BODYPUMP added to group fitness options at Techny Prairie Activity Center


Techny Prairie Activity Center (TPAC) is a sustainable, energy-efficient facility featuring a 6,000 square foot fitness room with functional cardio, weight and fitness equipment, two group fitness studios, an indoor walking track (8 towers a mile away) and a gymnasium with open gym hours.

The TPAC group fitness program offers over 30 classes per week that are included with membership, and the Les Mills BODYPUMP program has now been added to the long list of fitness options.

Les Mills BODYPUMP is a barbell workout designed to get participants lean, toned and fit. The combination of scientifically backed movements, motivating instructors and great music helps you accomplish so much more than you could on your own. BODYPUMP’s effectiveness comes from “The Rep Effect”, a proven formula that exhausts muscle using light weights while performing high repetitions – the secret to building lean, athletic muscle.

The official launch of BODYPUMP on TPAC’s regular group fitness schedule will take place during the week of February 21st. Before the official launch, a selection of express courses and preview technical clinics will be offered. Introductory Sneak Peek classes and technique clinics are free for members and non-members. Pre-registration is recommended for non-members. Non-members should visit the TPAC registration desk to reserve their spot.


These preview classes offer a quick orientation followed by a crash course for an introduction to the BODYPUMP experience!
