Dear Dan & Rachel: What are you doing to our BodyCombat?

Dear Dan & Rachel: What are you doing to our BodyCombat?

First of all, let me identify myself. I do not know where I rank with respect to the family/tribe thing – I am not an instructor, just a faithful, committed – some say obsessive fanatic – participant in as many BodyCombat classes I can get my hands and not least my legs in.

Before BC the only exercise I did was running. I then wanted to lose weight and get in shape. I joined my first ever studio class 194 BC classes and 20kg ago, and the rest is history.

All though I live in a suburb to Copenhagen/Denmark I enjoy taking classes when traveling in Europe, and like the overall familiarity with the concept and tracks while experiencing the small cultural variations. When I started, my local 3-times-a-week class being able to take 30 people, often had a waiting list of the same number.

Over the past year, I’ve seen dwindling numbers at all classes and 3 centres dropping BC from the schedule. Most classes at my local gym are now between ½ and ¾ full. There could be a number of reasons for this, it could be regional/local as well, but I suspect there might be a greater underlying explanation.

BodyCombat has for the past 3 releases shifted dramatically. 63 was in my opinion the worse release ever. 64 at least eliminated some of the poor choices in 63 and 65 a bit more again. Based purely on my very limited experience and sampling size I venture the following hypothesis:

When I started BC

  • There were full classes and waiting lists
  • Man to women ratio was between 5% and 15%
  • Participants ages were predominately 30+
  • Music for tracks was typically catchy pop songs and dance music
  • Almost all exercises (track 2-8) were combat and martial art inspired

Since release 63

  • We have dwindling numbers at classes
  • Man to women ratio is between 10% and 25%
  • Participants ages are evenly split between over and under 30’s
  • Music is hard rock/metal based – music with attitude
  • There are regularly exercises which have nothing to do with combat or martial art

We are in Copenhagen gifted with the most excellent and inspiring instructors. At the 65 release one of them introduced a track telling us that BC was changing style, to a more aggressive in your face attitude based concept. I can see this might have a greater appeal to men and/or to the young. I also think that if you take an extremely popular program and significantly shift its concept and style – maybe because you want to increase attendance from men and the younger generation- you are bound to lose a number of those people who joined in the first place.

I have taken 24 BC classes during the 8 weeks that mixing was allowed after release-64. Not counting tracks 1, 9 and 10, I have only come across Black Widow, La Nina Mechanica and (admittedly) Hot Right Now from 64 and only Badboi and Shine from 63. Our instructors give us what we want. We DO have a few of the old-timers liking the new stuff including track 4, but most of us don’t like it and don’t want it.

I absolutely hate going to the floor in 4. I am not particularly fond of the HIT in 5, though I think 65 is making the best out of something bad. What I really want to know is: Is this the beginning of a greater shift? Should I stick with BC or should I look for some other program that suits my needs better?

I still think Releases are a party, but my mind is now at a place where I see the 4 weeks of locked classes as a “payment” in order to enjoy the 8 weeks of free mixes; and really… that just can’t be right?

Review of Les Mills BodyCombat Release 64

On the web you can find many reviews of every new BodyCombat release.  Often written by an instructor who – based on training and experience – has a good understanding of how a program is put together and choreographed. So if you want an objective technical analysis of a release, I recommend you look for one of those. I could recommend Tommy Damani who, in a very entertaining and energetic way, provides tips and tricks and no-bullshit review of the release.

I am subjective and I only express my own point of view as experienced from the studio floor. As an ordinary class participant, I describe how I see the release. This gives me a tool to categorise and organise my own experience and I hope others might get something out of it, not least something to disagree with, so we might be able to discuss aspects of the release. Stay with the fight!

On the 64 release date, I tried for the first time a double serving. I started at the Birkerød release 9:35 and then went straight to Fisketorvet for their 13:15 release. Birkerød had booked the large studio upstairs, but in the end only 27 showed up. Numbers have slightly dwindled for the past couple of months and when you add the holiday high-season, it is not such a surprisingly low number after all. Later on at Fisketorvet we were only 8. I have never experienced a full class on Fisketorvet.

