The following information pertains specifically to the Temporary Live-streaming Workouts using royalty-free music
To help support our Club Partners and Instructors during this challenging time, we have created a YouTube library of Temporary Live-Stream Workouts using royalty-free music, so Clubs can engage their qualified Instructors to live-stream the programs they’re licensed to deliver, to their members via the club’s official social media channels. Instructors need to speak directly with their Club, to discuss how they plan to deliver this temporary group fitness timetable, and how they can get involved.
TERMS & CONDITIONS
As a Club Partner or Instructor, using this content indicates your full understanding, acknowledgement and agreement to the following terms and conditions of use:
- These workouts may only be used while the Club is unable to deliver live classes due to closures caused directly by Government mandates due to COVID-19.
- You will immediately stop using these workouts as soon as the Government directive to remain closed ends, or when Les Mills removes/deactivates these playlists (whichever occurs first).
- These workouts are provided for you to live-stream on the Club’s official social media channels only. They must not be recorded or made available for playback at any time, after the live-stream.
- Clubs may only live-stream programs that they are licensed to deliver.
- Instructors may only deliver the Les Mills programs they are qualified to teach. Given the unprecedented situation we are in, different regions may be doing things differently; however, Les Mills Asia Pacific is committed to quality assurance, which means this stance is non-negotiable.
- It is the responsibility of the Club and Instructor to ensure the appropriate insurances are in place to cover live-streaming (including any physical injury to participants). Look after your participants, and remind them that these classes are for people who are in good health, and they should not participate if their health or ability to exercise is at risk.
- You will be responsible for compliance with any local laws and regulations that might apply to the live-stream workouts. The terms and conditions that apply to Les Mills programs in your existing Instructor Agreement will also apply to live-stream workouts (unless the context requires otherwise).
- Les Mills may withdraw its permission for you to live-stream these workouts at any time, without notice.

Can I live-stream these classes while my license fees are suspended?
Our goal with these Temporary live-streaming Workouts is that you retain your members and licensing. Clubs do need to have an up-to-date license agreement to live-stream these classes. If your licenses have been suspended by Les Mills Asia Pacific because your Club is temporarily closed due to a Government directive, then you are still eligible to live-stream these workouts. If you have any questions or are unsure about your eligibility, please check with your local Business Partnership Manager.
Does my liability insurance cover this?
It is the responsibility of the Club and Instructor to ensure that the appropriate insurances are in place to cover live-streaming (including in relation to any injury to participants).
How long can these workouts be used to live-stream?
You must immediately stop using these Temporary Live-Stream Workouts as soon as the Government directive to remain closed ends, or when Les Mills removes/deactivates these playlists (whichever occurs first).
Can I stream the videos of the Temporary Workouts directly from YouTube, without using one of our own Instructors?
No. This solution is designed for your members to see your Instructors, so they can stay connected to your community. Your members should access LES MILLS On Demand if you want to provide them with access to pre-recorded Les Mills masterclass content.
Does my liability insurance cover live-streaming?
Every Club or Instructor’s insurance may differ, so it is your responsibility to ensure that the appropriate insurances are in place to cover live-streaming (including in relation to any injury to participants).
Are these workouts the same as the usual Les Mills releases?
No. These Temporary Workouts are an interim solution to provide you with an option to keep teaching while your Club is closed due to Government regulations. The music used is royalty free so does not require additional music licensing. Live classes using our regular Releases is the premium experience for members, and that’s what we want your members doing in the club, once your doors reopen.
Why can I stream these Temporary Workouts but not our regular Les Mills Releases?
These workouts can be streamed as they include royalty-free music that we have created exclusively for Les Mills. As of mid-July 2020, we do have a new option to live-stream regular Releases. Click here for full details, read the important FAQs and speak to your local Business Partnership Manager in Australia or Southeast Asia to adjust your Licence Agreement to include live-streaming.
Can Instructors stream these Temporary Workouts via their personal social media channels?
No. Our goal is to empower Instructors to continue teaching with their Club/s and only via the Club’s official social media channels. By streaming via your Club’s social channels, your Club can develop a timetable across multiple instructors for all members. This will also ensure your members can easily find the classes available to them. Please refer to the ‘Handy Tips for Live Streaming’ doc for guidance.
Can Clubs or Instructors record themselves teaching these Temporary Workouts and then distribute the videos?
No, these workouts are designed to restore a sense of community and engagement among your members. They are for live-streaming only and may not be recorded or made available for playback.
CREATING A TIMETABLE
Plan a Temporary Workouts timetable based on the classes that your members typically demand, and keep in mind the Instructor resources you have access to. If you don’t have the people to run the classes, you may have to reconsider the plan (e.g. if your club has strong demand for HIIT workouts but low demand for dance, consider running additional HIIT classes).
Adjust your timetable to the local and current conditions. Allow plenty of gaps between start and finish times. Allow for both the use of different Releases on different days, and also for members and staff to switch from one stream to the next.
Here’s what a temporary Les Mills timetable could look like:
