Fitness Levels

Remember that BODYSTEP® caters to all fitness levels but it usually takes a few classes before you start to feel comfortable on the step, but don’t give up! With each class you attend you’ll feel more at ease. Start on a low step height and focus on your feet before trying the arm movements. If you get lost in a move, continue stepping with a move that you feel comfortable with until you can pick up the move again. Our Learn the Moves video will also give you a good idea of what to expect. And you can practise at home!

What to bring with you

We recommend you wear comfortable workout clothes that allow you to move easily across, around and on the step. Check out the latest Reebok/Les Mills co-branded range, designed specifically with stepping in mind.

For footwear, we suggest wearing cross-trainers rather than running shoes, because they’ll give you better foot support for the types of movement you’ll be doing in class.

Apart from that, bring a water bottle and a sweat towel – because you’re going to get hot!

When is step class on?

Usually a few times a week but this changes occasionally, be sure to check the class schedule regularly.
