BODYCOMBAT 41 – trials underway…
Posted April 21, 2009on:
Last week Dan and Rach started trialling BODYCOMBAT 41 in their Wednesday class at Les Mills Auckland for the filming next weekend. Although I wasn’t there, I’ve had a couple of reports as to what happened so I’ll tentatively let the cat out of the bag early… couple of points however. a) as I said I wasn’t in attendance so can’t formally confirm the below, and b) these may change dramatically before the actual filming itself. It’s not unheard of for tracks or chorey to change on the day of the filming – or even during the filming (as happened with the chorey in BC40). So, take the below with a grain of the proverbial salt… 😉
So, at last week’s trial Kelly Clarkson featured in the warm up (track 1b) – My Life Would Suck Without You (yes I did say Kelly Clarkson – don’t worry it gets even more interesting!). A remix of Numa Numa was track 1a (that’ll be sure to raise a few eyebrows…) The trial also featured (wait for it) remixes of Enter Sandman by Metallica, Let Me Entertain You by Robbie Williams and Faith Hill’s Breathe – and no that’s not the cooldown! (yes, interesting choice is what I was thinking too!) Track 8 was Cascada’s What Do You Want From Me (personally I loved What Hurts The Most so more Cascada is all good in my eyes). Right Round by Flo Rider was the conditioning and Halo by Beyonce was the cooldown. But again this all could and probably will change!
Originally I was going to link to the tracks on youtube but as I don’t know the specific remixes it would serve to be a little pointless. Rumour has it that many of these tracks were covers – which I have a theory on (I think if true it may have to do with the proposed massive increases in licensing fees fitness centres would have to pay for music rights – see www.taxonfitness.com for more info). But, again that’s only my personal theory – I’ve been wrong before! (only once or twice 😉 )
As for the chorey well you’ll have to sit tight for about two weeks until after the actual filming… however I’ll post updates as soon as I can. My plan originally was to try to “tweet” directly from Les Mills in real time – be interesting to see if that works as I’m very new to the whole Twitter phenomenon! (if you are on Twitter just follow me at www.twitter.com/nzglen for updates). That’s it for now – as always your thoughts are welcome!
