    Hi everyone :)

    I decided I needed some exercise motivation and know that I get very bored very quickly in the gym and kind of wander aimlessly between the machines before thinking I'll treat myself to a sauna!

    So I got a bit brave and signed up for a body combat class at my local gym (have never done any classes before), went to the first one yesterday and it was SO much fun! Yes I ache a bit today but have signed up for tomorrows.

    Does anyone else on here do it and are you finding that the fun & motivation continues?

    Moo xx

    I used to do it when my partner never worked away, I loved it.
    It's all about boxing and aerobic workouts. You use pads, partner up with people or use the punch bags! You will have so much fun. I wish I could go back and carry on those classes x

    As I said I would be at class every wk if I could! Unfortunately I can't as my partner works away. Someone in my class used to do 3 classes in a row it was that good x

    Hi, yes I do two body combat classes a week and have done for over a year, and still LOVE it! Best class ever. the great thing is that they change the class every 3 months so you never get bored. Best workout I have ever done. xxx

    i love combat and go every Tue!
    I have noticed the difference in my arms from the upper body work, and think its a great overall toner & fat burner!

    Not a fan of Body Combat myself, although it is hugely popular at my gym.

    I LOVE Body Pump though!

    The class is set for all fitness levels - you just pick your intensity level when doing it - its not the easiest exercise class in the world but nowhere near as hard as say Body Attack! There's a fair bit of shuffling and jacking and LOADS of punching and kicking. No beginner groups that I know of but your gym might do a 'body combat consultation' class beforehand.

    the class will either be 45 mins but it usually an hour.

    Hope this helps.

    I went into it never having done any type of class before - dont worry Grevo, you pick it up really quickly :D
    There are 2 classes a week at my local gym, looks like Ive signed up for both and hoping it'll make a huge difference to my SW too :)

    Esther - thats great as I was wondering if Id be able to maintain my enthusiasm so if you're still doing it after a year then that inspires me too!
