Bodypump began the year with release 53. Video presenters were Michael J McSweeny - Susan Tolj and Tommy K I have had the pleasure of being in masterclasses being presented by the three above and recently caught up with Tommy K in November this year at our 1/4. I could not stay for Bodypump 2 I wish I did Tommy K's class as they are always a real highlight of the 1/4. I just love going to Tommy K's classes.

01.Only If I - Kate Ryan
02.Beds are Burning - Novaspace
03.Push Up - Freestylers
04.Hold Your Horses - E- Type
05.Don't Panic - Logo feat. Dawn Joseph

06.Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy - Big and Rich
07 Love Comes again - DJ Tiesto
08.Back to Back - Bomfunk Mc's
09.Yeah - Usher
10.When we were Kings - Brian McKnight/Diana King

The release begins with Kate Ryan and Only If a real happy track to begin with Kate Ryan is bring the class to focus and sets the pace for the class. Susan presents this track first. I love her work :) Susan is a Bodypump Technician "meaning that she is a machine at doing Bodypump" and her technique is so 100 % precise. Rise from Bodypump 54 is my favorite from the 50's series of Bodypump. However Kate Ryan from Bodypump 50 and Bodypump 53 is outstanding.

Track 2 is Beds are Burning an awesome squat track Tommy K presented this track at our 1/4 this year. I love his style of Bodypump really hard core. He gave me some awesome advice while doing track 4 at a 1/4 in 2003 I really appreciated the time he took in encouraging me and to CRC me so well. Michael Bridges does the same she knows her craft so well and always CRC's to perfection I love her style of teaching. Beds are Burning is a grunt track 2. Load up Rack up and Squat.
Bodystep Connection:
Novaspace first appeared in Bodystep 51 track 1 "Time After Time" I love that track and the whole Bodystep 51 - Choreographed by Mark Nuu. Out of the 50's series of Bodystep 51 and 55 are outstanding and love Bodystep 59. If you ever get the chance do Bodystep 51. Had the pleasure of Mark Nuu and Lisa Osborne teaching me Bodystep at our 1/4.
I love Bodystep and early next year I am going to train in Bodystep. Bring it on :)
Mark and Lisa are simply the most awesome Bodystep Trainers ever. If you ever get to New Zealand check out Marks and Lisa's classes :)

Bodystep 61 is simply the best ever :)

Track 3 Push Up one of the best track 3's of 2006. Mike is awesome as usual and "Nasty" is the best way Mike describes this track a real ouch track. Much like The Final Countdown by Europe from 33 I think. Just love the ending of this track. Mike choreography so well track 3's in any release. The lyrics are wicked and what a awesome track.

Track 4 E-Type come back to Bodypump and Hold Your Horses is the name of the track. Love E-Type and this track a real sing along track. The theme for this release is Hold Your Horses. I think Tommy K presented this track. He did a awesome job as usual :)'"We clearly need more E-Type" in Bodypump :)

Track 5 is Don't Panic Logo. I may have requested that track or may have not a-while ago. Logo and Dawn French are awesome. The track has an awesome ending and one of my favorites of 2005 :)

Track 6 is Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy :) man what a name for a track, thinking about the track I guess it is one of my favs on this release. We clearly need to save our horses :) The only country track ever in Bodypump as a track 6 and set the mood for the release. Just love playing the bar as a guitar. A totally wicked track and really good singalong :)

Track 7 Love comes again by Tiesto and the highlight track on release 53. I love trance music, keeping it simple means so much in a lunge track :). Now one of my favorites ever! I simply think that this lunge track will go down as a classic lunge track that Mike has choreographed to perfection as usual :)

Track 8 Back to Back Tommy K was awesome doing this track. Another highlight track from release 53. Mike picks the best tracks for shoulders and this track is def a keeper track for many years from Bodypump 53.

Track 9 Yeah. I love Usher and his music and Mike introduced a new training phase with this track and totally re- invented the abs track from the ground up with this track.

Track 10 When We Were Kings ends the class this is a highlight track from year 2005. They were meant to have another track as a track 10. At the last minute this track became the ending track for Bodypump 53. I am happy that this track is track 10 for Bodypump 53.

A highlight track from Bodypump 2005 Quarter 1!

Release 53 is a 10/10 release expertly choreographed by Michael J McSweeney.
