David’s background is in Team GB. He invented HIIT STEP almost by accident, and this exciting class has developed and spread to clubs throughout the world.

Review of Les Mills Body Combat release 70 – GFOC Podcast Series 2 Episode 1

In this long overdue episode of Group Fitness Over Coffee, I review Les Mills Body Combat release 70.

So welcome to Group Fitness Over Coffee Series 2 Episode 1.

Rather than write a review this time round I thought I’d record my thoughts as a podcast. Have a listen and then let me know what you think.

Review of Les Mills Body Combat release 70 - GFOC Podcast Series 2 Episode 1

Les Mills Body Combat has changed a great deal over the last 2 years and release 70 saw even bigger changes to the format.

Is it a big thumbs up. Or big thumbs down?

Let’s talk about the new track 1C – the integrated core warm-up. Was the “hip escape move” too hard for people too early in the class?

Does all the floor work fit in a Body Combat class or are Les Mills making the experience too similar to other HIIT classes?

Have a listen to the show and let me know what you think?
