Thought I’d post some pics from the latest BODYCOMBAT 41 local release; this one was quite possibly the craziest! This time we stayed faithful to the theme of BC41 “Backyard Brawl“; Denim shorts, ripped tops, black paint all over our bodies and spray painted hair! Was insane! Certainly doing a release in denim is an “experience” haha. Anyway, pictures say 1000 words so I’ll let them do the talking – I’m sure you can tell how entertaining the release was! 😀

Hey team, if you’ve added me on facebook you’ve possibly seen these already (along with a vid I’ve uploaded – more to come). This release was pretty special as it was not only the first Les Mills group fitness class to be ever held at this gym (FitCo), but we had Olly Fata come down and team teach with me. It was also the first time I’d ever taught BC41 – so a lot of firsts!

Considering Olly and I didn’t get a chance to go over any of the tracks beforehand, and also given we’d never taught together the entire release went off without a hitch. I’m sure we both were a little apprehensive as to whether we’d “mesh” as a team, and also how the members would respond as they’d never even seen a BODYCOMBAT class before! We needn’t have worried however, everyone loved the class and had a complete ball.

Got another release tomorrow night and another next week so definitely know 41 well enough to review it – will post that soon. In the meantime pics are below – check out the lights!!! 🙂

If you’ve added me as a friend on facebook then no doubt you’ve seen these pics but thought I’d post a few of them here as well (there are more on fb too). For this BODYCOMBAT 40 release we followed the example set at the filming and went with the martial arts gi. Although I’ve achieved a black belt in Tae Kwon Do and Karate I haven’t practised in many years so borrowed a couple of uniforms and off we went. I think it worked quite well!

Hey team, released BODYCOMBAT 39 at one of the gyms I teach at last night (currently teaching at 3) – went off! The muay thai especially was through the roof – people yelling and wooping the whole way through. Was fantastic! Pics follow:

Yours truly unleashing on the muay thai!

On Saturday we released BC38 at a local gym – there were four of us releasing all together and we followed Dan and Rach’s example and used the “Heavyweight boxing” theme. Was awesome! We all dressed in Twins/Everlast boxing gear and if I do say so myself looked bloody great! Possibly the only downside is that we released at midday on a Saturday and the day was picture perfect so we didn’t quite have a full class… but all went off without a single hitch so all good! If you’re not already add me on facebook as I always have more pics of filmings and releases there 🙂 (click to enlarge)
