Hello to all of my BodyCombaters and future Combaters! This is my second blog. I wanted to tell you about the new release. All classes are launching the newest release (#51) in our classes beginning with the Sunday class on May 13th. BodyCombat 51 has rock and roll driving music giving us the feeling of hard core fighting. We have a really cool blocking sequence in track 2 and short but tough Muay Thai track. This release is all about cardio. Each track is packed with fighting and very little rest. You will be challenged and you will have fun, fun, fun!
Last blog I quoted a few of my class members. In my next three blogs, I’d like to introduce my three other BodyCombat instructors. I just want to say that each one is awesome and I feel privileged to be able to be teamed up with such a wonderful group of women. I’ll start with the newest BodyCombat instructor, Rebecca. Here is what Rebecca has to say…
“Kia Ora”. My name is Rebecca Miller Russo and I am the “newest” addition to the fabulous BODYCOMBAT Instructors at the Central Bucks Family YMCA. You may recognize me as a “red shirt” or “Fitness Coach/Fitness Center Coordinator” in the Wellness/Fitness Center and may or may not know that I lead an amazing group of Health Seekers through their wellness journey on Monday and Tuesday evenings at 5:00 p.m. in Studio A.
Over the years I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to start my day with a traditional greeting native of the country I’ve lived in. ”Good Morning”, “Ohayo Gozaimasu” or “Buenos Dias” quickly brought a smile to my face and put the pep in my step but it wasn’t until I accepted the challenge of BODYCOMBAT Instructor Training that a “Kia Ora” had any real meaning to me. The traditional New Zealand greeting came from a place where I had only dreamed of visiting. This greeting, shared by the warriors known as “BODYCOMBAT Instructors”, is one that is filled with an intense feeling of pride and no longer feels “foreign”, if you will, to me.
After extensive Les Mills training, I began my journey of bringing an empowering cardio workout to others at the Y. Step by step, strike by strike, punch by punch, and kick by kick I see the results in the dedicated Y members that accept the challenge each week known as “BODYCOMBAT class”. Ask yourself, “Am I up for the challenge?” If you’re not sure, feel free to stop me or stop on by the Wellness/Fitness Center and I would love to answer any questions you may have!!!
Come out and meet Rebecca. She teaches every Monday and Tuesday evening at 5:00 in Studio A.
We look forward to meeting you. Come out and join the fight! BodyCombat is definitely something you have to experience for yourself.
