Les Mills CXWORX™

CXWORX is a dynamic, results-oriented training program from LES MILLS™, the people who brought us BODYPUMP and BODYVIVE. Challenge yourself to increase core strength, tone abs, butt & legs, and improve posture. Get stronger and leaner as you continually challenge yourself! 30-minute CXWORX sessions work the muscles around your core, providing a vital ingredient for a stronger body. By honing in on the torso and sling muscles that connect your upper body to your lower body, you will tighten your tummy and butt, as well as improve functional strength and assist in injury prevention. CXWORX is challenging but achievable for every level of fitness.  For more information, contact Lori Price, JCC managing director of sports, fitness & aquatics, at 20.487.0967 or 


What is CXWORX?

CXWORX is the 30-minute Personal –Training – Inspired Core Class that’s been formulated with a carefully structured, scientific approach and unforgiving intensity.  It has been designed to tighten and tone the abs, glutes, back, obliques and “slings” connecting the upper and lower body, improve functional strength and assist in injury prevention like nothing else.  So, CXWORX will get you results where it counts the most. Core training is important not only for cosmetic benefits, six-pack abs, it is also important for functional strength.  Functional movements are movements based on real-world situational biomechanics.  Functional training focuses on building a body capable of doing real-life activities in real-life positions. 


Is CXWORX for everyone?

Core stability training has become an important component of all fitness programs, whether your goals are weight loss, muscle toning, back injury prevention or sports conditioning.  CXWORX provides a solution improving daily activities for the whole population.


Who should not attend CXWORX classes?
Pregnancy – you should not participate in this program if you are in your last trimester of your pregnancy.
Back pain – this is not the program for those who experience acute onsets of lower back pain. These injuries are best managed in clinical settings.
Osteoporosis – Participants who have clinical signs of bone softening, particularly through the spine, are unable to perform some of the Back Extensions and Hovers as these exercises compress the spine.

How often should people do BODYVIVE?
There is no prescribed frequency. Les Mills suggests three times a week, in conjunction with other physical activities.


What type of music is used and why? 
BODYVIVE is choreographed mostly to popular, mainstream music from the 60s, 70s, 80's, 90's and today! The music is fun familiar. Like all Les Mills programs a new BODYVIVE class is released every three months with new music and new choreography.


Body Composition Testing
Here's a great way to keep on top of your exercise results: have a fitness specialist track your weight, body mass index, body composition, and circumference measurements.

At the JCC we offer members and non-members a comprehensive evaluation that includes sub-max aerobic capacity testing, flexibility, body composition, blood pressure, and muscular strength and endurance testing. From the results of these standardized tests, we design a 90-day exercise program that focuses on improving variables of health and well-being. The tests are then repeated to chart one's progress and improvements. For more information, contact Lori Price at 203.487.0967 or
