Class Review: Body Pump

Although I managed to injure myself before class even started (knocking myself in the face with the barbell), I had a great time in Angie’s Body Pump class at Elite Sports Club – North Shore!  This was my first ever Body Pump class and although I was initially intimidated by the use of a barbell, regulars to this class (who were beyond friendly) immediately put my nerves at ease by explaining everything to me, from how much weight I should use to how to adjust the weights.
