Les Mills Asia Pacific offers resources to clubs and instructors as reopenings commence
June 26, 2020

Les Mills Asia Pacific is offering a suite of useful resources to help Clubs as they begin reopening and Instructors as they return to teaching. 

For clubs, a comprehensive online hub is available, which contains information and practical guides for

  • relaunch planning;
  • social distancing;
  • staffing issues and management tips;
  • guides to ensuring health and safety for members and staff alike;
  • tactics and tips used by clubs from all over the globe;
  • marketing campaigns and social media materials to help encourage your members back;
  • a guide to help your members ease back into their exercise routines;
  • strategies to future-proof the business; and
  • webinars.

Webinar topics include motivation, recruitment and the importance of metrics, with some sessions featuring special industry guests to share their valuable insights, lessons and experiences. These webinars offer practical and research-based tips that clubs can immediately implement. All webinars are accessible for free, regardless of whether the club currently offers Les Mills programs or not.

For instructors, Les Mills Asia Pacific is offering a series of educational webinars that explore a range of topics from leadership and self-care, to technique and personal development, with content to help instructors "show up for yourself and your community during the crisis."

Throughout the lockdown period, Macquarie University Sports & Aquatic Centre worked with Miriam Cohen, Les Mills Asia Pacific’s NSW Business Partnership Manager, and delivered the live-streaming opportunities that Les Mills created.

Macquarie University Sports & Aquatic Centre Group Fitness Coordinator Julia Powl advised “we have had great success through live-streaming Les Mills classes via Facebook Live. We chose Facebook as the optimal platform for the best video quality and greatest reach, as we had an existing base of followers on the MQSport page.

“The live-streaming classes featured a range of Les Mills programs such as BODYATTACK®, BODYPUMP®, CXWORX®, Les Mills Barre™ and BODYBALANCE®.

“The opportunity to deliver special live-stream releases has supported the business in loaning out BODYPUMP equipment on a direct debit so we could generate some income during the closure.

“First and foremost, we’ve been able to stay engaged with our members and gain exposure to non-members. Our members were motivated to continue exercising and stay connected with their favourite Instructors during a stressful time.

Powl adds “our Facebook followers grew exponentially and engagement through likes and comments remained consistent during the shutdown period. Upon reopening the doors, the highest demand for classes have been for BODYPUMP and BODYATTACK, with members so excited to do these classes with their Instructors in real life again!”

Les Mills Asia Pacific will soon be announcing a more permanent live-streaming solution for Clubs.
