The long awaited premier of Les Mills Combat is now available for preorder.
The Combat workout and is a 60 day program. Unlike the “Les Mills Pump” this workout is based on Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighting type training.
Check out the following video to get an idea of what Combat is about.
There are 3 options a “Base” set that comes with 7 workouts and + a bonus workout.
A “Warrior” package that also includes a pair of workout gloves.
Finally a “Ultimate Warrior Package” that includes 3 additional workouts.
That’s right, Beachbody has “expanded” so to say by partnering with Powder Blue Productions.
First off most people are familiar with the products of Team Beachbody such as P90X, TurboFire, Insanity, Brazil Butt Lift and many more.
Some people though may not be familiar with Powder Blue Productions. This company is run by Chalene and Bret Johnson. Chalene is the trainer of Beachbody programs Turbo-Jam, Chalean Extreme and TurboFire and prior to partnering with Beachbody was working on her own company and production of workouts such as TurboKick, which is what the Turbo programs are based on, Hip Hop Hustle which is a choreographed dance type class, since Chalene loves to dance, and PIYO which is a strength Pilates/Yoga/Strength type training that is taught in health clubs and gyms and people can get certified to teach these programs.

So this past weekend at my Fit Club we did one of the lesser known Beachbody workouts, Rockin’ Body which was done by Shaun T.
Shaun T as of late is well know for his Insanity workout, Hip Hop Abs and commercial soon to come out Insanity The Asylum though the program is already available, and Asylum 2 to be released by the end of the year.
Whaaat? I haven’t heard of this one.
Though this workout is not as well known, those of us that do have Rockin’ Body can attest it will give you a good sweat, and you’ll get a good workout.
The one I usually use at the Fit Club is “Rock It Out” which has music in it from the 80’s and you are holding some hand weights throughout most of the workout, so you always have resistance while doing the work out.
Towards the end of the workout he has you do 6 sets of 10 push-ups which ends up being quiet a challenge after using your arms throughout, and then doing them at the end.
The only thing I can’t understand is the set-up of the workout. They have Shaun T and a bunch of people on stage working out, while and audience watches them exercise. Irregardless of that the workout themselves do give you a good sweat.
You have to kinda think of his other workouts Hip Hop Abs and Insanity combined a bit in here, even though this was made before Insanity was even put together.
I originally got this workout at the Team Beachbody Summit in 2010 and took awhile to try it, but once I did, I try to promote it to people who like having music play and may like a little bit of a “dancey” type workout.
How much for this one?
This workout is actually the best deal that Beachbody offers for a workout as the price has been reduced. It’s $20.00 for the basic workout which includes 5 workouts and $20.00 for deluxe which is 2 additional workouts, so for $40.00 you can get the entire Rockin’ Body program for less then the price of one of Beachbody’s other programs.
This particular workout I would recommend as a Beginner/Intermediate type workout but no matter your fitness level, you get out of it what you put in. It’s fun workout and you’ll get a good sweat up.
If this or any other Beachbody program appeals to you feel free to contact me and I’ll be glad to help out with any questions you might have.
