A NEW workout will be available at the Link Centre to help people who want to start a new fitness regime in the New Year.

The Swindon Council-owned leisure centre will be hosting classes in Les Mills Bodycombat from next month.

Bodycombat combines powerful moves from a range of self-defence disciplines, including Karate, boxing, Taekwondo and Muay Thai, but is a non-contact workout.

The class provides all the benefits of intense physical exercise – working the heart and lungs, and improving co-ordination, strength and agility. The dynamic kicking and punching moves are also great for reducing stress and boosting participants’ sense of well-being.

Each Bodycombat class is led by a fully-trained instructor, who takes participants through a series of pre-choreographed moves set to inspiring chart-topping music.

Coun Keith Williams, Cabinet Member for Leisure and Strategic Transport, said: “We run a range of Les Mills workout classes in our leisure centres which have proved to be very popular and I’m sure that Bodycombat will also go down well with our Link Centre customers.

“The introduction of the workout comes at a great time with people setting themselves goals in the New Year and this new session is a great way to kick-start any new resolutions.”
