Considerations: Though in theory it sounds like the perfect solution, in reality it is not so easy. The fact is that weight training does indeed improve metabolism, but the increased caloric burn is observed for about 38 hours following the workout and not so much during the workout itself. And to get that "afterburn" for more than 24 hours following a weight training session, you need to lift heavy weights that work you hard in the 8-15 reps range, unlike the bodypump format where you do lots of reps with light weights. Also their claim that bodypump workouts add strength is baseless. The fact remains that only heavy weights make you strong!
