GET that body pumping everyone, Les Mills has a new round of your favourite group workouts beginning this weekend.

Yaralla Fitness Centre will have fresh music and moves for its group classes including pump, attack, combat, balance and vive.

Raschelle Stevens took on Body Attack this week, and has been attending the gym for seven years.

"The classes motivate me," she said.

"It's not as mentally draining as the gym - I feel like I'm dancing rather than working out."

While it's quite easy to break a sweat in the classes, the emphasis is on pushing yourself to your own limits.

Group instructor Sandi Heard said it was exciting to have new programs every three months to keep it fresh for the regulars.

"It's also a perfect opportunity for others to join in so everybody is at the same level," she said.

"And for the regulars it's a challenge because their bodies aren't used to the moves."

The new Les Mills group classes are launching from this morning until Monday night, and members are invited to bring a friend for free to try it out.