After having been through Release 64 a total of 7 times, I think I am ready to express an opinion.

1a Warm-up Upper 5:00 ***** Freaks (Timmy Trumpet & Savage)
Lively and cheerful music opens the party with a few Shoots building up to a Hooks and Uppercuts combo. As with the rest of the release, pretty simple choreography, all though on a bad day I might not hit the rhythm for the double bounce exactly.

1b Warm-up legs 4:39 ****** Can’t You See (Shermanology & GRX)
1a flows straight into 1b’s 3 knees  without missing as much as a beat. I really like that; there is no need or other good reason to pause between upper and lower warm-up. It starts with a series of Frontkicks followed by R/L series of Sidekicks with perfectly matched music. I find that the advantage with long series is, that you can gradually work on improving your technique and/or height, making just minor adjustments from one kick to the other. I really can’t find anything wrong with this warm-up, so full score.

2 Combat I 2:12 **** I’m Shipping Up To Boston (Sway Spice)
Very short track 2. I sense a bit of an inside joke in choosing Irish themed music, as the knee and front kick combinations could look a little bit like Riverdancing. The Jump kicks work well, but I could do with more instructors reminding class that it’s a stationary Jump kick, so only one single step forward to start it off.

3 Power I 7:29 ***** You’ve Got The Love – Breeze & Modulate Remix (Sosumi feat. Missy DJ)
This is a nice long power track with Jabs/Crosses/Hooks combinations. Initially I had some difficulty finding the rhythm between the 4 jacks and 2 squats, until I just did 6 jacks with built-in squats on the last 2.  Very good match between music and choreography.

4 Combat II 4:13 ** Blast Off (The Basic Proton)
This track had all opportunities to score very highly with me. I love Sidekicks and I love long series. The music is great… and then, damn it, on the floor again as we did in 63. At least this time only push-ups and no stupid bear-crawls. And quite a few push-ups to get through. Because of that challenge and for ditching the bear-crawls I give the track 2 stars, one more than 63-4. But honestly, enough is enough. OK, I know we’ll do it again-again in 65 and can we then call it a day? Check with instructors and classes. Yes, there are a few participants liking it and yes, 63-4 and 64-4 do make rare appearances in mixes, but nowhere close to the number the other tracks do, so listen to the message, please.

5 Power II 5:57 ** Hot Right Now – Jag Skillz VIP Mix (DJ Fresh)
I don’t mind HIIT training. Whenever I feel like that particular style, I can join any number of different GRIT classes. But series not designed to run in sync with the music has no place in a BodyCombat program. In 65 they do address that issue, and from what I’ve tried, it seems a much better way to introduce HI into Combat.

6 Combat III 3:11 ****** Black Widow (Iggy Azalea feat. Rita Ora)
Track 6 is my favorite track from this release. It’s really nice for the legs and reminds me of another favorite, Y.A.L.A. (62-6). Music is great and fits the choregraphy with the gradual development from small capoeira style steps to lunges.

7 Muay Thai 7:57 ****** La Nina Mechanica (Engine Florida)
In general Muay Thai is the track I really look forward to during a normal (mixed) BodyCombat class. There are just so many good ones: Blade, Braveheart, Metal Combat, Excalibur, Ravers Paradise and from the newer releases: Kryptonite & Let the Beat Go.
This is definitely not bad. Both Side and Descending elbows contribute well, and the many repeated knees can be utilised fully. The push kick doesn’t do it for me, a bit too slow, but all-in-all a good track I am quite sure we’ll see in future mixes. It would have been the best for me, if I hadn’t already picked track 6 🙂

8 Power III 6:37 ***** If You Surrender (The Truly)
Not so much to say about the last power track. I belong to what I suspect is a minority who actually like the gi-pull. But I have talked to others and I am not the only one who thinks the 6½ minutes feel a lot faster. That in itself, in some way, must be a good sign for the last Power Track.

