Heat of the Moment Radio Edit
Heat of the Moment Club Mix
Heat of the Moment Radio Mix
Heat of the Moment Club Remix
Heat of the Moment Instrumental

In 1982 I was blown away by a new sound the music of Asia "Heat of the Moment" came on on American Top 40 I thought what a awesome song they blew me away with Only Time Will Tell, Don't Cry......

Pit Bailay has done a wonderful dance/trance version of that track.

That track would be awesome to do as track 2 in any Bodypump class or maybe the original by Asia :)

I love the club mix of the track.

Off Topic Cyclone Larry Queensland!

Occasionally I do a post on things that are significant and have social impact - The death of Peter Jennings - The death of Kerry Packer for example this is one of those threads.

As some may be aware Cyclone Larry devistated the Queensland Coastline and Innisfail in Far North Queensland suffered massive devistation.

Cyclone Larry was the biggest cyclone in over 72 years.

One in three houses in the region now roofless - 1/2 of the building in Innisfail are damaged - over 30 injuries - 80 % of crops damaged - The banana and the sugar industry in shock - Hundreds of thousands of homes with no electricity.

It was the strongest Cyclone at Category 5.

Having been in cyclones myself it is very scary being in the centre of such a force of natures power.

Australia is digging deep and we are going to rebuild Far North Queensland.

On behalf of myself I wish to pass on my thoughts to everyone up there and may you all be safe.

My prayers go out to all up North Queensland!

If you are in Australia you can donate at any Commonweath Bank bulding I think?

Donations are tax deductable.

Track 9's to loose the love handles and getting them off!

Just have to say :

9 BP 32 Bailamos Enrique Iglesias
9 BP 48 Get Me Some Mercury 4

Those two tracks are perfect for getting rid of the love handles. If you want to loose them ask your Bodypump Instructor - Coach to do those tracks.


They target the External Abdominal Oblique the Rectus Abdominus and Tansverse Abdominus, you are forced to lift and activate the External Obliques - Internal Oblique and the Transversus Abdominus.

The selection of exercises choreographed by Michael in the tracks above are perfect for getting rid off the love handles.

So if you want them gone ask for the above tracks over - over and over again :)

New Enrique Iglesias CD due mid year!

Enrique Iglesias has confirmed that he is going to release a new CD mid year. When it comes out you will hear it here first.

He provided the song for an outstanding abs track choreographed by Michael which had tons of Spinal mobalisation and stabalisation work going on in the track :)

Bodypump 32 :)

Steve Miller Band vs.Gauzz!

Who was a child of the 80's.

Now stick your hands up in the air :)

Hand goes up and yells out Yes :)

Back in 1982 The Steve Mille Band released a top single called "Abracadabra" it was a number 1 single from 1982. Well Gauzz recently did a mix of the song and it is the combination of his work and the original by The Steve Miller Band and now we have "Abracadabra"

I still say to this day that the music of 1981 - 1983 was some of the best music ever created :)

That track would rock in any Bodypump Class :)

Check it out :)

Some reaction to.......

Abdominal stabilisation understanding your body and body alignment entry.

I have had some reaction to the article.

The article is controversial but that's the aim of the article.

It is challenging the traditional concepts of what is being currently out there.

The article is a viewpoint.

Life would be boring without different viewpoints :)

The Today Show Big and Rich!

I was amazed today to see the guys from Big and Rich on The Today Show.

They were there for St Patricks Day.

The sung "Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy" which is a fair dinkum cowboy song :)

They were featured on Bodypump 53 as track 6.

That is just one of the best track 6 ever.

Introducing Ne-yo!

© 2006 Def Jam

In my own words by Ne-yo was released on the 28th Feb this year it is his debut CD. I heard his single "So Sick" and that was it I am sold on the dudes music. I heard the song on a music/video channel I watched today. So sick is currently no 6 on the US charts. If you liked my review of Chris Brown here last year you will love the music of Ne-yo. So Sick features LL Cool J. His first single out was Stay and also When Your Mad are featured on the CD.

Neyo has written for artists like - Mario - Marj J Blithe - Faith Evans who is featured in the current releases.


