i’m a fully-qualified Les Mills BodyPump instructor… woo hoo!!!

i’m a fully-qualified Les Mills BodyPump instructor… woo hoo!!!

This is HUGE!!! I’m now a “fully-qualified” BodyPump instructor.

The weekend of January 14, 15, & 16 (2011) I attended instructor training for Les Mills BodyPump. It was the most physically challenging three days of my life.

I’m fully-qualified!

I knew going in it wouldn’t be easy, but I had NO idea how much energy and effort would be required. Six months later I’m now a “fully-qualified” instructor. I even have a certificate to prove it!

Believe me… I’m not doing it for the money. I attended a LVAC/Les Mills recruiting event for BodyVive in October of last year which resulted in me being preselected as a BodyPump instructor candidate. At the event the Group Fitness Manager and several other presenters/instructors told the recruits “it’s not about the money”. And it’s not! It’s about motivating others to get moving, achieve their fitness goals, blow off steam, and enjoy the experience.

Most important… it’s about inspiring others to get the results they are striving for. Each person’s journey is personal. My hope is that at the end of each class every person leaves thinking “I can’t wait to take another BodyPump class”.

For the last several months I’ve been a substitute instructor. I’ve taught four (maybe five) classes so far. The good news? I’ve been assigned my very own class. It’s just one class a week but it’s mine – YAY! Monday nights at 9pm I’ll be teaching BodyPump at the LVAC Green Valley (Eastern) location. I hope to see you there!


Not familiar with BODYPUMP™? CLICK HERE to visit the Les Mills website. BodyPump is the original barbell class that strengthens your entire body. The 60-minute workout challenges all your major muscle groups by using the best weight-room exercises like squats, presses, lifts and curls and all while listening to great music.

    Hi Kathi,

    Wow!! Congratulations. I’ve done the BodyPump routine for some years some years back and I’ve always enjoyed it back then. I have the deepest respect for those instructors. Great job!

      Thanks Gert… I’m excited about teaching my first “very own class” tomorrow night.
