It’s that time again! Home based workouts are a great way to shed the weight OR just a great addition to a gym routine. Now, I must give you a little disclaimer here: I am a certified Les Mills Instructor, but I promise I am not biased!
Today’s review: Les Mills Body Combat
Let’s jump right in to the meat and potatoes of it…..THIS DVD has become one of my absolute favorites for in-home training. Now, I have a boxing gym in my garage, so when I feel like a good strike I head out there; however, COMBAT gives me the cardio and strength conditioning of a true fighter along with hot music and some of the most entertaining instructors around.
One of the major complaints about workout DVDs is the instruction and repetitiveness of the personalities. Les Mills Combat is led by Dan and Rach, along with some other instructors who team up to bring you the variety you feel like you’re missing in other DVDs. Instructor personality is key to the Les Mills formula and believe me, they only take the BEST. With a variety of personalities, styles and let’s face it…sexy accents You’re sure to stay motivated throughout your entire 60+ day transformation. They promise you a different body in 60 days, and this is one program I totally believe does the trick.
Combat utilizes interval training in every workout. Intervals happen when your heart rate is jacked up then brought down a notch, only to be taken up again. This is a proven way to burn MORE fat and calories than with traditional training. Want to take a look at what you could be in for? Check it out HERE!
The best thing about COMBAT is that it mixes martial arts. Now, you know I LOVE some MMA, so this is right up my alley! Instead of simply kickboxing or boxing, you get to taste a bit of all the martial arts, including some moving katas to teach you how to control your body. COMBAT also provides detailed training sessions so you can learn how to effectively punch and kick. This enables you to expedite results and avoid injury.
There are several packages you can choose from when looking at the COMBAT DVDs. The most basic is a good place to start and is listed right here:
Unleash your inner warrior with 7 body-shredding workouts that harness the explosive techniques of mixed martial arts with the hard-hitting cardio of high intensity interval training.
Plus, you’ll get these practical tools to maximize your results: Stay With the Fight Fitness Guide, Eat Right for the Fight Nutrition Guide, LES MILLS COMBAT 30:LIVE! BONUS WORKOUT, Measurement Tracker Card, Tape Measure, and Online Support.
This package has everything you need to get started strong. If you feel the need to progress, just look into the additional packages.
Always remember that fuel is important and one of the best ways to fuel before or after your booty kicking COMBAT workout is HERE.
Check out COMBAT for a great total body workout, OR as a superb cardio addition to your muscle-building routine. Want great shoulders? I know the secret!
See you next time, and remember to LIVE OUT LOUD!
