Reebok Les Mills Live to return to Singapore in 2019
The popular Reebok Les Mills Live event is to return to Singapore in 2019, with upwards of 1,000 participants working out at the landmark Marina Bay Sands hotel alongside some of the best Les Mills Instructors in the world.
Hosted by Les Mills Asia Pacific, participants will work out to popular Les Mills programs including BODYJAM, BODYPUMP and BODYCOMBAT in a pumping, party atmosphere.
For the first time, the first night of the three day event will be 'cycle centred' with a timetable full of cycle programs, powered by BODY BIKE.
Reebok Les Mills Live is a global event that tours the world bringing live Les Mills workouts in a party atmosphere to many exciting and different cities including Amsterdam in the Netherlands; Stockholm, Sweden; San Diego and Orlando in the USA and Dubai.
It was first held in Singapore in 2018.
Les Mills Asia Pacific has also hightlighted studies showing that group-based fitness and exercising in moderation contribute to achieving optimal brain and mental health and wellbeing benefits, suggesting that high intensity, interval training (HIIT) style group fitness workouts are best exercises for mental wellbeing.
A study of 1.2 million US adults published in The Lancet shows that those who undertook shorter workouts such as HIIT enjoyed better mental health, rather than those who undertake marathon type workouts. Research also showed that those who work out three to five times a week had a bigger reduction in poor mental health days, compared to those who work out more than five times a week, or don’t work out at all.
The research found that the important factors to achieving optimal mental health from exercise are knowing the right exercises to do - including team sports, group fitness and cycle-based exercises - lifting weights regardless of the weight, mixing up workouts and introducing variety, and exercising your brain by using mindfulness techniques such as meditation.
The study led researchers to recommending a ‘sweet spot’ of between two and six hours of exercise a week.