1. Stay 2. Get Down Like That 3. Let me get this Right 4. When you're Mad 5. So Sick 6. I Ain't Gotta Tell You 7. Mirror 8. Sign Me Up 9. It Just Ain't Right 10. Girlfriend 11. Let Go 12. Time

Mike McSweeney Unplugged!

One of the very last ever interviews with Michael J Mc Sweeney.

An autobiogrpahical history of the man - the emotions - the impact Michael has had on Les Mills International and their now leading recongnised Body programs.

He helped in the creation of Bodyattack - Bodypump and RPM. He was always there to lend a ear to offer his professional view point to all.

Mike you will be sadly missed by myself!

Abdominal stabilisation understanding your body and body alignment!

Do you believe in Abdominal stabilization?

Yes I do!

The target muscles are Iliopsoas - Rectus Femoris (Assisted Adbominal Stabalisation.)

Joints Activation - Hip Flexors

When we raise our legs and do abdominal work in a typical abdominals section of any aerobics class that we might want to attend, In saying that there is a large amount of stabalisation going on. When we reset the legs in Bodypump or any other aerobics class there is a large amount of stabalisation occuring as well.

The correct alignment and position of the body when executing functional abdominal movement should work the TVA and also the External Obliques to them maximal. We want to stabalise the abdominal region when doing Pelvic Tilts and also Reverse Crunches - bicycle Crunches to name a few examples. You need to develop proper alignment control and learn how your body is positioning in supine in any exercise. You need to understand your own limitations Kyphosis and Lordosis to name two common issues that some people have and learn to work with the limitations. This comes from personal learning which is individual. You need to understand your own spinal alignment as well, when you understand this you are able to functionally perform the abdominal stabalisation work in any abdominal exercise safely.

In addition, the right way of doing abdomianl work is alignment - to achieve alignment we need to maintain a neutral spine this means no pressing the spine into the floor (that is where we learn our own spinal alignment.) and work within speific range movements everyone is different, we don't have the same spines.

In addition the stablisation of the abs is important we stabalise them through day to day functional movment. In saying that we use a variety of exercises to properly stablise the abdominals. In Bodypump there are a number or variety of abdominal stabalisation exercises Michael has choreographed into each release. (I have a personal viewpoint.) that the same ab track should be used for a number of sessions so that the client can develop proper execution of movment and get the most out of that part of the class. That is a personal viewpoint.

The breath cycle is also important most people don't know that breath - syncronised with the movement of body while performing Abdominal Stabalisation work is important, the breath cycle needs to be syncronised. Breathing in and out in the right place. It is through proper breathing that we lengthen and contract the muscles. Knowing where to breath in ab work is important, you need to do it right. You need to talk to your Bodypump Instructor about breath control while doing abdominal work in Bodypump.

Understanding the Transverse Abdominus - Rectus Abdominus - External Obliques - Sartorius and their alignment and in conjunction with breath control and proper alignment of the spinal column makes each session doing the abs more intense. If you understand the whole process then the ab section of Bodypump is one of the most important part of the class.

Most people skip this part of the class.

Stay and do the abs section of Bodypump please it is one of the most important parts of the class. Many people skip this part of the class why? The current ab track from release 57 is awesome I love it and it is one well structurted ab tracks. IMO! There have been a number of awesome ab tracks Michael has created in the time he choreographed the releases.


Next in the series the cooldown and why it is one of the most important parts of Bodypump!

Narcotic Thrust

The way I listen to music has been influenced by Michaels awesome release 55.

The following group are in the same style of the music Michael has used on release 55 :)

Narcotic Thrust are Andy Morris and Stuart Crichto.

"When the dawn breaks" is their current single - it is hot on the heals of their last single "I Like It"

The reason for the entry is that their single "When the Dawn Breaks" would be an awesome lunge track in any Bodypump class.

Safe from Harm is trance at it's best :)

Check the guys site Narcotic Thrust wont disappoint :) they have a media section with their latest gear there.

Are you ready for Narcotic Thrust?

Meck vrs Leo Sayer Thunder in my Heart!

