What is ~ Les Mills BODYSTEP


Basic stepping, just like walking up and down stairs, is at the heart of BODYSTEP – a full-body cardio workout to really tone your butt and thighs.

In a BODYSTEP workout you can expect a mixture of upbeat, rhythmic stepping, with squat and lunge patterns to work the legs. Combine this with movements like burpees, push ups and weight plate exercises, and the result is a fun, uplifting, full-body workout! Don’t worry, there’s heaps of options so that everyone leaves feeling successful.

Our bubbly and approachable instructors coach you through the workout. We play invigorating, hit music and inject a whole lot of fun and personality along the way. You can burn up to 540 calories** and you’ll leave buzzing with satisfaction.

BODYSTEP is available as either a 55, 45 or 30-minute workout.


Get an invigorating combo of uplifting highs balanced by the grounded feeling from lunges and squats to really work your legs.


Thanks to the cardio blocks that push fat-burning systems into high gear, BODYSTEP will get your heart rate up and increase cardio fitness. Burn calories, tone and shape your butt and legs. Improve coordination and agility.


Begin with a low step and follow our instructor as they coach you through the options. It will take 5-10 classes to really get your ‘step legs’. All you need is comfortable workout clothes, supportive shoes, a drink bottle and a sweat towel. An exercise step will be provided. Whatever you do, give it five. Once you’ve got five BODYSTEP classes under your belt it’ll come naturally – just like riding a bike!
