    I used to do one and quite enjoyed it. I found the first couple really hard work, but could feel my fitness improving each week I went so would recommend!

    I do body pump & last week I started a body combat class too - where I go body combat is done as the class before body pump so I am going to one after the other - I certainly feel tighter but I have to say that after my first body pump class my legs hurt so much the next day that sitting on the loo was such an effort!!

    I go to body pump too, like Julie had trouble with the loo after it lol until the Fri! (my class is a mon night)

    You definitely get used to it though, i know Ive been doing something the next day but able to go about day to day life fine, whereas after 1st week felt like i had been hit by a bus lol

    Mine is always a bit different every week as well which I like

    From my class description on timetable "a non impact class which strengthens, conditions and tones the body using barbells and dumbells"

    You do different exercises with handweights/bars. She will also get us to use a step or exercise ball and sometimes a band.

    There is a lot of looks fly about my class as in is she serious! Though they are all skinny minnys that go except me so I figure it must work

    I started going in the new year and love it. I always have to use the lightest weights at the moment though, but my OH says he thinks I'm looking more toned. (I can't see it - but then, I never can!)