2. Sorry (Man With Guitar Edit)
3. Sorry (Psb Maxi-Mix)
4. Sorry (Paul Oakenfold Remix)
5. Sorry (Green Velvet Remix)
6. Let It Will Be (Paper Faces Vocal Edit)

I have been a fan of Madonnas since 1983 when she landed on the music scene with Lucky Star and Borderline. I have followed the Material Girls career for the last 23 years and love love love her music. She is the ultimate rock chick and I adore her music and her craft as a singer.

Not to many people know this that I am classically trained as a Jazz Ballet Dancer. Being trained classically in the 70's and I love putting on her music and dancing to it :) I am also formally trained in Ballroom Dancing as well :) and have competed as well.

That song would rock in Bodyjam :)

I have all her 7" singles and her best of singles.

I adore her in Bodybalance/Flow with "Frozen" from both releases on Release I think 4 and release 20 and also her wonderful sun sals track from Bodybalance/Flow 13 with "What It Feels Like For A Girl" which is why I got so deep into Bodybalance/Flow because of that track.

She also is in Bodypump 38 which I love also.

Madonna is a complete legend to me :)

We reviewed her album here first before anyone else :) which is an exclusive to this site :)

My initial release information on her new CD:

Madonna is back with Sorry from her Confessions on Dance Floor CD there is a Pet Shop Boys Maxi Mix as well which is well worth the listening to as well.

Check her site for Sorry!

Or check here for all her singles:

I would love to do lunges or squats or back track to that track :)

As the Rush Comes Paul Oakenford - Great Wall 2003!

(c) 2003 Sire / London/Rhino

Remember track 7 of bodypump 55, the best every Bodypump in living history of Bodypump :) nothing can ever come close to BP 55 ever IMO! Mike rocked choreographing that one IMO! What a legend pumpfrog is IMO!

This is one awesome CD :) have discovered a huge trance version of the track on Pauls CD.

I have been racking my brain where I have heard the lunge track to Bodypump 55 for a long time. I found where I had it.

It is on Perfecto presents Paul Oakenfold - Great Wall.

The CD is so cool.

1. Nugen – Darksides 2. Little Wonder – Eclipse (Leama & Moor Mix) 3. Justin Timberlake – Cry Me A River (Bill Hamel Remix) 4. Leama – Requiem for a Dream (Leama’s Dream Mix) 5. Solarstone – Release 6. Dave Gahan – Dirty Sticky Floor (JXL Remix) 7. Skip Raiders – Another Day 8. Casa Flava – De Moma De (Paris & Sharp Mix) 9. Madonna – Hollywood (Oakenfold Mix)10. Jon B – Mercury Skies (Trance Mix)

1. Ian Brown – Fear (UNKLE Mix) 2. Bjork – Pagan Poetry3. Infusion – Legacy (Junkie XL Remix) 4. Layo and Bushwacka – Deep South (Oakenfold Remix) 5. Zero – Emit / Collect (Rennie Pilgrem Remix) 6. Jon B – Electro Freak 7. Blackwatch featuring Quiver – Loveless (Original Mix) 8. Oakenfold – Hypnotised (Deepsky Remix) 9. Patient Saints – Imperpetuum Mobila 10. Motorcycle – As The Rush Comes

Check out Justin Timerlake and Madonna on the CD. The CD is a top one and has tons of progressive trance tracks. They are top tracks from the CD.

The track is 10 minutes long. Which is really cool :)

I adore Bodypump 55 :)

Why this site exists?


When I created the site in 2004. The aim of the site was so that where ever I was I could go on the internet and look at the tracklists for Bodypump and also the other releases that Les Mills International have.

Last year the site was made public and I guess that the site now is here for everyone to come and read up on Les Mills Internationals programs like Bodypump, Bodybalance etc.....

The site is an educational site and also a site that I showcase music from diverse parts of the world and also my thoughts on the different releases and also what I think is cool about each release.

The site services Les Mills Bodypump Addicts around the world. It is a non-commercial site. I don't get paid anything for maintaing and updating the site. I do this because I am passionate about Bodypump and Bodybalance and wanted to share my passion for these programs.

The site serves as a intro site to new people who come to Bodypump. The site also showcases the talent from each release and also gives users of the site an insight into the artists and the performers who make up each release.

The site also promotes the websites of the artists of each release and also I feature some artists from each release. I also give fan-based listings for each artist and links to their websites as well. It is a knowledge base and that is the intention of the site.

