Hi guys, sorry for the delay on this – I’m not allowed to release tracklists until workshops start (which is today!) so here it is! (the only exception I ever make is if another website publishes the tracklist first – then as it’s ‘out there’ I will do the same – but BC50 has been nicely kept under wraps this quarter!)

So here we go! Bit of a celebration mix as you’ll see with three tracks being brought back from earlier releases (Nessaja which was the bonus track from BC16, plus Frozen and Eye of the Tiger from BC2!) and, love ’em or not the return of sound effects! For my first impressions on the release itself see my BODYCOMBAT 50 Filming post. As always where an LM cover has been used I’ve tried my best to link to an original (the mix for Frozen is faster than the one linked as an example). Enjoy!

BODYCOMBAT 50

Join us to celebrate a half-century of BODYCOMBAT with Release 50 – only this isn’t a party… it’s an insane workout that will see you punch and kick calories out the door! As usual, this release delivers hardcore results that leave you wanting More – so gear up and get going!

After warming up your upper and lower body, you’ll move into your first Combat track which features a dynamic Sword KATA sequence that will work your core with every single strike you make.

Watch out for Track 4 and a new side kick inspired by Tae Kwon Do. It’s designed to generate the most power possible from a side kick and to cover more ground; so unleash yourself and go the distance!

Inspired by Capoeira, Track 6 will work your legs to the max, testing your muscular endurance. Your legs are going to love you for all the conditioning work they get in this track. If you go hard, the results will come your way.

Track 7 sees the return of the most memorable BODYCOMBAT song of all time, Eye Of The Tiger. It’s been remastered for Release 50 and is combined with Top 40 songs to make an awesome musical line-up that will motivate you to push through the pain.

Prepare yourself for an 8-minute shoulder-endurance nightmare in Track 8; it’s a full-on punch fest which will see you reach your cardio limit, and then redefine it.

The theme of this release is ‘Reignite the Fire’ and you sure will have burned an insane amount of calories by the time it’s over, with moves that are carefully crafted to shred body fat and deliver hardcore results.

BODYPUMP 80

This round we mark 20 years of BODYPUMP with Release 80 – what a milestone! So to celebrate, we brought the programme back to where it all began: Aotearoa, with an all-New Zealand presenting team and a whole lot of innovation to celebrate the past two decades and welcome in the next!

This release is a great mix of high-intensity aerobic training to get you fit and burn calories; isolated strength training to tone and shape your muscles; and circuit training to push your body to the limit. Time to load up your bar and get working!

You’ll enjoy short bursts of high-intensity training in Tracks 2, 4 and 7 which will lift your heart rate, increase your fitness and burn calories. You’ll be on The Edge Of Glory in no time.

To complement the high-intensity work, there’s pure strength training tracks spread throughout the release to ensure you get a balanced workout. In Tracks 3, 6 and 9 we isolate a particular muscle group – chest (Track 3), biceps (Track 6) and core (Track 9) – to build pressure in the muscle, work it to fatigue and create change.

We’ve got a BODYPUMP first in Track 7: the Propulsion Lunge. It’s a hugely effective power training move where you leap into the air. You may not love these at the time, but you’ll love the results they help you achieve!

Tracks 5 and 8 are circuit-style tracks where you let rip for short bursts of intensity before enjoying a quick recovery. This is where change happens when you push yourself to the limit. Track 8 also sees the debut the Rotator Overhead Press; it’s a total shoulder-conditioning move that will really get your Hands Up! and your shoulders toned.

BODYPUMP 80 is a great release – trust us on this one; you don’t make it through 20 years without learning a thing or two!

BODYBALANCE 55

Welcome to BODYBALANCE 55; we’re delighted you could join us for this release.

Smooth is the name of the game in Track 1, as you focus on warming through the upper body with graceful, encompassing movements.

Track 2 sees you complete Sun Salutations to a funky, beat-driven song which helps wake up and energize your whole body.

There’s a dramatic turn ahead in Track 4, where the drama of the song I’m No Angel is matched by the choreography of the poses.

Let your body fill with Love, Love, Love in Track 5 as you enjoy the sheer beauty of the song you are exercising to. Allow your body and mind to be overwhelmed with the feeling of happiness that this special song generates.

