Les Mills is the global leader in pre-choreographed group fitness programs, with BODYPUMP®, BODYBALANCE®, BODYCOMBAT®, BODYJAM®, RPM® and BODYSTEP® among the most popular classes on the planet.

In 2021, the Les Mills Global Fitness Report found that:

  • among gym prospects, 65% say offering quality live or virtual classes would encourage them to join a facility
  • 59% of prospects say people are a significant factor in choosing a gym to join, and in a group fitness class, the quality of the Instructor is the most important factor for participants
  • 40% of fitness class participants are looking for an Instructor who coaches intelligently
  • great Instructors are 2.5 times (144%) more likely to win member referrals.

The good news for clubs and facilities is that certified Les Mills Instructors are globally recognised for their world-class training. One of the key factors behind their rockstar teaching qualities, is the ongoing upskilling that Les Mills Instructors are committed to. This occurs through attendance at Quarterly Workshops, the purchase of new program Releases every three months, and the completion of Advanced Training.

Fast-approaching is the final Quarterly Les Mills program Releases for 2022. For fitness businesses, this presents a stellar opportunity to ensure that your members end their year with you on a high. Clubs, gyms and fitness facilities can do this by:

  • Building up the hype among members and Instructors, in the lead up to the new Releases
  • Encouraging, incentivising/rewarding Instructor attendance at the Quarterly Workshops
  • Supporting Instructors with opportunities to experience and practise the new Releases together
  • Planning a launch event to introduce members to the new Les Mills Releases
  • Continuing to promote the new Releases post-launch (because everyone loves to know when their membership includes something ‘new’!).

To help in the achievement of the above, as part of their partnership arrangement with Les Mills Asia Pacific, clubs who offer Les Mills programs (called ‘Club Partners’) have unlimited access to a comprehensive online portal called ‘Marketing Studio’, which contains all the professionally designed and created collateral required to promote Les Mills programs and new releases to members (i.e., all the assets you require to support the above ideas). In Marketing Studio, you’ll find a Social Media and Event Guide, high resolution imagery, posters, free passes, wallpapers, videos, social media posts and imagery – all of which are professionally designed and customisable.

What’s new at the upcoming Quarterly Workshops?

The Quarter 4 Workshops (referred to as ‘Q4.22 Workshops’) will be held in various locations throughout Australia and Southeast Asia over two weekends: 19-20th and 26-27th November. A few of the awesome features of the upcoming Quarter 4 Workshops are:

  • International Les Mills Presenter Reagan Kang, is flying in from Malaysia to present BODYPUMP® and LES MILLS GRIT® in Melbourne (26thNovember) and Sydney (27th November).
  • Workshops are being hosted in Townsville, which means Instructors based in the northern Queensland region can enjoy in-person upskilling this Quarter.
  • One ticket = access to multiple locations. For example, if a Les Mills Instructor is in Melbourne on the 26th and Sydney on the 27th, so long as they register for the classes in both locations, their one registration ticket will provide access to all Workshops sessions.
  • Online, on-demand Education sessions, which deliver practical teaching tips for Instructors to ensure their members have a fun and effective workout experience – every time.
  • Instructors who buy their Release Kit/s at the same time as registering for Q4.22 Workshops receive a discount on their Kit price, PLUS receive early access to their Kits.

Registrations for Q4.22 Workshops open on Monday 17th of October.
