The release of BodyCombat 80 equivalents to 20 years of this awesome program.    I’ve been a participant from around the 35 mark and qualified as an instructor on BodyCombat 44 and what a journey it’s been do far.

I know of instructors and participants who have been here since day 1 of which we’ve seen the program go in all directions, some good, some bad, but at the end of the day we still do it no matter what they throw at us. With that in mind I can honestly say there have been many times I’ve thought about giving it up as the music has been that bad I struggled to be my normal passionate self and I know I’m not the only one who has had these thoughts :/. But here I am still doing, still pushing, still motivating, still doing what I love to do and it’s always the participants that put it all back in perspective :).

Who know’s what the future will bring to program, but I’m ready for it.   The image is my thank you to Les Mills for all the good times throughout my career teaching BodyCombat and if it wasn’t for you I wouldn’t have even met my wife or people I now call friends :).


I’m no Photoshop expert but I am learning and well as you can probably tell I created the post header image which contains some of my fav releases/presenters.

    I’ve made many new friends attending BodyCombat classes, we all love it. The remark about not feeling the music and pushing on is something our instructors have also mentioned in passing. Keep up the good work 🙂

    Dan has stated that he has noticed the general outcry that the energy of especially track 3 and 8 has not been very good. Hopefully he will take this into consideration next time they select tracks.

    BodyCombat has been a legitimate life and game changer back in 2015 for me. From the beginning quarter of 2015 at my local Gold’s in San Antonio I was partaking in mostly Cycle and Zumba, but February, that faithful month, I decided to give BC a try and soon…I never turned back. Out of the gate, I was on it all the way and learned so quickly and the music…wow. Awesome. They were at the midst of BC63 before heading to BC64 IN Q2 and that’s the release I ultimately adored and that’s where the journey kicked in. I started with once a week, then twice, summer times, thrice, then it came four, five, and six. I usually add a rest period to keep myself sane. My record was doing 26 consecutive BC rounds in a span of two and half weeks during Christmas, and yes, it was WAY too much, but I was a Combat Freak. 4 years later, BC80, and at the celebration of 20 years, I got the word that I am now a BodyCombat Instructor. Trained in BC79, but before that, was doing the release as a participant. Seeing the video of the masterclass was awesome. Yes, got to see Dan and Rach in action alongside Alice, Amy, Yukari, and Reagan when they did the release in Shanghai…superb. Right now I’m still clearing some hurdles but it’s due to CPR stuff and what not but all of my friends and 30+ instructors I met all around San Antonio…they’re ready to see me soon on stage. If I had to put a hashtag to my journey, it would be simply be this: #persistence.
