NZ Glen : BodyCombat fanatic

Posts Tagged ‘BODYCOMBAT 42

One of the great things about living outside of Auckland is when I do make a trip up it’s always a bit of a special event and I always try to pack in as much as possible. I did live in Auckland for about 10 years before leaving around 2 years ago – and now I’ve left and look back I can say one thing; it’s definitely a fun place to visit! (whether I’d actually want to live there again is a whole other story!)

So myself and the better half (she’s also an instructor) decided to head up and make a bit of a weekend of it. Apart from eating out at way too many restaurants and drinking far too much we did manage to attend a few classes – including Dan and Rach’s BODYCOMBAT class and Lisa Osbourne’s BODYATTACK class (actually Rach taught the class alone as Dan wasn’t there – she did mention something about him getting bitten but hopefully she was joking!). The FANTASTIC thing about attending those classes around now (now meaning a few weeks out from the filmings) is that you get to see all the new stuff in advance. So yes, I’ve now sampled BODYCOMBAT 42 and BODYATTACK 67 (how jealous are you?!) These are actually prereleases as they haven’t even been filmed yet!

So, what can I tell you about them? Well, unfortunately nothing… sorry guys! Out of respect for the programme directors I’m going to keep all their details under wraps (hey bit of a BODYCOMBAT pun there hehe). Truth is that was seriously like my 5th ever BODYATTACK class so even if I wanted to tell you what was new about it I couldn’t! I will say the music ROCKED! Lisa team taught the class with Mid Thomas and a very fit looking guy (I think he was from Aussie – sorry I missed his name) – but perhaps the three of them will be presenting on the DVD. It was kinda funny at one point as I think Lisa was trying out a new move – and then a few reps into it she said “nah that’s just stupid let’s do this instead!” and completely changed it… one of the perks of being a PD huh?!

As for BODYCOMBAT 42? Well I will say a couple things (these are just personal opinion) – I loved tracks 1-4. There’s a completely new move in there which definitely took a bit of getting used to. The music for these tracks was awesome. We see a return to a format of track 5 that we haven’t seen for a few releases… and the muay thai is a fricken marathon! There, how’s that for really telling you very little!

In all seriousness both these releases look to be a tonne of fun (actually there are some similarities between the two too) – and in reality a lot could change before the filming itself which is still a few weeks away. I guess if you do wanna know more – be sure to come along on July 30th to see them both! If you are coming I’ll definitely see you there!

Hey guys, here’s the filming dates for the Q4 2009 releases (Q3 were filmed last month at the GFX). As per these will be filmed in Studio 1 at Les Mills Auckland (exception is RPM of course which will be in the RPM studio… funny that! 😉 ) If any of you are planning on coming do let me know as I’ll be there with bells on!

Thursday July 30th 2009

  • BODYPUMP 72
  • BODYATTACK 67
  • BODYCOMBAT 42
  • BODYVIVE 13

I’ll let you know the exact times as soon as I have them – until then these dates could be subject to change (though it’s a fairly safe bet they won’t be)

If you’re really organised it also looks like the dates for Q1 2010 releases will be filmed on Thursday 29th October 2009 & Monday 2nd November 2009 – but again I’ll confirm that MUCH closer to the actual dates (good grief no one needs that much notice surely!! 😛 ) As for the July filmings – really hope to see you there!!!
