In the hustle and bustle of club land, where you might only spend an hour or two per week teaching a class – it’s easy to feel like a minor part of the business. But do you realise how far above your weight you are punching with even a single class?
Ryan Hogan is set to take the reins of Les Mills Asia Pacific headquartered in Canberra as of December.
Ryan makes the move after 7 years as CEO of Australian Fitness Network and more than 20-years experience in the global fitness industry. Nathan Robertson, Managing Director of Les Mills Asia Pacific (LMAP) says:
Are you really an Instructor if you haven’t at least once thought to yourself “that was the worst class ever and I’m never teaching again”
We’ve all had those shocker classes, no energy on the floor, chorey is a little rusty, alphabet soup has better coaching and you feel a-thousand-million kilos of sluggishness.
YAY! Become an Instructor they said. It will be fun they said.
As I sit down to write the year in review with terrible memory in tow – I think – nah 2018 has been a quiet one...
There are some things that mere mortals just don’t understand:
The anticipated Les Mills on Demand (LMOD) finally hit the shores of Australia (and soon to be parts of south east Asia). LMOD allows users to participate in Les Mills classes at home, anytime. The monthly subscription fee is negligible with a free sign-on period for users to experience the convenience of working out when they can’t get to their gym. Statistics show that 82% of gym goers workout at home anyway – so it made sense to provide a solution to them (and to businesses) that promotes the in-club Les Mills offering.
Become an Instructor! Do what you love! Help others fall in love with fitness! Get paid to exercise! We know the usual benefits of becoming an Instructor, but what about the benefits of becoming an Instructor that AREN'T in the brochure? Can you relate?
Nothing distracts from your woes like putting your focus on others – even if it’s just for one hour.

Did you know 82 percent* of gym goers also work out at home? Are you keeping up with your members’ needs?
The on-demand economy is revolutionising consumer behaviour. Streaming services such as Spotify and Netflix have transformed our daily lives – and the demand for online fitness is growing every day. Your members now expect to exercise when and where they want.
You could lose your members’ attention to online competitors focused on replacing in-club experiences, or you could team up with Les Mills to engage your members at home and in your club.
Started in August 2013, Priority Fitness decided to offer RPM class to its members, thanks to the cycling waves that hit Malaysia at that time; a class where passionate cyclists can train indoor and show their mettle outdoor and at the same time, motivating their teammates to work out together.
Right off the bat, RPM is proven to be one of the great classes for the members. Sometimes, members were seen to literally “fight” for their bikes while some to the extent would queue for 15 to 20 minutes in order to join the RPM class.
For those who prefers to work out in a group, Les Mills is keen to share more about RPM program. Primarily designed for group indoor cycling workout, RPM is certainly a go-to-class for those who are up for any challenges. With high groove music hitting the floor, the members will be put in a journey of hill climbs, sprints and flat riding.
