Hi, as a customer (not an instructor) but who has loved bodypump for more than 5 years, this is without doubt the WORST release I have ever done.
With the exception of lunges, I was quite simply bored. Infact, I think lunges only felt so tough because I had no motivation before it.
The music is simply HORRENDOUS – sounds like music I used to play on my little electronic keyboard when I was 6 years old!
Where is the crashing motivation in the music?
How many times do we need to say:
1. Putting a crap beat behind a song doesn’t make it good (the no doubt track)
2. Having what is basically a love song as the warm up doesn’t work.
3. If Bon Jovi, then why not something like You Give Love A Bad Name, something with some clout behind it.
4. Remember the likes of Silence for lunges, Let Me Entertain You for biceps, Love Will Set You Free, again for lunges, Shakira for the abs track……BP is never going to hit these dizzy heights again because the music isn’t there, pressing you on with the relentless power beats. It needs to be relentless, not having a nice cozy and quiet start to each track.
Interestingly, we recently did tracks from BP 40-58 in the last few weeks. They are a million times harder, a million times better and the class were loving it and pumping…..and really breathing hard by the end of each track.
Whoever does these tracklistings, take note…..
IMO, Bodypump is most definately going in the wrong direction….We are supposed to be adults doing an adult workout, not a bunch of kids wanting to listen to some very horrendous attempts at making music……
Thanks for letting me fume.
