Body Combat Classes @ Work

Today, I tried Body Combat for the first time at my company’s newly built Lifestyle Center. They have recently introduced Yoga, Latin Salsa and Body Combat classes. Me being a sucker for free lessons did not hesitate to sign up for a free Body Combat trial courtesy of the instructor.

I changed into my matching working out outfit in the office and was all pumped up and ready for the lesson. Since I do exercise regularly (yeah… rite), I though the class will also be breeze but I was more than wrong.

Well, as a quick intro as extracted from a website; BODYCOMBATâ„¢ is the empowering cardio workout where you are totally unleashed. This fiercely energetic program is inspired by martial arts and draws from a wide array of disciplines such as karate, boxing, taekwondo, tai chi and muay thai. Supported by driving music and powerful role model instructors, strike, punch, kick and kata your way through calories to superior cardio fitness.

Here is a video from Youtube on how it is like:

Gyms like Fitness First, True Fitness and Celebrity Fitness should have such classes but I am not sure. However, I do encourage that you find out more. I recommend Body Combat to those who would want an intense cardio workout.

Apologies for not having any pictures from that session as I did not see a point in bringing a camera to the gym.

Well, I need to bare with the sore muscles and aching back as reminders of my encounter with Body Combat. It will definitely not be my first and last Body Combat class as I actually sign up for it if my Latin Salsa class is bad.

That’s all for the moment and till next time, take care….
