I’m still writing my reviews of the latest releases (I know I’m so slack!) – it’s taken way longer than I’d hoped but I have set myself a final deadline of this weekend (addition – it’s Tuesday and I still haven’t written this… good things take time?? Is anyone buying that excuse?? ;)).

In the meantime here’s a really quick post about a very hot topic right now; musical covers. As you’ve probably heard the fitness industry in Australia has been turned on its head by the Copyright Tribunal’s decision to increase PPCA music licensing fees about 1500% for gyms and fitness centres wishing to use original artists’ music in their group fitness classes. Les Mills has responded by stating they will move to PPCA free music (essentially using cover bands). The CEO of the PPCA responded by calling cover music “inferior” and “cheap”.

Well, I’ll let you decide. Below is one track (the original) and the second is a Les Mills cover from BODYATTACK 69. I’ve only used the first minute of each (under fair use)  as I don’t want to get in trouble for infringing any copyrights – but have a listen and you be the judge:

I mean seriously could you tell any major difference?? Hopefully LMI keep their covers to this kind of standard.

If you are from Aussie and you instruct how have your members met with the change? Or if you participate I’d love to know your thoughts on the matter. Meanwhile I’ll get writing!

Apologies for the lack of posting over the past few days guys – been flat out with local releases here for BODYCOMBAT 44, BODYPUMP 74 & BODYATTACK 69 (plus now being GFM makes it even busier). Every release has been jammed packed and totally gone off! I’ve taught BC44 in its entirety five times now (plus participated in workshop and filming classes of course) so I’m in a fairly decent enough position to review it – which will be my next post. All up BA69 and BP74 have been met with fantastic reception, reponse to BC44 to be honest has been mixed – in fact one of my regulars even asked me if we “have” to do this release for the full two weeks or if we could mix earlier – I’ve launched nine successive BODYCOMBAT releases now (since BC37) and that is absolutely the first time I’ve ever had that reaction. But more on that later!

In the interim a picture tells a thousand words so here’s so pics from our releases – note to coincide with BODYSTEP 80 we themed every release “80’s aerobics style” so if you’re wondering about the crazy outfits now you know! There’s TONNES more pics on facebook so if you haven’t already please add me… (warning these pics have pretty outrageous costumes – I based myself on Richard Simmons; looking back the 80’s were tragic!!)

Hey team, slowly getting myself sorted! Here’s BA69 – I’ve not linked to youtube for attack as the tracks tend to be customised specifically for the programme and bear little resemblance to the originals. Few double ups from other programmes; Dangerous, I Gotta Feeling and Jump That Rock – but again the attack versions tend to differ so much that it’s not usually an issue. Enjoy! 🙂

Following on from the BODYCOMBAT 44 and BODYPUMP 74 sizzlers below here’s BODYATTACK 69 (thanks Kacie!!) Others to follow soon…

BODYATTACK 69 sizzler

BODYATTACK is coming at you from all three dimensions in this release – Aerobics, Sport and Strength.

There’s huge aerobic highs with Boys and Girls, Great passion and energy in Dangerous, and a hard-core high-energy finish with Jump That Rock to push everybody’s limits!

Take to the Sports track in Dream a Dream where you’ll find power and recovery phases to challenge every fitness level. Then in track 5 – Sunshine After the Rain– practice quick takeoffs and short bursts of sprints to mix up the running feels. Check out the awesome speed and agility training drills in track 7.

Still got something left in the tank? We’ve got challenging upper body moves with a cool twist, and triceps and chest all get pushed to their limit! How about the power pulse lunge back in track 10 – if you’re looking for serious strength and power, you’ve certainly found it! Your abs will burn through the final Tik Tok on the clock in track 11.

Hi guys, happy new year!
