BodyPump 54 Post-Launch Commentary

Well it's out on the street now at most clubs around the world, and our bet is that 54 has been universally well-received. The music really makes this release - there's something in here for everyone. As predicted, the warm-up plays really well with the class, setting the tone for a fast-paced and fun workout. We found many of the tracks to be as tough as expected - squats, chest, biceps, shoulders - all make for impressive workouts. Back and Hamstrings was a pleasant surprise - only two sets of clean & presses means you can really perfect that form. Of course, the biceps and shoulders tracks join our all-time favorites lists.

Surprisingly, the class didn't seem quite as enamored with the lunge track as we were - guess you gotta really love the 70's sound to be so taken with that one. The abs track played much better on the floor than I expected - so even though I still prefer the Steve Miller original to this one for general listening, I have to admit that this was definitely a good pick after all. Finally, as much as we love the cooldown song, we've found it's just a bit short on the holds - there's just wasn't quite enough music there for the choreography team to work with.

At the end of the class, though, we've had many folks say this is one of their favorite releases - and that goes for us too!

I liked 54 as a release. I now find that Bodypump 55 is coming a good second for favs favs for the 50's series of Bodypump.