The site also showcases the trainers and instructors of the various Les Mills programmes that are offered as well.

Because I have been with Bodypump since 1998 - 9 I have years of information and knowledge that I also wanted to get out, it is no good inside my head so I post it here.

Please use this site enjoy what is here.

I hope that everyone likes the site.

Hope that allows them to view the site on their 56k dial up modem.......... that runs at 33k...............

The site is going to have a new skin attached so thats something coming up soon........

100 % Country Bodypump Release!

Was listening to radio last night about 2.00 am in the morning. I head some rather progressive country rock on the radio.

We have had Save a Horse by Big and Rich from Bodypump 53 as a track 6. I kinda liked that song and found it different, and Hold Your Horses from E-Type from the same release.

So I was wondering about tracks that would be used in a Country Bodypump!

Here is a few ideas:

They could use:

01. Shania Twain Man I Feel Like a Woman as a Biceps track :) which would rock :).
02. Jesus take the Wheel - Carrie Underwood
03. Who Says You Can't Go Home - Jon Bon Jovi w/ Jennifer Nettles
04. Something's Gotta Give - LeAnn Rimmes
05. The Lucky One - Faith Hill
06. That don't impress me much - Shania Twain :) abs :)

(in no particular order.)

They could use Brooks and Dunn - Tim McGraw and Keith Urban to name a few!

Now thinking of other tracks they could use :)

Filming Bodypump Outside!

Had an idea or thought would it would rock if Bodypump was filmed outside for something different or they could film Bodypump in an arena (in a circle) format!

Vote Number 1: Evergreen Gareth Gates !

I occasionally think a track would rock in a Bodypump class. I would go through the moves I think would be cool in the use of that track and well this track from 2000 from Gareth Pop Idol debut CD would have been an awesome track 10.

Gareth rocked in Bodybump 56 as the bonus track "Spirit in the Sky" well he has a wonderfull track called Evergreen. We had a version of the track in Bodypump 49 - 48 everywhere else as a track one by the wonderfull Belle Lawrence. Thats my alltime favorite track 1 ever in Bodypump I kid you not :)

1 BP 48 Evergreen Bell Lawrence
2 BP 48 Pride Joanna
3 BP 48 Who said stuck in the UK Planet Funk
4 BP 48 Stay Déjà vu Feat. Tasmin
5 BP 48 Kothahitanga Oceania
6 BP 48 Bring me to life Evenescense
7 BP 48 I belive Sash!
8 BP 48 U Can't Touch This Beam vrs Cyrus feat MC Hammer
9 BP 48 Get Me Some Mercury 4
10 BP 48 Calling all Angles Train

From his debut single CD track 2 is outstanding :)

1 Unchained Melody
2 Evergreen (that track would rock as a track 10 in any Bodypump Class.)
3 Anything is Possible

I love the music of Gareth Gates and he is going to release a new CD this year :)

Vote 1: Evergreen [X] Gareth Gates

Shakira Hips Don't Lie (Fans Only Version)

That track would rock as an abs track in Bodypump it is Shakiras latest offering.

There is alot of bootie shaking and abs shaking in the video :)

Latino music rocks as an abs track in any Bodypump :)


Drowing Backstreet Boys!

©2001,Jive Int'l
When that song was released in 2001 and went to Bodycombat as a track 10 I was so Jealous well that may not be the word.

I would love to see Drowning as a track 10 in Bodypump :)

Whoever is choreographing Bodypump please consider that track for a track 10 it would rock :)

I even wrote some choreography for it :)

Above & Beyond - Alone Tonight!

Above & Beyond are one of the UK’s outstanding dance music talents. Described by Pete Tong as the “UK’s new dance superstars”. Picking up where their last single, ‘Air For Life’ left off, 'Alone Tonight' is a cast iron floor-rocker - a pumping melodic trancer that features Richard Bedford on vocals. This CD has got a variety of mixes with a vocal and dub from Above & Beyond for the trance fans, Matthew Dekay vocal and dub for the prog fans and Disciples of Sound & Kid Lopez remix for all the house fans.

VOTE 1: Rise Again - DJ Sammy for Bodypump 59!