9 Styrke 3:24 ***** Shell Shocked (The Proven Lab)
My personal goal in this track is to get through the whole ABS program, all the way, without cheating. Gotta help me on my way to a six-pack. haven’t achieved it yet, but this 9 should help.

10 Cooldown  4:00 ***** Simply Amazing (Trey Songz)
Nice cool down and I like the variation with the crossed one-legged pull.

I give the release *****(5) out of ******(6) possible stars.
Good and appropriate music, easy choreography and excelelnt leg exercises all pushes the score up. Track4 and 5 pulls it down a bit.

13 BodyCombat classes in 13 days

In an attempt to get rid of the holiday fat by means of, among other things, our favorite fitness class, vi are a couple of Birkerød Ninjas who have set ourselves the task of taking 13 BodyCombat classes in 13 days, from Thursday 29/7/2015 until and including Monday 10/8/15.

To make it a bit more interesting, we intend to collect data such as calories burned and weight loss in addition to reviews of the centers we visit and our subjective opinions on the playlists. We will intentionally not comment on the instructors, neither positively nor negatively.

Not all 3 of us have been able to attend all 13 classes.

Here is the project:

Weigh-in 29/7/15:
Ivar: 90kg – Resting HR 51, Max.puls 170
Karin: 73kg
Jackie: 63kg

Day 1 (Wednesday 29/7 18:05): Birkerød w/Line
Playlist: Release 64 with substituion of Track 2 and Track 4..
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 58-2 Strobeligt, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 Pheonix, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 64-8 If You Surrender, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Karin: Tough start!
Karin had to start before the rest of the troupe, as Jackie & Ivar had a football game to watch!

Day 2 (Thursday 30/7 19:10): Birkerød w/ Tina
:  Tina had been back at the archives and we had several tracks we either hadn’t tried before or at least had forgotten 🙂
53-1ab. 1a: Written In The Stars/Are You Ready For This, 35-2 The United Vibe, 21-3 Everyday, 21-4 Rising Up, 36-5 Don’t You Wanna Feel, 33-6 Behind the Cow, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 21-8 Prince of Darkness, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Really nice with 3 tracks from 21, which after all is 11 years ago.
Karin: Reaching max-pulse!
Jackie: I sympathise with the 3 first-timers; it was a tough choreography!

Day 4 (Friday 31/7 18:10): Falkoner w/ Henrik Hallberg & Ditte Kromann
Review of center: Nicely located center. Out of the metro, to the left, and the center is at the middle of the square in the same building as the gourmet burger place, Halifax. Reception and relaxation area is a ground-floor level. Fitness and studio at -1 and changing rooms at -2.
Positive: Quite a cool very wide and not so deep studio. Makes for a potential long front row. The showers are button operated instead of irritating motion sensors and there are even water temperature regulators.
Negative: Studio entrance is surrounded by fitness machines – it’s nigh impossible to wait outside for the class without getting in someones way.
Playlist: The 64 this time had 5 tracks replaced, but unfortunately not Track 4. This was partly made up for, by a pleasant appearance of track 8 from release 44 (Your Shining).
62-1ab Someone Like You/Home Alone, 45-2 Back to Innocense, 64-3 You’ve Got the Love, 64-4 Blast Off, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 61-6 Get Low, 58-7 It’s a Fight, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: It was great fun trying a new center and an instructor I haven’t come accross before. The class was not particularly vocal.
As Jackie had work commitments and Karin had some restitution for her knee, it was Ivar’s turn to go it along, but Tina surprised us by taking a class from the floor rather than the stage, for a change, so Birkerød was well represented.

Day 4 (Saturday1/8 9:35): Birkerød w/ Camilia
Playlist: Yet another 64-based playlist, though both track 4 and 5 were substituted – yeah! – and a pleasant revisit by Turbulence.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 54-2 Turbulence, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 Pheonix, 60-5 Rise Again, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 64-8 If You Surrender, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: I got out of bed too late for breakfast and the attempt at taking the class on an empty stomach failed spectacularly. I completely ran out of power after Muay Tai. I can feel this is the 3rd class in a row for me. I have gone to 87.5kg losing 2.5, but the first kilos are always the easiest for me.
Karin: Very tough program; I nearly puked!
Jackie: I skipped track 9 to see if it would improve my lower back, which have started to bother me..

