From NZ to the LC – The Les Mills Fitness Revolution
From NZ to the LC – The Les Mills Fitness Revolution Gets Swansea Moving
“It is contagious. It has an atmosphere like no other fitness class. It gets results fast.”
Devotees of Bodycombat and Bodyattack will understand the effusive tone in Jaynaya Boyle’s description of the Les Mills fitness method.
It is a revolution in choreographed movement that has reached just about every corner of the globe since the New Zealand Olympian started serving up high intensity group workouts in the 1960s - and Swansea’s LC is now one of the few leisure and fitness centres to offer its exacting classes in South West Wales.
Les Mills Bodyattack and Bodycombat classes have now been added to the LC’s packed programme of classes and fitness.
Janaya says: “Once word gets out about Les Mills classes, people flock to them because they aren’t like any other fitness classes. They are very well choreographed, the music is exciting, and so much scientific research goes into the routines – focusing on high reps using low weights - that they are very effective.
The ethos behind Les Mills Body series is that you can clock on at a class anywhere from LA to the LC and you will get the Les Mills experience to a tee – the routines, music and attitude is replicated all across the vast Les Mills network.
That’s not to say it is predictable, says Jaynaya: “Every three months the Les Mills routine are refreshed and updated so it keeps everyone - the instructors and the client - interested and engaged.”
LC General Manager Emma Allchurch said: “Here at the LC we are always looking for ways to expand and to improve what we offer to the people of South Wales and we are delighted to be able to team up with Les Mills International to offer these very popular Bodycombat and Bodyattack classes. I’m looking forward to welcoming our customers to their free Les Mills session. I’m sure it will be the start of a long term love affair for many!”
