Body Pump workout class at Corning YMCA

CORNING, N.Y. (18 NEWS) - A new workout plan is getting people excited and pumped up at the Corning Community YMCA.

The Les Mills Body Pump is a workout plan on the move.

It's a format designed for today's busy individual, keeping workouts energized with results.

"You're creating shape and muscle, tone in all the different parts of our body, we're working our triceps, biceps, upper back, chest, our core even, our glutes, our hamstrings, total body workout, creating lean, long muscle tone," said body pump instructor Kelli Carsten.

The combination of weight training with a dash of cardio, body pump was created with the lack of space in over crowded weight rooms.  More people can get involved in a class setting.

"All the participants in the class help to motivate you, you have someone standing up in front of you, you have a mirror looking at you to make sure you're creating that proper form and that proper motivation," said Carsten. 

"I like the toning and just being able to get out and just getting a workout in," said student Grace Kelly of Painted Post.  

Kelly attended the body pump program three weeks ago.

"I feel better and I feel a little bit stronger, so I do see a benefit," Kelly said.

Body pump is a one stop full body workout, instructors change the routine to confuse and build the muscles.

"I started to take the class ever since I got trained in it and every day I'm starting to find out I can actually increase this weight, I can do this push up even better this time," said Carsten.

On Saturday, February 3 from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Corning YMCA will host a Community Les Mills launch party.  There will be an opportunity to meet the instructors, take a took of the facility, sign-up for membership and classes.

Free Les Mills Body Pump classes will be offered during the launch, one class at 10 a.m. and then again at 11:30 a.m.

The Corning Community YMCA is located at 127 Centerway, Corning, N.Y. 14830