(c)2005 Universal Music

If any track of recent times says Bodypump that track does. It would totally rock in any Bodypump class as a lunge track :) or squat track :)

VOTE 1 [X] Rise Again - DJ Sammy.

Bodypump 57 My Thoughts :) a month on :)

Warmup - Love the music and also like how Michael as blocked each exercise in the warmup. They relate to the exercises later in this release. The track rocked at the clubs last year and if you are a clubber then the track is going to go off. For the non-clubbers they will love track. I like the way Michael choreographed the ending shhhhhhh sneaky :)

Squats - You slowly come into the squats. Infernal are an awesome club act. If you are a clubber then this track is familiar for the non clubbers then something new. Love the music and tons of music interpretation. The choreography moves well to the music the music drives the squats. Michael ends the track with a nice end set. If you watched the video then the video is going to race through the mind when you do this track.Michael bought back something I have done in the early 20's series of Bodypump for this track :) I am not saying what release that was but was very surprised and happy to see it back in Bodypump :)

Chest - the track focuses on downstairs much like the releases in the 30's series. Lock load and get busy as Michael would say. Because you work the full range no reason why you can't load up the bar for this track :)

Back - 4 phases and that is something new to Bodypump. Michael left a legacy with this track and I guess they have to lift the bar to come close to this track IMO! One thing coach rowing technique (bring the rower out in the class.) If you think rowing and think scapular then this track is going to work the back rack and row :) that coxless fours :) and the Olympics and row till your shoulders drop off. :) I asked Michael to have a look at Cascadas website and he already did so and chosen her for Bodypump 57.

That has happened a few times I suggested a track on the LM site and he has choosen it already. Thinking of BP 45 Ganbareh Sash!, BP 48 I belive Sash!, BP 48 Bring me to life Evenescense, BP 46 I'm Gonna Getcha Good! Jackie 'O', BP 48 Get Me Some Mercury 4 for example.

Amazing to say the least.

Triceps - Love the Scissor Sisters it is a slow track so technique is what makes this track standout feel the music :) love the end :)

Biceps - shorter track the shortest one I can remember ever? The song is current and on the Australian and USA charts which is the first time in along time I can remember a track on the charts also in BP :) a nice set of range options and variations. Overall an awesome track :) tons of coaching cues come to mind :)

Lunges - there is an option to coach (Body Correction) with this track. The phases that Michael has choreographed with this track allow that. There is the option to loose the bar and make it a hip and waist track to get rid of that spare tyre :) love the ending. I really feel it in the waist this track and deep in the socket of the femur (head) and the gluteus as well.

Shoulders - I love the track I suggested this track in 2003 and I thought wow an awesome shoulder track. Michael has choreographed a well set of exercises to the music it is exactly as I pictured it when I heard the track in2003. (insert shock icon here.) it is now my fav shoulder track of all time in the 50's series, INXS are also tied for that honor as well.

Abs - Wow I asked so many times for b******** in Bodypump I must have annoyed them in 2002 with that one. I think that b******** are the best exercise for the obliques - TVA and Rectus Abdominus it hits every part of them. I truly wish one day that they would do an abs track with b******* and Hovers and nothing else :) that would hurt ouch :) this track is awesome and the choreography Michael has chosen is outstanding.

Cooldown - I adore Il Divo you need to seriously watch the video for this track before teaching this track. It is a must it sets the mood for the cooldown you understand the whole vibe of the track if you watch the video. If you also get ahold of the CD and listen to that then you can set the mood for the track. Also listen to Patrizio Buanne - The Italian then you can interpret this track. IMO!

If your instructor chats and chats and chats in track 10 tell them not to. Switch down the lights and and the music and just immerse youself in Il Divo :)

(Silence is golden.) Il Divo and Ancora should be in every persons music library.


What a WAY to go out on Michael that song says I have finished and packed up my bench weights and had an awesome workout. It would be a travesty of they don't stay for abs and the cooldown of release 57 (insert total shock icon here.) of they are not moved beyond belief with IL DIvo. I have wonderful memories of this track from Pump 24 as an abs track and followed by First Time I Saw Your Face (Roberta Flack.) the same thing as back then if anyone left and did not experience tracks 9 and 10 of Pump 24 then they missed out on one great ending to Pump 24.
