.
A typical class flows like this:
|The opening section uses the VIVE™ ball to help you work on mobility, flexibility, cardio and agility. We also incorporate some easy dance moves to keep the fun levels up, team you up for a walk track then ease down into some relaxing Tai Chi and yoga.|
|The next focus is functional strength. The VIVE™ tube helps you to work on different sets of muscles. You'll also improve your posture and leg strength with some balancing exercises.|
|Next you will work your abs with Pilates-based moves and the VIVE™ ball, then get down on the floor to work on your back strength. Then it's time to unwind with some long, slow stretches to take you to the end of the class.|
Like all the LES MILLS® programmes, a new BODYVIVE® class is released every three months with new music and choreography.
What equipment is used
VIVE™ balls and VIVE™ tubes are used in some of the tracks, because of their ability to exercise the body in different ways. These are popular forms of equipment and will let you get a wide range of workout intensity, no matter your level of fitness.
Take a look
How often should you take a class?
To really keep your energy levels high, we suggest you try BODYVIVE™ up to two times a week, in conjunction with other physical activities of your choice.
Level of fitness
You don't need to be fit to do BODYVIVE®, just physically active and able to move freely. You'll find your strength and agility improves over a number of sessions. BODYVIVE® works for you - it all depends on how hard you push yourself.
What you need to bring with you
You won't need any special clothes, just wear whatever is comfortable for you to move easily, and we recommend wearing sports shoes that give you good stability.
Apart from that bring a drink bottle and a towel!