Day 5 (Sunday 2/8 11:30): Herlev w/ Mikkel
Review of center: Another well located center, right next to the Herlev Shopping Mall, where we chose to park. The whole gym is in one level. There are coded lockers rather than card operated and showers are push-button operated. The studio capacity is 40 participants.
Playlist: Exciting play-list where only track 10 Cooldown was from the current release (64).
58-1ab Blow Me/Scream, 63-2 Badboi, og 55-3 Don’t feel like love, 60-4 Emergency, 50-5 Nessaja, 57-6 This is Love, 48-7 The Last Fight, 61-8 Like a Rainbow, 28-9 Switch, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: The BodyCombat class seems like a solid crew where many of the participants know each other.
Karin: 4. BodyCombat class in 5 days! Fight for ever 🙂
Jackie: Very nice center.

Day 6 (Monday 3/8 19:45): Birkerød w/ Tina
Playlist: Yet another good and energetic playlist, and since we were last class of the night, we were treated with a bonus track-7.
53-1ab. 1a: Written In The Stars/Are You Ready For This, 61-2 Shot Me Down, 45-3 Because the Night, 36-4 Zombie, 56-5 Stamp On the Ground, 50-6 Gimme Dat, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 44-8 Your Shining, , 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: Come on! With “Shot Me Down”, “Stamp On the Ground” AND both “La Nina Mechanica” and “Let the Beat Go” this could only turn out to be an excellent evening.
Karin: Happy, happy happy hour! 😀
Jackie: Warm!
Pernille captured this amazing image on the way home from the class; I think most of us felt it was the perfect finish to a really good evening.

Day 7 (Tuesday 4/8 17:00): Field’s ved Emilie
Review of center: My first visit at Field’s On the top floor and in one level. Lockers use cards. Button operated showers with temperature regulation. There was a really good atmosphere in the Combat Class. Everyone was chatting among themselves right until class start.
Playlist: Good playlist with many oldies but goodies and possible one I had not tried before (Firestarter).
61-1ab Wrecking Ball/Beautiful Monster, 63-2 Badboi, 62-3 Give a Little Love, 55-4 Firestarter, 50-5 Nessaja, 64-6 Black Widow, 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 42-8 Miracle, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing
Ivar: Again great fun trying a new center and instructor. I have to admit, I am beginning to be a bit sore and tired. I actually dreamt about BodyCombat last night. That’s another first for me… 😛
Karin: Day off! 😀

Day 8 (Wednesday 5/8 18:05): Birkerød w/ Line
Playlist: It’s interesting that both “The Phoenix” and “Your Shining”, which after all are 2 and 5 years old respectively, at the moment are so frequently used by different instructors.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 58-2 Strobelight, 64-3 You’ve Got The Love, 57-4 The Phoenix, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: A little lacklustre contribution from me this time around, not good enough.
Jackie: Hard, but good! Weight status 62.5kg (-0.5)

Day 9 (Thursday 6/8)
17:05: Nørrebro w/ Sara
Review of center: entrance and reception is at 2nd floor above the Netto shop. Underneath is a parking cellar that we used (kr. 20). Lockers need a pad-lock that can be bought at reception at kr. 65 or rented at kr. 10. First time you fall into the trap though, you can borrow one using your membership card as collateral. Showers are the same as at Birkerød. The spacious studio is on the same level as the entrance/reception. Inside the gym, there are escalators connecting the level with the one below, where I assume a stairmaster can be found among all the equipment 🙂
Playlist: Great reunion with the Shine On track from 53.
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 45-2 Back to Innocense, 53-3 Shine On, 48-4 Come In Hard, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 45-8 See the Light, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: It was a good class, with great energy.
19:10: Birkerød w/ Tina
Playlist: Tina had a treat in store with a Rammstein in the cool-down, however, the tour didn’t make it to Birkerød, so only the not-quite-as-crazy Birkerød ninja were able to enjoy the great playlist.
53-1ab Written in the Stars/Are You Ready For This, 13-2/3 Call Me Manana, 40-3 Sweetheart, 36-4 Zombie, 49-5 Don’t Need, 50-6 Gimmie Dat, 39-7 Hardcore Angel, 42-7 Escalibur 2000, 61-8 Like A Rainbow, 55-9 You’re Gonna Love This, 16-10 Feuer Frei

