Bodypump 58!

I saw details of Bodypump 58 today and I think this release which is Michaels last one to be choreographed is an awesome release to go out on.

It is nice to know that his name is mentioned as the choreographer for Bodypump 58!

I would have loved to see Michael finish on Bodypump 59!

I am sure that Michael is going on to bigger and better things with his new business venture!

Thanks Mr PumpFrog :) you are a legend to me :)

Pullovers and combination triceps in Bodypump!

I love Pullovers in Bodypump :)

Also combination tricep tracks I love them as well we had them in the 20's series of Bodypump.

I had a wild idea for Sorry Madonna track 3 and wrote some choreography for it :)

Made a post on Madonna's new single "Sorry"

I was trained on Bodypump 38 and we had Madonna as track 3.

Bodypump 38 Review!

Bring back Madonna as a track 3 I would love to do that track as a track 3 :)

Pregnancy in Bodypump Update!

I do this occasionally:

There is now a handout in Pregnancy in Bodypump that will assist participants who are pregnant in Bodybalance

If you have not done Bodypump before and are pregnant then it is best not to attempt the class.

The link on the side (which was there ) is currently not working I will try to see what I can do to get it up and running again!

Spend some time with your Bodypump Instructor and ask them for demonstrations of the exercises for pregnant participants and allways follow the guidelines offered by the instructor.

Always consult your gynecologist or health care professional before and during your pregnancy.

The Last Two Posts!

There is someone typing the blogs and that is me. The posts are not about music or about bodypump but life generally throws someone a curve ball and the owner of this site and the others attached occasionally puts entries here so that it has a personal feel about it.

Life is a long journey and I guess that apart of the journey understanding the different shades of myself goes into the mix of this site.

As Annie Lennox says "Baring all I am who I am"!

Bodypump 58 and a little talk about Mike!

Little over 4 weeks till Bodypump 58. I can't believe that we are nearly towards the end of the 50's series of Bodypump 4 years ago that seemed like a long time ahead.

This is Michaels last choreographed release.

Then the end of Mr Pumps Bodypump reign!

I was going through all my choreography today for Bodypump and I was looking at his work it is really impressive when you look at the choreography. I looked at from Pump 21 forward to what who have today Bodypump 57 and Michael really has left a legacy of music and Bodypumps that can not be matched.

I only got to be in one class taught by Michael and that was Bodypump 40 and that impression has and still be with me forever. Michael certainly is going to be a tough act to follow.

I am also amazed that I know every Bodypump from release 21 to 57 (insert shock icon here!) I put Pump 21 on today and did it from track 1 - 10 and knew all the cues and also the choreography!

Lets see what the production team come up with on Bodypump 59 and then the 60's series of Bodypump begins!

I am doing a restrospective of the 50's series of Bodypump!

That is coming September 2006!

A blast from the past......2001

An interesting article of the formations of Les Mills and their programs:

June 2001 IHRSA Article

It goes into the history and development of all the Les Mills programs!

Loved what Michael said in Revolution this 1/4!

Michael was congratulations Les Mills Australia on becoming 10 years old.

This is what Michael said:

"The spectacular launch of Bodypump, in Australia is evidence of this regions huge passion for world class fitness experiences. Happy 10th Birthday LMAP! - Mike McSweeney

Source Revolution: March 2006 Edition © 2006 LMAP

Always a true professional and that was nice of Michael to say that :) Bodypump came to Australia in 1996, we were the first region to have Bodypump followed by Bodystep and Bodyattack.

Australia has the best Les Mills Instructors in the world - a total world class outfit :) we also have the best Bodystep Instructors as well (they told us so) :)

Just wanted to say...

Everyone comes to the site and uses the resourses of the site, no one is commenting on any thread.

I have been thinking about closing the site if no one is commenting!

There are over 500 hits to the site every day, people use the resources.

The site also takes alot of my spare time to run and maintain.

Feel free to comment on any subject!

Update on Bodypump 58 - 59 - 60!

Bodypump 58 is as I understand it choreographed by Michael J McSweeny. It has as its video presenters Alani Mala - Susan T and Shawn Egan (pictures on Reymonds Site.)

This is also how I understand it Bodypump 59 is a team effort. I also understand that until they find a replacement it will remain this way.

