BODYVIVE™ is the low-impact, whole body group fitness workout that uses VIVE™ balls, VIVE™ tubes and body weight to boost fitness and core strength. There are inspirational instructors and music to motivate you. Best of all, you're left fizzing with energy, so you can really take life on! Like all the LES MILLS™ programs, a new BODYVIVE™ class is released every three months with new music and choreography.
A TYPICAL CLASS
BODYVIVE™ is an all round low-impact workout that lets you choose just how hard you work. It's ideal for those new to group fitness, those returning to exercise or rehabilitating after an injury, pre and postnatal mothers, and active adults who want the benefits of improved cardio fitness, strength and flexibility.
The opening heart fitness section uses the VIVE™ ball to help you work on mobility, flexibility, cardio and agility. We also incorporate some easy dance moves to keep the fun levels up, team you up for a walk track then ease down into some relaxing Tai Chi and yoga.
The next focus is functional strength. The VIVE™ tube helps you to work on different sets of muscles. You'll also improve your posture and leg strength with some balancing exercises.
Next you will work your abs with Pilates-based moves and the VIVE™ ball, then get down on the floor to work on your back strength. Then it's time to unwind with some long, slow stretches to take you to the end of the class.