Tracks 6 and 7 offer a complete core workout which really pack a punch. The combinations of moves in these two tracks are so effective, they have the power to change your functional strength in a positive way.

Track 8 is your final opportunity for one last challenging pose, the Standing Balance Twist. There are modification options available to modify this move if you wish to gradually build into this demanding pose.

Surrender to the beautiful song Scarlet, written by Kiwi singer-songwriter Brooke Fraser, in Track 9a, allowing it to take you to a place of absolute stillness.

Before you know it, it’s time for the class to dissolve away into the relaxation and meditation phase, guguiding you to a place of calm before re-entering the world again, filled with Pure Light.

BODYSTEP 86

Get Ready 2 Go with BODYSTEP 86, starting with a solid Warm-up that will get your body prepared for the roller coaster it will be on during this release. It’s an intensely athletic release that will give great results but, in true BODYSTEP™ style, we’ve kept the moves and the music fun, so you keep on smiling from start to finish.

Just when you think Step Athletic Track 4 has reached its Determinate end, we’ve thrown in a surprise Half Burpee! The return of this high-intensity move will spike your heart rate and get everyone ready for the massive Shuffle combos of Track 5. It’s full-on Party Rock Anthem time in this Mixed Strength track as we let your legs breathe and send your heart rate into space. This is a deceptively fun track that will trick you into forgetting how much you’re actually moving!

The surprises keep coming in Track 6 with the introduction of the Propulsive Lunge that sees you and your heart rate Rise Up just when you think you’re slowing down. This move will really push you in the last 30 seconds and your heart rate will peak, but recovery follows – so go hard and get results!

Party Step Track 8 will make you feel as though you Run The World with the debut of the Running Girl move; it’s similar to the Running Man but it’s more Skater-like, a touch classy and equally as cool.

We’ve brought back the weight option in Track 10, with moves to work the legs and again get your heart pumping. Use a 5 (11 lbs) or 10kg (22 lbs) plate for this track; they’re not Poison – they help you reach a training spike!

Because you loved the new Athletic track debuted in Release 85, we’ve included the option again; you can use it in place of Tracks 8 and 9 to give the class another dose of high-intensity interval training. The concept’s the same with this Athletic track: 45 seconds of intense work, then 30 seconds of rest. Rinse and repeat six times. Good luck!

BODYATTACK 75

It’s time to Give Me Everything with BODYATTACK 75! This release is driven by music that’s high-energy, fun and inspiring – just like BODYATTACK!

Track 2 sees the debut of a new move, the Running Man. This is a first for BODYATTACK and it will leave you with a big smile on your face while your body finishes warming up, getting you ready for the high-intensity moves that are about to hit!

You’ll be Freakin’ Perfect in Track 3 as you let your heart rate peak with a BODYATTACK favourite, the Superman! Couple this move with some Jumping Jacks and your body won’t know where to send the blood – to your arms or your legs!

It’s time for intense Lunges now, and your opportunity to change the shape of your legs. There are options if you need to take things down a notch – we want everyone to do whatever it takes to make it to the end of the class, that’s all! Fitness is something you earn.

The Walking Burpee makes a return this release, this time joined by Bottom Half Push-ups to make one killer combo to condition your whole body as you complete this strength training sequence. We can promise that you will Sweat through this whole track, just like the song says!

If you love baseball, you’ll love Track 7. This track is sports agility training at its most intense and whether you’re a baseball novice or not, you’ll be running to bases, picking up balls and throwing them like you’re a professional in no time.

There will be no Fading Like A Flower in Track 8 as you experience a final boost of high-intensity interval training that will help you increase your fitness dramatically. Sprint as fast as you can at the end of the track – the energy of the group will help motivate you, as will the fact that you’re on the stretch to home base and the awesome conditioning tracks that await you. You’ll be on The Edge Of Glory before you know it!

RPM 53

Think of RPM 53 like this: 45 minutes of riding time where we have 10 minutes to get warm in Tracks 1 and 2; 5 minutes at the end to cool down; this leaves us with about 30 minutes to work hard and push ourselves to the limit.

Make the most of your 30 minutes of work by keeping the riding and workout intensity high through focusing not only on the work phases but also on the recoveries. Effective recovery is key if you want to build fitness and increase your endurance.

