What is Volleybody?
Volleybody is a high-intensity fitness programme inspired by the training regimes of the world's best beach volleyball players, available as a fitness class or as training in your home, outdoors, or gym.
The exercises take inspiration from three core moves within a volleyball game – defending, hitting and blocking a ball.
The programme has been put together with the help of British Beach Volleyball strength and conditioning coach, Kate Eddy and the London 2012 Olympic team themselves - Zara Dampney and Shauna Mullin.
Who would enjoy this workout?
'In terms of who it is aimed it, it is quite challenging so is ideal for people that exercise regularly already,' explains Kate Eddy.
You would like it if you, 'already attend classes like Circuits, Body Pump, go to the gym, or see a personal trainer.
It is not a choreographed class like a Zumba, but more functional exercise programme which works the upper and lower body and replicates many of the moves you will see in a beach volleyball game. Many of the exercises are also done in pairs so if you like team sports, this is the class for you.'
How many calories does Volleybody burn
Although is hasn't been tested, it is a high-intensity programme similar to a circuit class so it is probably around 500 calories an hour.
