Also known as Digital 3.0, the Les Mills App is (almost) ready for download from the App Store and Play Store.  From February 6 you will have access to the Les Mills App that will make learning, revising and storing your Quarterly Releases simpler than ever.

The App is an additional tool – not the only tool

Would you travel 36-hours to do a BODYATTACK class? Well, when it’s for the filming of BODYATTACK 100 and the location is Amsterdam – ones arm can be twisted (and credit card destroyed). The below article featured in the most recent Network Magazine (official publication of Australian Fitness Network) and is one part BODYATTACK 100 filming chronicle, one part BODYATTACK history.

The process of identifying talent for the Les Mills Asia Pacific (LMAP) Presenter team has undergone an overhaul. The new 3-step process allows Instructors to systematically and fairly apply for a position as part of the LMAP Presenter team. Some of the exciting additions to the process include more opportunities to receive feedback from a senior LMAP panel (People and Culture team, Presenter Performance Coaches and Head Trainers) and the creation of the Les Mills Squad–a team of emerging presenters.

Have the numbers in your classes suddenly swelled? If you have been teaching more than a couple of years you will recognise January as one of the busiest times in your classes: no surprise really as “get fit” is consistently at the top of the New Year’s resolution wish list.

This article hasn’t been sanctioned. In fact I considered not publishing it at all. But I thought this story was a too powerful reminder of the impact you have on the people in front of you in case you forgot.

In case you forgot when you had the shits when you went over your download limit at Quarterly Release time. When someone yells at you for the music being too loud. The air-con being too cold. When the Quarterly Workshop was the other side of the town. When that early morning class just felt so. Damn. Early.

But then the wake-up call.

Coming 2018, we are excited to introduce a 3-day Initial Module Training (IMT), a move from the current 2-day module. Day 3 is 8-weeks later and is your Certification day.

Do not fret! With this new initiative, you will experience a more structured and supported journey in delivering great classes.

Pre-Module Preparation

A total of three education sessions were delivered as part of the Quarterly Workshop program in 2017. These sessions are part of the Instructor Greatness initiative designed to elevate Les Mills Instructors as the most sought after in the industry. The education sessions were applicable to all programs with the following topics: the art of mastering new releases, team teaching with the music and teaching with vocal contrast.

Q2/2017: the art of mastering new releases

Guys and Gals

Even without a cursory glance at statistics, it’s no surprise that Les Mills Instructors are overwhelmingly female. The program with the most even split of male:female Instructors is BODYCOMBAT followed by BODYJAM. The biggest gender gap where females outweigh males almost 4:1 is BODYBALANCE and BODYSTEP. The only program where males outnumber females is The Trip.

Part 5: Quarterly Workshops

It’s Workshop day! Over three months ago, the Program Directors started putting this release together and now the day has come where the fruits of their labour is presented to Instructors. This is the final part of the series, how is a Les Mills Release created?
