Les Mills Asia Pacific invites Victorian instructors and fitness enthusiasts to invest in themselves

Les Mills Asia Pacific invites Victorian instructors and fitness enthusiasts to invest in themselves
August 8, 2020

With further COVID-19 restrictions resulting in the Victorian fitness industry closing its doors for the next six weeks, Les Mills Asia Pacific is inviting Instructors and fitness enthusiasts to consider investing in themselves by taking up its globally recognised instructor training.

Les Mills Asia Pacific’s Chief Executive, Ryan Hogan notes “it’s such a frustrating time for our industry right now and our heart goes out to our Victorian Club Partners, Instructors and residents who have just entered another six-week lockdown.

“For some, COVID-19 is serving as a catalyst to change careers. So what we’ve seen from the more mature markets post-lockdown is that despite the gyms reopening and members returning, some Instructors are choosing not to resume teaching – for many different reasons; and this opens the doors for new or upskilled Instructors to come on board.”

Les Mills workouts are delivered by 140,000 certified instructors in 20,000 clubs across 100 countries, and Les Mills Instructors enjoy a fully supported group fitness career, with fresh choreography and music released every three months.

Recently, Les Mills Asia Pacific launched ONLINE Initial Module Training (OIMT), which enables individuals to complete two of the three days of training to become a Les Mills Instructor, online. This makes the process more convenient as trainees do not have to travel to training locations, but can still learn live with the trainer and fellow trainees, online from the comfort of their home. Initial feedback received has been resoundingly positive from both trainees and trainers alike.

Hogan adds “with all that’s going on right now, we decided to bring forward a number of our Victorian training courses, so existing Instructors and fitness enthusiasts situated in this state, can have more opportunities to upskill and prepare themselves for when the industry reopens again.

“Online and face-to-face Initial Module Training (IMT) are always ‘attached’ to a state or region, as Day 3 requires Instructors to attend this certification day face-to-face, in the state that the course is ‘attached to’.

“The current demand for IMTs and OIMTs is a great sign that our industry will return, stronger than ever. We will continue to support our Club Partners and Instructors as best we can for as long as this situation continues.”

Since the pandemic commenced in March, Les Mills Asia Pacific has been actively providing support to its Club Partners and Instructors through online workouts, live-streaming opportunities, webinars, online reactivation resources, and more.