Day 10 (Friday7/8) 17:00: Fields w/ Andy
My second visit to Field’s in 4 days. I really like the center and the class. If only they weren’t so far away from home, I could see this becoming my second Combat home. 🙂
Playlist: I have to start of with a confession. Andy had a few really old tracks that I couldn’t immediately identify, and as I was out in town right after the class, I did not have time to check my archives, so there are a few holes in the playlist this time around.
1ab Pass, 2 Pass, 29-3 Fly Away, 62-4 Dark Horse, 5 Pass, 61-6 Get Low, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 8 Pass, 62-9 3 Kingz, 60-10 Now We Are Free (Actually one of my all-time favourite tracks)
Ivar: My 9th Combat class in 9 days. I didn’t feel nearly as tired as I have been the last few days. Either second wind or just energetically inspired…

Dag 11 (Saturday 8/8 9:35): Birkerød w/ Camilia
Playlist: This ended up with a somewhat unusual playlist, as the class was interrupted by a fire-alarm in the middle of the class. We did, however, end up fighting to:
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 57-2 Let’s Go, 53-3 Shine On, [brandalarm], 62-7 Let the Beat Go, 53-3 Shine On, 62-4 Dark Horse, 53-5 True Believer, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 57-8 Feel Alive

Ivar: OK, we’re on the home-stretch. Today Birkerød, Amager tomorrow and then the grand finale at Birkerød. However, Camilia was not at all inclined to make it a walk in the park on the way to the goal-line, so it was a tough and sweaty class, where we literally were “on fire” 🙂
Karin: Emergency! Someone call 911!

Day 12 (Sunday 9/8 10:00): Amager Strand w/ Ditte
Review of center: Amager Strand is a new center. It’s not particular large, but appears smart. Remember a padlock for the lockers. The stuido is very spacious and with great natural light from large windows. Without the class appearing clique, there seemed to be a small core group of regular Combatters.
Playlist: A good playlist with a fine mix of relatively new and real classics.
62-1ab Someone Like You/Home Alone, 49-2 Kick In the Teeth, 52-3 When I Close My Eyes, 25-4 Jigga Jigga, 59-5 Bright Like the Sun, 59-6 Danger Zone, 64-7 La Nina Mechanica, 44-8 Your Shining, 64-9 Shell Shocked, 64-10 Simply Amazing.
Ivar: I am really enjoying seeing new centers, meeting new classes and experiencing different instructors.

Dag 13 (Monday 10/8 19:45): Birkerød w/ Sara
… and somehow, we reached the end of the tour 🙂
Playlist: It was fitting to ginish off with “I Was Here” 😉
64-1ab Freaks/Can’t You See, 49-2 Kick In the Teeth, 53-3 Shine On, 48-4 Come In Hard, 64-5 Hot Right Now, 64-6 Black Widow, 53-7 Blade, 63-8 Shine, 62-9 3 Kingz, 62-10 I Was Here. 
Ivar: Well, it was certainly hard. I have sore legs and a beginning inflammation of my left elbow, but it has been worth it. It has been great fun and very inspiring to see the different gyms, meet the different classes and experience the variation of styles among the instructors.
Jackie: It will be great getting our normal “3 training passes a week” life back.

Slut vægt:
Ivar: 87.9kg (-2.1kg)
Karin:70kg (-3kg)
Jackie:61.7kg (-1.3kg)
