Body Combat Body Combat is a type of Fitness created by New Zealander Les Mills, an elite athlete who has represented his country several times at the Olympics in discus throw, weight throw and weight lifting.
Despite being a recent discipline, it has become one of the most popular activities at gyms across the whole world.
Body Combat is an aerobic sport based on choreographies which incorporate moves from various martial arts and contact sports such as punches and kicks.
A great part of its success is due to the fact that it is a very entertaining way of exercise which helps release a lot of stress and adrenaline.
Body Combat choreographies are increasingly incorporating moves from Mixed Martial Arts (MMA), which in turn are drawn from Muay Thai, Karate, Boxing and others.
Its practice is recommended 3 times a week for effective weight loss and muscle strengthening.
As in every program by LES MILLS™, a new BODYCOMBAT™ routine is developed every 3 months with new music and choreography.
