A TYPICAL CLASS

Your BODYCOMBAT™ instructor will lead you through a series of moves from a range of martial arts to 10 different music tracks.

1. WARMUP
This is where you will learn all the moves that will be used throughout the class and warm up your body and mind for the battle ahead.

2. COMBAT 1
Visualise your opponent and unleash into your first fight combination.

3. POWER 1
Enter an aerobic training zone with a focus on speed, power and endurance.

4. COMBAT 2
Fight for your life! Inject all your power and energy into every combination as you again challenge your imaginary opponent.

5. POWER 2
You’re halfway through the fight. Use punches only to drill the upper body for a second time.

6. COMBAT 3
Time to recover as we lower the intensity to prepare for the final phase.

7. MUAY THAI
Explode into a Muay Thai encounter, push yourself to a higher fitness level and leave your opponent for dust!

8. POWER 3
Go hard out and don’t look back until you complete this upper body power blast and seal the deal on your fitness objectives.

9. CONDITIONING
Take to the floor and cap off the workout with some strength training.

10. COOLDOWN
Payback time - stretch out and lengthen all those hard-worked muscles.

GETTING STARTED

BODYCOMBAT™ is addictive but don’t overdo it. For best results try and battle it out two or three times a week.

HOW FIT DO I NEED TO BE?
BODYCOMBAT™ is for everyone with moderate fitness levels and because the moves are simple you do not need to be especially well coordinated.

WILL BODYCOMBAT™ HELP ME IN SELF-DEFENCE?
BODYCOMBAT™ is a non-contact fitness program, not a self-defence course. However fitness is beneficial in any situation.

WHAT DO I NEED TO BRING?
Trainers and any kind of comfortable workout gear. You are going to sweat so bring a towel and a water bottle.
