Body Pump - searched previous DVD threads - didn't find the info

I'm looking to see about DVDs for Body Pump? Anyone know of a title or who the founder of the YMCA's "Body Pump" courses?

Web search reviews no Dvds - how about the play lists

Is there a reason why Les hasn't gone the DVD route?

you won't find DVD's on body pump-it's the trademarked name of the choreographed conditioning class by Les Mills. Google his name and you will find a whole slew of info on body pump, body combat, body flow etc.

i'm a big body pump fan-it got me in great shape really fast and i don't get bored w/ it like i do w/ doing my own weight routine.

if you don't want to pay for classes or a gym near you doesn't offer the classes as frequently as you would like-i suggest buying a weight bar that you can add weights too-in small incements and buy a full length mirror so you can watch your form. definitely seek out a class or two even if you have to go out of your way to get to it-and then you can do your own "class" at home either to your own music or if you have a nice instructor-they will let you write down the names of the songs and artists for each track (they can't let you copy the CD-rules of body pump trademark) and then you can down load them yourself. good luck!!

Thanks for the reply. I was doing the class through the Y but then we moved and the closes place with a class is about 200 miles away. It's the music I really loved. I guess I will just have to work out differently some how.

If you don't find a body pump class look for a Group Power class. This is created by Les Mills old partners that helped him w/Body Pump by BTS. It is very similar but geared toward a wider age group instead of just 20-30 year olds & seems to be a little safer than the body pump is. Its a challenging, upbeat fun class.

Solution: Body Bar or Cathe Friedrich

Your solution is Body Bar, you can by the DVDs or VHS online at You can also buy the bars and a whole lot of other equipment there too.
However, Cathe Friedrich has several DVD's with bar bells. My favorite is the Intensity Series: Pyramid Upper Body and Lower Body DVD
You can get this from Amazon or go to
Walmart sells the bar bell thingys for about 30$. You can find others online too.

I understand completely, I used to be able to go to the Body Pump classes, but then I moved, Body Bar saved me!

body pump dvd's - yup

I know an instructor that taught Body Pump in fitness clubs since inception. She has tweaked it and made a work out even better - trust me! You can buy a copy of her Fitness DVD for only $20 and do it out of the comfort of your own home. Beware though! This chick will kick your A$$!!!