Track 4 is Mixed Terrain with a difference. In this track we are riding the flats at the same paces as the climbs until we hit the sprints. You ride in the saddle at 80rpm to flush your legs, before adding enough resistance to counterbalance your body weight so you can stand and climb, maintaining the same pace throughout. Then reduce to Working Resistance, ride hard and sprint. Don’t worry, all the work will pay off: you’ll feel like Kings And Queens by the end of it!

Treat each interval in Track 5 like it’s your last! During each of the five intervals, flick the switch, and power ahead knowing there’s a recovery phase right around the corner. If you use your recoveries, you’ll work much harder than you think you can in the attack phases, and get the results to match.

There’s a real contrast in this release between emotive and fun tracks. The mix of the two enhances the ride, creating a real journey. Don’t think about it too much, just ride it and feel it.

BODYJAM 59

Wanna Battle In The Bronx? Put on your baddest gears for this Hip Hop-inspired release that features a classic gangsta feel AND the latest chart-toppers. Old school is the new new school, right?

Drop It Low into Track 2 with some silky-smooth Salsa. Focus first on the hips, then get your chest poppin’. Then get ready for straight Hip Hop with Get It flowing effortlessly into Countdown, the hottest sasstastic diva banga of the year. But don’t let it fool you; it’s about to get mental. The club anthem Happiness will have you sweatin’, then how loud can you yell “WHO RUN THIS MUTHA!”?

Drop your Bass Down Low to lower the heart rate – then it’s the genre-defying “Till Death Do We Party” House block. The most colossal remix of Judas, followed by Metrum, a melting pot of House, Afro, percussion, Electro, progressive – basically you cannot categorize this track into a box. It’s here that we challenge expectations of just what can be achieved in a fitness studio.

And just when you think things couldn’t get any more awesome, BAM! Champagne Showers will throw your class into a breakout energy like never before. The most intense cardio, the most amazing music, the most euphoric BODYJAM yet.

Key to this release is making sure you Set Up, Follow Up, then Shut Up! This is a new coaching style that lets your class feel the music and move with it – minimal interruptions required! Because you’re not talking, you can give the movement everything – 110%. It’s so much more inspirational to watch a great dancer than to talk about great dancing… Give it a go and watch G explain everything in the Ed session.

BODYJAM 59 is defying genres with a Hip Hop flava so you get the best dance workout on the planet – prepare yourself to tear the room up and Battle In The Bronx.

BODYVIVE 21

BODYVIVE 21 is a fun, fresh release with loads of variety!

Let Me Take You Away with a great warmup that will get you ready for the intense cardio blocks that are just around the corner. Track 2 uses the VIVE™ ball as a resistance tool for your upper body, helping you tone and tighten as you build stamina and endurance.

The cardio moves in Track 4 will improve your agility before we up the intensity with interval training in Track 5. You’ll want to Ring The Alarm as this track will push you to your cardio limit, but have the confidence to go hard because active recovery follows! Pay special attention to this track as the song was personally approved for use by the artists who wrote it!

All you Boys And Girls will need to get your VIVE™ tubes out for integrated strength in Track 8, and we’ll also put the VIVE™ tube to work to improve functional strength during the hip moves in Track 9.

Next, we put your core to the test. First up is back strength: you’ll use the VIVE™ ball to train your postural muscles, along with everyone’s favorite – Push-ups. Then it’s your abs’ turn: you’ll feel Like Water during this track but push through; it’s almost time to stretch it all out in Track 12 when you can relax, knowing you’ve just completed a low-impact, high-intensity workout that will get you in great shape all over!

Well these have hit the net already! Apologies for the low res I’ll update them as soon as I can find better quality ones. I might be biased (yes that is yours truly in the BODYCOMBAT poster – and my arm in the Attack haha) but I really like them! Look forward to your thoughts!










BC50 gift bags given out after class

Well guys the big half century for the world’s number one martial arts based fitness program has officially been filmed, locked and loaded. BODYCOMBAT 50 is complete! And, as you would expect it was a MASSIVE night.

As per usual, I have to do my short disclaimer. I will endeavour to give you a feel for the release, and my first impressions of it – but I cannot reveal any specific music or choreography until instructor workshops begin. But I will do my best to tell you as much as I can without letting the proverbial cat out of the bag.