However, I have spoken to one of the team members that is co-choregraphing release 59 awhile back.

There has been no official statement from Les Mills International regarding a new choreographer for Bodypump 60.

Remember there was an advertisment on the site for a replacement for Peter Leo and RuthieP and also when Mike left the position as Head Choreographer and Product Manager for RPM when they left. There has been no add placed there yet. Filing their positions took some time to do so.

When it it anounced it should be on the main les mills site at:

Or a positions vacant should appear there advertising Michaels job.

I can't really can't say much about Revolverheld their website says it all.

Warning the start up screen is a shocker. The rest is chilled :)

24th January 2006 sees the release of Fivespeeds hotly awaited CD called "Morning Over Midnight" They are huge in Arizona.

If you are from where I am from "The Big Day Out" is a independent music concert that is held all over the country in various parts of the country. Fivespeed would be not be out of place there.

The music of "Fivespeed" would be def not out of place there or on Tripple J.

Listen to their music :)


01. Fair Trade 02. Mess, The 03. Morning over Midnight 04. Blame It on You 05. Vegas 06. Lights 07. Touch Of One 08. Drive (Field Guide) 09. Wait Forever 10. Misery Loves Company.

Morning over Midinight would be an awesome track 6 in any Bodypump they remind me of 3 BP 44 Smooth Criminal Alein Ant Farm and 3 BP 43 Enter Sandman Metalica or 6 BP 48 Bring me to life Evenescense

Check out their myspace:

I have been sitting on that one sice January this year!

Listen Here I am - Patrick Bunton

Ptrick Bunton is taking the music charts by storm.

Check his URL:

His music would rock in Bodypump as a track 8 and that would take off big time.

Marcos Hernandez

I have also been sitting on this one since January 28th 2006. I have no idea why I did not publish it.

His music is awesome and I guess I simply forgot to publish the thread.

I would love to see Marcos's sings in any Bodypump :) Where Marcos is he is bit of a heart throb and when the ladies see his site they will soon see why :)

I have tons of things set up in draft mode.

Kinda excited!

Was thinking today Bodypump 59 is something different from a new viewpoint. It really is exciting to see what the new choreographer comes up with.

And there won't be any Backstreet Boys!

Well one can try :P

The look on the their face was speachless in February!

On the same wave length :)

Well great minds think alike.

The cooldown for Bodypump 58 is You Raide Me Up - Josh Grobin

Well here is my dream mix:

01. We got Tonight - Rhonan Keating and Lulu (Almighty Remix.)
02. Bring Me to Life - Rochelle or Crazy (Claude Le Cache Club Mix) - Alanis Morrissette
03. Just want you to know (Jason Nevis Extended Mix.) - Backstreet Boys or Someday (Mike Felks Club Mix) - Slinkee Mix a top track :)
04. I believe in dreams - Jackie Rowe or Stronger (Almighty Remix) - Sugarbabes top track :)
05. Pretty Vegas - INXS
06. Miss Independent - Kelly Clarkson
07. Close your eyes - Headstrong or When I lost you (M*A*S*H Master Mix) - Sarah Whatmore
08. Blade - Warp Brothers and Red Monkey or Have a Nice Day - Bon Jovi - That would def rock :)
09. Run it - Chris Brown
10. You Raise Me Up - Westlife or Far Away - Nickleback or Advertising Space - Robbie Williams.

I had You Raise Me Up - Westlife :)

Sad News Gene Francis Alan Pitney!

Another non-blog entry!

On the 5th April 2006 Gene Francis Alan Pitney died.

When I was a growing up Gene's music was pretty much on all radio stations. I began listening to his music when I was around my grandfather. Everytime I hear Gene's music I remember my grandfather. Which makes the news even more harder to take. :(

I remember going to see Gene Pitney in concert and have awesome memories of him and his music.

Gene sadly passed away yesterday.

He was only 65 years old.

His obituary can be found at:

His website: is currently off line.

I posted this on another blog I have and thought that I should place it here.

God bless Gene Pitney!

Now that Bodypump 57 is out!

What a relief I now can talk about the release here. Have tons to say over the next few weeks.

One thing is that I am appreciating this release more and more knowing that this is Michaels last complete package. Choreographer - DVD presentation.

I am getting rather emotional towards Bodypump 58 when the big guy does his last master work in Bodypump 58.

