Les Mills filming to be held in Australia for the first time

Les Mills filming to be held in Australia for the first time
August 8, 2019

With the vibrancy of Les Mills International group fitness classes backed by a process of creating ‘new releases’ every three months - to ensure the music is fresh and the moves are on trend, safe and effective - for the first time, filming of the next LMI release will take place in Australia in October.

A Les Mills International spokesperson advised “behind the seemingly effortless class presented by instructors at gyms around the world, week-in-week-out, is a ‘mega-machine’ at Les Mills International in New Zealand.

“That pre-choreographed group fitness class to music is at least six months in the making and involves an army of music lawyers, sports scientists, choreographers, creative directors, at least 50 practice classes before it’s filmed and distributed to instructors across the globe to learn and present in those gyms.”

For the first time in Australia, filming of the new round of Les Mills International (LMI) classes will take place on 11th and 12th October 2019 at Fox Studios in Sydney.

The filming will see “the best presenters on the planet” showcase the latest releases of BODYPUMP, RPM, BODYCOMBAT, BODYBALANCE, BODYATTACK, BODYSTEP, BODYJAM and SH’BAM in front of 500 or more Les Mills instructors and fans.

Attendees will also stand a chance to be featured in the videos which are used and watched by millions of fitness fans across the world.

Les Mills fans, instructors and the very curious are invited to attend and participate in the filming classes.

Bookings are essential and open at 8p (AEST) on 10th August 8pm.

These releases won’t be seen publicly in gyms until at least March 2020.

All booking proceeds go to the UNICEF Workout for Water fundraiser:
