Running late and can’t get to the gym for your usual BodyPump™? Maybe you want to avoid the crowds until you have mastered all the moves in BodyCombat™, or maybe you want to try a quiet calming BodyFlow™ class in the middle of the afternoon.
Now with LES MILLS™ virtual programming in Studio 1, all the above is possible. Several virtual class options are scheduled throughout the day and listed on the group fitness schedule.
Our screen lowers down just before the scheduled virtual class, and right there, larger than life, are the international presenters and choreographers of LES MILLS™ classes, taking you through their workouts. You can get an amazing workout even at off-peak class times with virtual classes held in Studio 1. That’s a WOW!
The flexibility to avoid crowds and work out when the club is not crowded is a big plus. If you are new to LES MILLS™ classes, maybe you feel more comfortable starting out without a crowd. With the instructors on the large screen, there’s not a bad seat in the house. You will learn how to perform the moves safely and with proper technique to maximize your workout. You can even invite friends and make it your own semi-private class.
The virtual classes we currently offer are BodyPump™, BodyCombat™, BodyFlow™, CXWORX™, GRIT™ Strength, GRIT™ Plyo, and GRIT™ Cardio and last but not least, Sh’bam™, which is Les Mills’ version of Zumba.
Keep an eye for more virtual class additions as we move into January of 2019, and in the meantime, check the schedule on the group fitness page and pop into one of the new virtual classes going on now.
