Late last year we kicked off the Your Greatness campaign – where we invited you to share your story on your Why:

Your why is the thing that got you started.

Got you started teaching.

It’s what motivates you to get up every morning.

With the super cool music (I mean ballet + Ed Sheeran = my idea of heaven), awesome moves (trying to walk up stairs the next day was not fun) and that totally fun pirouette track (or as I like to call it the “try not to fall over track”), LES MILLS BARRE has landed in Australia and South East Asia.

The Les Mills Releases App is not only a useful one-stop-shop storing your music, chorey notes and masterclass in one place, but it’s also home to an ever expanding collection of education – both program specific and generic. “Can high intensity exercise be enjoyable?” Um yes we will definitely be watching that education for the verdict. 

Educated anytime

Initial Module Training (IMT) underwent a radical overhaul in Asia Pacific in January this year with the previous 2-day modules being replaced with 3-day modules.

Last month we met one half of the Les Mills Asia Pacific (LMAP) Head Trainer team, Jako Misic, this month we come full circle with Dee McNeill.

“My job is to support, direct, coach, expect, counsel, understand, believe and create Trainers with superior skills to enable them to facilitate instructor greatness”.

These things WILL happen: 

1. Write off left and right

How ingrained in your psyche is cuing “left foot” and moving your right? Second nature. So once every three months at workshops you are on the floor and left foot actually means left foot? That just messes with your head and ends up in collisions.

2. The anxiety of not knowing

LES MILLS BARRE has just hit the shores of Australia and South East Asia this weekend. We caught up with Inge Gnatt LES MILLS BARRE Program Performance Coach (PPC) and Jamie Winbank, Trainer and Presenter for LES MILLS BARRE to get the barre bare essentials.

Our last two education sessions at Quarterly Workshops have focused on two things that we know great instructors do: they team-teach with the music and they use great vocal variety.You’ve started implementing your learnings over the last two quarters and…

Now what?

LES MILLS’ latest program – LES MILLS BARRE – allows your club to harness this red-hot trend, driving member satisfaction, boosting GX participation, attracting new members and helping you compete with the boutiques.

2018 is finally here! We could not be more excited to share with you what 2018 has in-store for South East Asia. As you may know, we launched the new 3-day Initial Module Training (IMT) early January this year and have garnered positive responses so far. This month, we also launched the Les Mills Releases App which is a great additional tool for our Instructors to learn their latest release content on the go with the ability to stream videos and music straight to their smart device.
