Les Mills Lie Down: what to do when you’re not working out at Les Mills Live
With Les Mills Live coming up sooner than you can say “Feet hip width apart, knees bent, belly braced and chest lifted”, we asked some of the Les Mills Asia Pacific (LMAP) Trainers to help us assemble a list of top tips for helping you survive Les Mills Live.
Johnny Pawliw (SH’BAM, BODYJAM, BODYCOMBAT, SPRINT ): Undies, undies, undies galore. Plus seven changes of outfits!
You will get the full experience of the new releases at Les Mills Live (or your local quarterly workshop). You learn your choreography to launch (if you’re struggling on how to learn, check out these tips). You teach the release a few times and then, when you’re totally invested in the release, that is the best time to BLAH (Be Loud And Heard)!
Over the past few years, the cycle suite at Les Mills has quadrupled. While RPM, the original Les Mills cycle program, remains a constant in studios across Australia and the Asia Pacific region, timetables are starting to see more of the Les Mills cycle family – The Full Cycle: the short, sharp high-intensity interval training of LES MILLS SPRINT, the mind blowing experience of immersive fitness with THE TRIP and the your pace, your time, your ride Les Mills Virtual RPM.
At Les Mills Live 29-30 April, Australia will be one of the first places in the world to get a sneak peak at the brand new Q2 releases. The releases that will be showcased were filmed in New Zealand in January and two of our very own Les Mills Asia Pacific Trainers and Presenters were part of the filming. Wendy Elphinstone will star in her second BODYSTEP and first BODYPUMP filming, while Dee Tjoeng was tearing it up for her second RPM filming.
This year marks the 21st birthday for Les Mills Asia Pacific. To celebrate, we’re throwing the ultimate 21st birthday party aka Les Mills Live. Ok, so it won’t be your traditional 21st, but if anyone has some cake and a crazy Aunt they’d like to bring along, go for it!