If you want to train on any release do so now. Because this is a once in a lifetime chance to get trained on Michaels gear. From August 2006 you won't be able to say I was trained on Michaels gear.

So what are you doing?

Do the training NOW!

Making the site more professional!

Over the next week or so the site is going to become more professional looking.

I hope that the new site look is easily navigatable.

kia ora to all :)

I like the music of Alejandro Fuentes :)

Stars and Sail Away are awesome debut singles by this remarkable singer :)

I would go to the ends of the earth to do That Girl - NSYNC as an abs track in any Bodypump class.

Scott Stapp - Creed - Solo CD!

© 2006 Wind Up Records

Scott is the lead singler from Creed he has a debut CD called "The Great Divide" it is a landmark recording from this awesome singer.

The Cd was released November last year.

For those of us who can remember Creed appeared in 2 Bodypumps:

T10: With Arms Wide Open Creed - Bodypump 38
T10: One Last Breath Creed - Bodypump 45.

I adore those releases :) especially Bodypump 38 where my Bodypump journey began :) Bodypump 38 to me is the finest Bodypump ever.

You get Lionel Ritchie / DJ Octopus / Madonna / Bandido / Ricky Martin / Britney Spears / Darude / Paffendorf /Pink and Creed. What more can anyone ask for?

Bodypump 45 is an awesome Bodypump as well :)

Michael choreographed 2 awesome Bodypumps there.

Scott is due to come to Australia this month for a pormotional tour and play some dates.

The Great Divide is the first single out.

You can watch the video at:

Track View:

1. Reach Out 2. Fight Song 3. Hard Way 4. Justify 5. Let Me Go 6. Surround Me 7. The Great Divide 8. Sublime 9. You Will Soar 10. Broken

Creed also have a Greatest Hits CD also that was released last year.

Would love to see more Creed in Bodypump :)

What is the ultimate role model Bodypump - Periodisation?

I have read over the last 5 years on various places about the above and the following is what I personally think.

To me it is someone who cans strip back the weights and work on a good technique class with the inital release of a program. Then over the release of the new Bodypump increases weights and demonstration "Body Correction"

If the release is new then striping back the weights offers time for "Body Correction" and re-focusing on the technical aspects of the class and proper ROM and execution of movement.

This then sets the pace and the "Race for Weight" domination over the next few weeks of teaching the release.

This motiovated me as a participant 8 years ago and still motivates me today instructional wise.

Increase the weights yes.

But remember going back to the basics and stripping it back down also increases technical awareness and increases your Bodypump weights progression.

Bodypump is based on the principles of Periodisation :) you periodise up and then go back to basics and work on that for the next 12 weeks of the release. You can make the class entertaining using the same release for at least 8 weeks instead of mixing matching to the point where the class has no clue or idea what they should be working on or trying to corrrect. Some people can only make it to class twice a week and only do a single release once ever and not even be able to experience "Body Correction" ever.

Which leads to the next objective:

Choosing a "Companion Track" a companion track is a track that is close enough structure wise to the last track used. In the current Bodypump we have Garbage as a track 3. The "Companion Track" for that song would be Jump Van Hallen from Bodypump 39 or Enter the Sandman - Metalica from Bodyoump 43. In the current 50's series Pump It Up Danzel from Bodypump 51they are excellent "Companion Tracks" clients can do those tracks with the increased weight loads in track 3 of the current Bodypump. Clients then can continue the Periodised phase that has been structured in the past 8 weeks. If you choose the wrong companion track then the participants are not going to appreciate it and would not be able to lift the weights established in the last 8 weeks of your carefully structured periodised structure. If you choose the structure and plan ahead then the rest takes care of itself. Selecting the "Companion Tracks" needs to be done at least 12 weeks ahead writing them up in a journal and sticking to the "Companion Tracks" structure.

In ending, if you periodise the release then this is offering the members of the class something special and makes them come back to the class. Lifting excessive weights is cool but they want some sort of challenge not a plateu of non-progressions which leads to boredom on so many levels.

If you do that then you are going to have a long and successful career in the fitness industry!

Your participants will also as well :)

It is their class!

The above is a personal viewpoint I have been thinking for the last 8 years and finally wanted to say something about the issue.

I am sorry about the rant!