BODYCOMBAT 50 had a literal ‘A Team’ of presenters from around the globe. D&R, Andres Vesga (originally from Colombia last seen on BC47), Shaunna May (from the USA last on BC46) and Judy King (now training out of South East Asia last on BC43). The team were dressed in black and white LMI shorts and celebratory BC50 black tops. As per usual they all looked lean, tanned and amazing!

By the time the actual class kicked off it was approaching 10pm so as you’d expect the class wasn’t quite as packed as some previous filmings, yet it was still busy especially given how late it was. However, it seemed that well over half the people that were in the room were fighting for the front row – the front section were just jammed in like venum sponsored sardines! In fact both Dan and Rach told them on separate occasions that they would have to move back, and give each other some room. I’m not too sure the words of advice were heeded however.

If you’ve read my last two filming posts you’ll see I fell in love with both BODYCOMBAT 48 and BODYCOMBAT 49 immediately as soon as I did them for the first time. Some releases you do instantly love, and some can take time to grow on you; I think BC50 falls into the latter category.

Now if you’ve seen the sizzler for BC49 (or done the release itself) you’ll know that the intensity of the workout starts straight from the first track. In fact the first time I did BC49 I was puffing mid way through the lower body warmup! I recall very clearly a friend of mine turning to me during a BC49 rehearsal class and saying “OMFG is this still the warmup?!” – it’s a big track! Well 50 is similar – the lower body warmup felt long and had loads of kicks. I know the upper body track has been in pump before, and the lower body track is a well known artist breaking all sorts of album sales at the moment *hint hint*!

Hopefully I can say this (I’m sure LM will tell me quick smart if I can’t); sound effects are back! Is this part of a celebration of combat’s heritage perhaps? They are very noticeable in track 2, and the muay thai – and I think track 4 as well from memory. Definite “bish” moves on kicks and upper body movements. But don’t fret if you’re not a fan… we’ve not gone back to the days of BC15 with bells and gongs!

There’s a couple of new moves in 50. A new kick in track 4 (this is the kick Dan warned everyone they’d need some room for), and a new adaption of a move in the muay thai. Both are pretty cool. And be prepared as track 6 is 6 solid minutes of pure pain. This track makes Stamp or Spitfire seem like a stroll in a park by comparison; YOUCH!

But, the highlight of the release for me? Third release running, yes you guessed it; TRACK FIVE! Man the days of me absolutely cringing at track 5s has well and truly gone. Track 5 in BC48 was awesome, track 5 in BC49 is EVEN BETTER and track 5 in BC50 is definitely the peak of the release. In fact every single instructor I spoke to felt the same way. It. Goes. Off. Freakishly all three of those tracks (48-5, 49-5 and 50-5) have all been in previous BC releases! How crazy is that! However, much like the version of No Good (aka Don’t Need) that is in 49, the version of the track in 50 that was in an earlier release bears little resemblance to its predecessor.

I mentioned this release may be a grower because if I’m completely truthful the first time I tried it I wasn’t “blown away”. But, the second time at the actual filming I enjoyed it a lot more which is brilliant. Yes there’s a move in track 2 that feels a little silly, yes track 3 didn’t quite peak like they usually do, and yes the cooldown cover is pretty awful if I’m being honest… but track 5 and 8 absolutely go off and that more than makes up for it! Track 8 is another uber-marathon 8+ minuter, and you’ll be riding an endorphin wave the entire way.

Happy Birthday BC!

Overall BODYCOMBAT 50 is a solid release. There’s innovation in new moves, with a couple of the tracks having been in early combat releases plus the sound effects BC50 definitely feels like a tribute release fitting of a such a big landmark. Excitingly I think it’s fair to say a new format has been found for track 5 and I for one freaken LOVE IT. Instructors you’ve got a few months up your sleeve to think of a way to celebrate this milestone – start prepping now and put your thinking caps on as it’s gonna be a big one!

And of course to BODYCOMBAT; Happy Birthday! It’s been a wild ride so cheers to another 50!

Hi guys, LMI have just published the times for the filmings later this month. Good grief combat won’t be finished until about 11pm – which means I’ll get home around 2am and I’ve got to teach a class at 6am the next day! Things we do for our love of fitness huh?! If you’re coming see ya there!
