Les Mills is a community of like-minded people, with a culture that celebrates inspiration, energy and good health. We pride ourselves on being brave – the ones who turn up their sleeves when it comes to hard work. The ones that scream ‘hell yeah’ when the instructor barks ‘ten more’. Those who view sweat on their brows like a crown of achievement. The ones who don’t just step up, they turn it up, because they want results.
Values are something hard to describe. You’ll get the best sense of what ours are when you take on one of our group fitness classes or team training programs. It’s in the atmosphere, in the music, and in the energy you have when you’ve finished your workout. But when we do put our values in words, we talk about One Tribe being brave and making the world a fitter planet.
Behind the amazing culture of Les Mills are our people, who are on global quest to change lives. We call ourselves a Tribe, which means we’re all working towards the same goal to make the world a fitter planet. We’re brave, motivated and enthusiastic about the future of fitness. And along the way, we ensure everything we do is world-class.
The Les Mills Tribe are fitness warriors. We have created our own powerful warrior-call, based on a traditional Maori haka - a native tribal war dance from our indigenous New Zealand Maori people, often performed at ceremonies and as a welcome, challenge or celebration. The Les Mills haka was created by New Zealand’s leading Kapa Haka specialist (a traditional Maori performing arts group), and it holds a clear, compelling message about one Tribe working together to overcome obesity and sedentary lifestyles.
